I can't think of anyone that brought more humor and joy into what can be a rather dreadful and serious sport than Sheridan Anderson. Forever grateful for all the laughs EL wherever you are. My favorite portrait of the man in splendid company from Ascent 74.

Tami, remember the illustrations you did for the "This ain't the Cascades, Jack" article in the CAJ? That'd be a hundred years ago or so, but they were pretty good.

If I could find that issue, I'd scan em and post em, if only my scanner wasn't broken.

David I have a very vague memory of those drawings for This Ain't The Cascades Jack. I spoze that hunk of brain memory circuitry has blown. Hey I smell smoke ; urgghhh it's comin' from my ears. I've lost quite a few of the originals thatteye did. Urgggh encore........

Thanks Ed for the vote o' confidence. Not only did I manage to be a diffrin't generation then Sheridan, I'm also a different gender and nationality too ;-D

There really is a dearth of cartoonists in the climbing community tho' and Steve G is rite about climbin' being "dreadful & serious". Editors are not willing to take chances on publishing cartoons or so I"ve been told.

They want the glorious drama of death.

It's only been through the kindness of guys like David - who posts here as Ghost - who put my stuff out there. Twenty years ago David put together my first two comic books. In '94 Michael Kennedy asked me to be in Climbing Mag. Then, just as I was getting the boot from that ( yes I was fired ), Christian Beckwith started Alpinist & he asked me to send him stuff. The books I've drawn or illustrated have all been because somebody called me - never because an editor responded to my query.

I bet it was the same with Sheridan. Folks who knew his work helped him gettit published. But his circle of influence was small & sadly never extended beyond The First Circle.

So the zap to this is why the f*#k are climbers so funny, goofy, hilarious, silly and yet only one magazine ( Alpinist ) will publish humour?

Oy, vey

Well, I've got a big map case in the basement, full of art from all kinds of jobs. Dunno if your CAJ illustrations are in it or not, but I'll look. If I find them I'll sell them back to you for a thousand dollars each. Canadian dollars, that is, not the funny-munny they use down here.

SHERIDANS work is what we bit our teeth on , thank God someone still remembers his mastery of capturing the sport and the times. His work speaks 100x more then words..... He'd have more insightful work since his passing then ever imaginable. So few in our sport are actually pushing it forward nowadays.....

I remember stumbling across his article about Grandstaff in a local Vegas mag. Then Sheridan was gone.
Then Randy.


So glad to see his stuff live on.
We need to do one for Randall too.
