Giraffe Boy

Giraffe Boy

 Giraffe Boy (a.k.a. Monte Parker) is the imaginary son of Giraffe Man (a.k.a. Clovis Parker). Giraffe Man was created by John Oak Dalton. Giraffe Boy was played by Thomas Nelson III on an episode of The Adventures of Giraffe Man. The Adventures of Giraffe Man is a regular series on Tom Cherry’s Old Time Radio Show. Tom Cherry’s Old Time Radio Show is performed at the Farmland Community Center (100 North Main Street, Farmland, IN) every fourth Saturday of the month at 3:00 pm.

My Recent Comic Haul (4/23/17)

Golden Gail

Astro City #43

Black Hammer #8

Deadly Class #27

Kamandi Challenge #3

Royal City #2

SpongeBob Comics #67

Super Sons #3

The Walking Dead #166

Purchased at Bob's Comic Castle. Total amount: $33.08

Notes- The last time I did one of these was in 2015! I have no idea why I lapsed with the comic hauls, because I've kept buying comics since November of '15. Let's blame it on pure laziness and move on!...Is Maris Wicks no longer doing the "Flotsam and Jetsam" feature in SpongeBob? If so, my heart is broken!...Although comic book collecting is not a competition, Black Hammer and Deadly Class are the top of the heap for this rather decent haul.

Golden Gail was created by Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston for their great comic book, Black Hammer (Grab an issue and see!).

All I Seem to Post Nowadays Are Placemat Drawings


Sometimes ideas for radio shows and placemat drawings collide while waiting for your fried chicken to arrive. Apparently Neptune has heard of the pirate Captain Betty. Betty returns to Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show in May.

Drawn at Richards Restaurant on April 23, 2017.

Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood?

"Can You Help Me Get Home?"

I met this fellow downtown (Muncie hipsters call it "DOWNTWN") outside a popular bistro Tuesday evening (4/11/17).

Yes, it's another placemat drawing. I made this one at Bob Evans while waiting for my pot roast.

This is also my 1000th post.

Please send gifts.
