Suitopath

In the dark days before the Internet, sometimes the only way for an alternative cartoonist to get published was to do it yourself. I was considered "too vitriolic" for some papers. I used to make photocopies of my cartoons and hand them out for free in Congress Park in Saratoga Springs. Yes, I was a modern day pamphleteer. A friend in Chicago passed some of my work on to Ed at Suitopath. He's a modern day pamphleteer as well. Before I started posting to the internet, Ed posted some of my stuff to his site. Thanks Ed!

hey zen master --

i've made your comix
blog a featured link
on my [very short!] now-
five-links-long[!] blog-
roll. . .

i would like to send
you a check or money order
for say $200 -- to see
what sort of vertical[and that is important,
for my lay-out style!]
three or four panel spoof
of ms. la shawn barber's
views you could rough-out
for me. if i have insulted
you by offering too little,
let me know, and we can ne-
gotiate [here, very publicly]
about what would be fair.

i'm just looking for some
liner art for the 'blog. . .

[s e g u e. . .

oh -- i loved the hunter s.
thompson one -- i spent my
undergrad life in boulder. . .

so, actually, i double majored
in the university of karmic
lives, while there, as well. . .

i saw him many a time on pearl,
and up in aspen. . . pax tecum,
mr. thompson. your latest few
are hilarious, as well. . .

yeah -- i'm suckin' up here.]

p e a c e,

-- tae, out.

okay -- we've a deal.

you can write it on
anything you like; but i
DO like the quartet idea.

we need to work out how/where
i send the money order -- let
me make a proposal -- i could
just leave the $200 with western
union, and send you the password
and numbers to the e-mail box
you mentioned on my spot.

then you can go to any currency
exchange that accepts western
union, and collect it, under
the name you've signed on your
comix -- i assume you have i.d.
under that name.

no one will be able to get the
money, without the passwords i
send you by private email.

cool?

cool.

okay -- if you can, it
would be great if you
left it up here, as a higher
resolution jpeg -- say 500 x
1000 pix or so, just for a day
or two, until i get by to
cache a copy of it -- then, you
can resize it here, and i'll
photoshop it to fit on mine.

deal? i do have a high-end
digital camera, and could make
a very nice optimized jpeg of
the original artwork by shooting, and reducing, it -- but let's
try this route, first. by
tomorrow (fri.) afternoon,
you will receive an e-mail with
the w.u. payment details.

then we'll schedule a day/time
in the next few weeks, when the large version will be uploaded.

cool?
