Evil Mrs.Cadaver

The Evil Mrs.Cadaver lives next door. Ollie and Quentin are a bit spooked by her but, like the time my son hit a wasp nest with his stick, they can't help goading her whenever possible. I am now writing a series of strips to introduce her to us properly.

The wasps stung my daughter.

Brendan Burford, my editor at King Features, said I could come up with something better than "Jerk"... but I can't.

I drew this strip the week before my trip to New York and would you believe it, one of the Sales Team I met there was called Richard Heimlich.

New York

I'm back! It went really well. Everyone seemed very positive. I was made to feel very welcome by some very nice people. Fantastic to meet Brendan at last. The Hearst Tower is incredible with wonderful views. Even managed to do some sightseeing including a run round a hot Central Park. Much hillier than I expected and SO many people at 7am. Remember to buckle up in the cabs and don't pay $150 for the ride out to Newark airport like I did!

So, back to drawing strips and it's now up to the sales guys to do their stuff.

New York

At last! It's been almost a year but I'm off to New York for the sales launch. Finally get to meet Brendan Burford tomorrow evening for dinner which I'm really looking forward to. Then meet the sales team and do my presentation on Wednesday morning. Don't fly back till Thursday evening so a chance to do some sightseeing and maybe a run in Central Park. Well, both my brothers have done it so I've got to complete the set.
