Hey Joe…just wanted to let you know I really enjoy your cartoons. Keep it up.
LOve your work! Smart & funny keep it up!
Are any of your environmentally-themed cartoons (for adults) covered under a creative commons license? I would like to mount a couple of your cartoons (with proper attribution) at an alternative energy website.
Go right ahead, Patricia. Just give the proper attributes (like u said) and send me a link when they go up.
Thanks for your wonderful cartoons. I have given you a shout out today on Conserve School’s Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/ConserveSchool.
I saw your work included in a presentation by Michelle Bouchard, the president of HealthCorps, at the 1st Annual Green Schools Conference in Minneapolis today and I was glad that I was able to find more of your work online.
Thanks again for providing some educational chuckles,
Head of School, Conserve School
Thanks for seeking me out Stefan! As a former special education and 3rd grade teacher (10 years) and a lifelong environmentalist (35 years) I am happy to be a part of Michelle’s presentation.
I looked up your school as well–it looks terrific. I went to college at Winona State and spent many summers in 3 Lakes WI at a friend’s summer home–beautiful country!
Keep up the great work, Stefan!
