Cartoon 602


Cartoon 602 celebrates our efforts when showing up is the most we can muster, and recognizes that simply showing up is often the best thing to do!

All items are printed in Toronto, Canada on 100% FSC recycled paper, and shipped by Cathy Thorne. That’s me, I showed up and drew this cartoon!

Greeting cards are 4.25 x 5.5 inches (108 x 140 mm) and greeted on the inside with: Glad you showed up!

Prints are 8 x 10 inches (203 x 254 mm) and packaged with a thick backing to keep it nice and flat during shipping. They fit into standard frames, which are not included, but are readily available everywhere frames are sold. But they’re just as happy being taped or pinned to a wall. As long as they’re making people laugh, they’re not fussy about the way they’re displayed.

Mini prints are smaller versions of prints. They’re 4 x 5 inches (102 x 127 mm), a fun addition to any bulletin board, the perfect size for a gift tag, or a just-because pick-me-up for an everyday person who's showing up!.

Thanks for taking a look around my little shop, I hope you found a bit of relief from life’s everyday challenges, and a laugh or two.

If you have any questions, let me know, unless it's about how to get yourself to show up more, cause I don't know. I'm just doing the best I can too.

All the best to you and your efforts,

When can I expect my order to arrive?

I generally ship within a day or two of receiving an order. It's then in Canada Post's hands, and they say it will take this long: within Canada 2-7 days, the United States 4-9 days and everywhere else within 14 days.
Please note that if you live overseas from Canada and you've ordered more than one book, they can take 4 - 6 weeks. This is because the cost of shipping books by air is so high that they travel by sea instead.
