Q. Despite the many committments and responsibilities, how often do you stand in the shower in the morning and think, "Wow, I've made it! I'm not working for someone else, doing the 9 to 5 grind anymore. I've got this great family. Life is really cool!"

Smartest Kid on Earth

Chris_ware I drove today to Los Angeles to see the Ecstasy show at the MOCA, before it ends next week. It was rather disappointing, so I continued to visit the other exhibitions. ‘Masters of American Comics’ had many original drawings & proofs by Chris Ware, author of Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth, as well as many of his ACME Novelty Toys. Also, art by Gary Panter

Stop Elmer Fudd

Freudian interpretation of Marmaduke, the Great Dane; In my local newspaper, the crappy square strips -- Marmaduke, Heathcliff, Dennis the Menace, and Family Circus -- all appear together, in a sort of matrix of suckitude. Occasionally they synergize.. Each of the four consistently deals subtextually with deep-seated social neuroses…

How to win the New Yorker caption contest every time. (Again, from a Metafilter thread)

The Other Family has nothing to do with Family Circus and should not be allowed around children

Super Heroes

Albuquerque Cambodian Comics. Cambodia's arts scene includes a small but diverse comics industry. Tales range from historical drama to slapstick comedy

This animated music film is based on the song Brazil (Baros and Russel) performed by The Real Tuesday Weld with Nick Phelps and Geert Chatrou. It is a story of a Brazilian monkey, who left his motherland and wants to come back

In a media conference today, noted outdoorsman Elmer Fudd called for the assassination of noted trickster icon and longtime rival Bugs Bunny. "We've got the wesouwces," explained Mr. Fudd. "I think we should do it. Mr. Bunny has been a continual thweat to many of the things we hold deaw. He is a weading cause of decawwotization. He is a poisonous pwesence in the opera world. And his twack record with the env--env--env--enviwo-env--it's terrible. He has wuniously distuwbed gopher habitats between here and Albuquerque."

Cartoon tattoos. Early in June, a firefighter from New Jersey contacted me to ask permission to tattoo my cartoon from 9/11. He mentioned that many of his fire fighting buddies had "inked" themselves in memory of the tragic day. I felt honored that he felt that way about my work and gave permission. A month later, he sent me a photo of his arm with the black outlines of the tattoo completed. His plans were to have it colorized on Sept 12. As many editorial cartoonists know, most of our work is fleeting in its message and context. But to have my work permanently etched on another human... think about it. (Scroll down to September 23rd post)
