A Moment of Fun…

(Because all work and no play makes Jo a dull girl, indeed!)

From My Sketchbook – Rhymes and Doodles

These days the subways are all breaking down,

Which gave this commuter a prominent frown.

I, too, might have frowned and gone out of my head,

But I took out my notebook and sketched her instead.

Hanging Loose…

Because the other option (holding tight) hasn’t served me so well!

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.”

Drumroll for Another Published Cartoon!

My “Bundled Severance Package” cartoon was actually the first cartoon I ever got published.  The American Legion Magazine accepted it back in January 2018, but it was only just published in their May 2018 issue.  As a “newbie” to the world of published cartoons, I can’t say enough good things about the folks at The American Legion.  They have been unfailingly prompt, courteous and friendly.  I feel so fortunate and grateful to have had them as my first publisher!

Meet my friend named Jorge.

Violinist and charming Signore.

I sketched him during a show,

(When things were a little slow.)
