I’m Emerging From My Hermit Lair to Give a Lecture!

It is rare that I come out of hiding to give a talk, but I will do that on Monday September 23rd at Art Center College in Pasadena. I’ll be speaking at Michael Dooley’s comics history class; I’ll show lots of my work and explain how everything I do works. Here’s the announcement – it is open to the public and free.

I met Michael at our local National Cartoonists Society Los Angeles Chapter where I heard about his impressive class at Art Center; the class is titled, “Design History of Comics and Animation”. Michael brings in lots in interesting guest speakers, who he announces on his Facebook page. I’m going to start going to these, they look great.

I’ll talk about my varied career, as an illustrator in New York, as a toy inventor, as a political cartoonist, and now running a little syndicate. I’ll cover the world scene for editorial cartoons (internationally our art form is much more highly regarded than it is here). And we’ll have lots of time for questions – Michael wants to talk about the future of editorial cartooning and how the business works. OK.

I guessing the crowd will be small, so if you can make it to Pasadena, don’t hesitate to come and ask lots of questions! Its FREE and open to the public!

I have mentally been crafting a letter to the democratic candidates in my state about how they are too wishy-washy and segmented to be cohesive and strong enough to reach their goal of unseating our current president unless they get their chit together. I was wondering if I could add the cartoon of the two party mascots screaming out of their rear ends to my letter? I am just an ordinary citizen with limited formal education so those folk might not hear me but I can’t wait any longer to give them this person’s opinion of their weak and selfish attitude toward the coming election. I am struggling to stay in the middle-class and if we don’t find a way around our current predicament, I will have worked more than 50 years full-time for what? To keep struggling to survive while our ‘representatives’ continue to succeed? To quote the movie Network: “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore.” The letter may fall on deaf ears but their request for donations will be affected and I will supply a reason with my rejection of their please for $$. I wish I could travel to hear your talk in Pasadena. Haven’t been west of the Mississippi. I hear their is a lot of country on the other side 🙂

Yeah, all that talk about universal background checks (which over 90% of gunowners support) and banning assault weapons from Democrats is bullshit! Dems voted 60% against war on Iraq, REpubs voted 97% for: What’s the fucking difference?

Repubs oppose addressing global arming; Democrats present Green New Deal: What’s the fucking difference.

Despite total disagreement on war and peace, protecting the environment and destroying it, both parties are exactly the same so don’t vote so Trump can can re-elected and wreak revenge on all his critics.
