    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.

    Thanks for your wonderful cartoons. I have given you a shout out today on Conserve School’s Facebook page:

    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,

      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!

      I’ve since done a better version of the poem and have a larger copy that may work better for the text book. It will also be in my book of poetry for children (coming out this Spring/Summer). Send me your email and I’ll email you the better version. All I’d ask for is a credit line highlighting the upcoming book.
