“If a person aspires towards a righteous life, their first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” — Albert Einstein
Peaco Todd, a syndicated cartoonist and author, has published numerous articles and co-authored/illustrated books on subjects ranging from anger management to football. A full gallery of her work can be found at Peacotoons
Most recently, Peaco illustrated Screwnomics: How Our Economy Works Against Women and Real Ways to Make Change. For more than thirty years, she was an assistant professor of liberal studies at Lesley University and the Union Institute and University. Peaco is thrilled that Earth Comix has found its role in partnering with organizations such as Canines for Africa to use cartoons and comics to raise awareness about the danger of extinction by poaching faced by iconic animals like elephants and rhinos.
One of her passions is travel — she has touched the bottom of the world on two continents: South America and Africa. She considers herself blessed with a life that has been filled with adventure, including a 6-month sojourn on the Dick Newick-designed yacht “Rogue Wave” on its journey from Spain to Dubai. In her spare time she has been known to run half-marathons, and each year is a “minor domo” in the annual Ig Nobelâ Award Ceremony. More examples of her work are posted at www.peacotoons.com.
