Sketchbook Dump - Sunday Comics with Taj Mihelich

Feb 16, 2020
by Taj Mihelich  
My tenure as PinkBike's cartoonist is almost up. The end of February will be a year of my weekly comics. I have enjoyed it immensely, but I think I have probably caused you dear people enough pain.

Today's comic is a mish-mash of half-baked, somewhat desperate ideas from my sketchbook. For your entertainment I present...
I spent a sad amount of time trying to force this one. "Flat! You Lance?" = Flatulence.... get it? I just really wanted a fart joke.

Dad joke groans.



Your $9 Pivotal® post won't cut it here.



I don't understand what any of the knobs do anyways. I just fiddle with them when I see my friends do it to fit in.



Oh, and they are really powerful too.

Because it will come out crappy!????

 Taj, I have loved the Sunday comics. I was excited to see them this week. Shit to be honest I've really loved seeing you on PB, they should give you more content. I have been thrilled lately to see some of my childhood heros out in the other aspects of cycling. I'm going to be doing a gravel ride with Jamie Bestwick in the fall. I met Rick Thorne and DMC at Warped Tour doing demos last summer. Mirra(RIP) and his Triathlons. It's rad to see people still living life full throttle the whole way through. I fell out of the BMX scene, I always get hurt when I bust it out.... But I do enough dumb shit on my big bikes. So I kinda wondered what happened to alot of those roadfools and degenerates I used to watch in videos. Because YouTube wasn't a thing and we bought the newest damn BMX movies. Keep trucking amigo.


Are we gonna see a terrible one big bike? Please?

 RIGHT! Love love love the Sunday funnies, they are Taj-tastic! Without this kind of humor we are just a bunch of dudes riding bikes with $200 seatposts...which is kind of funny/not funny in its own way.

If nothing else, Pinkbike needs to sell some limited edition t-shirts with Taj comics on them, or a Taj calendar, or whatever schwag we can get our hands on. #TajSchwag

 @tajmihelich do you sell original art work, or is that part of your site under special request? And as long as you want to pinkbike should have a single Sunday funny, corny, poignant, what ever you want to draw for us, I love it even when I don’t, the collection is brilliant and I look forward to every one!!!

 Don’t leave us Taj, it gets way too serious around here!

 Taj, your style is kinda like The Far Side meets bikes... Been a lot of fun... Corny? Sometimes.. But why not? I know projects like Fairdale came about as you started trying different things on bikes... Hopefully this time with Pink Bike has been a good intro to the MTB fun...

 I’ve enjoyed cartoons too. Make sure Pinkbike pays you well for year 2, don’t let them be cheap skates or low ballers.

 Mountain biking gets you back to the simplicity of nature in a dangerous, highly complicated, and expensive way.

 I've appreciated the creativity in your comics, Taj. I've also appreciated something different on Pinkbike. I hope you'll at least continue to post them on your 'Gram so we can still enjoy them.

 Nooooo don't leave! If you are occasionally short on ideas, ask the community for input. Please stay!!

 I've loved getting to see these, though admittedly I've probably read more of them on IG. In any case, I hope you'll find a way to keep doing them because they're hilarious and offer some much-needed levity to help us all take things just a little bit more lightly. Anyway, what I mean to say is that they're great!

 Laughed pretty hard at the BMX one. My neighbor, "oh so it's like a BMX"; "yeah if you were to sell your family, and your car for a BMX". "It's not retarded I swear!" "It's uhhhhhh, IDK what to call it"..........."OK, but I'm only lowering the bar to, "special needs""

 Not sure why my rear brake in the right, but back when brakes did not work too well has something to do with it?
