5 Year Anniversary!

Five years ago today, I got married to a wonderful woman, and everything's been uphill ever since. In honor of our wedding anniversary, I thought I'd share the thank-you card image I designed to send to our wedding guests back in 2006. It depicts me and Terra riding off into the future in the antique car that her dad drove her to the ceremony in, piled high with wedding gifts. This cartoon captures the joy and love we felt that day, which has only grown stronger with time. I am presenting it here today as a little "thank you" to Terra for the last five amazing years. I love you!

Super Kids!

I recently created a pair of mini-posters for a couple of kiddos in honor of their birthdays. There was Mairin, who was turning 4, and Eamon, who was turning 3. I was told that Mairin was interested in superheroes like Wonder Woman, but of course she was also into Disney princesses like Rapunzel from "Tangled". On top of that, Mairin is a tomboy who likes to be athletic, so I combined all the elements into a hybrid princess/superhero, that apparently she said looked "awesome". For Eamon, his big interest of the moment in the Pixar "Cars" movies, so I figured I would just keep it simple and go with that theme. It was a fun little project, and I hope the kids enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed making them!

Just Add Ink: Camp Cookin'!

This summer, the Altered Esthetics gallery and the Cartoonist Conspiracy collaborated to create Just Add Ink: A Comic Cookbook. Along with dozens of other cartoonists, I submitted a food-related comic piece for inclusion in the cookbook. My story involves my Camp Roadkill character Hubert the pig and his attempts to show a simple recipe to a bunch of unruly young campers. Copies of the book are still available through Altered Esthetics, either in a printed or a digital form. It turned out to be a fantastic publication and I was thrilled to be a part of it.
