In a couple of weeks over 90 cartoonists will mark the tenth anniversary of September 11th 2001 with a series of cartoons. Here are a couple of articles about the event
The Toronto Star
Some of the original artwork will be on display at 5 museums from New York to San Francisco as well as this dedicated web site
I’ll post more as we get closer to this great project.

If you zip on over to Whacky Shorts Creations you can read the short interview I did with terrific illustrator and cartoonist Carolina Pedraza. She’s been collecting interviews with other creative types, asking “why people draw?”. (She obviously has a passion for drawing….even her baby has started drawing!)
These kind of interviews are always fun to read so check out some of her previous entries…

Thanks again Carolina!
My 11 year old niece is away at camp for the first time this summer and yesterday I got a small envelope in the mail. In it was a brief letter and this great little wood burning piece. It reminds me of a leather key chain I made around the same age during a cub scout weekend…except they didn’t let us burn anything. We only got to emboss or engrave the leather.
I think burning would’ve been more fun.
