Help Give me a Quick Kick(starter)
by joe5art

My Kickstarter starts in just over a week. Nobody knows exactly what going at the moment. Much less what response to a Kickstarter is. I figure there are some people who are tight on money and can't contribute but there are other people with extra free time to read and enjoy this also.

I took the Kickstarter I was planning and split it into two Kickstarters. One now and one when things get more normal.

Going for a "Quick Kick"(TM) Kickstarter. It's going to run March 31 to April 15 and try to get stuff to people in May!

Other Kickstarter(s) will happen later.

I am set up to full fill really fast. The printer is in the U.S. and has already run these items in small amounts. I hope to have stuff for you THIS MAY! unless something major changes.

A Big Year For Barrel Of Monkeys!
by joe5art
I know when I'm not posting you are actively thinking I'm laying about doing nothing. Well, that's not totally true. 

We did make the Best Of CARtoons Magazine issue! Thank you so much if you voted. The Hot Wheels story was the one one that ran.

March 6-8, 202 I will be at San Diego Comic Fest. I will have prints and preview copies of my 1st reprint book. I hope this print will be done for it also.

That's right I put together a 60-page book of all the Barrel of Monkey stories through 2019.

By the end of March, I'll be starting a Kickstarter. (To pay for said book.) Please follow to keep notified and help us get more views. Share our upcoming Project, that's the best advertising!!! http://kck.st/2vSsJR8

Welcome

Welcome to Barrel of Grease Monkeys

it is my cartoon that began running in CARtoons Magazine in 2017. Because it is a new comic in development, a paying project and the magazine has a lot of name recognition with automotive enthusiasts worldwide it has been getting most all my attention. Barrel of Grease Monkeys is my series and my first real series, AKA, Not self Published. The monkeys act crazy & looney. Maybe they've spent too much time in a barrel. But they are there to 'help' with car related issues, often with famous people and important events. They are often a force of Karma in the sense that people who deal with them usually get what they deserve.

What is CARtoons Magazine?

CARtoons Magazine came out in the late 50’s and was published/distributed bi-monthly up until the early 90’s. Think of it as Mad Magazine for car nuts. It contains comic strip stories, how to draw, and illustrations from various top name artists reflecting humor within the automotive industry.  Marc Methot, a reader and fan was successful on filing for the CARtoons Magazine trademark and bring the magazine back to life. www.cartoonsmag.com
 

Why do I care and why isn't their More stuff?

Here is the deal, If it were up to me. If making money and keeping the magazine going were not issues. I'd share most everything right away with all of you. obviously, this isn't the case. but, I need to have a place to keep in touch with you. So I will post sketches, promo art, other goodies and sometimes a page for you to enjoy. I'll also keep you up to date on show dates. When new issues come out . Also when I put new products out; mostly via Red Bubble. www.redbubble.com/people
 
The magazine and I are also both active on Facebook.  www.facebook.com/cartoonsmag/  &  www.facebook.com/barrel.of.grease.monkeys/
