As the creator of this comic strip and the scribe of occasional commentary therein, I will in no way shape or form be voting for anyone resembling this cartoon candidate. I would however, vote for this cartoon candidate before I would vote for anyone that he resembles. That being said, I will definitely vote, and thankfully NOT for a cartoon character.
There will, it seems, be bullies. A Polar Bear Post Card in the style of fellow children's book illustrator, Ben Clanton, and in homage to my first book, The Practically Perfect Pajamas.
Tin Tin (in polar bear form) weeps - and Snowy growls protectively - for the victims of the Brussels attack. Pretty hard to believe that there is cause for a second polar bear post card with this theme, but perhaps the same connectedness that spreads the news of tragedy can also rally a world around better days ahead.
A little slow in my post card production the week, but I'll still get five new images into the mail by Saturday. Today we celebrate the first new Alaskan butterfly discovery in 28 years. Welcome the Tanana Arctic (Oeneis tanana).
100 Polar Bear Post Cards... and only about 215 more to go :) Join the fun and send the President one or two of your own!
In the continued "Read Across America" theme for the week, yesterday was World Book Day. I think this works! Post Card No. 100 goes into the mail today and it will be live on the blog sometime Saturday morning. I mean, not that I have anything super special planned for my 100th card, but it IS the 100th and that certainly feels like a milestone :)
Happy Birthday Dr. Suess! And from the Lorax, some fine words for the Post Card Project:
"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not!"
