First of a set of four cartoons establishing a few significant changes I'm making to faithmouse. A new banner for the cartoon is in progress but not quite ready to post. You can view it here.
Chris and I arrived the night before the successful and well attended Blogs4Life conference via Midwest Airlines, which smoozes its customers with classical music, real Corinthian leather seats and warm chocolate chip cookies. Viva Midwest Airlines! Any additional Weight Watchers points accumulated from the cookies were heartily walked off the next day.
The Family Research Council building is only a few blocks away from the MCI center, and has a marvelous frieze above the doorway proclaiming Faith and Family. Inside, the good people of the FRC were kind enough to allow the use of a table to display cartoons and sign autographs, which got moved a time or two as I constantly managed to get in the way. The conference was full and began with a greeting from FRC fellow Charmaine Yoest before the playing of the infamous 'No lights, no sirens' Cristin Gilbert 911 tape.

Other speakers included workaholics Tim from Pro-Life Blogs and Peter from March Together, the latter who can be seen in the doctored photograph below sitting with the wonderful La Shawn Barber (s'kay; I have an artistic license).
Here's another image salvaged from a poor digital photograph which features Jonathan and Deborah Flora, the husband and wife team behind the A Distant Thunder partial-birth abortion DVD, for whom I designed a promotional image a few months back. I've photoshopped a bit of my original illustration onto the wall behind them.
Thanks to cartoon sponsor Elizabeth at Daily Inklings for linking to this post. More pics from the March and toon #2 of the current series tomorrow....
