I'm delighted to announce that Chalk & Cheese has been chosen to feature in the much anticipated Team Cul de Sac book (Andrew McMeel Publishing), to be published 2012.
Cartoonists were invited to donate original art made especially for the book which is designed to raise awareness about Parkinson's disease, in honour of Richard Thompson (he being the genius behind the utterly fabulous Cul de Sac comic strip). Part of the profits from the
sale of the book will benefit the Michael J Fox Foundation (MJFF);
the original art submitted will also be auctioned as part of the fundraiser, with all of
the auction money going to MJFF. Additionally, there will be a limited
number of deluxe edition books signed and numbered by Richard Thompson himself.
My cartoon has Chalk and Cheese meeting Cul de Sac's Mr. Danders the guinea pig (gweep!) and will feature alongside cartoon greats such as Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes), Patrick McDonnell (Mutts), Jim Davis (Garfield) and children's illustrator Mo Willems.
