Dave Kellett


I met Dave Kellett at Comic-Con International San Diego a few years ago. He had this cool web comic called Sheldon and I bought the first trade of it and he has been getting my money ever since. I consider Dave one of the greats, not only in web comics but in cartooning.
Please also check out his amazing comic documentary called Stripped! Yeah this guy needs something else to do so he was one of the first people I asked to donate art to Team Cul de Sac.
Dave, thank you so much for saying yes. It has been an honor to know you.

The R. Sikoryak

So at this point in the TCDS project we are getting quotes from folks about their art, about Richard or Cul de Sac for the book and later on for the auction.
So to keep the interest up.I want to share this amazing art from the one and only the legend R. Sikoryak!

Mell Lazarus Is The Sweetest Guy

So, Mell Lazarus sends me this collage of his favorite Cul de Sac moments, which I just loved. Little did he know, he sent it to me right after I left work. And I don't know about you, but when I leave work, I LEAVE WORK. I come back the next day to 4 voicemails from Mell. "Hello, Caty, I hope you don't think I'm crazy..." He just wanted to make sure I got it. He's not the craziest I've seen.
I think this piece is so fun. It reminds me of all of the silly, funny, charming and energetic vignettes I have enjoyed reading in the strip over the years. It reminds me of Mell. Thanks so much.
