The early Thompson - Science fiction fandom art
July 29, 2016
We compiled a lot of art that wasn't used in The Art of Richard Thompson book. Here's some raw scans of a selection of it. Richard's earliest published works were in the convention program for the local sci-fi con Disclave, and the fanzine Science Fiction Eye....
Both Stacy and Dave knew Richard - Stacy worked on Cul de Sac with him, and Dave interviewed him at length for a documentary.
Rest in Peace, Richard Thompson

Heroes Con 2011: Richard Thompson A Celebration
Richard Thompson: A Celebration
Is Cul-De Sac the best comic strip being published today?
Perhaps, but one thing is for certain, it is the best drawn and the
funniest. Okay, that's two things. Please join Mike Rhode and
some fellow strip creators as we sit down and examine the art of Mr.
Thompson. In addition to discussing craft and daily deadlines, we will
see if Richard can provide any insight as to whether poor Petey will
make it through the entire soccer season without having a psychotic
breakdown. Ahhh, total Bliss (haven).
With Craig Fischer and Team Cul de Sac's Chris Sparks.

Today we lost Mell Lazarus, not only a LEGEND in cartooning but a contributor to Team Cul de Sac.
Mell was such an icon in cartooning that I was always nervous to look at him. It was like looking into the Sun. He was just a star and everyone orbited around him. A true sweetheart.
Mell called me back in 2011 and said that he had lunch with Cathy Guisewite and she had told him about TCDS. He wanted to contribute and I was thrilled.
Thank you and much love Mell,
Chris, Richard, Mike and the whole TCDS gang.
Please read more about him at the links below.

The book is now out of print because we're adding to it and will have an actual publisher. Look for the 2nd edition of the book in Summer 2016 from Lost Art Books. Any profits from the book will continue to go to Team Cul de Sac.

We're pleased to announce that we (aka The Thompsons) are just about to sign the contract with Picture This Press for them to publish the grandly-themed Richard Thompson Library. Compleating Cul de Sac version 2.0 is being expanded by editor Rhode and designer Bono Mitchell with more interviews, more Thompson art and more Team Cul de Sac art, even as we type. Any profits from this book will continue to be sent to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to fund Parkinson's research, as we had arranged to do with the first edition.
The draft of The Incompleat Art of Why Things Are with an introduction by Joel Achenbach is in the hands of the publisher who's working with his designer on the book. Scott Stewart is continuing to work on a new collection of caricatures.
