I recently had a show of my cartoons at the Prairie Center for the Arts. I\u2019ve been part of other shows before, but this is the first time I\u2019ve had a show of only my cartoons. It was really exciting, but it was also a massive amount of work. The day I set up I must have climbed up and down this little ladder a few hundred times. And then there\u2019s the walking to the other end of the room to judge position, straightness, etc \u2026 Never mind hefting all the framed art. It was a workout! One of my favorite moments, however, came at the end of the day as everything had been hung and I was cleaning up. Two elderly women walked through the room and began looking at the cartoons. You don\u2019t often get a chance to be a fly on the wall like this so I just stayed busy in the background and listened. When they got to this cartoon, one commented grumpily \u201cI don\u2019t understand. Why would a mouse build a mousetrap?! That doesn\u2019t make any sense. I don\u2019t like these. Where\u2019s the bathroom?\u201d You\u2019d think I\u2019d be hurt, right? Or maybe a little disappointed. But she was so unhappy with this cartoon that it was hilarious and it took all I had to not burst out laughing. Other people I saw seemed to enjoy the cartoons in the gallery, but that lady was hands down my favorite.
