The Kinder Morgan pipeline project that's been causing such an uproar in the North Shore has been indefintely suspended. Kinder -Morgan is claiming that the sole reason for stopping the project was that fossil fuels would no longer be "viably feasible'' but I'm sure that the constant public outrage and resistance had a lot to do with it. My cartoon from the 04/25/2016 SALEM NEWS.

Some time ago, I posted a lot of art I did for the MYTH ADVENTURES (from the novels by the late Robert Asprin) fan club zine, MYTH INFORMATION. Going thru the vast piles of junk that passes for a filing system, I ran across this issue which I thought I had lost. In a way, this is the most special issue I had contributed to, for it was double-sized, and Brin and Kevin let me have several pages doing fan-based art of the recently-published MYTH-NOMERS and IM-PERVECTIONS. Here is all my art from that issue in its (technincal) glory. (Text segments were written by the lovely "Ms. Mythfit", Brin-Marie Landerman) This is also the issue that finally got me interested enough to finally start attending conventions, which brang a lot of needed happiness into my life.

Somehow it's not very likely you'll be working for MAD Magazine when you try drawing Alfred E. Neuman and end up with Peter Lorre. I just hope I don't end up giving anyone nightmares.

TOUGHPIGS, the major Muppet fansite I do art for, did an April Fool's day promotion in which the website was turned into a parody promotional piece about UP LATE WITH MISS PIGGY, the show-within-a-show featured on ABC's THE MUPPETS. Several members contributed articles, and I came up with this new artwork:
This is the original drawing for the logo. I did have to shrink things down a bit as well as get rid of the background due to space issues for the final version, but except for the font graphics that Joe Hennes added (based on the show's UP LATE logo) This is pretty much how it appeared.
I also had to come up with several new icons for the sidebar categories. The images had to be heavily reduced for the site, but these files give you a better idea of how they looked in their original size. I had to keep the designs and colors a bit simpler than I usually do due to the reductions.
