@ Henri - depending on which way you look at it you have a flatulent contortionist standing on his chin (who, incidentally, is shaped like a drumset and whose face is a reso head) ... or you have a hybrid between a 4-armed woman drummer and her kit (which has a face-like design on the reso head).


@ Luke - I think you perfectly captured the feeling we have when we see someone who kicks our sorry drumming ass ... it makes you feel clumsy, gauche and really unhip. Actually, that's in my past. I don't feel like that any more because so many people here have told me sweet lies when I've posted my playing :)

As I said on another thread, I may not be one of the cats ... more like a hamster ... but happy with my hamster-ness. As a great muse once said, "it's hip to be square"

And yes, it's supposed to be QC. Good that at least someone's on the ball


@ Ian ... yes, plead, whimper, grovel ... that's how I like it, my friend ... to smell the fear ... to see the whites of your eyes as the knife twists ...

Do you have a closer face shot? It's hard to be brutal from a distance :) Arky's shots are great - perfect hehehehe

But you're wrong, there were no lies ;)

The optometrist beckons :)

If I could do something like that I'd be ... shocked? Picasso? Dead and in heaven??

When I was doing digital art, Picasso filled the place in my life that Steve Gadd and Pretty Purdie do today - and the influence was even more obvious http://www.sangrea.net/rijidij/featured.htm

LOL again - that comparison's too funny!

Ta for the thumbs up, Abe, but for now digital art is on the backburner. Thinking of getting back into writing again ... a dilettante to the end :)

Abe, all the grooves I've heard from you are crisp, energetic and with finely weighted internal dynamics. Maybe they're flubby against the Gadds and Dicensos, but well and truly out of my league!

Looking forward to Ian's reaction ... it's not hard to transform photos - a few minor adjustments and anyone can be spooky :)

Geeez!!! Was my first impression. Then looking at the details...bits and pieces put together...Wow! Unbelievable was my second reaction due to the time and dedication you have spent on the sort of photo transformation job.
Grea/Polly - You are an artist beyond drummer making a legend minotaur out of me...By the way, I won't have a fight to kiss you twice with those lovely teeth! hahaha :-)

Thanks for signing off my floor tom batter head..!

A big hug for you! :)

He did earlier on, Ian. Sadly, I flubbed it. One of my bestest buds on this site and I failed with the caricature :(

Ian, you know whose signature is on the batter head, don't you? :)

These things always end up with a fair bit of detail - a tweak here and a tweak there until no element of it is too jarring. A bit like drum part arrangements.

Yeah! My daddy - Ian Paice. That title you granted me the other day: Ian Paice's Love Child fitted like a glove. You are pleasing me too much my dear! :*)

They end up "Beautiful and Totally Free." That's your "Art". The old Latin saying: Life is short and Art is long.

She did. Its there somwhere near the begining of the thread. I have a lower lip that got stung by a bumblebee, my one eye is melting off my face like a Salvador Dali painting and I look an ugly18. Other than that, its spot on ; )

Can't say, Henri.

I have heard many carols butchered by little dears who inflict their practice on the public and get more drops than people who can actually play - just because it's cute. Scrooge understood before he was seduced by supernatural thinking.

Default Re: Drumming cartoons

For a thread about drumming cartoons, this is remarkably void of them. Having said that, I don't have one to post myself, but I am looking for one. It was from a 1970's-80's Playboy magazine ( I just read them for the articles). It featured an orchestral tympanist from a perspective over his shoulder. In the distance can be seen the conductor waving his baton. The tympanist's kettles are very cartoonish, resting on tripods of three sticks bound together. Large t-handle tension rods are protruding from the drums. His mallets have large ends and the strings binding them on the shaft can be seen. He is a chubby, somewhat bald character (much like myself) with a few curlycues of hair coming from his smooth head. He has an uncertain look on his face as if he is about to play a difficult passage. His music stand can be seen with this written on the pages:

Boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom,

If anyone can find this cartoon and, better yet, post it, I would appreciate it.

Thank you Uncle Ghee ;)

The 4 portraits of Grea should have been posted in Polly's 10 000 posts tribute thread, but I didn't included them back then, since this thread seems to be lacking in cartoons, I thought it was the right time to upload them :)

The single Grea drawing is inspired from her recent health retreat, lol.

The Guru cartoon is my tribute to the "cappucino" that I love so much.

Zickos, you'll find it on this page: http://www.offthemark.com/cartoons/drummer/

A couple of the others are funny too ... the liver, Willie's ancestor (ha!) and intellectual property.

I wish I'd thought of the "boom boom" idea - it would have been funnier if the drummer was reading his page just like the others ... seriously interpreting the boom booms.

Or was he looking nonplussed because he was expecting proper drum music but some clueless buffoon of a musical director has just notated his primitive notion of drumming??

Nawww ...
