Not a Dream! Not an Imaginary Story!
January 25th, 2011
Congratulations to James Kochalka Superstar who has been named Cartoonist Laureate of the State of Vermont; the first time a cartoonist has held such a position.
[Correction: See Comment by Pat Race. It seems that Alaska beat Vermont to the punch.]
Anyone want to try to create such a position in one of the other 49? Imagine the competition in Oregon!

What about California? :”D
Oh, he doesn’t need that… He has grapefruit peel candy 😀
What about poet laureate? The man composed hockey monkey. Isn’t that what Vermont is known for?
Alaska has a cartoon laureate who was named in 2008, Chad Carpenter, the creator of Tundra.
Thanks for the correction, Pat. It seems James is #2!
I didn’t know that, Pat! Something we can aspire to!
