Biffy - The Comic Biffy Comics

A Hilarious Comic Praised by King Features...

Yet, they still didn't publish it. The late Jay Kennedy (the man with the final say in what's good and what's not even wrote me a personal note about how much he loved it. Then he said he wasn't sure if he could find the strip an audience! Recently I've decided that it's time to breathe new life into Biffy, Granny and Suction-Cup Man.

Children's IllustrationsAh, Yes... The Children

Kids Either Love Your Art or They Don't

A huge part of my career was spent doing children's illustrations and animation. In fact, I spent so much of my time drawing dinosaurs that I started to think I was one. Here is a small selection of that silly style kids love.

My Art Adorns Many Bar Room Walls... and a Lot of Packaging, Too.

Puppets for the Thinking Man...

The Sven and Angus Show has a modest following of about 10,000 crazy Facebook fans. Don't ask why the Grim Reaper and the toy ventriloquist dummy Willie Talk are best friends and share an apartment. That's not for you to understand...

Check out what Sven does for fun. No really. Snow sculpting is actually in the Winter Olympics, so don't laugh. Well, you can laugh at the helmets... and the other ridiculous stuff I do with Bjorn and Thorfinn.
