I'm my own boss

...sometimes. After so much of my artwork over the years being assigned from various clients, I'm trying to get back to, essentially, giving myself the assignments - so I'll get to be the guy who tells me "I've got a great idea for a cartoon!" It's been too long. Here are a couple of early attempts from recent months. (See "Standoff" below for another, and note the sketch version of "BFFs" below from the "Monster Draw" last year.)

Why have a blog if you can't brag on it, right?

Lots going on, art-wise: The "Demented Detroit" cartoon show at Henry Ford Community College just came down tonight, but you can still see a few of my cartoons in the "Kapow" comics show at Eastern Michigan University, and (if you hurry) four of my drawings as part of the "12 On 12" group show at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn (below).


Metro Times got me to do some illustrations for this week's article urging out-of-towners to be respectful when they come to Detroit for Opening Day at the baseball stadium.


In the same issue, I've got another baseball themed drawing, this one for the latest Optik ad.


And last but not least (well, okay, it's also least) is, uh, this thing, now in the permanent collection of the Specs Howard School marketing department's coffee/storage room, for some reason...

Been meaning to draw this for a while. I don't know why...
