February 14th is fast approaching, so I thought I’d share this year’s crop of valentine cartoons! (Plus a few extras.) Enjoy!
‘Tis better to have paired and lost than never to have paired at all.
But his platonic friendship numbers are through the roof!
I have to say, I don’t love drawing cherubs. So drawing four of them in a meeting was not something I was looking forward to. Thankfully I really liked this joke.
Awww… I mean, oh… I mean, ewwww…
If I ever obtain an allergy to chocolate, you have my permission to pull the plug. But grab and pull it by the plug, not the cord, OK? That’s not safe.
I spent a lot of time look at closeups of spider faces for this cartoon. Take that, people who say I don’t suffer for my art!
OK, so that’s this year’s batch of valentine cartoons. Still not feeling the love? Well, here’s some…
I’ve had to read this aloud at a few presentations. It’s tricky and it takes a little pre-talk practice. So if you hear me doing it, I’m not crazy, I’m preparing.
This is probably one of the downright meanest valentine cartoons I’ve ever done. But it makes me snort when I laugh.
I’m more of a Marvel guy than DC. And that shirt was totally fun to draw.
I don’t normally do cartoons with more than one gag in them because I’m basically lazy. But every so often I dig into something like this one and it’s totally satisfying. (I’m particularly proud of Fudgy Epiphany!’)
That’s right. I took on Sweetest Day. Aw… yeah…
Still not enough? Well lucky for you I’ve got a bunch more Valentine’s Day Cartoons. You’re gonna love ’em! (Get it?! Get it?! Sigh… I’m sorry.)
Cat cartoons! People love cats, and they certainly provide cartoonists with plenty of cartoon fodder, so it’s no surprise that I’ve done my fair share of cat cartoons over the years. Here’s just a few of my favorites nicely organized into some creative categories for your browsing pleasure:
This cat has a lot to think about. I mean really. Soul searching time.
Anthropomorphic cats are simultaneously the easiest and hardest to draw.
This was a good two hours of drawing and a fair bit of Google Images research for a little tiny quiet joke. Totally worth it though.
Second row, far right is my favorite. He looks a little woozy.
How does the fish drink? Theories welcome.
Me too. Wait, hold on… Nope, on second thought…
It tested great with cats.
This joke makes me feel-ine happy. I just ruined it, didn’t I. My apologies.
OK joke, but love the photo in the background.
Seuss is SO hard to get right. Reader’s Digest bought this one later and I then had to color it like Seuss. Argh!
I bet it’s like yawning, They’re all going to do it in a second.
Thought about using the same art for both “Me” and “Ow,” but I’m an artist, damnit!
I hate drawing thought bubbles. They’re trickier than you think.
Still not satiated? Check out all my feline funnies! Then take a nap. You’ve earned it.
Adult coloring books seem to be all the rage as of late and I have to say, I’m not surprised; the act of coloring is incredibly calming. The problem is that pictures of enchanted forests and/or paisley cats aren’t really appropriate for the workplace (where you need the most calming). So I’ve taken one of my more popular business cartoons and put it up here for you to download:
Color it while you’re on hold. Color it while you’re waiting for that email reply. Or color it during that never-ending meeting. Enjoy the Zen, then hang it up by your desk or in the break room and wait for your co-workers’ kudos to roll in!
Don’t have any crayons around the office? That’s OK. Colored ballpoints and fluorescent highlighters will do just fine.
And if it turns out really great, drop me a line with a picture and I’ll post it here at the blog!
Halloween is coming soon, so here’s me drawing Frankenstein’s monster to get you in the mood. Don’t be scared, it’s just over 2 minutes long. Enjoy:
