Uncle Carbunkle

September 11th, 2014

I made several attempts over the years to be a syndicated newspaper strip cartoonist. My last submission, in 1996, came closest to being picked up. Not that it ever got close. Click the pic if you’re curious to know more about it or just want to read the strips.

September 10th, 2014

I did some illustrations for MAD magazine issue #329. Just thought you’d like to know.

MAXIMUM Minimum Wage Pin-Up

September 10th, 2014

I was flattered to be asked by my friend and fellow cartoonist, Bob Fingerman, to contribute a pin-up for his massive must-have Maximum Minimum Wage Collection. It’s a beauty of a book, filled with great, funny writing and beautiful art. I hoped to give Bob a smile with my page by giving his MW cast the zombie apocalypse treatment. He loves zombies, I think.

 Here’s  a peek at my pin up:

The Infinite Corpse

September 10th, 2014

I meant to post this months and months ago. There’s this very cool, never-ending comic thing online. But I can’t explain it. It’s still there and it’s getting bigger. Go look. Maybe you can even contribute to it! Whatever it is!

You can check it out yourself here. Give yourself some time to get lost. It can be kinda mesmerizing!

Not The Highlight of My Career

May 10th, 2014

I was recently reminded of a job I sorta bungled a year or so ago. I’ll spare you all the gory details (contract problems) but here’s the result, a find-the-hidden-pictures puzzle loosely based on the Hall of Dinosaurs at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History that won’t see print. So, just for fun, can you find the tweezers, scissors, eyeglasses, teacup, pliers, spool of thread, plunger, comb, spatula, feather, slice of pie, cupcake, football, hockey stick, band-aid, apple core, ant, wishbone, crown, ice cream pop, party hat, leaf, golf club, chopsticks and a ruler?

An Untitled Story About an Apple Tree

April 26th, 2014

This story first appeared in the EXPO 2001 (SPX) anthology. It’s untitled but is about an apple tree. And apples. And a farmer. And worms. FYI: It’s maybe not safe for work depending on where you work. You decide. Enjoy!

My Ignatz-nominated mini-comic from 1999. Just FYI, it is probably not safe for work, minors, those easily annoyed or anyone really. Enjoy!

Cringe-Worthy!

March 19th, 2014

Here’s another thing I done did. It’s the cover art for an anthology of comics published by Birdcage Bottom Books! It should be out in time for SPX, whenever that is! Soon, I’ll bet!
