About Anne Can’t Stand It!

As I see it, in March 2020, every human being on the planet was whacked upside the head with the mother of all baseball bats, and we’ve been reeling ever since. The perpetrators of the crime have turned the world into one big looney bin, so healing from the injuries they inflicted has been far from easy.

From Day One of Two Weeks to Flatten the Curve, I smelled a rat. There was no doubt in my mind that a nefarious global agenda was unfolding, but just about no one I knew agreed with me. Friends, family and colleagues were dutifully masking up, locking down and looking forward to getting the jab that would release them from dystopian hell. Conversations were mine fields; heated words and stone cold silences were the norm.

Determined to find a way to communicate that didn’t involve locking horns and might open doors, I decided to create a cartoon feature and quietly put in out into the world. On September 1, 2021, after months of thoughtful gestation, Anne Can’t Stand It! was born.

As a professional cartoonist for almost four decades, I have lived my dream. Nothing pleases me more than expressing ideas in words and pictures that touch people in a meaningful way. I’ve created cartoons, greeting cards and illustrations for a wide range of clients including Recycled Paper Greetings, Lifetime Television, Reader’s Digest and a host of women’s magazines. For ten years, I was the Thursday cartoonist for Six Chix, a cartoon feature created by six women and published worldwide by King Features Syndicate.

With  Anne Can’t Stand It!, I’m rocking the boat more than I ever have before, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Self-annointed Holy Global Emperors are pulling out the stops to consolidate their wealth and power, divide and conquer us, and suck the joy out of our lives. Anne Can’t Stand It! is my way of saying I DO NOT CONSENT! I hope you won’t either.
