OK, if you have seen any of my mental health cartoons comics by now, you may have concluded my drawing style is that of a ‘gag’ cartoonist. Also know as a magazine or single cell cartoonist. I was ‘drawn’ to this style from my love of Gary Larson’s The FAR SIDE series. I would read his books over and over again almost to the point of obsession! My favorites were “The Far Side Observer,” “The Chickens Are Restless,”and of course, “Last Chapter and Worse: A Far Side Collection.”
Gary Larson’s sense of humor resonated within me and evoked a feeling of shared humorous comradery. Larson’s work came into my life when I was a young boy just hitting the awkward tween years. I was around 12 when I saw my first Far Side in the Sunday Paper in Boston. Living in a dysfunctional family filled with violence, verbal and physical abuse, I found comfort within his humor.
I love The Far Side Too!!! Larson could always make me laugh and I can see a bit of his influenced in your Mental Health humor Chato. Thanks for the laughs… Oh, and I love the new cartoon for Calvin and Hobbs both funny and true.
Thanks for the strategies presented. One thing I also believe is the fact credit cards supplying a 0% rate of interest often entice consumers in with zero interest rate, instant acceptance and easy on the web balance transfers, nonetheless beware of the number one factor that may void the 0% easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and also throw one out into the terrible house rapidly.
I have looked everywhere including a page by page search of my copy of the Complete Far Side, but have not been able to locate the Gary Larson cartoon that depicts the following: two people sitting in an auditorium with a banner over head “Welcome to the Annual Reunion of dysfunctional Families.” Can you point me in the right direction?
