NEW! Print of one of my most popular webcomics

“The Great Exchange” is one of my most popular and widely shared webcomics. Several people have asked for prints so I decided to pull the trigger and get some made. I just picked them up from the printer and I’m very happy with how they turned out!

I’ll be selling them this weekend at MSP Comicon in St. Paul, MN. If you’re in the area stop on by and say “Hi!”. If you can’t make it, the prints are also available in my store.

Actual size: 8″w x 19″h (20cm x 48cm). Printed on 80lb stock. Matte finish with just a hint of gloss. Shipped in a sturdy cardboard tube.

If you’d like to frame it, I recommend this frame on Amazon.

I’ll Be At MSP Comicon 2018

Once again I’ll have a table at Minnesota’s great comic book fest, MSP Comicon. This year’s event will be in the grandstand at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, May 19-20, 2018 (10am-6pm Sat., 10am-5pm Sun.). It’s a fantastic show packed with artists, publishers and fans who love all things comics, and the people who put it on are top-notch. Minnesota nice at its finest!

I’ll be selling prints of my cartoons as well as copies of my new book Mostly Nonsense, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter and selected by the Kickstarter team as one of their “Projects We Love”. Stop on by and say “Hi!”

Good Friday

Today is Good Friday, the day we remember Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. It was a bad day for Him but a very good day for us!

In between client projects I do cartoons that I post as a webcomic called Sketchbook Silliness. Most are just dumb jokes but every once in a while I’ll try to draw something thoughtful, often relating to my Christian faith. Some of them wind up being my most popular and widely-shared cartoons. So, in honor of Good Friday/Easter I thought I’d share three of them.

Happy Easter!

One Million Views!

A few years ago I co-produced and co-animated a short little cartoon about Christianity for one of my clients, Living Waters. They let me know it just passed one million views on YouTube!

(I no longer do animation, choosing instead to specialize in illustration and cartooning, but I still think this is pretty cool.)

Also, because of the video’s message this is perfect timing for Easter. Go ahead and give it a watch.

Thoughts On Making Gag Cartoons

Another artist wrote to ask me for some tips on writing gags. While I feel like I still have a lot of room for growth in that area, that didn’t stop me from making a video with a few thoughts.

This is Part 1, where I share general thoughts about the importance of good writing. In Part 2 I share some tips and techniques for coming up with ideas. Part 2 is only available for Patreon backers.

Also, here are a couple books on writing comedy that have helped me, with Amazon Links.

It’s another way you can support my webcomic work):
