order yours today!
The fruits of Seasonal Affective Drawing from Alaska's longest-running cartoon, freeze-frame and nuggets are homegrown humor from the heartland of the north. Smith's zany look at life in the Frozen North is appreciated by both visitors encountering our mosquitoes for the first time and sourdoughs with a profound understanding of that winter run to the outhouse...
What discerning readers say about these books:
"This happy little book, very funny and purely Alaskan, got four thumbs up at our house. A pithy playing with puns has promoted Jamie to the front ranks of Alaska humorists." —Byron Birdsall
"...a cerebral celebration... Jamie beats a comic rhythm on my funny drum...this is damn funny stuff." —Gangly Moose
"Beaver Fever will have a gnawing effect on you." —Johnny Hart
"Very refreshing stuff. Like a Great Northern Goose to the spirit!" —Don Martin
"...catches the Spirit of the Wild's #1 sense; the sense of humor! I felt right at home at his campfire, laughing and feeling good." —Ted Nugent
"...I like the collection...It's quite different from most of the stuff I have seen. Like any hot stuff, it should be an easy ice breaker." —Joe Szabo, Witty World Intl. Cartoon Magazine
"Witty, funky, and a trifle demented. Cool stuff!" —Ray Troll
About the author:
Jamie Smith teaches drawing and cartooning at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and is afflicted with an unremitting sense of absurdity. His cartoon strips appear in papers around Alaska, and he regularly publishes editorial cartoons in The Ester Republic. When not on another extended solo backcountry trek into the wilderness, he lives and works in a one-room cabin in Ester with his two cats.
