Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail. For mugs, t-shirts, and other products visit my gift shop at www.zazzle.com/jcrowtherart* (be sure to include the *).

Time Flies

With computers, cell phones, i-pods, GPS systems and the like making our lives easier and presumably more enjoyable we forget how incredibly brief the "age of technology" has been. It was only a hundred and twenty nine years ago today that Edison first demonstrated his incandescent light bulb. That's shorter than twice my lifetime. For hundreds of thousands of years man got along without electric light, and then came this explosion of stuff. The problem is that our brain is simply not sufficiently evolved emotionally to deal with the amount of information constantly bombarding us, nor the speed with which it's accessible.
