Blurb...

Hello there blog-fans! As you may know I'm putting together a compendium of cartoons and I'd love for your input. Basically, all you have to do is write a bit of blurb that'll go on the back of the book, y'know, like the kind of stuff that goes on movie posters and dustjackets - 'a swirling blend of mystery and romance' Robinson Nobber, The Times - except I want you to make it funny. Stuff like 'not the worst drawings I've ever seen...' or 'one joke made me smile', or maybe something that involves some clever word play or a joke. If you like, you can even make up your own phoney source or an alias to attribute the quote to, like '...made of really good quality paper' Paper Grade Review. As long as its funny I don't mind (but don't make it too mean, heck, I have got feelings you know). Send your quotable quips to the box below, and thanks in advance!

how about this: "ROBERT BRYAN SMEDLEY has no practical skills to speak of but on a good day can produce a marginally amusing drawing of the arse-end of a zebra."

"The Times believes that ROBERT BRYAN SMEDLEY's cartoon pen is mightier than the sword, and besides, he doesn't wear a scabbard."

Eight ounce prime filet mignon, medium rare, walks into a bar. Bartender says, "What'll you have?" Filet mignon says, "I'll have ROBERT BRYAN SMEDLEY's stunning new Compendium of Cartoons from BLURB press, 2008." "You?" says the bartender, "you're a filet mignon!" "Sure," says the filet mignon, "but I have good taste!"

Last one, I swear...

"ROBERT BRYAN SMEDLEY'S father did look a little bit like Gary Larson back in about 1985, but that's as far as it goes. It was his mother before him that was a dead-ringer for Bill Watterson. He himself may very well pass for 30 while in Newcastle upon Tyne."
