Year-End Wrap-Up

These cartoons were originally submitted to the SALEM NEWS but never published.
After all the hulaballo about windmills in Salem, I'm amazed that this went thru without a hitch..or did it?
This was based upon an article about veterans having seeking employment due to lack of "qualifications". So amazing how these people go out and fight, go thru hell to serve our country, and then get told THIS when they come back home?
And this one was inresponse to the recent Sandy Hook shootings. I realize I may have gone a bit over the top for this one, but for some reason, that old schoolyard chant just stuck in my head..It's amazing how we just used to PRETEND to play guns and never gave it a second thought back then..

My NINTH annual promotional Holiday card for the media company CREATIVE CHARACTERS. This year, they decided to go for a more classical tone, though I must confess I've never been very good at copying the style of the late, great Charles Schulz..

The Disney/Star Wars Deal

Originally published in THE COMICS BUYER'S GUIDE #1698. I'm sure this is old news by now, but given between the gap betweenCBG's deadline and publishing, it couldn't be avoided. Basically a "commentary" on the new mix between STAR WARS and Disney's OTHER accquired properties. It'd make for a Helluva crossover.

SALEM NEWS: Community Pot

Originally published 12/07/2012 in the SALEM NEWS: With the legalization of medicinal marijuana. local community councils are basically going nuts on where and how they're going to locate the dispensiary facilities, and frankly, many, if not most , are not to thrilled about it at all..Right now, many are taking a wait-and-see attitude, but you can't shake the feeling this is what they're thinking..
