The Cancer Convoy-Cartoon of the Week

The Story Behind the Cartoon

Since the folks at Trucking for a Cure are having their convoy in Woodstock Ontario this weekend I thought this cartoon would be appropriate. I completed this illustration for the group years ago for a convoy showing some of the participants that played a major role in those early years. If you get a chance to get out and participate then it is a great way to get the family involved. Here is a link to the convoy for more information. www.truckingforacure.com

A career influenced by Marvin-Cartoon of the Week

The Story Behind the Cartoon

If you look back on your career it is interesting to see how those early influences have played apart in life. One of my favourite cartoons from the age of around 12 was Marvin by Tom Armstrong. The strip is still available to this day and I used to copy the cartoons out of the paper. Here is one scene from a strip that I copied at the age of thirteen or so. This was how I learned to draw. Thank you to Tom Armstrong and many other great artists for playing a part in my career to this day. Enjoy!

The License-Cartoon of the Week

License-cartoon by Bruce Outridge

The Story Behind the Cartoon

This cartoon came from a joke I heard over the radio one day from the DJ at the time who would read a joke each morning. I believe I was in Timmins or somewhere driving my truck when it came over and at my next stop I jotted the idea down on my note pad. Years later it became a cartoon. Sorry I couldn’t give credit to the person that told me the joke, but it is funny. Moral of the story never let kids play in your purse. Enjoy!

The Story Behind the Cartoon

This cartoon was for an article on scheduling your social media. It is amazing to see how much content is required to keep your social media profiles up to date and interesting.

The Interview-Cartoon of the Week

Media cartoon

The Story Behind the Cartoon

As someone who is not only an artist but entrepreneur with podcasts and now a television show I have interviewed hundreds of people. Some people get nervous as soon as the camera is rolling or the microphone is on. People prepare for the deep in-depth questions but very often mess up on the basics like their name. With that in mind this cartoon was born. Enjoy!

The Social Media Rant-Cartoon of the Week

Social-Media-Driver-Cartoon

The Story of the Week

Everyday I see so many rants on social media and I often think to myself you’re just killing your career. People think that talking on social media is like talking over a cup of coffee. It may be the same but it is the same as having that rant over coffee with a news anchor and cameraman listening in. Be careful what you say, it could haunt you forever.

A Day at the Beach-Cartoon of the Week

A Day at the Beach Cartoon

The Story Behind the Cartoon

As a lover of the beach in the Caribbean we often see this scenario happening. Parents just want to take a break and lie on the beach so they hand their cell phones to the kids to play games and keep them quiet. The problem is when they fall into a deep sleep the kids are actually calling China. I think the kids may have the real advantage as they already have a plan in place as to what ransom they will need to keep quiet and stay put.  Enjoy your Summer!

Hip Abductor Cartoon-Cartoon of the Week

Gymdazzled---The-Hip-AbductorThe Story Behind the Cartoon

This cartoon was part of a small strip I did many years ago on going to the gym called Gymdazzled. Most gyms will offer new clients a consultation on the machines. This is my take on being shown a certain machine for hips.
