In 1994, McDonnell created the award-winning comic strip Mutts, which now appears in more than 700 newspapers in 20 countries and has been anthologized in books all over the world. It was described by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz as "one of the best comic strips of all time." A coffee table book of his life and work, Mutts: The Comic Art of Patrick McDonnell, was published in 2003. In 2005, McDonnell wrote his first children's book, The Gift of Nothing, which was a New York Times best seller. The Best of Mutts, a ten year celebration of the strip introduced by acclaimed novelist Alice Sebold (Lovely Bones) was published in 2007. 
His sixth children's book, WAG, a tale of wiggling and waggling, fwipping and fwapping, and GUARDIANS of BEING, a collaboration with Oprah endorsed spiritual teacher Eckart Tolle, were just released this fall. All of his books are printed on recycled paper. He is involved with many animal and environmental charities, and is a member of the Board of Directors for both The Humane Society of the United States and the Fund for Animals. Join Patrick as he sketches Earl, Mooch, and a handful of sidekicks--Shtinky Puddin', Sourpuss, Guard Dog, and Crabby--on a giant architect's pad, chronicling their creation and answering questions as he draws. Books on sale at the event. Signed books make great holiday gifts! (Patrick also doodles characters around his signature.) FREE! For more about Patrick, click HERE.
