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* (be sure to include the *).

Sibling Ribaldry

My parents liked to tell me and my two brothers that my older brother was an "accident," I was "planned," and my younger brother, like the older brother, "just happened." In true kid fashion I enjoyed lording it over my siblings by reminding them that I was the only one of us who was really wanted, but my older brother turned it around on me. My folks liked him so much, he claimed, they had another, but I was such a disaster they were loathe to have more.

My younger brother was a "d.a.(damned accident) but he turned out to be not so bad... (once I got used to the fact that he wasn't the baby sister I had been promised) grin

These cartoons are great John... they have given me a daily chuckle across a difficult week. Thank you.

Jean, I don't think there's any greater compliment that you could pay me. I only hope that whatever's been darkening your week passes quickly. (And for anyone who doesn't know about it, visit Jean's terrific blog at: She's talented and wise.)
