… to be recognized as cartoonist in the Pacific Northwest,
is quite the honor , with all the cartoon artists and publishers hang’n out around there. You have to stand-out, with all that talent in the immediate area, I think it’s the weather, they stay inside a lot
or they “rust” .. and a toonies is a great name….Ta,Da
