The Cartoonists' Olympics


Bored with the Beijing Olympics already? Don’t worry, there’s always the Cartoonists’ Olympics.

At least there is in the mind of the New Yorker cartoonist Mick Stevens. He imagines what the 2008 Magazine Cartoonists’ Olympic Games would be like on his aptly named blog I really should be drawing.

Events include: The Reject-Toss (see above) in which contestants toss crumpled-up balls of paper containing unsuccessful ideas across a large room, attempting to hit a small wastebasket on the other side; and Drawing-Table Tennis, which involves two cartoonists batting ideas back and forth across a drawing table until the ideas become completely unrecognizable and devoid of humour.

Any cartoonists wishing to take part in these Olympics, please note: caffeine is a banned substance.
