The MJFF Gala

I need to say a little something about this weekend. Going to New York and meeting people at the MJFF, Team Fox, and so many of the teams was such an emotional weekend. Katy Reitz is the director of Team Fox and her and her wonderful husband are just amazing. I met other teams and folks with Parkinson over the few hours I was there. All I can really say is its not a team, It is family. I am glad they have accepted me with open arms. I am truly a lucky man.
Thanks to everyone who was so supportive of Team Cul de Sac. I love you guys!

Chris Sparks talks Team Cul de Sac

Episode 140 – Chris Sparks
by Tom Racine on March 25, 2012

"Team Cul de Sac" mastermind Chris Sparks joins me to talk about his amazing project to help raise money for Parkinson's Disease via the Team Fox organization, started, of course, by Michael J. Fox.  Cartoonist and all around mensch Richard Thompson was diagnosed with Parkinson's back in 2009, and Chris has organized 150 artists to contribute original work that will be auctioned off this summer, and has been compiled into a 144 page hardcover book coming out on June 5th.  Order your copy here!

The book and art auction contain works from a veritable "who's who" list of cartoonists, including 14 Reuben Award winners, 3 Pulitzer Prize winners, and a score of great artists from the web as well.  There's not much of a worthier cause out there, so do your part by picking up a copy.  You can stay abreast of the current information on when the actual art auction is this summer by reading Chris's blog. And naturally, if you're not keeping up with the man himself, here's a link to Richard Thompson's blog. Go forth and see the work of a master of our time!

We also manage to talk about comic books and comic shops, as Chris once owned one. He has a fascinating insider's look from the "brick and mortar" shop owner's perspective, and is something I've wanted to talk about for some time.
