From Tom G. Here’s one of the women listed. http://www.themarysue.com/female-military-leaders-300-artemisia/2/
A really good list. Thanks, Roz & Janet!
On Wednesday, April 15, the young librarians from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library pulled up in a big with van. They had come to pack up my life in cartoons to archive for the archives, for scholars to study. I was pleased and appalled. They went into the basement, stayed for a while and then anxiety forced me to leave and buy my tiny finches an enormous birdcage, which I returned the next day.
I was not able to part with my original cartoons on Wednesday. I have kept them to go through them, only 2000 or so. And pick out my favorites. Then Tom suggested I pick out the cartoons with a story and offer them for sale, one a day.
Here’s the first: When OJ was on trial. There were two prosecutors, one of them was Marcia Clark. Ms. Clark was divorced and it must have been acrimonious because her ex-husband was threatening to take the children because Ms. Clark was neglecting them to spend long hours on the trial. I did this cartoon and received a note from Ms. Clark reassuring me that I didn’t have to worry, that it was all right….her children were by her side. Yes, I am looking feverishly for the tiny note. I’m sure I put it somewhere safe, not in my letters file. I have a general letter file, a hate mail file and then file folders of the personal letters my friends sent me. I will keep looking , but at this moment only the original cartoon strip is for sale ($250) You’ll be the first to know if I find the note. Sylvia
Here’s a silent movie GIF that is wonderfully odd and funny, from Tom G. Happy Friday.
