I’m doing cartooning for a syphilis prevention advertising campaign in San Francisco. Syphilis rates have gone up 50% in San Francisco over the past year, so the goal of this campaign is to encourage people to get tested regularly. The campaign features four main cartoon characters: three penises and a syphilis sore.
If you’re Facebook and want to keep track of this campaign, make friends with Byron (the black penis). He’s a cool guy.

The cartoonist collective I belong to, Tall Tale Features, is growing! We recently added two members to our group: Irma Eriksson (creator of “Imy”) and Norm Feuti (creator of “Gill.”) If the name Norm Feuti sounds familiar, you might know his syndicated strip, “Retail.”) We are very happy to have these two talented people in our group. Check out their strips!
