Cartoons, anyone?

There's this guy named Francis Heaney who writes (the blog Heaneyland! and a recent book), creates crossword puzzles, and draws hilarious cartoons called "Six things." The cartoons are posted right smack dab in the middle of his blog every day or three, and each has six drawings on a single theme. For example, the kid song "This Old Man" doesn't cover all the numbers. On June 13, Heaney offered up six new verses, including "he played pi, he played knick-knack on my eye," with a sketch of a guy exclaiming, "hey, that was my EYE, you fucking idiot." June 14 features "strategies for coping with life if you were created by a mad scientist. Panel four: "if you destroy everything and kill everyone, who will be left to love you?" Indeed. Indeed.

Go check out the cartoon archives. If you like the dry weirdness and doodly drawing style of Roz Chast, you'll enjoy six things.

Those cartoons are marvellous. I spent quite a bit of time going through his archives last night. I like the photoblogging-as-cartooning motif.

sounds like just my style--the kind of thing that you totally "get", but are in complete awe of, at the same time....
