For $2,000, a lovely Rabbinical student from Sharon, MA got the answer right. PHEW!!
Even though the show had taped already, I was told not to broadcast the news. But to secretly celebrate, I did draw a Jeopardy-themed strip to run that day.

The Moth Story Slam Last Night– I Mothed It! http://rhymeswithorange.com/2014/11/19/the-moth-story-slam-last-night-i-mothed-it/ http://rhymeswithorange.com/2014/11/19/the-moth-story-slam-last-night-i-mothed-it/#comments Wed, 19 Nov 2014 19:22:36 +0000 http://new.rhymeswithorange.com/?p=321402 Continue reading ]]> Photo Nov 19, 9 26 51 AM

I love The Moth Radio Hour, and lucked into being one contestants last night in the Brattleboro, VT Moth Story Slam. The theme of the the night was “last minute.”
My five minute horror tale (about last minute items I got at the grocery store before a big date) got the high score, which means I get to tell a different story (theme not yet known) in Burlington, VT this winter for their Grand Story Slam. There’s no guarantee that last night’s story will be available for viewing. If it is, I will post about it.
Oh, and I liked the MC of the evening. Her name is Hillary as well (but spelled with two “L”s), and she also cartoons! But she’s more known for her stand up comedy–check out Hillary Boone.

To celebrate the win, I treated myself to some new hot wheels cars at the grocery store this morning.

By the way, my Open Studios event a couple weekends ago was big fun, and I got to draw on an ankle cast. I also got a $5 bill from 1953! Check out the difference:

The cat likes to bring the live chipmunk inside the house through the cat door and let it go. For him, the game is over.

And now it is the dog’s turn, and in the excitement of the chase, the living room explodes. This is where I come home and arrive upon the scene.

The chipmunk finds safety by squeezing between two faces of the sliding door:

Using an assortment of kitchen utensils, I safely remove the chipmunk, and release him outside.

Where he runs up the gutter.

I did not think this was an issue, as my dog has never been able to catch a chipmunk, inside OR outside the house.  I did not realize how frustrating this was to him until several days later.

Visiting the Inner Sanctum of Richard Thompson (The Cartoonist, Not The Singer) http://rhymeswithorange.com/2014/10/29/visiting-the-inner-sanctum-of-richard-thompson-the-cartoonist-not-the-singer/ http://rhymeswithorange.com/2014/10/29/visiting-the-inner-sanctum-of-richard-thompson-the-cartoonist-not-the-singer/#comments Wed, 29 Oct 2014 21:46:11 +0000 http://new.rhymeswithorange.com/?p=320702 Continue reading ]]> A few weeks ago in DC I hung out with Richard Thompson, creator of the comic strip Cul De Sac and the longtime illustrator extraordinaire.  If you want to see funny artwork to break up your day, check out his blog. (I won’t be offended if you leave this page.  It’s totally worth it.)

I just ordered The Complete Art of Richard Thompson to give myself for my birthday.


We spent the afternoon flipping through files and files of his work.  Here is his actual wedding invitation.  (Note: Despite the look on their faces, he and his wife are still married.  And even more incredible, it was Richard’s mother who set them up.)

Here’s the bunch of us in his studio:

At the end of my visit, I looked over at this statue on his bookshelf:

Then I asked, “What does Colonel Sanders mean to you?”

“That’s Mark Twain,” he said.

Marceline is where Walt Disney spent formative years in his childhood, and was deeply affected by the town.  Every year Marceline sponsors Toonfest, where professional cartoonists are invited to town and treated like royalty.  We spoke to the 400 high school students about our craft and got to tour the amazing Walt Disney Hometown Museum.

And, best of all, we got to be Grand Marshals in the parade…


This photo series was shot by the amazing editorial cartoonist Steve Artley, one of the other honored guests at Toonfest.  In addition to editorial cartoons, he’s launching a Twilight Zone type series of illustrated stories called The Aphelion Arc.

The other Grand Marshal this year were cartoonists Bill Hinds, Eddie Pittman and Guy Gilchrist.

We had a blast at Toonfest!
