They say that Life imitates Art, but for a cartoonist, Art so often comes from real life. It’s the ‘write what you know’ theory. In this case, a hungry white cat showed up on our doorstep one night and turned our lives upside down. It was immediately expected, by those following the story on facebook, that this blizzard of fur had to appear in Knight and Day.
Oddly enough, I once had a cat very much like Snowie, and it was always my intention to have Snowball appear in my comic strip one day. As nice as that would have been, it just didn’t feel right when Knight and Day rolled around. However, you can see her in a few of my earliest comic strips, in my book Once Upon a Times....
Now, however, I can pay homage to both cats at the same time, and get inspiration from both real life and from happy memories.
I am a professional cartoonist, illustrator and small publisher, and the creator of the Knight and Day comic strip and of The Inquiring Minds. I have published several comic books, some comic strip collections, and a graphic novel, with much more to come. My freelance illustration appears world wide from magazine covers to posters and my work and I have appeared in magazines and newspapers and most notably in the final issue of CARTOONIST PROfiles.
My latest work is a 32 page full color comic book adventure titled The Ghost Pirate Skeletons of Three Craters Lake! available now. :0)
