Today’s high is an unusually warm 62º. Sunday we have a 70% chance of snow with a high of 37º predicated. Here’s a cartoon I drew using characters from The Big Belch. Think it sums things up? For folks who don’t know, The Big Belch is my graphic novel about oil. The cartoon with more info on the novel The Big Belch.
The Big Belch, the graphic novel, uses humor to get across just how criminally crazy our behavior is toward the natural environment. The Big Belch, 116 pages of text and drawings, tells a tale of human foibles, greed, and oil. It's book for people who are ready for some art and zany humor about our fossil fuel obsession. People who would turn off at the sniff of a serious discussion on any environmental issue will also get a kick out of this wild romp. It could make a great gift for the holidays!
