How to reach Doctor Fun cartoonist David Farley

I'd like to ask cartoonist David Farley for permission to reprint one of his Doctor Fun cartoons. The FAQ says to request permission by email, but his listed address ( bounces. Can anyone tell me how to reach him? Thanks.

Yeah, he's at dgf1 AT midway DOT uchicago DOT edu, and his phone number's even online. (Not to be unkind, but you could've saved yourself a week's question with a quick Googling — this was the fourth result for "David Farley" "Doctor Fun".)

So it is, although my question pushed it down one. Here's hoping the information is up to date.

Mike, did you verify that the address is in fact reachable? That address stopped showing up on the actual cartoons in May 1995 (replaced by d hyphen farley at tezcat dot com). The address is what's on the last cartoon from 2006. Also, there's a note on the page you linked to that says "This artist is likely inactive on SITO. The last time they did anything here was 2000-06-16. If they have given an email address, it may be out-of-date and invalid."

Espertus, have you tried tracking him down through United Feature Syndicate? They started distributing Doctor Fun in '95 and may still have contact details.

It's astonishingly easy to confirm that he retains his day job and can be reached there.

FWIW, ibiblio outsourced its e-mail service recently (maybe a week or two ago?). Addresses _should_ still work as usual, but there's a slight chance he's having weird e-mail problems.

For the record, the email address provided by WCityMike works.
