Back in the 70s and 80s, I used to read the Village Voice each week. I thoroughly enjoyed all the features, especially the work of Stan Mack and “Real Life Funnies”. Here’s the scoop on Mack from our friends at Wikipedia:
“Stan Mack is a reporter/cartoonist who pioneered a documentary style of cartooning with his notorious New York comic strip Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies, which ran in The Village Voice for 20 years.”
The subheading for the strip was “All Dialogue Guaranteed Overheard”.
Inspired by his work, I offer, “Flemingtoon™”, with all dialogue overheard on the streets of Flemington. I, however, do not hear as well as Stan Mack, and cannot make the same guarantee. However, I will assure you that I will make every effort possible to be as accurate as I can be.
This was over heard at the Salsa festival in Flemington. [Sorry for how blurry this is; I am still working on the process of creating the strip, and uploading it on to the blog].
