Team Cul de Sac

Hi, this is Raymond Jarrell and I just got in the "Team Cul de Sac: Cartoonists Draw The Line At Parkinson's" book.  All of the money made from selling the book will go to Parkinson's research charities.  My Dad got in the book too and our art is on the same page.  All the artwork got put in an auction and people bid on it.  That money will go to charity too.

Cul de Sac is a comic strip that runs in the newspaper every day drawn by Richard Thompson who has Parkinson's.  I also read it online at Go Comics.  What I like about the comic strip is that the preschoolers use goofy words like static elastricity.  A lot of little kids and some times even adults make those kinds of mistakes.  I did that one time with the word exclusive...I said suplusive.  Also I like how super sketchy Richard's drawings are.  He gets the emotions right on all the kids faces.  Like when a character is surprised or excited he makes their eyes HUGE!
