Do You Obsess?


Chato Stewart: [Begging others to vote] {please vote, could U vote, vote, vote, vote}

Caption: Do You Obsess?
Do you obsess about things that really have no huge impact on your life?  You just can't stop letting it preoccupy your mind!  I do, and some of the stuff fills my mind continually, for no reason, and it drives me up a wall! Sometimes I obsess over what I "believe" others are saying about me even if they've only just glanced my way. Instantly, my brain imputes bad motives for the glance.  That falls into my paranoid state and if I catch it in time, I usually recognize and dismiss it as a symptom of my diagnosis.

I've been obsessing about this FC2 LOGO contest. I can't get the stupid thing out of my head. Yes, I want to win, but the prize is only a $50.00 gift card at Amazon. It does not balance out all the work I put into drawing it and promoting it. Gosh, you would think it was for a huge prize the way I've been bugging my Facebook and Twitter Friends about voting for it... SORRY about that peeps!!

UPDATE: Kmart Taking Action On Offensive T-shirts

It's been 5 days since I posted "Kmart Stigmatizes Children With Mental Illness – Selling Offensive T-shirts."  It was more of my own personal rant because I was shocked at the advertisement in a K-mart flyer.  In the published promotion, Juniors' tees were being sold for $9.89 with what I felt was a stigmatizing message.  I took a picture and posted it in the blog post linked above.

On the first shirt it says, "I’M NOT CRAZY! MY IMAGINARY FRIENDS CAN PROVE IT!" And the second T-shirt said: "GONE CRAZY, BACK IN 5 Minutes.

While my Facebook friends got a little vocal (see quotes below)... My twitter peeps took it even a step further. After receiving an e-mail about my post,  Founder, President and Host of The Coffee Klatch* brought the problem right to the source!

Kmart Stigmatizes Children With Mental Illness – Selling Offensive T-shirts

RSS FEED


My rss feed

Today, like every Sunday, I opened the newspaper to see what was new in the world. Then I checked out what was on sale, going through the flyers of local, brand-name stores.  Today, I was shocked at the advertisement in a K-mart flyer.

On the Family Denim Event page, dead center of the layout, was Juniors' tees being sold for $9.89 with a message on the front so stigmatizing that I had to take a picture and post it in today's blog post.

Stigmatic expressions toward mental illness; what I would only have expected to see online has now gone mainstream!

On the first shirt it says, "I’M NOT CRAZY! MY IMAGINARY FRIENDS CAN PROVE IT!" And the second T-shirt said: "GONE CRAZY, BACK IN 5 Minutes.

FDA Warns Of Counterfeit Drug

A few weeks ago, I wrote about pharmaceuticals that could be counterfeit. ("Are your SSRI’s…”SSR-NOTS”?!") Just this week the "FDA has seen an increase of medication fakes hitting our shores."  The meds that CNN was talking about are cancer medications, not psychotropics or common meds for Bipolar, Depression or Anxiety...see: Over-Medicated: Counterfeit Pharmaceuticals – Why YOU Should Be Worried
FDA warns of counterfeit cancer drug - CNN.com

The FDA says a counterfeit version of the anti-cancer drug Avastin may have been purchased and used in practices in the United States.

A counterfeit version of the anti-cancer drug Avastin may have been purchased and used in a number of medical facilities in the United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned Wednesday.

GROSS ALERT – Guy Humor – Rhinotillexomania Idol Contestant 4: Senior Citizen Retirement Home Hobby Nose Picker

When I was drawing the "Nose Pick'en Idol" cartoons, I couldn't help but think of my family. In my last post, I mentioned my grandfather. His name was Luis Couco, 100% Italian. He would carry a handkerchief everywhere, but like I said before, he would never use it.
T.V. Show: Nose Pick'en IDOL

Score: Judge one: 10, Judge two: 10, Judge three: 10

Caption: Senior Citizen Retirement Home Hobby Nose Picker
Why is it senior citizens can get away with picking their nose and making other sounds that we don't get to?  It's simple: they have put their time in.  They have done the work and they can do whatever they want. Yes, senior citizens have done that job.  They can pick until their hair turns gray!

GROSS ALERT – Guy Humor – Rhinotillexomania Idol Contestant 3: Baton Twirling Distraction Pinky Nose Picker

Here is our third contestant in the Nose Picking Idol cartoon series. I call it:  the baton twirling distraction pinkie finger nose picker.  Say that five times fast!
T.V. Show: Nose Pick'en IDOL

Score: Judge one: 5, Judge two: 6, Judge three: 10

Caption: One Leg, two finger nose picker
As I mentioned in my last two posts, the "Nose Pick'en Idol" series is something I started drawing back in 2007. Yes, I get it.  I'm a. . . . . . . . . . procrastinator on some projects! It may be a Bipolar thing. I start so many wonderful IDEAS then never quite finish them.  Not that I think picking my nose is wonderful.  Unless, I get that big dried-out snot with the roots... Ah, you guys know what I'm talking about!

T.V. Show: Nose Pick'en IDOL

Score: Judge one: 6, Judge two: 10, Judge three: 5

Caption: Two Finger ROCKSTAR Nose Picker

In my last post, I told you I started the "Nose Pick'en Idol series back in 2007.  Why did I wait so long before I published it?  Well, first. because the cartoon is made up of  20 different components/cartoons just to make one cartoon.  I drew out each caricature separately and different parts of the stage along with with each judge. It's more of a puzzle than one cartoon. I inked and scanned each part in and slowly cleaned up each image. By the time I was done with the stage and the judges American Idol was over.

The Magazine I was going to try and sell them to, "Bonkers," rejected my first 12 cartoons of "Da Stew-Pid world" but they encouraged me to keep sending them more.  I felt dejected and pissed so I put the cartoons in a file and forgot about them till Saturday, February 4th.

Welcome to the restart of this series (which began back in 2007). It was intended for my cartoon series called "Da' Stew-Pid World" - a series that transformed, naturally, into the Mental Health humor cartoons drawn by me, Chato Stewart.

I drew 5 caricatures/contestants for this made up T.V. show Nose Pick'en Idol... Yes, I was making fun of American Idol at the time.  Habitual nose picking is called Rhinotillexomaniana (Pronunciation: rhī′nō-til-ek-sō-mā′nē-ă).
