Team Cul De Sac

One of my very favorite cartoonists ever is Richard Thompson who draws the brilliant "Cul De Sac".  I was very sad to hear that Richard was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease a while ago.
His friend, Chris Sparks, came up with the idea to have cartoonists donate original takes on the "Cul De Sac" strip and to put together a book as a fundraiser for Parkinson's research. They have had some amazing contributions including, recently, an original painting by the mysterious and reclusive Bill Watterson of "Calvin and Hobbes".
My donation to the project appeared on the blog not long ago, and here's a link. Hope you enjoy it and check out the rest of the art, too!

Happy Mother's Day and Capt. Jack Sparrow

Today is Mother's Day, so hope you all have or had a happy one. Nico and I had a great phone chat. Now, I am spending the day in the garden killing wasps and digging up old strawberries with my lethal new garden implement:
And on this special day,here is one of my favorite Chix Mother's Day cartoons:
Yesterday was Free Comic Book Day in Rochester and all over. I spent the day at artstream Gallery (small "a", remember?) and meeting people coming in including a very famous and cool pirate:

That's artstream co-owner Mary-Jo Monusky on the left, me, Capt. Jack, and Amber Lavalley.
And here's a display of some of my books, jewelry and t-shirts.

 My artwork and cartoons will be on display for the next few weeks if you are in the area, stop by! Here are some kids reading some of my cartoons, followed by some of my framed cartoons and some of my prints on display:
