These doodles show artists--some well-known, others more obscure--being relaxed and goofy...a testament to family ties and friendship. -- Newsday, Dec 11, 2005

Today, when illustrating a communication...is adding smiley-face emoticons to instant messages...this arrives like a letter from long-lost friend. -- Wall Street Journal, 1/21/2006
