GROWING UP LAUGHING

One of my caricatures (of Stephen Colbert) is included in the new book by Marlo Thomas, “Growing Up Laughing: My Story and the Story of Funny” (Hyperion).

The back cover of the book also features a thumbnail of the Colbert caricature, together with the work of the other contributing artists — Tim Foley, Chris Galvin, Bob Kurtz, Chris Morris, Stephen Silver, Brian Smith, Taylor Smith and Zach Trenholm.

WITH THANKS TO MR. DAVE HILL

My son Ethan and I produced this illustration as a joint effort — based on an idea from comedian Dave Hill:

BEST CALENDAR EVER

Long before the first Lolcat learned to say “I can has cheezburger?” — way back in 1997, when my oldest son was just five years old — he came up with an idea for a Christmas gift he figured I’d like.

He had spotted a “Cuddly Cats” wall calendar and somehow got inspired to add his own personal touch to the photos: When he got home, he grabbed a Sharpie pen to give each kitten a pair of quickly-rendered Groucho Marx glasses, heavy eyebrows and a moustache.

(Thanks, Ethan; It’s still my all-time favorite calendar!)
