About

Cartoonist and Writer

I draw and write cartoons/comics. In mid 2017 I ended my 15 year daily comic strip “Tina’s Groove” to work on the daily comic “Rhymes With Orange.” I occasionally do comics, cartoons, and graphic stories for various magazines online and in print, and am co-author and illustrator of the book “Quirky Quarks: A Cartoon Guide to the Fascinating Realm of Physics.” I am syndicated by King Features Syndicate.
