15+ Artists Help "Big Top" Creator Rob Harrell

CBS Evening News aired today a report about "Big Top" cartoonist Rob Harrell, and how 15 fellow Universal Press Syndicate artists (including Jim Davis of Garfield fame) stepped in to guest-draw when he had to be hospitalized for eye cancer.

The report can be seen online now as "Comic Relief".

I enjoyed watching the segment - I think it's really great that cartoonists can band together for a common cause to help their fellow 'toonist out. This event reminded me of last year's Hurricane Katrina fund raiser by Blank Label. The webcomic community pulled together for Hurricane Katrina and raised tons of money for the American Red Cross. Just imagine what it could be like if webcartoonists could pull together for other important causes like this several times a year?
