I moved to Los Angeles two years ago partly to be closer to the entertainment industry, but mostly for the weather. When I draw a cartoon like this, I always pause to look at the wide-open french doors of my studio and the sunny, 75 degrees F temperature outside and thank myself rigorously for moving here. It was a tough time in my life, on the heels of a nasty divorce and a problematic exit from New York City, but MAN, was it worth it!

For those of you trudging through the snow today, be sure to wear plastic bags over your flipflops to keep your feet dry.





BIZARCHAEOLOGY: Here’s a fun little ditty from ’01 that I came across in my archives this morning and thought you might enjoy. I originally did this gag as a badly-drawn daily panel way back in the late 80s, I think, so I resurrected it and did a proper drawing in ’01. the lighting was particularly fun for me but drawing a herd of cattle is a hugely tedious pain in my cartoon ass. (The men in my family are assless so I have a drawing of an ass where my real one should be.)   Click the sixth-steer-from-the-left’s face to bigify the image.bz 12-09-01 cowboy guitarWEB
