what is your fav JoBurt cartoon
That was a good un rude boy!
Was a bit narked when WMB stopped the monthly full page cartoon each month.
Did something happen between em – though he still does Mint. Jo also used to right a small panel each month and I got the impression that he got upset when they mis quoted him about his thoughts on 29ers. Shame as I always like to read Jo’s thoughts even if I don’t always agree with em. Up there with Ferrentino and Maynard Hershon IMHO.Posted 9 years agopantsonfireMember

I’ve got a “Just one more hill” poster in my garage, think it was the 20th anniversary of MBUK. Quite like it. Reminds me of my last few months on the Quantocks: knew I would probably never ride there again 🙁 so my last few rides were very long as I tried to do “just one more hill”.Posted 9 years agobassspineMember
This one always brings a tear to the eye..
retro: I’ve got the fridge strip poster framed on my kitchen wall.
(Minty drops a pingf*ckkit which bounces off over a hill, through a wood, down a bit of ‘shore etc and under said fridge.)

jj55, that’s close….
I adore this one..
But, oddly enough, my favourite piece of Jo’s work was a very small sticker, part of one of the MBUK sticker sets. It sat on the back of my helmet, with no other stickers or adornments anywhere.
It simply said;
THIS IS WHY
Just summed it up for me.Posted 9 years agoCountZeroMember
Too many to pick one really, although the four that Jo drew for me at various bike shows are especially treasured. The ‘fridge magnet’ poster is on my wall at work and never fails to bring a smile. Wish MBUK would do more poster versions of Mint, perhaps four a year…Posted 9 years ago
Oh, and Jo, if you read this, I love this months strip. Pure genius, and the totoro’s on the fence are a lovely touch. Well done, sir, I salute you!finbarMember
I can’t remember it well enough to find, but there’s one incredibly sad one about Summer where she doesn’t make a single appearance, not even in the final frame.
I also really like the Edward Hopper Nighthawks and the “There’s an art… to mountain biking” Damien Hurst pastiches.Posted 9 years agogonetothehillsSubscriber
I recall one from yonks ago – where I think Mint’s mending a flat, and hears a “click / clack / click / clack” sound from behind him. He daydreams that it’s some hot chick in heels, but it’s actually one of his bovine / ovine mates in roadie cleats walking towards him – saying something about “fancy a roadie bash”, IIRC.
I’d love to see it again if it’s kicking around on t’internet – I did laugh a lot at the time, and still chuckle to myself whenever I’m wandering around in my roadie disco pumps.
More recent (and juvenile) ones, include “I’ve never seen a gash foam that much” which is enough to put me off going tubeless for good! 🙂Posted 9 years agoJonEdwardsMember
Well I’ve got an A1 “this is why” poster hanging in the bathroom (was in an old MBUK). just the gang thrashing singletrack in the trees.
There’s 2 prints hanging in the hall – a summery chilling out on the ‘Downs one and a seasons one.
There’s one of the 10th Mountain Mayhem prints hanging the other side of the hall.
And then there’s this…Posted 9 years ago
My 30th birthday pressie from my missus. I can still stand there gazing at it for ages 5 years on. Very, very, special to me.MicArmsMember
My god, does no one remember ‘the stench of damp wool’ one? Loved that.
Also as a side note, i have a tenuous claim to fame of inspiring a Mint Sauce cartoon. (in WMB) where the woman has a ‘deore’gasm. Thanks to a thread on here about my missus old mate’s spunky teddy.Posted 9 years ago
