Saturday Morning Muse – Asterix

In the French speaking parts of the world, Asterix le Gaulois comics are a force. Like our Mickey Mouse, the little cartoon character has inspired toys, games, food-snacks, movies and a theme park. The French even named their first satellite “Asterix.”

Refrigerator doors are the cartoonists’ art gallery.

To have something you created hanging in such a central and well-used part of any home, next to all the kids’ drawings, post cards from far-off places, favorite goofy photos and grocery lists is truly an honor. When you stop to think about it, most of us reserve our ‘fridge doors for things that are very personal and very dear to us. Knowing someone took the time to clip a cartoon I drew because it struck a chord in them, and then gave it some precious door space… well, forget the Louvre.
