I got off to a bit of a false start a few weeks ago...saying I was back to posting cartoons on a regular basis. Side tracked with some other things recently, I've fallen behind once again.
With the holidays coming up and no new finalized material ready, I've resorted to posting a cartoon that I included with the booklet I sold a while back. It was one of the "never before seen" for the those that own it and have already seen this, my apologies. For those that didn't order a copy, hope you like it. I'll get back to work soon...really.
Happy holidays! :)

Hey everyone, I'm back! Hello? Anyone still there? My apologies for taking so long to update this blog.
Once the weather started to get nice, I couldn't stand the thought of being indoors, sitting at a computer as the sun beckoned outside.
But now that it's slowly starting to get cold and rainy again, I'm sure I'll have more time to devote to cartooning.
I can't make any guarantees on how frequently I'll be updating this site, but hopefully it won't be more than a month between posts.
Now to some background behind this cartoon. I went to visit Seattle a few weeks ago and decided to check out their downtown library. It's actually a cool place...very modern and organized. I did embellish a couple of things in this cartoon, so it's not 100% true, but pretty close to the real thing. I guess I'm just trying to show what little charisma I have...
Hope everyone had a great summer and thanks to my die hard fans for encouraging me to get back to work! :)

Yep ladies and gentlemen, it's about that time of year again...time for a little break from cartooning and being anchored to a computer. I'll be taking a few months off to get outside and soak up some UV rays, work on photography, get some ideas for the next round of cartoons, and just try to enjoy the summer.
I'm not sure if I'll be printing another collection of cartoons this time around. There weren't as many this season as the last, so maybe it's better to wait until I have enough to make it all worthwhile.
In the meantime, hang tight and I'll be back soon. Thanks for your support!

Once again, I'm a little late on posting a new cartoon. I think it has something to do with the warmer weather we've been having and being at the Oregon coast for the weekend.
The idea behind this post started with a suggestion from R.K. It was slightly different at the beginning, but after a couple of little tweaks, this is the end result.
I call it "The Loquacious Patron."

Truthfully, I don't watch any of the CSI shows on TV, but after getting an idea from one of my co-workers, N.B., I thought it would be fun to take the classic detective scenario and put it in a library. This might have the potential for later episodes...stay tuned!

I've fallen behind schedule with my usual posting because I didn't have a cartoon ready for this past Sunday (sorry!). I finally finished what I've been working on and was going to wait a couple more days, but decided to hurry things along and just get it online.
This "page-centric" cartoon and idea came from one of my top contributors, R.K., but I altered it somewhat. Originally it called for a different end result and arrows pointing to all the different changes that had taken place through the course of evolution, but I didn't have enough room (even with this wider than usual panel!) and had trouble ending on a convincing note. After staring at the computer monitor for what seemed like hours and nearly giving up, for some reason my brain came up with (had to do a little Google search to find the name) the Martian Popping Thing™...??!!!

I'm not sure what prompted this week's cartoon. I guess it's some kind of deep seated fear of being embarrassed in front of a large group of people, or children in this case...something that probably goes back to my own childhood and fear of public speaking.
At my library we have what's called Story Stop and although I have nothing against reading and singing to kids, I don't think I'll be participating anytime soon. I'll leave that to the professionals. :)
