|Occupation||Professor, Sheridan College|
|Introduction||I draw cartoons and write. I'm considered good at the former, am accused of being reasonably decent at the latter. I enjoy learning new and peculiar things and have developed a penchant to share this information with total strangers. I've worked in feature, television, commercial animation; illustrated and written books; and draw caricatures for amusement and occasional publication.|
|Interests||Buster Keaton, animation, comedy, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, cats, Impressionist and Post Impressionist art, caricature, Chuck Jones, books, Douglas Adams, Sherlock Holmes, Mark Twain, classical music, jazz, Queen Elizabeth I, Roycroft, ragtime, chocolate, travel Europe, travel Australia, travel Canada, humor, books, music, hoaxes, elephants, dolphins, dogs, cooking, pop culture, Laurel and Hardy, Monty Python, environment, vegetarianism, veganism, bicycles, local farmers' markets and cooperatives, recycling and conservation, and world peace if that's at all possible.|
|Favorite Movies||Buster Keaton, most of the Chuck Jones cartoons, the Marx Brothers, Laurel and Hardy, Donald Duck (when he was cute), and comedy in general.|
|Favorite Music||Bach, Chopin, Mahler, Bessie Smith, Ravel, Debussy, Gershwin, Satie, The Blues, jazz, ragtime, Irish, Australian, and African music--just about any kind of music except fusion or rap.|
|Favorite Books||THE GOOD SOLDIER SCHWEIK, THE MASTER AND MARGARITA, THIS SIMIAN WORLD, A SHORT HISTORY OF PROGRESS, and what can only be described as Odd Books.|
You're in the grocery store with a broken cart. How will you ever be that hungry?
Um, I use canvas bags and shop at farmers' markets and local cooperatives. And how many grocery stores have only one cart?
