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 *).

Face to Face

It was bad enough when a simple "Good-bye" gave way to "Have a nice day," which became nearly ubiquitous in Los Angeles, especially in supermarket check-out lanes and among bank tellers. At some point (notice I didn't say "at some point in time") "Have a good one" crept into our everyday language and has remained. Have a good what one, for goodness sake? Dinner? Bath? Bowel movement?

John C, Harley has surpassed himself. Superb cartoon! and if I were not already in love with Harley and Bear (I am a two man women), I would fall in love with them again.

Have a good one sounds almost aussie! LOL Only one thing worse than "have a nice day" and that's "how's your day been?". I feel like braining the person who's mouth those four little words + contraction come out of! LOL Yes agree with Lee... Harley and Bear are an incomparable pair!

Ohmygod, yes, Jean, "how's your day been?" (which thank God has not made an appearance here) is horrible! I'm delighted you and Lee like the "guys." Thanks to you both.
