Civilization Calls: REAL Testimonials

I am not gay, nor am I bisexual, but when I went to holistic forge works .com I felt a little queer.

~ Daniel Blue, Urban Poet/Fashion Designer

Your work has certainly stirred emotion and cannot be considered boring. Few art reviews have enough passion for the reviewer to use the all caps key throughout the entire review. Yet, yours apparently did.

~ Erik Bjornson, The Tacoma Urbanist™

Your show was great and the turnout was great and I'm so glad lots and lots of people could see your work! Also, very nice family you have; I hope they enjoyed themselves tonight. Thanks for all the effort, Ryan... I have never been at a gathering where the term 'steam donkey' came up so often in conversation.

~ Anonymous, Art show Proprietor

Mr. Anderson is a designer, illustrator, and cartoonist by profession. His comments tend to be out in left field, but it makes this place interesting. Generally speaking, however, these comments are ignored by many of us (sorry Mr. Anderson). Note to self: Don't piss off a cartoonist. The results can be unpredictable.

~ Derek, Exit133

Bravo for the nice work Mr. Anderson as I think you've successfully made a powerful point without any name-calling or slander. P.S. - For June (and as has been the trend) the Tacomic is the 4th most popular single stop over at FeedTacoma. Well done, my friend.

~ Kevin Freitas, FeedTacoma.com

Congratulations [whatever] your own personal bathroom joke. You have not demonstrated any kind of civic responsibility or maturity, and both the History Museum and the City of Tacoma should ignore your screeching.

Seems your career objectives don't carry over into your personal life. You say you respect, challenge and inspire individuals? [blah blah blah] Narrow-mindedness and exclusivity will not help Tacoma reach its full potential. It's sad to see such a talented guy take such cheap shots. Who else do you alienate by disagreeing with your perceptions of their live-styles?

~ Condominium Owner, Tacoma WA

I, for one, am publicly banning anything and everything by Mr. Richard Anderson and his company. I sincerely hope you do the same.

~ Another Idiot

You truly are devoid of comedy and talent. In the illustration department you are far from even reaching mediocrity. I will admit that you are okay in the iron works field. Foremost, get over yourself, for you will never reach any heights in the fields of painting, illustration or truly, even 3-D animation/modeling. I feel sorry to have to tell you this, but I stumbled upon your site to find nothing even close to meriting it's use of valuable web space. So please just shoot yourself now. For the r [sic]
