The comic strip,  Cul-de-Sac, has been around since 2004. It was syndicated in 2007 and ran until 2012. It wasn’t in my loop of comics readership… but that’s about to change.

This short documentary on the cartoonist, Richard Thompson really touched me. As the video explains, he is succumbing to Parkinson’s and had to stop his comic strip, Cul-de-Sac. Having seen the work Thompson has done, and the skill with which he cartooned, he makes me want to be a better cartoonist.

It’s twenty minutes long. Make some time… you won’t be sorry.
