Robin Williams art donation

Robin Williams was one of the brightest stars in my universe. With the recent news of Robin Williams having Parkinson's I have had people ask me what Team Cul de Sac could do. Any cartoonist this week that has done a Robin Williams tribute cartoon and would like to donate the original art to Team Cul de Sac, please contact us at and follow us Team Cul de Sac on facebook and check out . We will auction all the art we recieve to the Michael J Fox Foundation in Robin Williams honor. He loved comics and is there a better way to remember Robin?
Please Share and ask your favorite cartoonist for a donation:

Robin Williams

Robin Williams
Nobody has made me laugh like Robin did. I will miss him more than I care to admit. Today we found out Parkinson's had decided to attack  another comic genius. I hate Parkinson's. I hate how it has destroyed people I am close to. This is why I fight for a cure. After you read the Variety article please watch the video below. Smile and laugh and remember the great Robin Williams.

Over the last 6 years, my friendship with Richard Thompson has me learn one thing,Parkinson's sucks. I hate what it has robbed him of. I made many new friends due to Parkinson's and I hate P.D. Damnit, Please consider donating to our Michael J Fox Page. We have almost raised 200k in the last 5 years.

The Power of Bill and the Team Cul de Sac auction roundup


The power of Bill. That is what Stephan Pastis said about Bill Watterson in Comicriffs today. I can't agree more.
We could spend all day telling you what a difference Bill Watterson has made in our Team Cul de Sac but we won't embarrass him too much.
I will say this about the guy. He is wonderfully kind, humble, a great friend and if my cat Gizmo ever escapes the house, I am calling Bill to rescue her.

Thanks Bill.

Final day of auction for 3 Pastis-Watterson strips

Watterson/Pastis Auction ends soon!

 Folks, the auction is almost over! Register through Heritage and start bidding!

At the moment the three strips are at $37,000. Plus the MJFF will get the .0975 that Heritage will donate back from the buyers premium to the MJFF. This will bring us at $40,607.50 plus the $14,502.98 we have raised so far this year = 55,110.48 for the year. How much higher will it go?
