I'm not sure why he's laughing . . I'd cracked off a couple one-liners ( I wish he liked my cartoons as much as he did my one-liners ! . . At least I know how to make him laugh with WORDS. )
Roz Chast, Booth and Diffee were there and gave autographs. Wonderful presentation.

On Monday, Sept. 10th, Bob Weber and I drove into Los Angeles and got together with long-time legendary Playboy Cartoonist Marty Murphy and we all sat on the porch for a couple hours and talked about the business . . I hadn't seen Marty since the late 80's . . I've always thought that Marty was one of the, if not the funniest of all the Playboy cartoonists . . . I've always liked his style. It was great to see Marty again.

Photo L to R: Suzanne, Marty Murphy, Michelle Urry and Rowland B. Wilson.
This photo, probably 1981 in Westport, Connecticut . . . Rowland won the award for Best Editorial Cartoonist and they were interviewing him Suzanne tells me.
Bob Weber Sr. and I rented a car in Tucson, AZ on Sept. 7, 2007 and drove to San Diego and after a couple calls, we were graciously invited to Jim and Bernita's 'place' . . a truly lovely home and studio in Encinitas.
Photo L to R . . ( In Jim's studio ) Jim Whiting, ( President, Southern California Cartoonists' Society ), George Gladir, ( Creator of SABRINA, THE TEEN-AGE WITCH ), Suzanne Lemieux Wilson, ( wife of the late renowned cartoonist, Rowland Wilson ), Suzanne's own fantastic creative art was ALL OVER the the animated classic, ANASTASIA . Top row on right is Bob Weber Sr., who has Molly & Moose with King Features Syndicate and Slylock Fox & Comics for Kids also syndicated by King with over 415 Newspapers. Slylock Fox is a popular comic recently picked up by The Los Angeles Times. Bob Weber Jr. is the creator and both Bobs produce the feature.
Important trivia point: The drawing table with built-in light box you see behind Jim and George was originally the one that belonged to SAM COBEAN ! Sam was Jim's mentor and Mrs. Cobean generously passed it on to Jim after Sam's sudden and tragic death.
