Isabella Bannerman is the Monday cartoonist for the syndicated Six Chix strip. Her off-beat humor is a great treat.
There will be an exhibit of Isabella's work at the Station Cafe in Hastings on Hudson on April 25th. You can catch her Mondays in any one of hundreds of newspapers, or anytime on the internet.
