Who Is Island Guy?

July 24th, 2012 by Magdalena Tabor
By now you have (hopefully) enjoyed several of the Island Guy cartoons on this site and may be wondering….Who is this Island Guy? Where does he come from and how did he end up in this predicament? What’s his story?
He’s just an ordinary guy who decided to take a cruise one day, get away from the daily grind of his hum drum life and away from the world. At the already discounted deal of his getaway destination, he got more than he bargained for. Aside from having lost his luggage (which wouldn’t much matter in the end) and breaking up with his girlfriend at the last minute, he was having the time of his life; until a strange turn of events dramatically affected how Island Guy would come to perceive the world.
He was the last guy on the conga line. holding onto the waist of a pretty girl when a tropical storm blew up out of nowhere. Just as he was about to ask her name, Island Guy was thrust by a sudden gust of wind into the murky depths of the sea and by the time he arose gulping for air, the ship had journeyed on its way to Bora Bora. No one seemed to notice Island Guy was missing. Except for maybe that pretty girl who turned around and thought to herself, “Hmmm. What happened to that cute guy that was there a minute ago?”
Island Guy was just a speck in the vast deep ocean. He didn’t know how long he could go on treading water before he became just another notch in the food chain.  By the time daylight cast its golden glow on his drooping eyelids, Island Guy was nearly done for. Just then,  something bumped his elbow. He shrieked at the thought of being eaten alive but it was no use. No one could hear him. He turned to see it was only a piece of driftwood. He clamped onto it and began floating slowly, ever so slowly, to what appeared to be a shoreline. He was in luck! That’s probably where the ship was anchored waiting for him! But by the time he got there, his hopes were dashed. It was just a tiny island, another miniscule speck in the ocean’s enormity. He slipped ashore and slept, clad only in his jockey shorts. Island Guy couldn’t remember what happened to his clothes. The last thing he recalled was the fun he was having on that conga line before disaster struck. How he managed to hold onto his cell phone, his only remaining possession remains a mystery. And even more baffling is how it continues to operate with no cell tower in the vicinity and without ever having to charge it. He was certainly taking advantage of his Unlimited Minutes.
Island Guy has lost all sense of time living on an uncharted chip of land the size of a pin head. His hair has grown from a slick city cut to a long silky mane that does not detract from his overall good looks. His physique has improved on his diet of coconuts, his only food source aside from the occasional fish or crab when he’s lucky enough to get one. But Isand Guy is one cool character. He’s just biding his time and taking it in stride, with only a slight edginess in his mood every now and again when things sometimes go a bit awry. But then, who can blame him?
So……whadawethink? Any suggestions on making Island Guy’s life a little easier? Please write to Island Guy. Just slip a note into a bottle and toss it into the sea. No postage required.

    My wife and i have been now thrilled that Emmanuel managed to do his inquiry while using the precious recommendations he discovered when using the web pages. It’s not at all simplistic to simply find yourself giving for free tips and tricks which men and women might have been selling. And we take into account we have got the blog owner to thank for that. All the illustrations you have made, the easy website menu, the friendships your site help engender – it is many excellent, and it is helping our son and us imagine that that subject matter is entertaining, and that’s tremendously indispensable. Many thanks for the whole thing!
