Fell's 15 minutes of fame!

Our very own Paul Fell can now retire a happy man... in today's (August 26, 2012) edition of the NEW YORK TIMES, the SUNDAY New York Times, Kate Murphy's piece on Randy Moody, co-chairman of Republicans for Planned Parenthood made mention of our fellow North Central Chapter member, Paul Fell.
When you see Paul at the Disney Toonfest next month, or at the Fall chapter meeting in October, be sure to ask him for his autograph.

Syd Hoff website

I received an email from Syd Hoff's niece, Carol Edmonston, yesterday. It reads like this:

I’m thrilled to let you know that has just been updated and expanded in anticipation of Syd Hoff’s September 4th centennial. The site now includes a rich selection of his cartoons from a multitude of national publications – cartoons which still have relevance in today’s world. Other additions include many Ad Commissions, Mystery Short Stories he wrote, his life Time-Line, and a Kids Page featuring the “how to’s” of cartooning using letters and numbers. It also includes a new section dedicated to cartoons he drew under his alias, A. Redfield, for left-wing publications during the 1930s, along with a PDF down-loadable chapter- “Syd Hoff – A.Redfield…Two Sides of the Same Coin.”

It is my intention to honor Syd’s legacy by having this website become a ‘living’ book - easy to update and expand – and one that anyone can locate. Please pass the word along to others and help me celebrate one of our country’s most prolific cartoonists and beloved children’s authors.

Stop Mickey Mousing around...


It's been a month, that's 30-days in cartoonist speak, and Paul's getting wild. We need examples of your incredible artwork for the Disney Toonfest and we need it now! Come on gang, it's not that tough. You've done it before. The Toonfest needs our support.
So far only five members have sent art. You have the details of what we're looking for.

This time it's even easier. Just EMAIL 2 or 3 electronic files to Paul Fell at (or me, that we can print off (color or black and white; 300 dpi would be preferred) or PACK UP 2 or 3 originals (matted or mounted, please) and get them off to the Toonfest office.

Disney Toonfest
207 Main Street USA

And, as always, the Toonfest will pay to return all mailed artwork (back to you).
