I draw this here comic, Randie and Ryan. I started its predecessor, Squid Row way back in 2002 after seeing a Calvin & Hobbes retrospective at Ohio State University. That exhibition made me want to be a cartoon stripper.

I procured an art degree from UC Santa Cruz many moons ago… but I have been drawing comics per se since high school.

I recently moved from Central California to Portland, Oregon. It is quite a change from the golden hills of my home state to the overt green of the plentitude of trees all over the place. Portland has a lot of silly and for this, I was drawn to it.

Drop in on Squid Row over at www.squidrowcomics.com. I still draw the strip which drops every Saturday. There’s a large archive there, so why not delve in and get to know our pals from their very beginnings.
