Cold Dream

This is how cold it feels.

Disneyland

It seems to me that every time I go it looks something like this.

One hour Foto

This was inspired by the incompetence of one hour photo depots.

The Future

The idea for this came from all the old cartoons forecasting the future with everyone wearing matching silver jumpsuits.

Breakfast Debunkle

I wrote this a long time ago, and some years later when I was working at a printing company I heard this exact same conversation... minus the end bit.

Catcus-Leaf-Toe

Christmas is about improvisation.

Star Boy

This is for recognition of St. Lucia day yesterday, its a Swedish holiday that involves good food and good looking women, who says Swedes don't know how to party.

Frosty Attacks

This is from all the Fox Trot comics I grew up with, where snowmen would be done up in a varied of different pros. I also think this would be hilarious to see done to someone... not me, but someone else.

Santa Photo's

This is how the mall good drive more revenue in the photo's with Santa industry.

Insta-Nog

Another of the Nog related ideas for the holidays.

Timing

This is to show that mistletoe is all about timing, you can't just go at it on a whim.

Constipation

So the actual idea for this came from a postcard ad from American Eagle. The postcard featured a guy and a girl walking through the falling snow looking like quite the perfect couple. My thought process first took me to think well what if its their first date, it went further to think, well you know that the guy would be completely nervous and try to impress her with knowledge and big words. A few more minutes of hammering out idea's and imaging the panels in my mind, and it was done.

Christmas Bonsi

I always wanted a Bonsi tree there like a miniature greyhound, just like the normal size greyhound but pocket sized.

Thursday, December 4, 2008

Mud Grass-Man

This idea comes from spending time in Philly where is only snows every so often, so you have to make do with what you got.

Charlie Brown Christmas

This is in the spirit of the Charlie Brown Christmas, mixed with reality.

Turkey Bowl

Here is a little Thanksgiving treat for the holiday. I've always wanted to do this but doubt I will ever seize the opportunity.

Monday, November 24, 2008

Choc-o-lot-a-nog

This is for all the Egg Nog fanatics that only have a few months of the year to enjoy and exploit this poultry dairy product.

Chicken


This came around by way of someone suggesting I draw a guy in a chicken suit.

Breakfast Buffet

This was an incident that happened when I was traveling with my wife's family. For breakfast her father really wanted a buffet but there weren't any open that early, so her brother suggested to just order a lot of extra food to pick and choose what you want.

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

Turkey-Zilla

This is an idea I had about the freakiness of birds and how evil they can be.

Monday, November 17, 2008

Wolrds Greatest Invention

This is an idea that popped into my head one day when I was craving soup in a bread bowl.

New Comic


This is an older comic, not the new story I've been talking about. I have two panels of the new one done and loaded onto the computer but I don't have the rest of the story drawn out yet, so I don't want to have two of them on and not post the other ones for a while. Instead I have uploaded a bunch of older ones to fill in the time until the new ones are put up. I didn't do this earlier because a lot of some of my older stuff was around holidays and we were in summer, I don't like to read holiday comics when it not near the holiday.
This one is to make fun of the measures people will go to create holiday appeal. Totally not a true story, though it would be really awesome if it were.

Something new

Okay I know that I have been slacking on posts, but I have several good explanations. Unfortunately you will not hear any of them. To make it up to you all I am in the middle of putting together a six comic story arch that should be pretty laugh out loud if you will. Those will get posted soon, I just need to draw them, they are all written out.

Polar Bear

I had this idea after I went to the zoo one time, and was yet again pointed out how similar the feature and habits of a polar bear reflect my own.

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

Fabric Softner

So this dates back to the time of kids living on their own and not knowing how to do laundry. This is a true story by the way, it happened to a friend of mine when he was out with his friends at a laundro-mat and couldn't figure out why everyone's was soapy looking and his wasn't.

Mistaken Identity

I heard this story about four or five years ago then decided to make it into a comic, and this is the result. True story.

So Tired

I drew this during a time when I was getting very little sleep and barely able to operate. Much like now, but its a different kind of tired and worn out. For the record he is holding a glass of hot chocolate, its the pure stuff so it needs the added sweetness.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

Breezey

I drew this one in anticipation of a river rafting trip I went on. In reality it was an eight man raft with nine people and we didn't have a cooler... and I forgot to bring a newspaper to make into a pirate hat.

Bathroom Gambler

This is another of the Las Vegas comics that I did. Everywhere in Vegas and the surrounding areas there are slot machines, so I thought it would be funny if they had you play the slots to get into the bathroom. As you can see by the date in the bottom of this comic, I did this one about three years ago add a week or so.

Gambling Problem

This is one of a series inspired by a trip to Vegas with some of my friends for the Las Vegas 100th birthday party. We won tickets to see Weezer and Red Hot Chili Peppers. This was all of ours first time in Las Vegas when we were 21, so of course we knew we were going to have fun. Needless to say I think I spent two dollars on roulette and a dollar on the nickel slots and called it quits.

Dog Washing

This idea was inspired from an actual event which means, part of it really happened. Before I was born and after my Grandma Thelin died, my Grandpa Thelin was dating this real witch of a woman who had already buried three or so other husbands gaining a profit. My dad was trying to support my grandfather and invited them both over for dinner with my family, in which she completely insulted every kid and the family. In retaliation my dad had my oldest brother round up the plates after dinner and then proceeded to have our Saint Bernard Lab mix Muzzy lick all the plates clean and put them back in the cupboards. This lady then completely changed her tone and left as soon as she could. After the fiasco my mom then had my dad wash every dish in the kitchen for fear of what any of the licked dishes may have touched.

Morning Bear

Yet another polar bear reference... You wouldn't believe how this can be funny over and over again, yet it does it so well.

Monday, June 30, 2008

The Great White

This comes from the on going pun of people saying I look like a polar bear, and the fact that I have a white fur vest that I wear in the winter.

Hot Grill on Grill Action

Ode to Fourth of July, I drew this back in 04' so uh speed ahead four years and its still funny. The inspiration for this came from one of my favorite comics Foxtrot, the dad would always empty about two bottles of lighter fluid into the grill then light it. Now of course that was a charcoal grill, so I added the gas grill for extra comedic humor.

Viking Women

I first drew this as something I wanted to translate into Swedish to be my first international comic, but as I started to translate I realized I only knew Swedish words not phrases. I kept it in English, knowing that someday I would translate it into Swedish for internal funny... today is not that some day.

Porkey's

This was another Sunday challenge from my brother, and one of my friends. The pig idea came from my brother the shirt came from my friend. I think some of my newer comics have more of a dialog and and plot development for telling a story, with the same wittiness of the short and simple comics.

Saturday, June 21, 2008

Doctor What?

This has long been an inspired idea for a strip, but I have never been able to figure out how to do it tastefully and not as tacky as it could be.

Friday, June 20, 2008

Aw Pants

The idea behind this one came from a friend of mine who was eating and spilled his food all over him. I swear he said "Aw pants" but he claims he never did.

Thursday, June 19, 2008

Dog Whipped

This idea I had from how dogs can always smell if you have even been near another dog.

Scourge of the Dictionary

I drew this around Halloween if you couldn't tell by the storyline. I have always like that there was an English book called the Thesaurus, it always sounded like it should have been some kind of dinosaur, thus this comic is spawned. Allison gets bugged about this one because she says there should be a coma in the "the thesaurus, scourge of the Jurassic period." part. "I say dang it Jim, I'm a fashion designer not an English major." Allison likes to go by the name Jim.

The Good, The Bad, and The Right

This is another of the oldies pulled out for amusement. The devil and angel gag has always intrigued me so I figured I would dabble and do one up, this is the result.

Saturday, June 7, 2008

Combo

This is an old one that I did quite a while ago, but still makes me laugh... This may sound like a lame pick up line, but how do you think I got together with Allison.

White Men Can't Jump

So this idea comes from a scene in the movie called White Men Can't Jump. In the scene its the middle of the night and a couple is laying in bed and the woman remarks how she is thirsty and the male goes and gets her a glass of water; she then replies she doesn't want a glass of water she wants to talk about how she is thirsty, if she wanted a glass of water she could have gotten it herself. This shows that men just want to fix things while women just want to talk about how it makes them feel.

Apetizers, Main Course and Murder

So this came from me reading a barrel of detective novels recently. I think I pretty much nailed how to draw Allison in this one, so that is good. For a more riveting read, while reading the part for the "Detective" read it in a 1950's PI voice or 1930's gangster voice.

Phone Phun

This idea came to me while thinking about how my brother would call people pretending to be a radio host. This is a more dumbed down version of that, maybe I'll do another comic about that some time. The area code that appears on the phone book is for downtown Philadelphia.
