Mellow Cat VS. H.O.M.O.S.

Mellow Cat

“Mellow Cat?” you ask? In the late 70’s it ran in Skateboarder Magazine, making it older than most people with a skateboard these days. I’m not sure if it ever really fit in with the times. Maybe it was a California thing. From what I remember there were always a lot of weird looking guys flying out of skateparks Mad Magazine style. We co-publish the Hopeless Old Men on Skateboards comics that are kind of the antithesis of Mellow Cat, except when he’s not pissed off there are sometimes similarities. Man, MC is going to be pissed when he reads this. In any case. Author Ted Richards might be getting a Mellow Cat book together. Sounds like a project for Concrete Wave Editions, but as an old hippie, maybe Richards doesn’t trust the Man anymore. What else is he doing? Richards appears to be a thriving Illustrator/Multimedia/Web Site artist. His site has an example of a Mellow Cat and some interesting production notes in case you don’t have any 25 year old copies of Skateboarder laying around.

  1. Just for that I’m adding Z-Quirp to the strip.

    Mellow-Cat and I have the same initials and I am also occasionally a dirty hippie – like this weekend when I skated two skateparks and attended the aftermath an art-fag soap-box racing event and then went skateboarding at another skatepark the next day without shaving or showering between. Grover is ready to roll at 8 am on Sunday morning.

    I used to wear the red Mellow Cat mesh-back hat.
