Don't Panic! No...wait...I mean "PANIC!! Yes, most definitely PANIC!"

Yes, I used the words “sane” and “cartoonist” together. SHUT UP! The end result of this ridiculously overworked […]

SPORK TOWER – Soup’s On!


 SOUP’S ON! I did some kitchen improv and came up with an approximation for an easy, tasty soup I tried a few years ago, in Morocco. But before getting to that, I want to post a couple of quick things that blew me away, and helped turn a relatively lousy day into a delightful one. Yesterday started out crummy, […]

Rabbit Rabbit!


Rabbit rabbit! Happy July, and hello to this little guy who appeared in our backyard. It’s been an incredible week of high temperatures and heavy storms, flooding and tornadoes that were too close for comfort. Nobody hurt, fortunately. But it’s left Daughter, Age 5, unsettled. I’ll take the blame for that. Several months ago, at a charity […]

Hey, gang! WE’RE DOIN’ IT AGAIN! Because of YOU, Team Duck-On-The-Helmet (i.e., me) raised more than $4,000 to support the FairShare CSA Coalition’s Bike the Barns ride in 2013!

Because I’m packing for the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio, this weekend! It’s a bit of an odd feeling, as I’ve not been to the show in seven or eight years, best as […]

Matt and Gilly: Theme (Music) and Variation


  First off: EVERYONE GOT THEIR CHARITY COLORING BOOKS BY NOW, right? Anyway, here’s a new drawing of Matt and Gilly I just finished. Gilly is back in her black Perky Goth garb for the first time in years. So I suppose this counts as a #ThrowbackThursday on some level. Why am I thinking about (and drawing) Matt and […]

Get Yer Charity Coloring Books Here!


You may remember that last year, I went on an insane 70-mile bike ride. For charity. Mostly you may remember this because I keep reminding you about it. Over and over and over. You guys helped me raise an insane amount of money at Bike the Barns, to benefit the Fair Share CSA coalition. I had hoped to raise […]
