When I was a child, war was despised. The Vietnam war was a big waste of people and resources. Being patriotic was considered to be only for the sheep who follow aimlessly. Today everything is just the opposite, if you don’t want the war, what’s wrong with you. I can’t remember a time that there wasn’t some sort of armed conflict going on in the world, what a waste.

I found these in the archive of jokes that I keep, I have no attribution, so if you know, drop me a note.
Can you cry under water?
How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?
Why do you have to ‘put your two cents in’ … but it’s only a penny for your thoughts’? Where’s that extra penny going to?
Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?
Why does a round pizza come in a square box?
What disease did cured ham actually have? (more…)

Sent from my friend Steve Capp
According to a radio report, a middle school in Oregon was faced with a unique problem. A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man.
She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance guy to clean one of the mirrors. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it into the toilet and then cleaned the mirror. Since then there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
There are teachers and then there are Teachers ….

This gang of caricatures isn’t the largest set of caricatures I’ve done. Last year I did a set of 50 people in caricature. Caricature is fun but challenging, sometimes you get pictures as small as your pinky fingernail, or every person has sunglasses on. That’s the toughest, since most of the likeness is in the eyes. Inking in Manga Studio, color in Corel Painter.

I’ve kept this image since college (at Alberta College of Art + Design). I found this illustration in a book of woodblock prints from the turn of the century. I think the cartoon can be applied to so many situations.

From my joke files, not sure who to attribute this joke to though. If you know, drop me a note.
Three women and three men are traveling by train to the Super Bowl. At the station, the three men each buy a ticket and watch as the three women buy just one ticket. ‘How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket ?’ asks one of the men. ‘Watch and learn; answers one of the women. They all board the train. The three men take their respective seats, but all three women cram into a toilet together and close the door.

Hunters beware! This image was done entirely digital. Roughs were done in Sketchbook Pro, finished art was done in Manga Studio (it has the best “inking” tools). The image was drawn on an orange ground. All was drawn on a 22″ Cintiq tablet. This is a fairly new technique for me and I’m loving it.

I found this image in an old sketchbook the other day. I had to finish it in Illustrator. The original was brush and ink and was done when I was drawing some Rottweilers for a project a couple of years ago.
