Richard Thompson exhibit in Ohio this spring

An exhibit of Richard Thompson's cartoons will be at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum in late March, shown with Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes. Curator Caitlin McGurk just spent 3 days selecting art for the exhibit, and it'll be good. 

This cartoon won't be included, but begin planning your trip now anyway.

New drawing hip

Amy sent this new portrait of Richards hip to us tonight. Sounds like he will be standing up on Friday.  Keep the love coming folks!

Richard's post-op state of mind

was 'funky' according to Nick. But he's apparently shaken off the anesthesia and is back to being his normal charming self. Updates to follow tomorrow, I assume.

Richard's out of surgery

Nick G has just written in to say that Richard is out of surgery and 'did great.'

Richard in surgery for his hip

Nick reports that Richard is now in surgery to replace his hip. More details as we get them.

12/3 medical update - surgery postponed again

And a medical update - Richard's surgery is postponed again for today (12/3) due to a fever he had last night. According to Nick Galifianakis he's pretty darn hungry since they've wanted him to have an empty stomach for the surgery.

Sending best wishes to Richard Thompson

As most of you know our beloved Richard Thompson broke his hip a few days ago. Instead of sending physical mail, please leave your elove right here!
Ecards can still go to his personal email but this would be better for Richard to check for the time being.
