Very entertaining. Makes the stories that much more enjoyable, although, I'd like to see more graphic cartoons. More blood.
Mary - Monday, October 07 at 12:11:59 PDT
Good work. Very funny. I like the way you drew the feet in the story about the man who jumped into the shallow water. Feet are insanly hard to draw (for me anyhow) you are good. ^_^

Hi Malcolm Your art is terrific, getting more homour to the story but also capturing the essence in a comical fashion. A truly excellent addition to darwinawards.

Love the Jet Ski Jock illustration! It's pretty hilarious, once you know the story behind it.

Malcolm, now can you write a story line? I think your drawnings would make a great comic book with the right words!! Try it for us!!
Steve - Wednesday, November 27 at 20:43:26 PST
I agree with Mary. They are very entertaining, but we want to see blood!

Hello, I just picked up some of the comments, and I'll come by occasionally I'm sure. Thanks for writing sensible comments (most of you) and I hope people will keep it that way. I've seen too many sites where the cyber zombies just take over and trash whatever's on show, whether it's good, bad or indifferent. I'm happy to say I've escaped a great deal of the negative comment, but no-one's immune. The Internet's available to the just and the unjust, unfortunately. My own site will shortly be up and running, you can access it on www.malcolmmcgookin.com when it's ready. At the moment it's simply a holding page. Once again, thanks for the kind thoughts and words, just remember that if you're surfing cartoonists sites, even when you don't like someone's work, that person still has feelings, so if you can't be constructive, why be destructive? Best wishes to you all.

thanks for the work on the site. Very Mad-esque, and I know less is more, but I think for most of these you need more than one frame.
terencio - Thursday, January 09 at 15:00:49 PST
You bring the award nominees to life!
Gerhard - Tuesday, February 04 at 23:00:38 PST

Chad - Wednesday, April 09 at 00:04:23 PDT
Your cartoons breathe life into the various stories. Keep up the good work.
Jack - Thursday, June 19 at 17:12:39 PDT
Hello, thrill seekers. This is my first return visit since January, and thanks for all the compliments. I'd just like to explain to "Walt" that there aren't any punchlines as such, you have to read the Darwin Awards stories to "get" the toons. Best wishes to you all, and if I don't speak to you before next January, Merry Christmas and a happy Hogmanay.
Malc - Saturday, June 28 at 05:58:18 PDT
I think your art is awsome. your pictures help bring the stoies some life.
Barb - Saturday, July 12 at 16:32:35 PDT
