Cartoonists are donating original art made especially for a book about Parkinson’s awareness in Richard Thompson’s honor. Part of the profits from the sale of the book would benefit the Michael J Fox Foundation (MJFF), and the original art will be auctioned as part of the fundraiser with all of auction money going to MJFF. Additionally, there will be a limited number of deluxe edition books signed and numbered by Richard Thompson.
The theme is going to be fun. It is other artist’s take on the Cul de Sac characters. Please run with them; deconstruct them, parody them, confuse them, cubisize them, psychoanalyze them, draw them in your own strip, whatever tickles your fancy. Enjoy. Open up your heart and just create something out of the ordinary, maybe not with your own characters, but this is an opportunity for you to let your talent to shine in a wide range of ways.
In addition to cartoonists, we’ve had writers who didn’t want to be left out contribute to an old-fashioned fanzine, Favorites, consisting of essays written by comics critics, artists and bloggers about their most cherished comic strips, comic books and graphic novels. Mike Rhode of ComicsDC
Was back at Bayou Bakery pronto, for breakfast! The biscuit is bumpy like a cloud, crumbles righteously and is surprisingly-satisfyingly salty. It did not look a bit angry or disgruntled on its blank canvas plate. Sanguine and self-assured, like a big cheese sandwich.
Have I mentioned how happy I am to have a destination breakfast encounter here in Arlington? So very happy! Outta the clear blue (unless you’ve been following the blog crumbs, in which case you would have known in 1993) we’ve got a few. Bayou Bakery is the tops.
