We just delivered our brand new Bonney Lake, Washington Cartoon Map. Click on "Fun Maps" to check it out. For an even better look at our maps, go to www.cartoonmaps.com. Click on "Click here for maps". Our maps are in the Washington and Oregon section. They use Flash technology which allows you to zoom in as close as you want and pan all around the maps. It works great. Thanks to Julie and Susan for a great sales job on the Bonney Lake map.

We're getting a great response to our new Skamania County, Washington Map. Each merchant received 200 free maps, and we're getting reports that the visitors are gobbling them up so fast that the merchants can't keep them in their stores. And the map's only been out for a few days. Part of Skamania County includes Mount St. Helens, and Mount Adams. It's beautiful country. Check out the map and see for yourself. Thanks to Judy Bair for selling out the Skamania Map.

I just got back from Ventura, Ojai, and Oxnard, California. That's my newest map locale. I spent a week down there on the gorgeous California Coast photographing buildings and researching the area. While there I took a fabulous yacht cruise on the ocean, compliments of the local chamber of commerce. The map will be very large, full color, and realistically drawn with mind-numbing detail...every single building in the downtown areas will be depicted. My brain will surely turn to oatmeal before it's over. I'll keep you posted on progress.

Also new in the fun map file: Chehalis, Washington, my first black and white cartoon map.

My son, Eric, and I are working on a brand new Flash animation project, a series of five animations built around songs produced by the well-known tall-haired big band leader, Vince Vance. I'll finish the first two backgrounds tomorrow. It's an extensive project that will take the better part of a year to complete. It seems that there's always something to keep me up late at night and over the weekends. But, as I've been known to say, it sure beats working at Boeing.

That's it for now. Stay tuned for more fun stuff from the outer edge of my ever-expanding Cartooniverse.
