A regular feature in the Southern California newspaper Easy Reader and now syndicated nationwide, most of Keith Robinson's cartoons deal with that favorite of American dreams - life at the beach - with its surf bums, bikinied bodies, tourists, venomous volleyball, all-night parties, parking meter cops, and year-round tans. But life is not always sunny, so other cartoons portray a more serious business - how to make a living, California-style. Whether you live at the Beach or just want to visit - this book's for you. Cartoons include "Tan to Win!", "Surfing (Without Getting Your Feet Wet)", "Love At The Beach...Are You Ready For It?", and "Should You Take The Job?" (hint: probably not).

"With the inexhaustible curiosity of a sociologist, Keith Robinson has trained his microscope-like eye on a slice of life teeming with cultural bacteria. Weird notions bubble forth in his offbeat and meticulous cartoons." - Los Angeles TimesAbout the Author:
Keith Robinson is an award-winning cartoonist and writer whose work has appeared in Playboy, The Los Angeles Times, Cat Fancy, Dogs USA, and many other publications. Robinson treats the "Get a Job!" vs. "Get a Tan!" theme of his weekly comic strip "Making It" with first-hand experience: he was a middle manager in a high-tech company before chucking it all to spend more time on the shore of his hometown, Manhattan Beach, California. In addition to his "Making It" collections, Robinson is the illustrator of the popular books "Why Do Cats Do That?" and "Why Do Dogs Do That?"
