Former New Orleans Area Cartoonist To Benefit Katrina With "Crawfish 101" Classic Cartoon Products

Hot Springs, AR (PressExposure) July 24, 2007 -- CRAWFISH 101 RENDERED BY AL MARGOLIS OF THE


Cartoonist Rick London, formerly of Hattiesburg, Ms (near New Orleans) announced today

that a percentage of sales of one of his cartoon classics “Crawfish 101”, which he said was

inspired by his love of New Orleans, will go toward the New Orleans Saints Katrina Relief

Fund. [] . London encourages others to donate to the fund (even if

they are not buying his cartoon merchandise.

“I 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.”

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, “At 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.

“I lifeguarded at the Southern Yacht Club one college summer (SYC) which may have been

the best and most memorable summer of my life,” 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 “Mini-New Orleans”.

“ 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).”

London founded Londons Times Cartoons in 1997 which is now one of

the largest cartoon sites on the Internet. He recently launched Londons Times Tees at
