Tooning Deaf Ears

How cool is this?

Two of my special areas of interest - cartoon strips and the disabled - intersected on Thursday nite when some most excellent cartoonists (noted for their animal 'toons) came together to fundraise for NEADS/Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans. Hilary Price of Rhymes with Orange, Mark Parisi of Off the Mark, and the amazing Lennie Peterson, formerly of The Big Picture and now of a gazillion other artistic pursuits, were all there.

Some of you will know that The Big Picture was kind of a weblog in pictures and featured Lennie's cat, Ginger, who died very recently (in real life and in the strip). Lennie stopped the strip after that, but obviously he has not stopped his work on behalf of animals. Go Lennie!

Thanks to Mike for pointing this out to me. Made my day.
