 A Londons Times tribute cartoon we did in

honor of Robin Williams in 2003 


It was the fall of 1981.  I was living in the Grammercy Park and later Astoria, Queens area of NYC in search of myself on the stand-up comedy stages of NYC.   I was terribleRead full post »

 I love when people ask me how cartoons “come to you”. 

I’m not sure there is a particular way, but I’ve noticed the more I’m in the forest, the quieter it is, the more the birds are singing and chipmunks clicking (their click warning), the more I tendRead full post »

I love dogs; and I've gotten pretty good over the years with animal care, animal welfare, etc. Animals tend to like me and vice-versa. 

I also like to make money, though I doubt I’ll ever be a zillionaire. I have too much of a writer/artist’s heart (whateRead full post »

I was up pretty early this morning because I knew Lee was making challah and I needed to go to the grocery as the cupboard was pretty slim pickins.  I wanted to get back early to get some work done (aka scattered creativity).  So I pushed myselfRead full post »

"….And please remember to set your watches forward one hour."  One hour?  I just fast-forwarded my life 17 years.  And where did those years go?  Londons Times Cartoons is seventeen.

I’ve seen the film “The Cove” and I’ve seen the film “Blackfish” and both were top-notch productions.  What I haven’t seen is anything more than petitions from (we, the people), afterwards,  which haven’t seemed to do much; and I realize I cou… Read full post »

 Dr. Herman Roarshach's Dog Spot...The story behind the cartoon by Rick London.  

Everyone who has known me awhile; or even for a few seconds, knows “I’m a dog man”.  Don’t get me wrong, I love all animals and I imagine in my life I&rsqRead full post »

I’ve always been a bit of an adventurer with a good memory. And I tend to create memories in coordination with important music. For instance I remember I was in 3rd grade when the Beatles were first on Ed Sullivan.

When someone shows me something/or someone new, especially in the arts, the first thing that goes through my mind is a line is a classic Clapton tune, “Don’t show me anything new….I’ve seen it all before”.  And admittedly, I spend a good amount of time in that jadeRead full post »

I can’t count how many times the topic of conversation has turned to “Big Pharma”.  Often people ask me my thoughts about Big Pharma (or the drug manufacturing business).

Every once in awhile, when my beloved wife, Lee sees me staring into space and tapping my foot against my desk, she chirpily asks, “Why don’t you write a blog”.

Film Review "GMO OMG" by Rick London

    "OMG GMO" was the second film I watched at this year's Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.

"Good Ol' Freda" which was launched as a campaign, was eventually taken into development and finally production with Tripod Media for the past several years.  It is the true story of Beatles secretary Freda Kelly, including her own narrative of The Beatles (as humans) and their fRead full post »

    When I listened to the title track “Japonesque” of Japanese artist Sienna (living in Norway), I felt, “I know this musician, or at least I’ve heard her mesmerizing work.  But I couldn’t place her so I kept listening to a genre of work that could not beRead full post »

As an older baby boomer, I just made it to the tail end of good what I call electronica as an umbrella “catch-all” of any songs that can be made using devices such as Thermin, a sound synthesizer and even a computer.  When I hear new "genre mix" music that isRead full post »

Lately, it seems publishers have been asking me for articles and/or cartoons that deal with aging.  I scratch my head and have a “why” look on my face; then remember, I’m one of those who begs for my senior discount wherever I go. Suddenly I got old!  Read full post »

       It was a very good day today.  Most of my days are very good.   For the younger crowd, you might have called your psychiatrist to make certain your Prozac prescription was renewed for the next 250 years, but for me, it was ideal.
