Official Souvineer Cartoon & Coloring Book of the Central Coast by Pulitzer Prize Nominee, Joe King
"This is an outsiders view from the inside of life and living on California's Central Coast. It gives you a real sense of what you will find and what to expect when you are fortunate enough to live in or visit this charming and beautiful area of the Golden State. It's silly, honest, informative, irreverent and Joe does a great job of poking fun at every conceivable situation, least of all himself. You will see yourself as one or more of the characters enjoying the sites - Just be warned that reading this book will make you wish you were there!"
"The cartoons reveal the ambiance of the area, adding credibility to his other local cartoons. They prove he is an insider... having street cred adds import addressing local concerns... and quality of life.
"Future generations will finally recognize his moustachioed genius..."
"Joe is a national treasure! I'm a marketing expert and cite Joe King as a great example of a very clever artistic person who understands well how to put together the marketing puzzle pieces so he can earn a living solely as a creator of joy and insight. Cartoonist Joe King's indie books are part of his overall positioning (branding) as an illustrator, cartoonist, book designer and marketing producer. His syndicated cartoon strip is published in California newspapers, his caricatures are treasured artwork..."

About the Author
In the early '80s Joe parlayed his position as one of the original Blue Sky Rangers, [Mattel Electronics videogame designers] into a Department of Defense [D.O.D.] software engineer, enjoying a TOP SECRET security clearance at Lockheed's fabled Rye Canyon facility [Skunk Works], original nest for the SR-71 Blackbird fleet.
Today he suffers the slings and arrows of outrageous mis-fortune - frequently at the hands of other cartoonists!
The 2004 Pulitzer Prize Nominee most recently served as Artist-In-Residence at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and is currently in production of several self-syndicated comic strips distributed world-wide under the banner of his publishing forge: www.FUNNYPAPERZ.com; a whimsical fusion of fine art, popular culture and humorous illustrations. Joe King, a native Californian - born in the shadow of The Lone Ranger Rock - is making the world a funnier place one cartoon at a time.
