July 19th, 2017 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

I’m in San Diego setting up for Comic Con, which starts TONIGHT! I have no time or scanners available to do a SotW. So, here’s a sneak peek at a couple of the rough penciled pages for the 47 page story I’m pencilling and inking for the company Sitcomics.

Sunday Mailbag- Sued by Celebrity?

July 16th, 2017 | Posted in Mailbag

Q: Have you ever been sued or coerced to remove your caricature drawings from your books or blog because the subject did not like his/her drawing to be publicly displayed even if it was not a commissioned work? How did you deal with it? A: I’ve never been sued but once I (or rather one of the artists who was drawing at my booth at the Mall of America) was told by a celebrity to remove his caricature from the display at one of my booths.
