Since debuting in the SF Weekly nearly 25 years ago, Tom Tomorrow's satirical cartoon strip This Modern World has skewered the politically powerful and the gullible masses with colorful art and deadpan humor.

Beloved by liberals, held in contempt by conservatives, Tomorrow is the pen name for editorial cartoonist Dan Perkins, whose work appears across the country week after week, delivering big laughs over serious issues.

This week, Tom Tomorrow, 2013 winner of the esteemed Herblock Prize for editorial cartooning, speaks at the Charles M Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa. As part of the museum's ongoing Second Saturday Cartoonist series, Tomorrow will present a talk, meet with guests and sign books. Focusing primarily on This Modern World, which he has self-syndicated since 1988 (and currently running in the Bohemian), Tomorrow will discuss and demonstrate the signature style of clip art aesthetics and retro '50s charm he employs to belie an assaulting wit.
