Schulz meets Bode

I had a grand time holding court at the Schulz Museum today. At the end Mark Bode and his wife Molly showed up. I met Mark in 1975 following the untimely death of his father, the late great underground cartoonist Vaughn Bode. I initially moved to the Bay Area to help continue his legacy. Mark has grown up carrying that torch, becoming a remarkable artist in his own right. Today the wife of Charles Schulz met the son of Vaughn Bode in a cosmic collision of above ground and underground cartooning history.

Good grief, Charlie Brown!

I'm moving back into Snoopy's house for the month of March for my second stint as Cartoonist-in-Residence at the Charles Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA. Now, if they'd just move over a little there might be a little room for me on top of that doghouse.
