Editorial Reviews

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. Another of his cartoons was featured as an official iReport on CNN. 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.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Happy Holidaze is a collection of cartoons, links, and commentary by Philip Chen. I downloaded the book free during a promotion. I read this book on my new Kindle Touch and was amazed that I could enjoy pictures as well as text. As someone who has tried drawing, I can appreciate the author's drawing skill. The cartoon subjects are zany and whimsical. The author documents the subjects with links to the articles that inspired his intellectual humor. It's not easy to choose a favorite cartoon. Among the contenders are The Modern Granny and Her Urban Walker,Mark I; Garlic Press; and the author's artistic commentary on the rapture, burglars, and the origin of the pot belly. This book is a first for me, so I do not know of another for comparison. However, I was reminded of James Thurber as I perused Philip Chen's visual poke in the ribs. If you've ever wondered what the world is coming to, Philip Chen explains it all.
