    Mr Beattie,

    I like your cartoons very much. 2 of them are some of my favourite cartoons of all time:

    “Being tied up doesn’t bother me _nearly_ as much as this apple they just put in my mouth.”, and

    “Listen, Intelligent life! If we leave a message after the beep, they’ll call back soon!”

    I am wondering, where I can buy your cartoons, either in print or electronic files?

    thank you,
