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 *).

Bigger Than a Breadbasket

In downtown Los Angeles a developer has lobbied the City Council to allow for apartments that are 165 sq. ft. Do you know how small that is? Someone would have to step outside if they wanted to change their mind. Ba da boom. You wouldn't need carpets, you'd have wall to wall shoes.

John... funny you should mention it but I was just thinking last week how small lifts (elevators) are becoming. Once they were huge and often had mirrored walls to give an even greater sense of space. But now... in this pared down, dollar conscious, user (un)friendly world in which we now live... everything... but everything must be built on a shoestring and no bigger than a matchbox. I share your angst.

Thought my little studio was small. It is a shed of 180 sq. ft, often thought of it as cozy but now thinking of turning it into an apt. No running water, kitchen or bathroom but those are just minor problems. Oh, did I mention no heat or cooling. Still no problem. Hey, it has a long extension cord from house to shed for electric usage. A veritable palace. (smile)
