Whut reprint thing ? Dideye shoot my mouth off sayin' ther'd be a reprint........of Sheridan's work ?
Joe Kelsey would be yer man to write. Don Lauria graciously ( or foolishly ;-D ) printed his email up-post a bit.
Some of Sheridan's work was in Alpinist 25. The last one. Dang.

I've not been so much quiet but considering my options. Remember no news can be good news. In my case, I"m about to turn 49 and wondering wtf to do with the NEXT 25 big years. SNICKER TEE HEE
Assumin' I got that many.

I just heard that one of my most fave cartoonists has done a 10 yr retrospective of his work & I am inspired by that.
I'm also not presently published in the climbing media c'os Alpinist died. I dunno what might phoenix from the ashes.....I tend to look at clouds and think of silver linings.
OTOH rite now I need to Feed My Family ( will have 2 kids in college as of next year ) and wonder what is a good way to scam the ducats best-like. Legally I mean.
So I'm workin' on that.
In the meantime, I'm still alive and still able to draw and, as long as I do draw breath, will be thinkin' of Evil Ways To Depict Climbers.........ice or no.

Lastly, you write like you know me. I am obvious 'cos I use my first name as a poster........but, you, Rt Hon Eggplantishness, have we raised a glass togther ( or worse ? ;-D ) Or are you the most fine person who , circa 1997, sent me a most wonderful old picture book of the Rockies enclosed in an envelope with Diana stamps and a...........salutation on the envelope?

I still dno't know who that mysterious person was.
It was a VERY generous gift.

Cheers & Best

Tami,

I would loooooove to take credit for the Princess of Hearts memorial keepsake, however I cannot admit to being your stalker (in this case). Unfortunately, I also cannot recall ever having the pleasure of sharing a drink - more's the pity.

The honest answer is that your books have always shared a honoured place on zee bookshelf, next to my William Nealy paddlin' ones (also gone but not forgotten). Soooo when I woz doin my bi-annual google to see if anyone had a spare copy of the Sheridan book, I found this thread, with your name at the top.... I had no choice but to sign up and leave a plea!

Anyway, enough about us - or else this will end up being a personal love fest. More strength to the elbow of all those posting the fantastic Sheridan stuff, it is awesome to see so much stuff I have never seen before. My fave is the calander (which I might have to doctor for 2009....).

Cheers and Merry Crimbo

p.s. Tami - if you are looking to raise some cash, why not sign some of your old lurid spandex and put it on ebay. I can start the stalking proper then...
p.p.s. bring it on with that retrospective!

Thanks to Tami for starting this great thread, and all those that posted cartoons or comments. Special thanks to steel mnkey for two pieces I had not seen: the Obit by Robbins, and the Calendar.

Does anyone still have old Mountain Gazettes, that they can scan & post: "Mabel of the Mountains," another great series of Sheridan's cartoons?

Here is my all time favorite from Sheridan Anderson.

This thread brought back so many wonderful memories! I had the good fortune to spend five months in Camp 4 in 1965 with a handful of climbers and Sheridan Anderson. Since I had a broken arm, Sheridan and I hung out a lot together during the day while others were out climbing. That summer, the tradition was for everyone to report back to him at the end of their day as to how their climb went. The following day Sheridan would be drawing cartoons based on what he had been told.

I have no idea what happened to these dozens if not hundreds of personalized cartoons he drew over the years which were never published. Very stupidly, I also never asked him for those he did of myself and Frank. I wonder if they were passed along in his family?

Certainly the social highlight of Camp 4 in 1965 was the celebration organized by Sheridan to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn. He had drawn a very large, detailed, and colorful cartoon postcard (10 x24 ") which he later mailed to the mayor of Zermatt. That evening however, we all gathered at his campsite to party and make toast after toast to Whymper and the boys.

As we got progressively drunker, the toasts grew louder and louder. Finally around midnight we were yelling out hip hip hooray for each reknowned climber or ascent that had ever been done anywhere in the world. Of course someone called the rangers, who seemed quite flattered and amused to be asked to sign the large cartoon postcard as well, being assured that their names would be forever memorialized in Zermatt. They also suggested that our party should continue down in the meadow where Curry Company employees were also partying out of earshot of the camp grounds, which we did.

So when's the giant Sheridan Anderson coffee table book coming out? And who's working on it...?

Needs to be done, the complete SA...
