Really Good Grief!

I'm off to California to see family and friends and, if you're in Sonoma County, YOU at the Charles Schulz Museum on Sunday June 28 at 1pm.  But don't be afraid to show up early. The museum is awesome and they'll be showing some of my animated cartoons before the reading and serving free Ice Cream (while supplies last) in honor of Elephant and Piggie's SHOULD I SHARE MY ICE CREAM?  I'll also be featuring NAKED MOLE RAT GETS DRESSED, which was drawn with one of Charles "Sparky" Schulz's actual nibs!

A signing will follow the presentation.




Speaking of museums, here is a sneak peek at some odd bits of metal that will be assembled into a sculpture at a museum on October 1st.  What will it look like? Here's a hint.  Stay tuned for mo' info...


Fabricator Sam Ostroff figures out where to put the eye...




This stuff is HEAVY.


Proud Papa.
And last week, Nelson Willems, star of CITY DOG, COUNTRY FROG and first collector of dog artist Tilamook Cheddar made a cameo appearance in pal Hilary Price's Rhymes with Orange comic strip:


If you are in Chicago over the next 3 Sundays, why not head over to Millennium Park for a FREE performance of Emerald City Theatre's DON'T LET THE PIGEON DRIVE THE BUS!  That's at Noon on Sunday August 21 & 28 and September 4.



Finally, thanks to you, Elephant and Piggie's SHOULD I SHARE MY ICE CREAM? will spend next week on the NYTimes Bestseller list at #8 for it's 8th week.



Thanks, you!
