Cartoon slideshow!!

For your blogging pleasure, I have put together a short musical slideshow based on some of my animal-themed editorial cartoons. Thanks to visitor feedback, I have modified it to allow each slide more viewing time. Let me know what you think of it.

Love this addition to the blog.

Fun. Funny. Provacative.


All the things editorial cartoons should be.

Very visually appealing.

This is a GREAT, fun way to look at some
of your cartoons. Love the color and music.
Keep up the good work, Chan!

Looks great. Good idea of making a theme slide show. Other themes coming soon??? Plllleeeeeezzzzz

Cool....really cool.

Great stuff. You should consider slowing it down a little. Can barely read the whole cartoon before the next one pops up...

From snake charmers to castrated dog owners---your ability to be snide yet funny keeps us coming back for more. And to Bill - you might consider taking a speed reading course.

as usual, liz said it best.

Dear Chan,

Thanks a million again and again for your brilliant internet cartoons. You just get better and better with this site. NOW I can laugh and laugh with Chan cartoon musicals all the time.

Great Show Biz, ChanStyle.

Let me guess, everyone who left a positive comment works in your news room? Get a clue. Your cartoons are great, but a PowerPoint slideshow of them is nothing special. Try entering this decade and do something original.

Great addition to your blogs!
Please slow it down a bit, almost got
cross-eyed trying to follow the fun!


I'm going to sign up for the speed-reading course, but I want to wear a T-shirt with the Lowe-Down cartoon on it. I absolutely love that one. Any chance of a whole series of those? Or at least a T-shirt?

To "You Must Be Kidding" - No, I don't work in the news room and I left a positive comment so you're off base. Are you that insecure that you need to criticize the positive comments made to Mr. Lowe? Was it ever mentioned by Mr. Lowe that he was a "guru" of Power Point? No, he simply indicated that he had put together a slideshow for our enjoyment. Obviously, you were weened on a dill pickle with your sour views.

To "Leader of the Pack"--
I agree with you wholeheartedly. I suspect
that "You Must Be Kidding" thinks that the way to go is animation. Maybe he should watch old Disney flicks if that's what he thinks is "original."
I found Lowe's slideshow to be marvelous.
And, no, I am not a journalist. I teach
Art HIstory.

Really good, but it runs a little too fast from frame to frame. Love your work, keep at em'.

Thanks so much for slowing the slideshow, I can enjoy and appreciate the cartoon, words and music so much more!
Another thing, it is sooooo gratifying that you are paying attention to your readers comments and suggestions!
Thanks again!
