Intimate moment: Here are my touching, parting words to my spouse as I leave her:
Note: only 2 (Trout and Sam) of the five cats are represented in this drawing.
I stopped four times enroute, either to consume or expel.
I was fortunate to be able to stay overnight with pals Isabella Bannerman and Jim Nolan. They put me up and fed me in style.
Finally arrive 5.5 hours later at Isy + Jim's home --
Do you want to go into Manhattan?

We attended a local gallery opening --
Artist: I had to remix the color 100 times before I was happy!
I could draw 100 cartoons in the time it takes him to draw one canvas.
But the best part of hanging with other cartoonists -- SHOP TALK! That's Isy talking on the left and me on the right.
Some interesting information from Jim! I didn't know about "image trackers" and now want to know more!
The next day was cartoon class. I taught for just over an hour.
We drew expressions:
We drew a banjo playing pig and a pig of a person. I told the kids about Guy Francis' and Stacy Curtis' Dueling Banjo Pigs site.
We drew people running:
We drew people running faster:
My favorite question from one of the kids:
I'll be back, teaching another cartoon class at the White Plains Public Library on November 19, 2011 2-3:15pm!
And a thank you to Gerry Mooney who stopped by and stayed for the whole class! Gerry also snapped a few photos. Thanks for the photos, Gerry!
