Helicopter Parents

This cartoon was prompted by a story I heard out of Ohio University. The student laundromats are now hooked up to the internet, so students can load their laundry into the washers or dryers and return to their rooms to track the progress of their laundry on their computers.

One student I heard about called his mother in Iowa and asked her to log on and track the progress of his laundry while he went out and did errands, then to call him on his cell to let him know when it was done.

D-5 Speedball Nibs

Does anyone know where I can find D-5 Speedball lettering nibs? I've been told they're no longer made and the one (yes, one) I've been nursing along for the last several years has about given up. It's my favorite nib for lettering my editorial cartoon captions.

The Fear Thing

Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead

What I've Been Up To Part 1

My multitudinous deadlines keep me from taking on extra projects as a rule. I seldom look up from my drawing board, and when I do I see my large family looking longingly at me for attention. Seems lately that every extra drawing I agree to do haunts me from my bulletin board until finally I get around to it, often weeks late, stretching the patience of all involved.

Nonetheless, I've completed a couple of projects recently that I'm proud of and wanted to share with you.

This is a print I've done for the Cincinnati Art Museum's 125th Anniversary. It may be lost on non-Cincinnatians who don't know the museum, but it refers to the creation of four iconic works from the collection: Jim Dine's Bathrobe; Andy Warhol's Pete Rose;Grant Wood's Daughters of the American Revolution; and Frank Duveneck's Whistling Boy.

I tried to imagine the relationship between the artist and his subject as he worked.

The CAM has made a black-and-white print of the piece available through their gift shop. Images of the original paintings and drawing I've referred to may be on the CAM website.

What I've Been Up To Part 2

Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park is one of the great treasures in the Cincinnati area. The rolling hillsides festooned with monumental sculptures are the brainchild of (and a gift from) the wise and charming Harry Wilks. If you haven't been there, you're really missing a treat. It's about 30 minutes north of Cincinnati off of Route 27, about halfway to Miami University.

This fall Pyramid Hill will host its 4th annual Art Fair, a perfect autumn lark. I've done the posters for all of the fairs, and I like this one best. (Actually you're seeing the raw elements, just completed last night -- the designer hasn't had a chance yet to pull the complete poster together.)
