I’ve been a little light on Peanuts book news lately – there’s some things coming in the mail, but folks aren’t making a lot of new announcements during the holiday season. (Plus, things get hectic here around this time.)

But making me happy at the moment is an invite I got to a Christmas party for a group of comics-makers that I belong to, which included the piece of art you see here, where cartoonist Aidan Casserly has drawn some of the club members into a classic scene. That’s Aidan himself at top doing the Shermy; some folks here whose work you might recognize are Bill Morrison taking Pig-Pen’s place on the bass (he’s been a key man at the Simpsons comic book line, and the Disneyheads in my audience may be familiar with the notorious Little Mermaid VHS box he drew), and down there on guitar is a beaglefied version of Sergio Aragones, familiar to half a century of Mad Magazine readers as the guy who does those little cartoons along the edges of other things (and, of course, so much more!) And dead center is yours truly, the AAUGH Blogger doing the Violet dance. It is an honor.
