Fri, Oct 17 - Doubles! As promised last week, when circumstances determined that there wouldn't be a new Bob the Angry Flower cartoon way back then, we now put two cartoons together this week, even as while it's done it's now obvious that it shouldn't be done this way, because they sorta mix together without either meaning anything. Nonetheless, here's the first new strip, from last week, so not that new at all, and it's Shocking! But it's simply not enough for Bob the Angry Flower cartoon fans, hungry afer a week of no rations, so it is immediately followed by this other strip which is intented to crumble the very fundamentals of our society, insofar as cartoons may!
Fri, Oct 3 - More Years Now that most of us with important birthdays have gotten them out of the way, it's time to simply consider: what now? Once the meaningful people have squared away their birthdays between now and the end of the year, it seems trivial and pointless to spend even a second or a handfull of characters talking about how those "people" might feel about the rest of the closing of the year. So, let's talk about APE! That's the , this very weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct 4-5, at the Fort Mason Center in we-hope-and-pray sunny San Francisco, a white box filled with alt cartoonists, end to end! We used to hang out and do our annual thing in the Mission District in an old train station. I'm told they're tearing that old train station down, so all us alternative press expositors gotta relocate back to where we were fifteen some years ago, the aforementioned white box right next to water and a bunch of sea lions! But what of the SatireFest the following weekend? What of that impossible collusion of alt cartoonists, everyone from Jen Sorenson to and including everyone in between and beyond besides, folks like , fer instance? Do come out this weekend to check out all the wonderful comicry going on! Do, do! And then be present twice as hard for SatireFest, where enormous political cartooning action will be abundant!Halfweek I'll be down in San Francisco for the next week and a half, and that means I won't be around to update next Friday. So sorry, readers, you get a cartoon this week and none the next week. Is it faint consolation to know that you'll get two cartoons the week after next? I will leave it to your hearts to decide. Right now, though, there's an immediacy, a drawn tale of humor and stuffness, and it's calledTed RallKeith KnightMatt Bors to Alternative Press Expo
Fri, Sep 26 - Well then what now Ah, yes. Another week of time has rolled around and delivered a need to post another new update.It's both odd and curious how one can spend four out of the last six days in nothing other than a drunken slow collapse. One would think that the collapse would, at some point, finish collapsing. But it turns out, when one's talking about drinking and birthdays and again another night's worth of wine and gins, that there's no bottom. Or at least not yet. It just keeps happening, like those black holes we've recently been given reasons to believe do not exist in our physical universe. Regardless, in spite of all these nonsensibilities, we have this week a new Bob the Angry Flower cartoon, inscribed in pencil and ink in the following manner:
Fri, Sep 19 - Virgo! Yeah, my birthday's coming up. I'll be a crisp and flabby 44 next Monday. I used to take a lot of pride and satisfaction from sharing a birthday with both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins (in the uncorrected calendar, of course); now I'm nsot so sure if I should. I mean, having the same birthday as a pair of fictional characters? What could that possibly have to do, good or bad, with me? And then I remember: Hobbits. They're hobbits. And then all is reborn anew! Anyway, that has precisely zero to do with this week's strip, a unusually silly bit of trifle called
Fri, Sep 5 - Haaaaaawks! I'm told there was a football game going on here in my city of residence (Seattle!). Well, not told, per se, but certainly informed through every form of computer-asssited commmunication I use. I even put aside for a while my hard-won sports-hating nerd cred long enough to actually not only watch but become invested in the game itself. And Seattle won! WOOOOO!!!! Sports are great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In other news, a Bob the Angry Flower cartoon makes an appearance right here, right now! It's
Fri, Aug 29 - Newtoon! Hey, folks, who likes new cartoons? You? You? Really, even YOU? Whoa, didn't expect that one, but okay. I have wonderful news for all of you, and it comes in the form of a new cartoon featuring drawings and, yes, words, several of them! It's a blast of a celebration of a party all at once!Fri, Aug 22 - Tmatk Goodness
Fri, Aug 15 - Grayening Not too much, just saying that all the lovely weather we've been enjoying here in Seattle has been grayening, which I mean to say, becoming more gray or grayer. But what could that possibly mean to readers not in Seattle? Nothing, clearly. The only thing that could possibly mean anything to all of us and all of us Mants is the next current instalment of some sort of Mant story, in this instance it being called
Aug 8 - diving from summer Yep, it's getting up to the first week, closely collowed by the second week, of August, and all you folks who read this cartoon here at angryflower.com know what that means: a blithering nonsensical post about the passing of time! I'll keep this one short, as I have kept all the recent updates short for reasons of drunkenness, stupidity or outright lies. I'm still gathering strength from my return from the GWMF, which was so powerful I feel enervated after, and in addition I'm collecting many thoughts in the wake of my recent receivement of an actual for real American Green Card. After nine years of life in the United States, I think I'm prepared to be a permanent resident. Time will surely tell! So what's on offer this week? Oh, only the striking, startling new edition of Mant, to wit Yep, Mant's still in the hopper. What could ever click click click become of him?
