I recently had the opportunity to be part of a gallery exhibition of cartoonists, at the Essex Art Center, Lawrence, Massachusetts. The show was a truly amazing opportunity to be a part of a group of exceptionally talented cartoonists.
Above left to right: Brian McFadden, Elena Steier, Norm Feuti, and Don Mathias.
There was the brilliantly funny, and subversive, political comics of Brian McFadden, of Big Fat Whale and The New York Times, The Strip; Elena Steier and her cute yet gothic comic strips, The Goth Scouts, Queen Of The Cosmos, and the Tee Dogs; and Norm Feuti, and his fantastically funny take on working in the wide world of Retail, in Retail, and the charming, and good-hearted tales of Gil.
The show which ran from January through February 2013, was a phenomenal success, and drew people and students all with the same unbridled passion and interest in comics, and the truly American art form of the comic strip. Please enjoy some of these pictures from the show, and head on over to each of the artist’s websites and enjoy all of the hard-work and passion that is part of each comic strip.

Hola mi amigos!
This morning I woke up to find that Chuck knows Spanish!
The awesome folks over at Elguidilla reposted the Peanizles comic strip from Monday, January, an14th, which in itself is always a nice gesture and fun to see, but this time it had been translated into Spanish.

I was definitely humbled, and just wowed by the fact that they even managed to mimic Chuck’s handwriting pretty darn well. So, for all those who might want to pass this along to the their Spanish speaking friends, or just want to see what it looks like in Spanish, head on over to Elguidilla.com and see what its all about!

Well, 2012 has officially packed it’s bags and moved out, and 2013 is trying to settle in.
For me, and the whole Peanizles gang, 2012 was a big, big year, and 2013 has some big shoes to fill. The biggest of which, is that Peanizles has joined forces with Hound Comics. Hound Comics is an international entertainment, comic and book publishing company. Their goal is to gather together the greatest collection of creative, talented people, and allow them to produce a diverse array of comic books, comic strips, children’s book, and animations available today. And I am honored to be a part of something so big and unique in publishing today. There, are many projects in the works right, now, most of which are still in development and as soon as I can tell you more specifics on what is coming your way in 2013, you better believe you’ll find out first, right here! So, in the meantime, head on over to Hound Comics and check out the great collection of artists, writers, and amazingly creative people I am proud to be a part of!

That’s right true believers! Stan, The Man, Lee, turned 90 today! The man responsible for creating such long-lasting characters as Spider-Man, The Hulk, Reed Richards, Sue Storm, the ever loving Ben Grimm, Johnny Storm, The X-men, and so many, many more. And so, in appreciation for all of his work, MTV and Stan Lee himself invited a handful of artists to help him celebrate this milestone birthday, by drawing him and some of his characters. And I had the unbelievable honor of being asked to participate, and to include the Peanizles gang in this birthday wish.
So head on over to the MTV website and check out my contribution, and tip of the hat to Stan Lee. And don’t forget to check out the work of Marc Silvestri, Dan Panosian, Camilla D’Errico, Ozzie Martin, Kieth Brown, and Sajad Shah.
