Life under the water: there is somebody intelligent there below
Jim Toomey

Jim Toomey

In the world of cartoons, animals walk and talk and act like humans. Jim Toomey, author of the daily comic strip "Sherman’ s Lagoon," provides a cartoonist’s perspective on animal intelligence and how in many ways it might be superior to our own. In particular, he talks about the ocean animals he features in his comic strip and what makes them interesting to him as a storyteller and artist.
