Cartoonists Remember "Peanuts" Creator
Charles M. Schulz With a Special Day of Tribute Cartoons
On May 27,2000, nearly 100 syndicated cartoonists created special Peanuts-themed comics as a lasting memorial to Charles M. Schulz, creator of the enduring and beloved strip. "I thought this would be a fun way for cartoonists to personally honor and thank Sparky," says Mike Luckovich, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Atlanta Constitution who organized the tribute event with the National Cartoonists Society. "This tribute is a celebration of his life." Schulz's talent and creativity earned him numerous awards throughout his 50-year career, yet to his fellow cartoonists, Sparky's professional honors were secondary to his dedication to his craft and the encouragement and inspiration he offered to others. Schulz's importance is illustrated in the many and varied styles of the cartoonists whose lives he touched and who continue his legacy.
Below are several of the tribute strips first published May 27,2000. To find out more about Charles Schulz click here: http://www.flyingace.net
