12-26-14 first day of christmas005 - color

This cartoon is appearing today in the Beachcomber, a twice-monthly local newspaper in Long Beach, CA. A few weeks ago I sent a link to this blog to Jay Beeler, the editor of the Beachcomber. He liked the cartoons and wanted to support a local Long Beach artist, so he agreed to run a whiteouts cartoon in each issue.

Growing up I idolized folks like Charles Schulz (Peanuts), Gary Larson (The Far Side), and Bill Waterson (Calvin and Hobbes), and dreamed of being a newspaper cartoonist. It’s not the LA Times, but I’ve realized that dream and it makes me very happy.

I’m aiming for even bigger things but if this is as far as it goes, I’ll be grateful and content.
