Show notes: “The Show Must Go On…Later” In this solo episode we have an update and details on the upcoming MSCA art show at the Germantown Community Theatre. Bad news, it and the play “The Complete History Of America (abridged)” have been pushed back until February due to COVID. Good news– that means any interested Mid-South Cartoonists Association members still have a couple extra weeks to get their art in. The art is due by Tuesday, February 8th for it to be hung and available for viewing February 17-27, 2022. This is one of our 35th anniversary events, and we’re working on a couple more. If you have any ideas for ways for us to celebrate, or would like to be on this podcast please contact me at podcast (at) drawingfunny (dot) com. I’d love to hear from you.
Some sad news to share, as I was finishing up this episode I learned that Mid-South Cartoonists Association founding member Sam Ray died back in December, 2021. Sam was a great cartoonist/writer & created his “Business As Usual” comic strips which were published in The Commercial Appeal, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Boy’s Life, Reader’s Digest, Barron’s, Woman’s World, Forbes, and the first MSCA anthology comic book. He was also a ghost-writer on the “Hagar The Horrible” strip for six years, illustrated the book “Sane Investing For The Non-Financial”, and self-published a collection of his Business As Usual cartoons.
He was incredibly laid back & known to offer friendly advice with soft-spoken words to his fellow cartoonists at many an MSCA dinner meeting- usually while drawing a funny chicken, duck or penguin. Sam and his talent will be missed.✏️😢
Shameless plug alert: I have several of my hand drawn sketchcards and a few sketchcovers available for sale at a comic shop here in Memphis- The Cellar. There are both official artist returns cards from companies like Topps, Breygent, Cryptozoic, and RRParks Cards and personal sketch cards drawn on my own custom blanks- with more to come soon. Just dropped these sketchcards (above) off to the shop this week. If you’re interested in buying any of them please contact the shop. I don’t do commission work so this is the only way to currently purchase/collect any of my art from me.
If you stop by The Cellar in person be sure to snag some free Drawing Funny podcast and MSCA swag. Lots of buttons, stickers and sketchcard blanks are available while they last.
Stay warm, and stay tooned..!
