This treasure trove of humor from one of the country’s most prolific cartoonists is filled with comics that range in subject matter from fishing and golf to medicine and business, dogs and cats to children and family. Selected from the fruits of a 30-year freelance career, the cartoons are done in pastels, gray wash, and digital color, with most of the pieces designed in a campy, reader-friendly, black and white line-drawn style. These single-panel illustrations take a peek at our everyday lives—turned on their heads—and are served with witty quips, clever one-liners, and puns, or are occasionally presented as wordless frames conveying a delightfully slapstick scenario. Fans of the funny papers and readers looking for a quick and easy laugh will relate to the ingeniously illustrated, often very silly, situations, which capture our foibles, fears, and just a few flaws, on every page.
