Want to know instantly when I update my blog? Add to your web feeds.

So much to tell you since my last post. Why so long? I've been busier than a guppy's midwife on the other side of my web world: Trowbridge Chronicles, my new illustrated blog. I'm delighted with the response that I've gotten from Mrs. Trowbridge's amazing journal. Check it out, and leave a comment. I would love to hear from you.

Thank you to all of the schools and people that I've met in my most recent appearances: Willamette Valley Christian School, near Salem, Oregon...North Sound Christian School's Young Authors' Olympics for 2006...2006 Northwest CE Conference in Redmond, Washington: I've been doing my workshops at this conference for a long time. We lost count at 20 years. If you would like me to be a part of your next school assembly or conference, please contact me. You can get more information about my school programs by clicking on "School Programs".

We have new maps to show you too. Click on "Fun Maps" and check out our new Marion County, Oregon Map, plus our new North Cascades, Washington Map. Then scroll down and read more about them at Adventures in Mapland. It gives you a photo enhanced, behind the scenes look at each map that we produce.

And that's not all. The California Gold Coast Map has finally been released. I spent six months last year on that project...just finished it this past January. It's so big, I don't know if I will have it on my web site, but you CAN find it at I just went to their site and it still says "Coming Soon". Keep checking back if you want to see it.

Click on "Fun Maps" and you'll see my brand new PW&U Roundabout convention booth map. I draw maps for conventions too! I'll do anything for a buck, or more. If you want to make a big splash at your next convention, one of my wacky maps would be just the ticket.

I'm now an official member of the National Cartoonists Society. And my official page is now posted on the members list at the society's web site:

If you want to see me "in action" at my fast draw easel, tune in to TLC's new television show, "Honey, We're Killing the Kids!" The director tells me that the first episode airs on April 10. I'm supposed to be in an episode that airs "sometime in June". It was great fun experiencing reality TV from behind the scenes, and in front of the camera.

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