The Versatile Blogger Award


Last week, Captain Kirt of To Baldly Go . . . honoured me with this Versatile Blogger Award, the sweetie! He said some awfully nice things about me too, viz., "Debra blogs about life in Canada, she's genuine and a joy to read." Oh, you're making me blush! Thanks so much!

Captain Kirt is a talented cartoonist and illustrates his blog with his own work. He's got a charming style and produces such great toons! Here's two perfect examples showing The Captain engaged in a couple of his favourite recreational activities --



Now I'm supposed to tell you seven facts about myself, but here's the only one that counts today. I love quality cartooning! Always have, always will. I've been an avid fan of many cartoonists over the years, both mainstream and underground. I adore practically all cartooning styles and subject areas -- political, satirical, daily life, feminist, lesbigay, superheroes, just plain crazy, anything! Hell, I even love Garfield!

And I admire anyone who has the talent to produce their own cartoons. That's why I'm going to nominate for this award all my other favourite bloggers who habitually illustrate their blogs with their own cartooning work! Like Captain Kirt's, their cartoons bring joy to my life! If you don't already know their blogs, please check them out!

I do love blogs that have a bit of art to them. A Beer for the Shower was the only one of those I knew of so I guess I have a lot of things to check out.

Miss Val's Creations said...

You deserve the award! These are some fun cartoons here. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

You gave the award to some of my favorite bloggers, although I don't know the last one. I love Cheryl's two Cheryls who talk to each other, or argue. Mayor Gia makes me laugh, and no one could be nicer than the Beer Boys. I don't know why they tolerate me.

Love,
Janie

A Beer For The Shower said...

We're flattered and honored to be listed here with some other great cartoonists, all of whom we hold dearly in the pit where our shriveled, black hearts should be (I don't know what the hell Janie's talking about us being 'nice'). Oh, and thank you, truly, from the bottom of our beards.

He's right, you are a joy and a delight to read. A well deserved honor. Also, I love that you themed your giving of the award. I used to draw, but I used to draw freehand then scan it in and my new computer doesn't play well with scanners. Stupid Apple, I curse (at) the ghost of Steve Jobs!

JACKIESUE said...

I've loved cartoonists since I was a kid and my daddy would read the funnies to me.

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Congratulations on the award. You certainly deserve it!
All cool bloggers that you've listed. Two of the four are already blogging pals. I'll have to check out the others.
