Still Time for Studio Store Holiday Gifts…

December 15th, 2017 | Posted in News

… but it’s running out. All orders placed by Sunday ship Monday, and I’ll try to keep up with shipping as the week progresses, but shipping times get dicey the week before the holidays. On the workshop front, I’ll have some news next week about more upcoming locations and dates, but right now I have only ONE SPOT remaining in the Toronto and Dallas workshops, and only TWO SPOTS left for the London workshop. So don’t wait any longer if you are thinking about going, or want to get a spot for someone for a Christmas gift. READ MORE

Z-People Sneak Peek

December 8th, 2017 | Posted in News

I guess I should have held off with the Deadline Demon this morning. Sitcomics just released a look at proofs of a couple of pages from their upcoming “Z-People” comic written by Darin Henry, pencils and inks by me, colors by Glenn Whitmore and letters by Marshall Dillon. Here they are! The book will be released next month. Check out the Sitcomics page for more details. READ MORE

A Worthy Kickstarter

December 5th, 2017 | Posted in News

As a rule I do not promote crowd sourcing projects just because 1) there are way too many of them 2) if I promote one I get inundated with requests to promote others, and that’s not what this blog is about. I stopped promoting Kickstarters about 5 years ago. That said, I’m breaking my own rule and promoting a Kickstarter project from my pal and fellow Minnesota cartoonist/illustrator Cedric Hohnstadt. It’s for a book called “Mostly Nonsense”, and is a collection of gag cartoons he has done via his web comic site Sketchbook Silliness. The book contains over 100 cartoons ranging from clever to silly… READ MORE

Order Your Studio Store Gifts ASAP!

December 5th, 2017 | Posted in News

Just a FYI to all those who are thinking about ordering one of my limited edition prints, signed books, sketches or original art as a gift for someone this holiday season: I’ll be out of town from Dec 9-16th and unable to ship anything out during that time. Anything ordered before Dec 9th will be shipped out prior to my leaving, and anything on or after Dec 9th won’t go out until Mon Dec 18th. That’s cutting it close with the USPS’s usual holiday shipping chaos. So, if you want something from the Studio Store, I’d get the order in by Friday.   READ MORE

Keep Up With Our Mailing List!

November 25th, 2017 | Posted in News

It seems like right after I do a workshop somewhere and post a wrap up about it, I get a bunch of people emailing me or commenting that they didn’t know it was happening and they wished they would have so they could have participated. I am not sure how to fix that, since I announce them as they get booked here and across all my social media accounts, periodically do a “still available” post if they have not sold out, and have a big banner on the right of my blogroll that links to the workshop page. I don’t know what else to do… READ MORE

Glenn sharing his great ISCA illustration of the MAD guest speakers in 2009: L to R: Me, Mark Fredrickson, Glenn, Sam Viviano, Hermann Mejia Two years ago this New Years Day, a talented, kind, and hard working caricaturist artist named Glenn Ferguson was attacked by a disgruntled co-worker named Freddie Torres, and brutally stabbed in the head with a pair of scissors at their workplace in Universal Studios Orlando.

Illustrated U.S. Presidents Book

October 26th, 2017 | Posted in News

The publishing house Papersalt creates “gifts to inspire, empower and educate kids and families”. They just released a kid’s book called The Presidents with interesting facts about each of the 45 Presidents of the United States, illustrated with caricatures by yours truly. You might think you recognize these caricatures as color versions of the ones featured on my no-longer-available president’s poster… and you’d be right! Papersalt bought the rights to these images for this book, and had me color them for the project. Here are some sample pages: The book is 48 pages,  8.5″ x 5.5″ wire-o book on heavy-weight uncoated cover stock. If interested… READ MORE
