So you might notice some changes around here. First I redid the Bearman Cartoons logo. Not entirely happy with it but I am still tweaking.
The second came from a comment on Reddit from someone calling himself GodShapedBullet. He said “I think the comics might be funnier if you lead with them. Nothing ruins a joke like explaining it.” Since most of my stuff was topical and you all probably haven’t heard about the situation, I had been putting the cartoon last. But he had a point so going forward I’ll try to put the cartoon first.
George Ford gave me the idea for this cartoon. He came up with it but never could figure out how to make it fit with the story lines he had going. Now why he gave it to me I dont’ know because it isn’t topical humor. But I had fun with it. Arctic Blast and EQ Comics have strips about crazy Frosty’s right now.
I think the most prolific snowman cartoons come from Tundra cartoonist Chad Carpenter. I thought for sure he would have done this idea and spent 20 minutes going through his archive. Now he may have done it but I couldn’t find it.

You know, you can always tell when a snowman eats by what he leaves behind when it gets warmer.
Usually mud and grass.
at least it wasnt yellow snowman
Don’t rule out suicide for this one. It’s hard times for snowmen, lately, and with the looming threat of global warming, a lot of them just give up ahead of time.
Could be the reason there was no blood found at the scene.
Global warming, my FROZEN ass!! =) …. I have icicles hanging from my testicles it’s so cold! As for that snowman, he may have faked his death actually!! Who’s to say that carrot of evidence was actually HIS?!?!?!
Who’s to say that is a carrot and not snowman poop.
It ain’t suicide. Whoever did this must have ice water in his veins. That can cause a complete melt down. I like the new look but then, I liked the old one too.
Now if I could get someone to make me cool banner ads.
Get people to feel sorry for you. It works for me all the time. Barry Buchannon made mine for my Gatorhead site.
I’ll see what I can do. 🙂
Cool I want it animated, I want it to blow up big if someone hovers over it, I want it to automatically click on my site if someone casually glances at it…hmmm I could go on.
Umm…let’s just settle for animated, okay? 😀
how one takes constructive criticism speaks volumes about their character bearman. the fact that george ford gave you the idea for this post tells me he thinks highly of you and do we all. you both get two thumbs up!
I have you all as regulars. If I didn’t have a thick skin I would have stopped long ago..ha ha j/k
and a blogger’s ass 🙂 Don’t forget the blogger’s ass Bearman !!!!
I keep telling you my ass is fine.
I agree with Lynn. Two thumbs up!!
i really need to start proofreading my comments. 😕
Why…then we would have one less thing to make fun of you for.
oh i’m quite sure i give you enough even without my fat -ingered typing.
Cool trackback feature, but my strip is called ‘Arctic Blast!’. I think you were thinking of old newspaper strip ‘Arctic Circle, lol. Actually I think that one got dropped by the syndicates… 😀
Sorry fixed. I think it was your talk about Snuffy and Family Circle that got me all confused.
Haha, it’s all good. Great strip today, btw. Big fan of the frosty humor, lol.
Love the new logo…. And this comic is just lovely!
Thanks john…what grades did you get??
You did a very good job on this, Bearman, as I knew you would. Lynn is right. I think a lot of your “hack” talent and I felt you’d be the perfectly-styled cartoonist for this comic. And I was correct (as usual). 😀
You are never wrong.
don’t forget i was right too! whoo-hoo!
You are never wrong either Lynn. At least when it comes to praising me.
Oooohh for goodness sakes get a room 🙂
sorry im late… bearman and lynn are getting it on!??? what??? found kissing in the tree!???? u mean k i s s i n g.???
and what’s so wrong with that? i see susi didn’t waste any time getting comfortable….something tells me she and loon are gonna get on just fine. wait! did we highjack your blog bearman?
Ladies Ladies Ladies. You are all too late. Already taken.
??? add ‘spineless’ after blooded???
ooh….why aren’t you ghost writing for me too.
I didn’t know I wrote spooks for any blighters! Where’s my credits?
it’s the blogosphere dave, everyone gets credit!!
I am still trying to figure out “spooks for blighters” Dave and his Hambo language.
I personally liked your old site banner better. But I do like the idea of putting the comic first in the post.
Always has to be a hater. haha. You just liked my cool animation.
Yeah, I kinda did 😛
Would it put be considered disturbing the evidence if I sauteed that guys nose?! 🙂
Only if you are ok that it might not have been stuck in his face.
You mean that may not have been his NOSE?!! Wow, no wonder the ladies loved Frosty the Hoe Man.
frosty the ho man…that’s damn funny.
Now I’ve completely lost my appetite for vegetables!
So much for my eating healthier resolution!
and a thief…where’s his eyes, mouth and arms? And I’m almost positive he was smoking a pipe.
I was going to put those in evidence bags but I got lazy.
psst Bearman….a little trap….if you are going to put your cartoon first make sure you fill out all the description, caption, title crap before you post because you can easily lose Google rankings. The spiders recognize text before images . Make sure, if possible, to name your cartoon the title of your post , instead of say cartoon 234. and use all your keywords when describing the image 🙂 .
No one finds me through google anyway. Maybe you can do a post on the abc’s of web promotion. I never seem to get all that stuff.
that case will never be solved?
The evidence is melting in the coronors office as wek speak.
OK, I WAS CONFUSED WITH IT AT FIRST! I THOUGHT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT A KILLER RABBIT WITH THE COP HOLDING THE CARROT. IF I WOULD HAVE SEEN TWO BUTTONS ON THE GROUND AND A HAT I WOULD HAVE FIGURED IT WAS A SNOWMAN RIGHT OFF. DO NOT MEAN TO BE A CARTOON CRITIC BUT FROM YOUR STORY I THOUGHT THIS WOULD HELP IMPROVE THE JOKE. THEN YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT!
That’s what I get for being lazy.
LAZY YOU CALL IT, WHAT ABOUT WANTING TO HURRY TO GET IT DONE???? I FIND MYSELF IN A RUSH ALOT THESE DAYS, THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH TIME TO DO EVERYTHING I WANT TO DO EVEN SLEEPING ONLY FOUR HOURS A DAY…..
I give myself about an hour to do a cartoon from start to finish. Sometimes it is longer if I am doing a caricature and can’t get it right.
Its a drive-by melting.
Was going to leave a hair dryer on the scene but then the next day I saw Brogans’ cartoon and he would have thought I was in his mind or something.
I wonder, if pink snowmen melt does that mean hot-blooded killers?
I don’t know. But I could tell you what yellow snowmen mean??
Are they sure they know what the carrot is? Could of died a “happy” snowman – if you know what I mean.
Depends which end was stuck where.
Maybe the snowman got a high temperature and just had to sweat it out? Personally I think he was a bit of a drip.
Can snowmen get H1Ni?
Nobody likes cold pig.
That’s why Jammers got a divorce!!! 🙂
Are you referring to Jammers or his ex?
Thumbs up 🙂 You always seem to make me laugh, Can I please print this out
Okay, folks, here’s the thing. Notice the eyes, nose and mouth are missing. This is a clear cut case of the snowman outgrowing his old snow balls, and exchanging them for a bigger set. The carrot was left because he don’t like carrots.
Bugs and Roger 🙂
Another California smowman….
Thought those were made out of wet sand.
Redid the header once again. Dithering in the old one that was driving me nuts. Now it looks better.
The newest header looks 1000% better. It’s a keeper now.
The death of intelligence?
The new logo is really SHARP. I like it.
The toon is pretty funny too!
Thanks. Now that I got the dithering out, I like it more and more. Trying to do something consistent between the site and the cartoons.
