“I started creating a cartoon character cast in 2006, and have been publishing ever since, especially for The Saturday Evening Post,” Lachowski says. We’re comfortable with Tim’s characters.

“My staunchest cartoon critics are my three adult children,” Tim says. “Sarah, 29, who is a chef, Eric, 25, who is an architect and Matt, 22, who is a lithographic artist and ceramicist.” There should be plenty of material there.
