    END OF THE OLYMPICS.

Finally the Summer Olympic games are over and done with.  And although I've always believed the Olympic Games to be a total waste of time, not to mention the fact that most of host nations for the games use them as a form of bragging rights, ie; "hey, look at us!  They're staging the Olympics in our little country, so we're better than the rest of you, n'yah, n'yah, n'yah," there are still a few deluded saps who love the so-called "pageantry" of the games.  Still, I am happy to learn that the majority of gold and silver medals were won by the American athletes, most of whom were women, which I'm sure came as quite a shock to the macho sensibilities of the men of Rio where this year's summer games were held.  And, as usual, there were moments of totally unsportsmanlike conduct as when an Israeli won the judo competition against an Egyptian.  And when the Israeli extended his hand, the Egyptian refused to shake it.  This illustrates the fact that many countries hosting the Olympics will use them for political purposes, such as Nazi Germany which used the 1936 Olympics to showcase the alleged superiority of the so-called "Aryans," only to see that illusion evaporate when an African American, Jesse Owens, soundly beat Germany's best in track and field and a white American, Don Budge, totally humiliated Germany's Baron Gottfried von Cramm in tennis.  The bottom line is that the Olympics have become far too politicized.  And that is why I believe the United States should opt out of any future Olympic Games.  They are a waste of time and talent today just as they were a waste of time and talent in ancient Greece.  The sad fact, however, is that while the Summer Games are over, there is still the upcoming Winter Games which will be held in South Korea.  God help us all.

Basically, I've always loved cartoons featuring sexy women.
I am currently retired from the caregiver profession in which I went to the homes of the elderly and gave them personal and basic medical care. Before that, I was in the U.S. Army from 1973 to 1981 where I repaired artillery pieces, in other words, they fired them and I fixed them. But through it all, I've always been a cartoonist. Tried to sell my various works with no luck. That is why I am happy for sites like Deviantart where I can share my cartoon work with an outre twist with like-minded artists.

I apologize if I'm not seeing it...do you have a request/trade/commission policy?  I'd love to know what it'd take to get Lois into an Oakland Raiderette uniform!

Perhaps when football season comes around again I will put Lois into a Raiders cheerleader uniform.  I also plan to put her in a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader outfit.

You can draw girls so perfect!
I've an idea for you (it's no request):

A beauty contest with all the girls, which you know or like or have used in your gallery.
Maybe you could take Donna and Roberta (The Cleveland Show) too?

That's an interesting idea, but for now I don't have the time for a project like that.  I've got other projects in the works, but thank you for your suggestion.    :) (Smile)

Hello Kiff,

I thought I'd just drop a line since our last discussion about my web comic 'The Dragon Fists of Smorty Smythe.'
Did you review it and if so what did you think overall? Who was your favorite character?

If you want a membership to view everything its free and gives you full access to the site and lets you select favorites and bookmark your progress.

Talk to you soon,
Emjar.

Thank you kindly for the offer.  What I like about your Smorty Smythe character is that he is a parody of nearly all the classic martial arts movie characters, a subject that I am quite familiar with.  Plus, Smorty bears a resemblance to Warner Bros' Elmer Fudd which I find very funny.
