Team Cul de Sac

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Fellow cartoonist Richard Thompson, the creator behind “Cul de Sac,” was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. I met Richard at last year’s Reuben Awards. He and I were listening to hilarious stories from Arnie Roth. Richard is up for the “Cartoonist of the Year” and Cul de Sac is up for Best Strip at this years Reubens.

Chris Sparks is running a”Team” as part of Michael J. Fox’s efforts to raise funds for research. Team Cul de Sac will be producing a book of drawings submitted to the effort and the originals will be auctioned off. You can find out more here and visit the “Team Cul de Sac” blog here.

Here’s my submission, influenced by the Oct. 02, 2007 strip where Danders the guinea pig explains why he hates hermit crabs.

I’m Back!

This has been a very busy Spring. The semester is over (I teach as an adjunct at a local college) and, hopefully, not too many students want to throw darts at my photo. So, in between some ongoing projects (more details when I can), 2×4’s and spackle, and a car restoration or two, I might have a chance to post some new sketches.

This rough sketch is how I’ve felt lately. Trying to control the Frankenclient.

Alright, alright, what's another deadline. Oh, sorry . . . undeadline.
