It’s pretty clear at this point that I won’t be quitting my day job to do this full time, so feel free to post/share any of these anywhere on social media or print them off & hang them up around the office. But if you want to use one for a tee-shirt or some kind of merch- at least ask me first & send me one. Thanks.

“I actually find a lot of parallels in jazz and cartooning.”
~Gary Larson

I wanted to be a cartoonist since I was in fifth grade. My best friend and I were constandly making up our own super heroes. In junior high I studied everything I could find about newspaper comic strips and magazine panel cartoons. In high school my dream was to become a political cartoonist for a major newspaper. Alas, this was about as unlikely as bececoming a huge rock star, movie star or pro athlete.

For a brief while, my cartoons were published in a regional weekly newspaper. I still occasionally cartoon and I teach students that cartooning is a terrific way of thinking on paper, useful for journaling, note taking and communicating. It’s more developed than doodling but much more streamline and quick than full-blown (realistic) drawing.
