'The Day The Music Died'

R.I.P. Charles Schulz (Feb. 12th, 2000)

Faber-Castell India Ink Pens
 
(air-brushing / colors thru computer)


I did this political cartoon (15 years ago) to note
the passing of one of the world's greatest cartoonists
Charles Schulz:  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_…

The relationship between Lucy & her beloved Schroeder, 
with his toy piano (& ever-present bust of Beethoven)
was the inspiration for this cartoon tribute to Schulz.

It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since Schulz passed away.
His daily newspaper cartoon strip "Peanuts"
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peanuts
introduced us to a beloved gang of lil' children (& pets!)
which included Linus, Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Sally, Schroeder,
the indomitable Charlie Brown and his pet beagle Snoopy!
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peanuts#…

I grew up reading "Peanuts", and Schulz inspired
me to draw cartoons.  I laughed at so many of the
adventures of Snoopy, Charlie Brown and his friends.
Whether it's Lucy telling off Violet (3rd one down)

Charlie Brown's infatuation for the little red-haired girl:

or Snoopy's ability to fly as a "whirlydog"

the "Peanuts" cartoon strip provided decades of laughs.

A small example of some great "Peanuts" cartoons:

Moi aussi, Warren!  Thank you so much for sharing!  :)
*since he drew "Peanuts" for almost 50 years, many generations grew up
reading his wonderful cartoons (I read them as a kid in the 60's & 70's)*

Same here. I loved Peanuts, especially the older strips from the 1960's, as they were all at once funny, thoughtful, and insightful. One of my all-time favourites is this one:

Helps to keep one grounded.
