Cartoons and Cocktails 2009

The Cartoons & Cocktails benefit auction is this Thursday, October 22nd at the National Press Club.
I think this might be the tenth year I've been asked to participate and donate a cartoon or two. I remember the first year I went, there were two original Peanuts daily strips amongst the cartoons for auction on the silent auction tables and I believe I got outbid for one of them at $75. Looking at the prices they command on ebay...I should have gone $77!
Here's one of the clunkers that I donated this year.

New logo!

The Georgetown University Library redesigned their website and decided it also needed a fresh new logo to go with the fresh look.
This design of mine is the one they liked the best. Incorporating Georgetown's "blue and grey," the ambiguous figure can be a book (the Library has lots of them) or tilted...a laptop computer. Brilliant!
The little pieces flying off into space can be seen as little pages of knowledge or citations or webpages or perhaps crumbling old pieces of book (the Library does have a preservation dept.) Anyway, it's fun to see my logo now on pens and plastic bags and stuff.
