22 full color illustrations (one of which contains 18 caricatures) for a large national client. â€˜Nuff said.
Anyway, Iâ€™m gonna keep this short so I can keep working, but hereâ€™s some stuff that I wanna yap about…
- Iâ€™m in the August Good Housekeeping with one of my kid/lawyer cartoons.
- Iâ€™m also in the new Laughter is the Best Medicine book from Readerâ€™s Digest.
- Recently a few radio stations in the Chicago area have changed their formats from â€œwhat we think will get the most listeners in our target groupâ€ to â€œwhatever we wantâ€ (the second one is actually a stationâ€™s tag line) and Iâ€™m tuning in for an eclectic selection of just plain good music. Note to syndicates/newspapers: Donâ€™t worry about demographics. Give â€˜em funnier comics and they will come back.
- My new Free Daily Comic feature is a wild success. Tons of bloggers and sites are using the cartoon. A few recent faves:
OK, thatâ€™s it. Iâ€™ll try to get more in next week.
