Mary Hirsch famously said “Humor is a rubber sword—it allows you to make a point without drawing blood.” Since I faint at the sight of blood, I’ll definitely opt for the rubber sword (or my dip pen!) My humor is gentle – old school, even – yet witty. I write all of my own gags and of course draw all of my own cartoons. Gag-less cartoons are my personal Holy Grail. Because if I can elicit a laugh with just a drawing I’ll feel like I’ve succeeded. To date, my single panel cartoons have been published by The American Legion Magazine, Renaissance Magazine, Cruising Outpost, and The Countryman Magazine.
