April 2022 ** UPDATE**
Ever sit around and the thought of an old friend crosses your mind? It happened to me today after thinking about the Easter weekend racing at Bristol. You know, the track that they filled to the brim with dirt? Yeah, that place. Anyway, during a rain delay (mud delay?), good ole Darrell Waltrip was reminiscing with Mike Joy about past races at Bristol and of course elsewhere, then my mind went back to that time and the cartoons I did during that era as well. Then it hit me; War Wagon HAS to be coming up on 20 years old…and sure enough, here we are. I never kept my promise of making new cartoons since the last update 4 years ago LOL! What I do find interesting though is how this site is now like a time capsule. It may only feel that way to me but I do hope there’s one or two of you out there who might feel the same way. A lot sure has changed, from technology to politics to drivers…. You can’t live in the past and sometimes you can barely live in the present, but here we are!
December 2018 ** UPDATE**
Well, as I wrote below, the new format has been a work in progress. Mostly because I’ve been busy with other projects. I am happy to say that I’m a couple of steps closer to finishing off the make-over but you know web-tweakers… it’s only finished until the next big thing comes along.
War-Wagon.com has been an ever evolving process that went from the most basic content, to 3 and sometimes 4 hand-drawn and unique, never-before-seen stock car racing themed cartoons a week!
Maybe there just won’t be as many creations as there have been in the past years but there’ll still be some trickling through.
A new feature that I’ve added in the Summer of 2016 is “Weekend Winner”. What I am doing is portraying my own hand-picked “win” from the weekend. It could be the winner of the Cup race, the owner of the Xfinity winning car who won on the weekend or just someone or something that had a great weekend. Could be anything. I just draw whatever comes into my head and strikes my fancy.
Anyhow, back to the site revamp: The good news is, this brand new “blog” format allows me to better categorize past works to make it even easier for everyone (myself included) to find things. There are pieces buried so deep after more than a dozen + years I may never find them!
Hence, the new format will be a work in progress… perhaps always “under construction”… but at the very least, it kind of refreshes itself with just a couple of nose twitches. Kind of like Bewitched… or Gunsmoke… or one of those old tv shows. Maybe it was Bonanza, or Mr. Ed…. yeah thats what it was, Mr Ed.
