More Friday updates:

* I'm offering a drawing workshop for Marlboro students on May 20th as a fundraiser for the Marlboro Elementary School 7th and 8th grade class trip fund. For this first time out, we're offering the workshop to local students only, but if all goes well, we'll be doing more public workshops that will be wide open for those who wish to pay and participate. More info as this develops!

* In the meantime, the Center for Cartoon Studies summer workshops are on the calender, and those are wide open for any and all who care to participate, however close or far you may live. If you're up for a pilgrimage to White River Junction, VT this summer, here's the current schedule:
