A Not-So-Gentle Reminder

Tomorrow, June 5, marks the launch of Team Cul de Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line at Parkinson's, Chris Sparks' magnum opus and labor of love, and if I didn't know Chris I would imagine he's exhausted. Actually he may be but who can tell? Being exhausted just seems to fire him up.

Today Chris passed along Michael J Fox's reaction to the book:

“Richard Thompson is lucky to have a friend like Chris Sparks. With this amazing collection, Chris is raising significant dollars and awareness for Parkinson’s — while proving comedy can help speed a cure. We’re grateful to have both Chris and Richard on our team.” – Michael J. Fox.
Couldn't have said it better myself!

And Hey! There's an auction going on!

Chris has been a tireless (and I use the word on purpose) promoter of this great project. Very worthwhile and very commendable.

Chris Sparks said...

Wait, do I know this Chris? I like this Chris. Thank you Chris!

Sadly, for me, the stuff i wanted in the auction went quickly out of my price budget. But good for the charity.

Jason Dodge said...

Still lots of great Cartoon art from cartoonists you may not know. Most for very reasonable bid amounts.
You could be the guy bragging about how you got a great deal on so-and-so's art before so-and-so was famous.
Bid for some great art and to help fight Parkinson's.
