The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA), the Positive Six Campaign (DBSA +6)
I’m happy to report that I have a cartoon in the the JULY Positive Six Campaign, this month’s goal is:
The Challenge: ‘Don’t Sweat It’
“Feeling the heat inside and out this summer? Enhance your cool and calm—try breathing exercises, yoga, meditation, or practicing mindfulness to relieve stress. Chill out by setting aside 30 minutes each day to do nothing but unwind.”

The following poem about fathers was attributed to Eppie Lederer, better known as “Ann Landers,” one of America’s most reliable and trusted sources of advice for decades as a newspaper columnist. Can you imagine what she could do with social media today??!
Back in the 80′s, I used to have a print out that was similar to this poem that I had taped to my wall for years. The gist was when I was younger Dad meant everything, as I got older, I thought less of my father’s wisdom and more of my own. Of course, at 17 I thought I knew everything and I was becoming my own man. As I grew older and became a Dad, I realized how wise my own Dad really was, and wished he was around to talked with.
Any way thought I would share the poem, since I am a #1 Dad…I’m sure it’s part of the responsibility written in the number one Father rule book somewhere.
I tried my best to reach the goal of drawing 31 heroes this month. In the end, the count stands at 20 that is including the 4 below that I rushed drawing with only a marker…As you can see, I still am miles away from pro status…I do my best drawing caricatures out with a pencil first, then inking the lines.
While I did not make the goal for drawing everyone, my girls did not miss a hero picked this year! I will be posting their drawings very soon. I have been drawing/working at this for 48 hours straight. I am very happy with what we were able to do with the time we had! If I did not draw you, fear not, one of two things will happen. One: you will be added to next year’s 2015 Heroes and will be getting a full color caricature or two: over the next few months, I will work you as a character into one of my cartoons and we can have some fun that way.
As I call the 2014 Cartoon-a-thon for Mental Health Heroes to an end…I just want to THANK Everyone who came to my aid and helped me out to put it to- gether so quickly!
The cartoons below are not my best work and are more scribbles than art… so, I won’t add names to them.
Sorry If You were one of the Heroes I was unable to get to this time, sooner or later You will be drawn during this annual Mental Health Hero event.:)
