Special Cartoon from Guest Artist Arturo Ruiz

The past couple weeks have been exciting for us here in Phoenix. We've been seeing multiple days of rain! RAIN!!!!

I know that for those of you who are Portandish, San Francisco Treaty, or Seattlandic the rain is no big deal. For us desert dwellers though, it is amazing when this happens.

So many of our days are clear, clear, clear blue sunny skies. And, approximately eight months of our year is very hot. We are in a desert, so it is normally dry. When the rain comes.... we celebrate. We also forget how to drive, survive, avoid flash floods, and unclog drains. No doubt the sentence that precedes this one is what inspired the above cartoon. My friend, Arturo Ruiz, is the creator of it. He's a very intelligent, thoughtful person. And, when people are stupid, he hates it. Also, Arturo does improv with me in Robot Destroyers From Planet Earth... hey, we are playing tonight at The Trunk Space in Phoenix with our friends Mariachi Kittens. Come see us!

Fred the Mustard Packet Took the Time Machine Back to Visit H. P. Lovecraft

This past Wednesday I was at the Trunk Space art gallery here in Phoenix. They had a spectacular show filled with poets, comedy, puppets, and Psycho-Billy Rock!

Ash Naftule, Dain Gore, Ernesto Moncada and....... THE SLOW POISONER!!!

They all performed with many others, it was a real treat.

By the way, Dain Gore has been a guest art on this site and he wrote the foreword to the book. Dain is a sensational painter and puppeteer. He's one of my favorite people. And, The Slow Poisoner is one of my favorite musicians, writers, painters, comic book artists... etc. He's also one of my favorite people.

Check them out on the world wide web.

Thanks for reading and have a terror-iffic day!

Special Edition Cartoon from Guest Artist Samson Fisher!

Samson Fisher submitted this to me, he is the ten year old son of Bob Fisher and Shawna Franks.

I mentioned Bob in Wednesday's cartoon which can be found within the link below.

Samson has a remarkable amount of creativity. Bob said this about his son's creation, "Samson says that Fred is at the News Building, where all the news comes from.  When he pushes the button, random news gets generated."

So, friends, I think a bigger story is in order. I'm very inspired to show some of this random news that Fred is about create.

Also, Bob Fisher is a fantastic improv performer. He's based in Chicago (like many improvisors). When you read that he is in a show... go see it! The same goes for Shawna, but she prefers to have a script.

Good night and good luck.

Wait..... a ten year old has been reading this site.... uh-oh.
