Checking In…

OK, I hate when bloggers explain why they’ve been away for a while.  It’s a lot of blah blah blah and no one really cares anyway, so I’m just going to say this:

22 full color illustrations (one of which contains 18 caricatures) for a large national client.  ‘Nuff said.

Anyway, I’m gonna keep this short so I can keep working, but here’s some stuff that I wanna yap about…

  1. I’m in the August Good Housekeeping with one of my kid/lawyer cartoons. 
  2. I’m also in the new Laughter is the Best Medicine book from Reader’s Digest.
  3. Recently a few radio stations in the Chicago area have changed their formats from “what we think will get the most listeners in our target group” to “whatever we want” (the second one is actually a station’s tag line) and I’m tuning in for an eclectic selection of just plain good music.  Note to syndicates/newspapers:  Don’t worry about demographics.  Give ‘em funnier comics and they will come back.
  4. My new Free Daily Comic feature is a wild success.  Tons of bloggers and sites are using the cartoon.  A few recent faves:

            Yet Another Comics Blog

            Heartland Technologies


            Tumor Boy

OK, that’s it.  I’ll try to get more in next week.
