My new collection of cat cartoons, Being Awesome Is Exhausting, is now available!
I had the pleasure to be interviewed by the cat website, The Purrington Post, about my cat cartoons. Thanks, Purrington Post!
HappilyEveRose did this amazing fingernail design based on one of my Valentine's cartoons. I can't imagine the amount of work that must've gone into this. Really well done!
This was my favorite Christmas cartoon I did this year. It was fun to draw.
Michelle Profis at Country Living Magazine wrote a very nice piece about my holiday cartoons. Thanks, Michelle!
I was recently interviewed for an article for the Marin IJ. As you can see, my cat Hannah did a pretty awesome photobomb. At one point during the photo session, she was rubbing up against my drawing pad (not at all unusual). In the end, they went with the cat action shot.
You can read the article here. Thanks to Vicki Larson (Lifestyles Editor), Adam Kreitzman (reporter), and Frankie Frost (photographer).
I have a new store where you can get cartoons on greeting cards and coffee mugs. And shipping is free! Check it out! Did I mention shipping is FREE?
On July 4, one of my high school classmates, Melina Thornhill, passed away. She drowned in a lake in Tennessee. She was 44 years old.
Although Melina and I weren’t close friends, we grew up together and she was always friendly to me. When I saw her at our class reunions, I enjoyed catching up with her. She exuded warmth, enthusiasm, and kindness. Melina also had a great sense of humor. She followed my page on Facebook and would often share or comment on the cartoons she liked. I appreciated her support.
After I heard the news of Melina’s passing, I decided to draw a cartoon as a tribute to her. Here it is. Melina is behind the cat—and if you look closely, you can see her name on Saint Peter’s list.
I’d like to think that Melina, as a cat person, would’ve liked this cartoon. I hope so.
My heart goes out to the Thornhill family. Rest in peace, Melina. You were a great person and will be missed by many.
I drew this cartoon recently, which is a spoof on the show “My Cat from Hell.” After I posted it online, my wife saw it and said, “I like it but it would be funnier if the cat looked more like Jackson Galaxy. He needs tattoos and earrings.”
Whenever my wife makes a suggestion about improving the art in a cartoon, she is right and this time was no exception.
“Yeah, that would make it better,” I said. "I think I'll change it."
Later that day, I saw several comments saying what my wife said: “This cat needs some tats,” “It would be better if the cat looked like Jackson,” “Where are the tattoos on cat Jackson?!” But overall, people liked the cartoon and thought it was funny, which is all that really matters to me. Still, I wanted to add some tats and jewelry on the cat. So I did.
Yesterday, I was happy to see that Jackson Galaxy shared the cartoon on his Facebook page. I think he would’ve liked this new-and-improved version below better. I just wish I had done it this way the first time.
