Random Acts of Funny is the quirky collaboration of James and Meredith Blinkhorn. Meredith is the artist behind 'Random' and James is the web-master.

Since the age of being able to hold a crayon, Meredith has delighted in the activity of drawing. Inspired by a childhood obsession with her idol Jim Davis of GARFIELD notoriety and later Gary Larson of FAR SIDE fame, Meredith spent much of her younger years with pencil and paper in reach. 'Random' was in its nameless infancy about a decade ago. Unfortunately, the series was shelved, sidelined by 'life' and other reasons.

In March of 2009, an unexpected absence from her job spawned the resurgence of the idea for this web-site. This time, the series emerged with a name: Random Acts of Funny. The following two quotes aptly summarize how 'Random' was resurrected:


You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you. ~Walt Disney

Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents which, in prosperous circumstances, would have lain dormant. ~Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), Satires


Taking the meaning of these two quotes to heart, and with help of her web-savvy and loving partner James, 'Random Acts of Funny' made its web debut on July 15th, 2009. The sole mandate of Random Acts is to elicit a smile from you, the viewer. A groan or even a chuckle means that 'Random' is fulfilling its raison d'être. On behalf of the webmaster and the artist, thank you for visiting our site. We hope you like what you see and that you will return to view future postings of our Random Acts of Funny.
