Fast on the Draw – Office Cartoon

This office cartoon shows one of my favorite writing techniques: taking two or more similar idioms and combining them. The math is just a bonus.

Captain America & Iron Man Stuff to Whet Your Civil War Appetite

Captain America: Civil War is still a week away and if you’re like me you can barely contain your excitement!

So, to help wile away the hours until then, here’s some stuff to peruse. Enjoy!

Superhero Squad Cards

When the boy was little he had all these cute little Marvel action figures that he just loved. Apparently they were really popular because they also spawned a TV show, a video game, and a set of trading cards. Here’s a sampling:

1975 Topps Sticker Cards

You have to love that 70’s Marvel sense of goofiness, and these Topps stickers embody that nicely. Here’s a sampling:

1978 Marvel Card Game

Here’s some more 70’s Marvel in the form of a card game, and there’s a ton of Civil War characters. Here’s a sampling:

Captain America Coloring Book

I also love old coloring books, and this Captain America one is a hoot. Check it out:


There’s mighty punching…


Furious fighting…


And whatever this is…

 Marvel Superheroes Coloring Book

Last but not least is a really, and I mean really weird coloring book starring the Avengers:




Yeah, you’re gonna want to download this one. If for no other reason thatn to help Hulk with the problem in his pants. I’m not kidding.

OK, hopefully that’ll keep you occupied until Civil War comes out. Enjoy!!





Meet My Assistant


It’s been a little while since I’ve been featured in Reader’s Digest, so I’m really happy to share that I’m in the May issue. Here’s the cartoon:


It’s a gag I like, and I’m happy with the line art, but what I really love is the color on this, and I can say that without sounding like a jerk because I didn’t do it.

For about two years now I’ve been working with a terrific artist named Rick Hughes and he handles all my shading and coloring. I’m a competent colorist, but Rick’s work is of a much higher caliber (I mean look at that above!) and I’m super lucky to have found him.

So, if you’re looking for someone to help you shade, color, or otherwise help out with any art duties, , OK? He’s a good guy, he’s never missed a deadline, and his work speaks for itself.



Fast on the Draw – Angel Cartoon

This angel cartoon actually went very quickly, so the Fast on the Draw video is only sped up 374%. Divine guidance? You be the judge.
