The Cartoonist Speaks


I'll be speaking at KC's All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church (4501 Walnut) this Sunday, September 26 at 10 AM. The presentation's entitled "Drawings of Fake Bands, Strange Families, and Imaginary Places," in which I'll examine how tiny drawings in pen and marker grew to consume my very existence. I'll also discuss my influences, my haphazard creative process, and the dangerously glamorous field of newspaper cartooning. Fellow Catholics - I checked with the pope - this will fulfill your weekly mass requirement!

Until next Sunday, here's one of the stranger pages from my sketchbook:
