It was in the sixth grade I discovered my real talent potential. A classmate of mine told me he would pay me one dollar to draw a picture of our teacher. Because it was a lot of money, I rushed to my task. He was happy, I was rich, and the teacher, who immediately recognized herself, was furious! It must have been great, because that same day I got to meet the principal.

Junior High School was where I really started my career. I drew for the Junior High School paper and a monthly newsletter. A friend and I shared a paper route which is where I dreamed about becoming a professional cartoonist. We talked about it all the time and he was very negative about the idea, he said I would never get published. I decided to prove him wrong.

With a handful of cartoons I rode my bike to my local newspaper, the Warwick Beacon. I was lucky enough to meet the editor and he told me I had talent. He said if I could “polish up” the cartoons I had with me, he’d give me a shot. I went home and “polished” away.

I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was very fortunate to get considered for publication at that age. I’ve been drawing cartoons for magazines and newspapers ever since.

If you feel my style is a good fit for your publication or if you would like something custom made, just let me know. I would be happy to draw something for you. Read Less
