Go, Read: Team Cul De Sac's Chris Sparks Responds To News Of Robin Williams Having Parkinson's


Chris Sparks of Team Cul De Sac, the charitable effort to raise money for a cure for Parkinson's Disease based on the ongoing life and works of the illustrator/cartoonist Richard Thompson, has written a short post here about news that came out today that the late comedian Robin Williams was in the early stages of Parkinson's. He mentions that the organization has raised over $200K at this point, which is so very admirable.

While it's not tied into a charity and touches the ongoing discussion of mental health issues caused by Williams' suicide only in an oblique sense, this gallery of illustrators and cartoonists drawing Williams might be worth a peek if you're interested. That's Zack Soto's contribution above.
