One  comic I stumbled on while glancing  thru of all things, THE JAPAN TIMES a couple years back, was a delightful weekly feature called ZERO GRAVITY, chronicalling the misadventures of Larry and Lilly, an american married couple living in Japan, dealing with the culture, food, and living. The strip is written and drawn by a very talented cartoonist named Roger Dahl, who also does Japan-based editorial cartoons for TJT as well as his regular strip. Roger has finally put out a collection of over 300 of his cartoons in a new book titled COMIC JAPAN. The book is excellent and I highly recommend it. You can order it thru Amazon, or check out the latest cartoons plus archives at the JAPAN TIMES website. The drawing below is my take on Roger's main characters, Larry and Lilly, and the older woman with then is their elderly neighbor JUNKO KOYAMA. You can also check out Roger's Japan Times cartoons and other works at http://www.dahlcartoons.com

Chickened Out

These were done some time ago, for a local grocery store chain, but never used. There was talk for a while of possibly using me to do drawings like this for the entire company, but they ..ahem.. chickened out.

A couple of Kermit-based Muppet fan art entries:
In the early days of the Muppets, before Kermit fully became a frog and started wearing his collar,
Kermit wore a red sweater.

Salem News: Sick Of Hearing About It

It's amazing how many people's idea of conversation is to constantly state the obvious, especially when it comes to weather. All we've gone thru this past winter and they won't shut up about it. My cartoon as published in the 03/17/2015 SALEM NEWS.

Yet Another Star Wars/Hanna-Barbera Mash Up.

Probably more animated than it deserves.

If It Was Good Enough For Scooby…

A take on those old Flinstones cereal commercials. The Don Knotts character you see here is based on the design used for THE NEW SCOOBY-DOO MOVIES. Since he was best known for playing Barney Fife on the ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW, a joke based on that would be quite obvious, yet also fit into the Hanna-Barbera style…

Marching In

Random sketches I've done over the past month or so. Some of them were used as Birthday wishes for friends. As for the others, don't even TRY to ask me to explain them.
