My Bio
I’ve always loved both drawing and writing, and what better way to combine the two than to draw (or write) comics? Of course, to be any good at creating a comic, one has to enjoy reading comics as well. When reading the paper, a lot of people seek out the sports or business sections first and foremost. While I myself rather enjoy catching an occasional article from these sections (when the headline alone isn’t enough), I always have to get my daily dose of funnies first and foremost. I sometimes even pick up a new drawing technique simply by studying the artwork of my favorite cartoons (as well as my not-so-favorite ones). Although I’m displaying my cartoons online here, I must confess that I wasn’t always very well acquainted with other people’s webcomics. As suggested above, a good 99% of the comic strips and panels I read were of the syndicated variety, and I read them straight from the newspaper. Since then, I have also been enjoying webcomics from indie cartoonists on sites that my own cartoons appear on. I really couldn’t tell you what my very favorite comic strip is, but if I had to name the ones at the top of my list, I’d probably have to go with Garfield by Jim Davis, Calvin & Hobbes by Bill Watterson, FoxTrot by Bill Amend and Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley. If you were to ask me what my favorite comic panel is, I could answer that with no trouble at all: Gary Larson’s The Far Side. You may have your own preferences regarding comics (I hope you’ll like mine).
It’s pretty much a no-brainer that the more you read, the smarter you’ll get. The fact that I choose to read about goofy looking characters embarrassing themselves day after day is probably both interesting and disturbing at the same time.
