Salem News: New School Rankings

The Salem Public Schools district managed to raise their performance ratings from a level four…literally the equivalent of a a basic level three, narrowing avoiding a state takeover. I heard school staff and administrators were actually celebrating this, but based on my past experience, If I ever got a mark like this on MY report card my parents and teachers would've been telling me: "Sure, you've improved, but you should be doing SO much better" Or then again, given the state of public schools in general today, maybe I expect too much. This is my cartoon as published in the 09/29/2016 SALEM NEWS.

Salem News: Narcan in Schools

Our local schools are going to be supplied with NARCAN-a drug use in case of opioid overdose. It's a sad state of affairs at schools these days when it's easier to get medication than education. My cartoon as published in the 09/15/2016 SALEM NEWS.

Glove and Boots: Johnny T's Hangover

Fanart based on the GLOVE AND BOOTS puppet troupe. Their videos are on YOUTUBE and I HIGHLY recommend them. They do hilarious pop culture takeoffs and music videos.

A classic (and unfairly maligned) Muppet character.
