B.K.'s artwork and storyline in this May 1980 National Lampoon are the stuff of legends. Mr. Taylor's fine attention to night shading is as perfect as I've ever seen in this classic of

Mr. Taylor tells us he is in the process of designing some merchandise, which is more great news :)
After seeing this B.K. Taylor cover for Sick magazine, Dad said, "Incredible! I call it 'Them Crazy Kids on Their Murder-Psychos'. This guy's brilliant!!!"
Dad was rarely wrong, and several copies of this particular issue of Sick were purchased. (No, you can't have mine, I'm keeping it forever, lol.)
Look at the bold colors, the confident direction, the full character development and the entire 'Devil May Care' attitude of this piece and tell me that it's not hilarious. (I'll check for a pulse if you think otherwise.)
I was pleasantly surprised and pleased to have received a telephone call from Mr. Taylor this fine June day after a nice long hike in Edmonton's Rundle Park and it sure was an experience talking with him! He is a vibrant and energetic man, much like his inspiring artwork, which we will be seeing even more of in the future with the new book coming out sooner than expected.
I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a telephone conversation as much, and it was a pleasure and an honor to talk with him.

As every boy should have a dog, B.K. gave Maurice a skinny, long earred canine, aptly named, Foamy.
Foamy got his name because it was more than apparent he had rabies. In our opinion, Foamy's addition to Timberland Tales is akin to the Fonz taking over Happy Days. Only Foamy never jumped the shark, and we never got tired of his appearances in Timberland tales.
Mr. Taylor sent us an email yesterday and shared with us that a brand new National Lampoon Book of Artwork is being compiled as you read this wonderful news. He also plans to share his artwork and stories with us, when time permits.
So let all of your B.K. Taylor & National Lampoon aficionados know that an incredible book of featuring fantastic artwork will soon be available!
Anyone can write something that can move someone to cry; it is infinitely easier to move a soul to tears than to laughter.
However, moving a person to tears because of their laughter is a more powerful form of that very same B.K. Taylor Magic I've previously mentioned..
All right to the artwork are owned solely by the artist and human being, B.K. Taylor.
(So don't try anything funny...)
