Richard Thompson's Studio

A few photos from Richard Thompson's studio by Chris Sparks, nicked from his Facebook page. Thanks, Chris.

Richard's memorial service is today at 1pm at the National Press Club, Washington, DC.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, either directly or through Team Cul De Sac (

I regret not being able to attend the service this afternoon. I will be thinking of Richard today ... and for many more days of my cartooning life. He was a soft-spoken genius with the pen.

Not sure if you heard about it, but cartoonist Bob Schochet passed away almost a month ago.

Richard never actually really drew in this studio. He moved into this house when he was no longer able to go down the stairs in his old house.
