“...captures the beauty, nuance, and complexity of the father-son relationship.”
—Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, author of Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay
When his mother was diagnosed with MS, Brian Frazer lost both his parents to the demands of the disease. His father, Sam, was his mother’s sole caretaker for forty years, unavailable to his children or his art. After his mother died, Brian had the opportunity to reconnect with Sam. But how could he reestablish the relationship? The answer was in a doodle.
One day—on a whim—he suggested his father draw a cartoon that Brian had written. The old spark returned to Sam’s eyes. With every cartoon, Sam came back to life, and so did Brian’s connection with his dad.
Brian Frazer is an author, stand up comedian, and self-proclaimed neurotic. Cartoons With My Dad chronicles Brian’s quest to find his relationship with his father, and in the process, find himself.
