There are a million stories in this big Instructables community. These are a few that deserve to be told. Inspired by the offbeat works of Gary Larson and his Far Side (c) cartoons, I encourage you to figure out what makes these people unique. Be warned, lurking in the forum is addictive. Join the fun.

This is a collection of Instructables Robot cartoons, comics, and funnies that poke and have fun with the Instructables community. A photo image is followed by a scanned image. Notice how a camera "warms" up the picture. I'm still working on how to use the scanner and Photoshop to optimize the scans. Click on the image to download and use for inspiration in your own cartoon.

Disclaimer: Any resemblance to real persons living or dead, robots, droids, or cartoon characters is purely coincidental. Blah, blah, blah...

Not quite like making it big on the cartoon wall of Sardi's but links to where the cartoons first appeared:

This is my salvation from a hard semester of studying and failing! Thanks caitlinsdad, for bringing a rare smile in this Instructabrarian's otherwise forlorn face!

SOYLENT GREEN IS PEEEEEEEEEEOPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALE!!!!!!!!
You sir are a true genius. I too dabble in cartoons but my drawings are usually limited to single characters although I have done some good ones in the past. If I can somehow find the time I may post a few...
caitlinsdad (author)  super moderator5 years ago
Post up a slideshow too! Seems a few instructable members have some artwork posted up on deviantart.com. Some nice work there.
Ok, when I find time I will and I'll let you know. Just one question, what would I classify it under? PS. Like your new avatar
caitlinsdad (author)  super moderator5 years ago
You can title it whatever you want and classify it in broad categories like art and something. Maybe there is a technique or style you want to show off. Just do it. Good luck.

Can you put me in one too?
Derin Derin5 years ago
Please
I don't comment a lot here on Instructables and I haven't published any 'ibles yet as I am more into being an artist and that doesn't translate very well to being an 'ible, but I do look at a lot of stuff on here and I found a few of those toons quite amusing. Thanks!

Awesome drawing skillz
i had a couple good ideas for cartoons i thought would be fun. 1. Seeing tim anderson and eric "ghost riding the whip" to rap music in tims truck 2. i was suing Adrian monk in instructables Chat for wanting to ban me for possibly being a fake in the chatroom because i went to refresh the page.
caitlinsdad (author)  Yerboogieman5 years ago
Then you should make your own cartoon since you are inspired and see something that tickles your funny bone. This stuff is pretty random and I just happened to be around when things happened. Like any other brooding artist, I don't do requests. And, your avatar would need to be something iconic, I can't even read what is on your avatar... :)
Some i make are funny i make but i Cannot draw at all. I used to be able to draw a 3D car i can't now.

caitlinsdad (author)  Yerboogieman5 years ago
If you can't really draw, then learn by starting to hack other cartoons that are funny and apply to the joke. Take one of those liquid whiteout correction pens and block out something in the cartoon. Then go over it in pencil or marker to create your new cartoon. No better way to learn than by imitating and then develop a style of your own. Or put words in other people's mouths by changing captions or word bubbles. Have fun!

This makes more sense than putting them on your Orangeboard-I guess I'll have to post a Slideshow before it is forefront on my mind.
For those confused

"Plagarize, don't synthesize." It was funny before and it's still funny, kinda like the universal laws of physics. I think the penguin got his fence fixed though.
Just a bit of friendly teasing...I actually think that's a clever take on the classic version. :)
caitlinsdad (author)  Lithium Rain6 years ago
No offense taken...if you can't make fun of yourself, then make fun of others...in a good way. A lot of people weren't even around when The Far Side appeared in newspapers and print. I guess you have to be ubergeeky to understand. If you are familiar with his works, you may be carbon dating yourself like Goodhart...haha.
Oh, yes, I am very familiar with The Far Side...I guess that makes me a dinosaur! :)
