I'm a Storyteller.
I've always believed that half of what I do as a cartoonist/artist is

Communicating with images should be relatively easy. After all, a picture is
supposed to be worth a thousand words (or is it ten thousand?).
But it's still all about telling a story... whether it's a brief, simple idea or joke, or a long, intricate epic!
In my career, I've received help and encouragement from a great many people -- and I'm a strong believer in "Paying It Forward"!

I also enjoy acting as an "Ambassador" for Visual Storytelling...
so I created some Illustrated Lectures on the subject.
In my presentations, I discuss things that are a big part of everyone's daily life
but often go unnoticed or taken for granted: cartoons, illustrations, graphics, designs, visual stories.
The talks are all profusely illustrated, and include:
