  3. awwwwwww. I am a big Peanuts fan.
    Thanks so much.
    When I worked for Hallmark Cards many moons ago... for some reason I had to draw a Snoopy note card... their were other artist who did Peanuts work but for some reason I was to designing this note card with Snoopy on it.
    You always received instruction on any card you worked on with lots of do's and don't. I don't remember what I was told but I drew Snoopy on skates wearing a sweater with a star on it and there were wavy color lines following Snoopy. Hey it was the 60's what can I say.
    The art director just about had a heart attack. You never put Snoopy in clothes and skates ? ? ? For some reason, deadline I guess, he threw it in the packet going to Mr. Schulz.
    Art used to come back somewhat destroyed sometimes I heard if he didn't like what you did. Well my designed was approved. the note card was printed and it is one of the nicest memories I have of Hallmark and Peanuts.

    Happy Easter !

    cheers, parsnip

  4. I've been a Peanuts fan since childhood. When I was a kid my two heroes were Charles M. Schulz and Jerry Lewis. Well, as time has passed, my enthusiasm for Mr Lewis has waned considerably, but Charles Schulz is still among my heroes. If Schulz even looked at something I drew (I am a three-time published cartoonist, in publications that unfortunately have since gone belly up) I would be in total ecstasy. And that's just if he looked at it. If he APPROVED it, man, that would put me beyond the mundane confines of reality into a euphorically transcendent state of being. You are indeed a lucky woman. No, not lucky, consider yourself blessed.
