So here are a few notes I'd like to bring to your attention: 1. Becky Garrison's new book is out, Jesus Died For This?. I enjoyed reading it. Garrison is a satirist who is willing to take on anybody, and she does it with style and grace. Her sense of humor, that has gotten her in trouble more than once, certainly shines through the pages. It is a kind of autobiographical journal of her search for Jesus‚Ä¶ where she doesn't find him and where she does. Always surprising. The most poignant chapter for me was the story of her parents and her early childhood, "Holy Hippies". Powerful. You've got to read it. Besides, I really like Becky, consider her a friend, and believe we are very much on the same page. For good or ill. Plus: several of my cartoons appear in it. I always like that. 2. I am just waiting to see the first draft of my first book of a collection of my cartoons. I'm expecting it any day now. I'm really excited about seeing it in book form. However, I'm going to make it available immediately as a .pdf download for $9.99. Stay tuned for that! 3. The¬†film critic Roger Ebert used one of my cartoons in his blog post on Christopher Hitchens. In the Chicago Sun Times. That was exciting. He not only credited me, but he pointed his readers towards my image of The Woman Caught in Adultery, pictured above. It's satisfying to see the fruit of your efforts. 4. My new online friend Gurdur (he's been commenting lately on nakedpastor), has started an outreach blogfest, an attempt to provide a place of cooperation and community where we can celebrate our common humanity, whether we belong to a faith group or not. Check it out. Of course, I work hard to get my cartoons, comics and art out there. It is very rewarding to see that pay off when fly around the web. Sweeeeeet. Stay tuned for another image I'm putting up this afternoon called "I Shall Not Be Moved." Talk with me. You can purchase my cartoons, art, tees Please join my newsletter.
