About the Author
Philip Chen has been an ocean research engineer, a trial lawyer, an investment banker, and an all around eclectic. At age sixty-three as he sat quietly following his cardiologist's strict instructions, he decided to get into cartooning with no formal training in art or cartooning. Since then his cartoons have entertained hundreds (perhaps thousands) on the various boards and forums that he has posted them. He was a regular contributor to the New York Times eNewspaper, The Local, and had one of his cartoons featured in the Metropolitan Section of the print edition. It would be nice to say that his cartoons are award winning, but he hasn't submitted any cartoons to any contests and, frankly, the Pulitzer people have been kept busy handing out prizes to others. He is also the author of a well-received thriller about mysterious objects found in the bottom of the ocean and what happens when they wake up and start sending signals to outer space.
