Big, Big THANK YOU to Joker .... :)

1 & 2 . I just could not believe this .... Joker had put the first 50 of my cartoons into a book, but not just any book, a proper hardbacked, glossy paged book ..... I was speechless ... how do you react to something like that? .... I was just overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness and generosity ...

I now have to give serious thought to getting something like this published in order to raise funds for ELF (the Elimination of Leukeamia Fund) in memory of Alex. My reservations are that anything that is printed and published to a high standard (ie hardback and glossy) will be so very highly priced that little of the of the sale price will go to the fund .... it is also a very limited market ..... and I am not even sure that the pics and
poems warrent publishing ... they are, and always will be, my little bit of fun on a Friday ..... I would love to raise funds in this way, but I just think that something like this would probably make more money for the printers than it would for the fund ..... am I being too cynical here ? ..... I am just so grateful to Joker ... I would never had got it together myself ..... and it has certainly made me think ..... more big hugs to Joker and Cola :)

4. MF, in all his glorious hairiness :)

P :) ..... the whole point of the pic was to show the hairiness of MF, which I think it does fairly well .... it also gives a tantalising glimpse of the hidden hairiness ... note the chest hairs just poking over the T-Shirt ....

MaggieD says:

Thanks folks :) .... if it works out that the book is econimically viable, as far as raising funds for ELF is concerned then I will certainly go ahead ......

What a wonderful man Joker is! He did of course have wonderful material to work with.

If you do get a book published, i will buy one for all of my siblings (that's 5) and for BB, at the very least!

Again, what a neat thing for Joker and Cola to do. I think we need some here. and m_f is disappointingly non-hairy. but he does have a sherrif's badge.

MaggieD says:

Thanks for all your positive feedback :)
Am a bit tied up with other things at present, but I will certainly give this some serious thought. A book of Moblog cartoons dedicated to the memory of Alex (and raising funds for ELF) could be quite fitting, he had such a wonderful sense of humour and he did love the blog and was very appreciative of all the love and support he got from you guys :)
