I've been drawing comics since the late 1950s. I had a little instruction in the 1960s, but when I went to college, I didn't take any art courses because I didn't want The Man to touch anything so important. In my 30s, I realized that some instruction would probably help me improve my drawing, so I took a few classes at The School of Visual Arts and Rockland Community College. I even got an associate's degree in graphic design a couple of years ago. Along the way, I kept working on some comics and a children's book while raising children and building my journalism career. This blog focuses on my latest, "mature" phase. I'm finally taking my comics public!
