Moonwalking Through the Pearly Gates

God. I didn’t really think any gainfully employed cartoonist would look at the Pigma Micron pen gripped between his/her fingers, then down at his/her 2-ply Strathmore Bristol paper, and think “Yeaaaah, THAT’s what I’m going to draw.” I was only half-kidding in my Twitter post yesterday, when I said “If any editorial cartoonists draw Michael Jackson moonwalking through the Pearly Gates, I will personally beat them down w/a sock full of quarters.”

That was a mistake. We’re in a Recession and I think an awful lot of cartoonists want my quarters. Here’s the first one I saw after a Tweeter sent me the link:

I’m afraid to visit to see how far this virus has spread.

“Michael Jackson” Candorville series available as a poster

***EDIT – Only five more orders are needed to cover the cost of a print run of posters.***

Buy the Michael Jackson “Last Goodbye” series as a commemorative poster, and all profits will go to support one of Michael Jackson’s favorite charities. If enough orders come in to cover the printing and shipping costs by next week, I’ll go ahead and order a print run of posters (keep in mind it takes about 2 weeks to order a batch of posters and mail them out). If there aren’t enough orders by next week, whoever’s placed an order will get a full refund. Posters will come on 11″x17″ frame-ready card stock and shipping & handling are included in the price. All profits will be donated to Aids Project Los Angeles. Here’s how to order:

Domestic Orders: $15 (includes s&h)

International Orders: $25 (includes s&h)

100% of the profits from this poster will be donated to Aids Project Los Angeles, one of MJ’s favorite charities.
