11/11/2009 - a date that will live in infamy! Well OK, it was Veteran's Day too.... but out of the blue at 9:26 AM, I received an email from Edwin Bonzell Dragonman! He revealed that he has been an 18 wheel truck driving man. Wow!

As Billman says, I'm hoping this will usher in a whole new era of cartoons. More to come.

Where can I find a Harpo Horn?

Looking for one like this that I can attach to my easel. (yes more annoying cartoon sounds). This is also a test of "sidewiki" a part of the Google Toolbar which promises to post to Facebook, Twitter and Blogger all at once.

in reference to:

"If I only had a Harpo Horn... ... everyone would want to honk it."

Mickey (the Munchkin) Carroll
1919 - 2009

I had the good fortune to meet Mickey when he appeared at the Meadowbrook Mall some years ago. As I got out my digital camera to capture some video, he did a quick little tap dance. Will post the video as soon as I find it.

CartoonSteve site FINALLY revived!

After a DECADE* of neglect, I've decided to make some changes to my web site. Its not quite what I ultimately want to do but its a start. Soon there will be more cartoon and animation samples, including an interactive area where viewers can watch cartoons and documentaries and chat/talk/view... even draw and watch my webcam live for impromptu collaborations and quick drawing demos. I may do a regular scheduled "cartoon talk" video podcast. New exciting projects are in the works.

OK and now for the first hint on my upcoming top secret animation project...
No its not 3D or claymation (though that sounds fun). More hints to come! Oh, by the way, below is one more look at my original site (before) sniff... kinda hate to see it go.

*I estimate that I first built the site sometime in the mid 90s. Back then I could only connect via text based telnet dialup, typing the html manually. I would scan the artwork on college lab computers and save to disc. Those were the days.

Reminds me of the hardship era of danger and peril - the exhausting chore involved in getting type set in the dark ages. Big film drums... giant floppy discs... hot wax... rubber cement... xacto knives! Ahhhhhhh!

Ok I'll calm down.
