-+*Here's a Pin-up I just finished last night for John Hoffman's NUN WITH TWO GUNS comic book, which is the culmination of several years of doodling on his part. A while back, John co-created this character with his buddy Warwick J Caldwell, and now, after a few years of random drawings by both of them, she finally has [..READ MORE..]
My drawings of other people’s characters:
-+*I can't think of any cartoonist that I admire more than the great RONALD SEARLE.

-+*I came in to work today (Easter Saturday) to catch up… but I wasn't feeling very well… and nothing meaningful got done by day's end.
