Rubes Cartoons - Tales from a Twisted Mind

A cartoonish look at life...

"Peanuts! Get your Peanuts here!"

Aug 07, 2009

When I was still in single digits, my grandmother gave me my very first cartoon book. It was a collection of Peanuts comics and I was instantly hooked. I must have read that book hundreds of times and laughed over and over again. In the mid '80s I had the privilege of meeting Charles Schulz in his Santa Rosa studio and was instantly impressed by what a gracious guy he was. I’m not the kind of person that usually gets starstruck, but that meeting was definitely an exception. On Saturday, August 8, I will be visiting Santa Rosa again, as I have had the honor of being asked to be the artist in residence that day at the Charles M. Schulz Museum. If you happen to be in the area or have friends in the area, I will be putting on my cartoony show from 1 to 3 in the afternoon. ( Gosh, just thinking about going there makes me feel like a kid again. I think I’ll go reread that book. (Yep, I still have it!)
