Rest Area Rant-Cartoon of the Week

Rest-Area-RantThe Story Behind the Cartoon

You may recognize the face in this cartoon as he is from a long time trucking television show. Alex Debogorski was one of the stars of the show Ice Road Truckers. So how did he get into my comic page? A trucking magazine in Canada called The Face Magazine wanted to feature Alex in their magazine in various content on a regular basis. The Face Magazine editor asked me to draw Alex as the main figure with the topic being the shortage of rest area stops across the country. The text and story was written by Denis Medeiros producer of the magazine and trucking company owner. The magazine has since gone under but it was still fun to do the comic page. I never met Alex but from all accounts I hear he was a really good guy. I hope he liked the comic.
