Activity


Dissinee Gang Band (local meeting flyer)
Flyer for a cartoon-fan meet-up later in October. The location has live music, from blues bands, mostly. Some inspiration from Walt Kelly's "POGO" comic strip. The art contains some tributes to other old-time artists' comic strips and some recent animation.

By Train to BBQ!
This seems to be a chartered train-trip towards the future site of Uptown, Minneapolis City. Circa 1885 (toon-time). This is somewhere in the undeveloped prairie between Saint Paul and Lake Bde Maka Ska, perhaps along the future Lake Street.

Beer Truck #9
From the Spontoon Island setting:

An entry in the Speed Week 'Delivery Truck Rally' of 1936. While this business co-op truck is from the Rain Coast Anarchracy, this small truck was imported several years ago and used for deliveries of brewery products on the Spontoon Islands around the Main Atoll's Lagoon. This is a timed event between check-points on Main Island roads, with weight-and-capacity handicap loads, and points for fuel economy. There are different racing classes for the delivery trucks.

Some of the seaplane racing entries that come in on seaplane-tender boats from other nations have actually carried a delivery truck in their ships, to enter in these races. This event on an exotic North Pacific island, is good publicity for the foreign truck companies, and a entertainment for some of the aircraft mechanics and sailors who sometimes are the drivers.

Mars Needs Coleslaw!
From the coleslaw-culture of the Minnesota Cartoonists' League. (Small meet-up the last Tuesday evening of the month at O'Gara's Bar & Grill, in Saint Paul Minnesota. More information at the Facebook Group)

During the 2019 Expedition to Mars, Coleslawthulu shares coleslaw with the funny-animal inhabitants.

Interests
The Spontoon Island website posts "Speed Week" stories and art on a 30s racing theme each year at the end of August, and continues racing uploads through the first week of September: Here's a contents page for the previous contributions:
spontoon.rootoon.com/SPwRacCn.…

We'd be happy to add more art and stories to this air-racing section of the website!

"Spontoon Island" is a co-op art & story archive set in the 1930s on an alternate version of our world. The population is anthropomorphic-animal toons to funny-animal furry, depending on the contributor's style. The location is a small independent nation of Pacific Ocean islands. Think of "Miyazaki anime" meets "TaleSpin" meets "Blacksad"... but this is not a fan-art web-site. Characters should be original to the contributor.

The Spontoon Island website will celebrate "Speed Week" starting 24 August. The site would be happy to repost images of 1930s racing vehicles on a tropical island, including racing seaplanes, 1930s motorcycle races, and similar racing contests. Also welcome would be images of visitors watching the racing, locals managing the races, mechanics at work, & pilots. Original aircraft designs are welcome, and designs based on historical aircraft.

Text stories set during the air races or the racing festival in this 1930s Pacific island setting are also welcome.

Rating is PG to (mild) Mature.

Your own original characters are welcome to visit the Speedweek festival. (We wish to avoid publishing  corporate-owned characters.)  Reposts of your previously-published art and your own characters are okay (if they fit the theme). You keep your copyrights, and we will give credit to you as a contributing creator and offer text links to your own archive.

There's background information on this webpage:

Questions can be sent through Deviant Art messages.
Thank you.
