Hot Springs, AR (PressExposure) July 24, 2007 -- CRAWFISH 101 RENDERED BY AL MARGOLIS OF THE
LONDONS TIMES CARTOON TEAM
Cartoonist Rick London, formerly of Hattiesburg, Ms (near New Orleans) announced today
that a percentage of sales of one of his cartoon classics âCrawfish 101â, which he said was
inspired by his love of New Orleans, will go toward the New Orleans Saints Katrina Relief
Fund. [http://www.saintsurricanfund.org] . London encourages others to donate to the fund (even if
they are not buying his cartoon merchandise.
âI think it is simply the American thing to do. We have suffered two major disasters in this
decade on our soil, 9/11 and Katrina (not to mention countless others, but these two impacted
the whole country in a terrible way. We now can take action to make things better; albeit a bit
late, but better late than never.â
London founded CAT (Cartoonists Against Terrorism) the night after 9/11 to raise funds
for the families of firefighters and police and cartoonists worldwide donated to the site.
London said, âAt my age (53), if I have any humor at all in me, it was received by osmosis
living near New Orleans. To try to explain that to the rest of the world would be ludicrous but
anyone who grew up in or near New Orleans knows exactly what I mean.
Growing up about a hundred miles from that great city, I remember on weekends, when
my parents would plan a family trip to the Big Easy, the whole family would laugh with
delight. We knew we would be in for a good time, and we were never let down.
âI lifeguarded at the Southern Yacht Club one college summer (SYC) which may have been
the best and most memorable summer of my life,â says London, now living in Hot Springs, Ar.
In fact, I chose Hot Springs as my home as it reminded me of a smaller version of New
Orleans. I have friends here, and maternal family that lived here in the past but are all
gone, and they felt the same way, a âMini-New Orleansâ.
â But we all feel, that no city in the world has the charm of New Orleans. It is such a special
hospitable place and the Londons Times Cartoon team feels obligated to do whatever little bit
we can (and will do).â
London founded Londons Times Cartoons http://www.londonstimes.us in 1997 which is now one of
the largest cartoon sites on the Internet. He recently launched Londons Times Tees at
[http://www.londonstimestees.com]. The actual Crawfish 101 cartoon products can be seen at
