Yes, it’s true that I haven’t been cartooning as much recently and, no, it isn’t because I think the world is all fixed and everything is perfect, although it might be and I just haven’t noticed.  I’m a bit preoccupied with preparing for a huge-ass Mr. Fish art show at the Robert Berman Gallery in Santa Monica, California, happening on August 5/6.  The show comprises the pencil drawings that I use in my cartooning, plus some other fine art nitpickery.  All the stuff will be for sale, along with great stacks of Go Fish, signed by the author/potty-mouth jerkboy.  Anyway, will make sure everything gets back to normal soon(ish) and I hope to see some of you riffraff in CA in August.

The Shirt Hitting the Fan

Here’s a clip from the 2011 Webby Awards, when Egyptian filmmakers Mohamed Diab and Amr Salama, who is also a noted blogger, got a Special Recognition award for representing the people of Egypt during the recent protests and eventual ousting of President Hosni Mubarak.  The beautiful surprise that I received when I first saw this […]
