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.

A Wok On the Wild Side

Today is the 141st anniversary of Edison's phonograph, a fact that gives me pause. When I was a small lad we still had 78 rpm records, just a short step from the gramophone. My parents had a player that ran on electricity, but we were still a couple of years away from having a changer, and meanwhile I suffered with my wind-up. When the 33 rpm record came along it was a technological miracle. It's a long way from people walking the streets with a wire dangling from their ears and a blank, distant stare on their faces.

Outside of my favorite characters, this is one of your funnest cartoon, John C.
