Cubans come to Snoopy's house

Several years ago Jeannie Schulz took five American cartoonists to Cuba (including me) where we met all the cartoonists in Havana. Now she brought three of them (wearing caps) here. What a treat to see them again!

In the shadow of Sparky

If you had told me years ago that some day I would sit in the Grand Hall of the Charles M. Schulz Museum drawing Snoopy for kids under the watchful gaze of Sparky himself I would have thought you were nuts. But you weren't nuts. (I got writer's cramp from scribbling "apologies to Schulz" on the bottom of each one)

Daddy Duct Tape #3

This year's addition to the Daddy Duct Tape series of books involved several dinosaurs, a flooded street in Chicago and the ingenuity of a bunch of little kids with a lot of duct tape (to build a suspension bridge in a hurry). Now if only they were in LA the other day when that water main broke....

Along with my Swami From New Jersey character, canine poet Warren Peace hit the stage yesterday in Bolinas.  He was also the opening act recently at a performance of Karma Talk, wherein my Swami joined up for the first time with Swami Beyondananda to go turban to turban in dispensing wisdom to the assemble hordes. It was a great success. Karma Talk will raise its turbaned head again in Mountain View on November 29th. Warren will be there too. Whether he will "sit" or "stay" remains to be seen. He tends to have a mind of his own.

Karma Talk Debut

Last night's Karma Talk concert in Marin brought Swami Beyondananda and the Swami From New Jersey together for the first time, turban to turban. It was a packed house and a rousing success. Renowned canine poet Warren Peace (think Rumi with fleas) opened the evening. Warren had the crowd howling. Literally!

Snoopy Anonymous

After my recent gig, graphic recording for a Deloitte/MetLife meeting in Florida, I have not been able to stop drawing Snoopy. I told Jeannie Schulz I may need a Snoopy exorcism. Meanwhile,  a retired radiologist moved in next door yesterday. I made him the following welcome card.

Sustainable World Sourcebook

The latest version of the Sustainable World Sourcebook has recently been released by the Earth Island Institute. Once again I've illustrated the book with several cartoons, including this one. The Sourcebook does more than throw a spotlight on the problems we face. It is also a valuable resource for positive action. Available at

The Marine Mammal Center

This year's USC Alumni Service Day entailed an educational and rewarding day helping out all the sick seals at The Marine Mammal Center in Marin County. The fish kitchen smells just about how you'd expect it to. I spent much of my time scrubbing algae out of seal pools. Their new facility is something to behold...a state of the art hospital for seals of all sorts. Their heroic work is carried out by a staff of 45 and around 1000 volunteers. Bravo folks. You do amazing work.

This little elephant seal could one day weigh 4,500 pounds. Let's hope he makes it.
