Next thing I know we are on the air discussing the con, Drink and Draw and those beautiful Watterson/Pastis strips.
The whole weekend was great and I had a blast catching up with old friends and making new friends but we can get into all of that fun stuff later. Here is the BIG news!
Drink and draw Roundup!
So here we go, for the week of drink and draw, we made 7087.98, PLUS I sold a signed Calvin and Hobbes book and signed Stripped Movie poster for 3,000 during that week for a total of $10,087.98 and then we have the other donation. This puts us at:
Goal: $10,000.00 ( 2014)
We still have 3 strips by a pair of cartoonists to auction off in August.
Not bad huh?
A big thanks to everyone involved this past weekend! WOW!
I will share more soon!

“WATSON” Retro-Pack for Team Cul de Sac:
Creating this collection of original “Watson” art for Team Cul de Sac was a great thrill.
As many of you know, Bill Watterson (“Calvin and Hobbes”) has been one of the great
supporters of Team Cul de Sac, which is amazing since his work has already inspired
so many. The work Richard and Bill are doing is an essential part of addressing the
challenges now facing families, friends, and loved ones affected by Parkinson’s. – I
seldom produce original “Watson” art for any reason, but jumped at the chance to support
Team Cul de Sac in any way I could. To be aligned with a cause as important as this one
is an absolute good and I’m honored to be a part of it.
1) Ten 3.5-inch Retro Watson floppy disks, all hand-detailed with original “Watson” art.
2) An 8” x 11” original Watson drawing on acid-free archival quality paper.
3) A “Thank You” letter from Jim with his personal e-mail to unlock an amazing 3-hours
worth of personal cartooning advice (drawing tips, writing tips, starting a web-comic)
via telephone or video-chat to be used at any time (it never expires!) for you or a
Auction Price: TBA!!!!
BIO: Jim Horwitz is the creator of the cult comic strip “Watson,” a nationally lauded
web-comic nominated for Best Online Strip by the National Cartoonists Society. Watson
has been appearing online since 2010 and is read weekly by fans (aka “Watsoneers”) all
over the world.

Editorial cartoonist Steve Artley drew 2 cartoons for our Team Cul de Sac auction next weekend! He also drew some coasters too, while waiting for Stephan Pastis to start talking. Steve is in the Team Cul de Sac book also.
Shannon helps us every year at the drink and draw. He always wants to do whatever he can to help raise awareness and funds for the Michael J Fox foundation. Richard and I not only consider him one of the founding members TCDS but also a wonderful friend.
This is the cover of G.I. JOE 200 and the recreation of the original sketch by Larry,
Hama. We also have comics sign by Larry also.
Matt Wuerker is Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist who lives in the D.C. area. Matt always donates art to us and beyond this beautiful watercolor of Earth Day, we also have some cool coasters he scribbled on!
