Bill at San Francisco Sketchfest on January 12!

Dear readers and fans,

I hope you all had a great holidaze season.  I call it "holidaze" because all of the parties and events leave me in a daze!  Also, I wish you all a wonderful 2019.

There's an event coming up real soon that I want to let everyone know about.  This coming weekend, Saturday January 12 in fact, I'll be in San Francisco, performing at the famous Sketchfest, as part of the San Francisco Comedy Festival.  Apparently, it's a really big deal.  Other luminaries who have attended: Billy Crystal, Conan O'Brien, Gene Wilder, Spinal Tap, David Byrne (he's a comedian?), Fred Armisen and many others.  And it's been going on for 18 years now.

So you can guess that's it's basically set up for stand-up comedians - so it's very rare that they invite an animator to this august event.  Since I'm not a particularly funny guy in person, I surely hope that this audience is not going to be waiting to hear me tell jokes.  BUT I believe I can make them laugh with my drawings - so I'll be showing some of my classic cartoons, plus some brand new ones.  I have a couple of new "Trump Bites", plus the world premiere of my brand new short, "Sex & Violence III". 

Plus, I will give everyone who comes a free sketch of one of my popular characters.  So I hope anyone and everyone who lives in the Bay Area can make it - or if you know people who live nearby, please send them the information.  My event is on Saturday, January 12 from 4 pm to 5:30 pm, at the Brava Theater Center, 2781 24th Street in San Francisco.  For tickets and the full schedule, please follow this link:

This week's cartoon is fairly timely, I think, now that we're all throwing out our Christmas trees.

See ya,

Bill P.
