HURRICANE HARRISON

Posted on

Below is our most recent PSA for PKD. “Harrison was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) before he was born. His dad, a teacher and illustrator, has found artistic inspiration in his tough little boy, who the family calls Hurricane Harrison. Today, he has defied the odds stacked against him, but there is still a long road ahead. More treatment options will be needed for Harrison as his PKD progresses. Watch his story to find out how you can help children like Harrison.” You can see the video here Hurricane Harrison

50 Strip Rule

I read once it takes a cartoon strip 50+ strips before all the kinks
get worked out…by strip #2 I’ve already abandoned the ruler for
lettering and trusted hand & eye.

POP Remedy is real!

Posted on

Today is a special day for multiple reasons. The pioneer of cause and comics, Team Cul De Sac’s Chris Sparks, and his team at Sparking Design are the genius behind this site design. It’s more than I could have imagined so thank you my new, good mentor and friend…xo.

It is also the first day of my new comic strip ‘WATTER’ It has been almost 5 years since my last strip and this idea stuck and tickled. While there are some definite obstacles moving from digital back to traditional work ( like getting my hand to work )…I believe it was worth it. I hope you check out ‘WATTER’ each and every FRIDAY moving forward and soon each and every original strip and limited edition prints will be for sale with proceeds going to my cause…the fight against Kidney Disease…I promise to deliver with true grit and integrity every step and strip of the way.

Last but not least it is WORLD KIDNEY DAY! “World Kidney Day aims to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our overall health and to reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems worldwide. Get involved!” My baby boy, Harrison, was born on World Kidney Day in 2012 and suffers from kidney disease. He is the inspiration for POP Remedy. This is just one cause associated with one comic…POP Remedy is positioned and soon enough will house many comics and causes.

I never thought comics would take me down this path…hell…I never thought I would have a child with a disease. Redefining my success and happiness is what got me here…your support is what will keep me.

Pencils. Panels. People. Planet. Pop Remedy is comic syndicate to remedy the world. Time to start stripping…be good.
