Tami! Yes, Thank you.

I was suffering in the SE Utah desert this week, & it took me until today to check my stock of Sheridan art. I did not have a big jpeg of that RR cartoon, since I recall the original was quite small. 550 kb was the best I could do.

At one point in time before he passed away I took photos of all of the cartoons that he had in his collection. I will have to pull them out and print them.

Loyd: If you need someone to scan your photos of Sheridan cartoons & convert them to digital images, I'll be happy to do it for free. I'll send you back your photos & a DVD with the digital images on it.

This retouched version of a classic Valley scene I believe is Sheridan's work.

Nice one Steve! That's just beeyoutifull!

Here's a couple I scanned today out of the 1968 Ascent Magazine. My apologies if they were posted earlier.

This is my first post on SuperTopo, although I've been reading and inspired by this forum for ever.

I got really fascinated by Sheridan Anderson this past year and was able to track down Sheridan's younger brother, Mike-- who just got back from a trip to the Stans (Uzbekistan, etc.!).

Mike's an incredible character in his own right (has hiked the PCT 3 times, gone on cross-country bike treks, illustrated the first Joshua Tree guide book, and has a pretty impressive climbing tick list!). We spent days talking about the two of them (Sheridan and Mike) and tackling this bizarro chest he has that's filled with some incredible Sheridan history-- drawings and letters (probably from many of you on the forum too!) and slides.

Anyhow, in the end, Mike and I figured it would be nice to celebrate Sheridan's life and illustrations (and his upcoming 82nd birthday!) with a little collection of tees... if anyone's interested, they're available at http://www.eccentricpractices.com. Also, been posting some scanned images of things in that bizarro chest on Instagram, http://instagram.com/eccentricpractices.

Super humbled by all the great minds who've chimed in on the thread over the years. Hope this message is received well!

Thanks!

Beautiful old shot from Royal Arches, complete with the "rotten log" in the background!

Following your IG now. The t-shirts are okay but not inspired to buy yet. Would love to buy as soon as I see a design I can use. Love Ms Prim but wife not keen on me wearing that about.

I believe that is supposed to be the ever-enthusiastic Roper belaying the Wonderful Ms Pim. LOL

Steve, noted on the Wonderful Ms Pim, not Ms Prim! What are her origins/back story?

Charlie D and Scrubber, thank you!

Spider Savage, wonderful! We'll be printing more shirts that will hopefully fulfill the requirements of wife-approved and inspiring! Any illustrations that you'd really want to wear?

I'll leave you with a few more slides we were able to scan.

I found out at the the Oakdale Festival that Michael Anderson, Sheridan's younger brother, passed away recently. He was quite a good climber in his own right and very generous with me regarding access to Sheridan's work. Rest in Peace Brother.

Hi from across the pond. I'm the custodian of the Ken Wilson (of Mountain magazine fame during the 1970s and later as book publisher) Photographic archive. I also acquired from KW a few items of interest concerning Sheridan Anderson. The small cartoon is from an inscription in a book given to KW, presumably a SA self portrait with his wife/partner Mary. However perhaps of greater interest is that I have on our wall an original cartoon, namely "Golden Oldies, Tenzing and Hillary". There is a faint inscription to Ken (Wilson) and signed by SA.
I will photograph tomorrow during daylight and post later. I'm also lucky enough to have a copy of "The Climbing Cartoons of SA" by Kelsey & DuMais.

I'm with Fritz on this one: BIG thanks for that, Bookman!
Also to EccentricAl for the photograph of Sheridan in the Sierra Nevada and on Mount San Gorgonio, and from the previous page on the Royal Arches.

Hi... We're a couple goobers with a passion for climbing and mountaineering. We love the history of the sport. More specifically, we really really love the history of the sport in the western United States. The dreamers, the dope-smoking Stonemasters, the dirtbags and fun-hoggers, the legends who walked the Valley floor. With great reverence for those who paved this path before us, we begin our story.

Scan #91 from EP's page shows Norman Clyde and Sherry in all but one frame.

Is this Tom Gerughty at the top? Could he have been the photographer?

I had meant to say that the previous cartoon I posted was dated June 1973, San Francisco.
As promised a photo of the original 'Golden Oldies' (see p.67 of "The Climbing Cartoons...").
You can just about see a faint inscription top right of the drawing which seems to read, "Dear Ken, if you likee (sic), appreciate the grand treatment like in "boulder trundle. Sheridan." The picture measures approx. 12.5" x 14".
If I find anything else I will happily share, regards, Chris Harle (Matlock, England)
