NEW BOOK: Laughter, The Best Medicine (Reader's Digest Canada)

Back-to-back gag cartoons in new humour book.

I'm happy to announce that two of my gag cartoons are published in Laughter, The Best Medicine, a new book from the humour editors at Reader's Digest (Canada).

Dozens of professional cartoonists have contributed to the book. It's quite an honour to be printed alongside established veterans such as Mark Anderson, Pat Byrnes, John Caldwell, Roy Delgado, Benita Epstein, Randy Glasbergen, Mike Lynch, Patricia Madigan, Scott Arthur Masear, Dan Reynolds, Harley Schwadron, and Elwood Smith -- to name only a few!

"Showoff" & "Flag of Canada" (pg. 190 & 191)

To-date, I've had four cartoons published by Reader's Digest. My first was back in May with W32.Dog.E Virus, followed by Free Samples in August. My fifth will be in the December issue of the magazine.

A Laugh-Out-Loud Collection of the Funniest Jokes, Quotes, Stories and Cartoons.

ISBN: 0888508050 - Published: October 2006

DIGITAL PHOTOS: Fall Colours at The Falls

Being a cartoonist, Fall is definitely one of my favourite times of the year. The colours are more vibrant. The temperature is still comfortable. It's one of those rare times when Mother Nature shows off her full creative capacity, leaving all aspiring artists and seasoned professionals in awe.

It's happening right now.

But if you blink too long, you'll miss the show!

The following are a few memories that I captured today while hiking in Niagara Falls (Canada) with my wife...

All of the above photos were taken using a Canon PowerShot S3 IS digital camera.

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada ... and Stay TOONed!
