Lagoon Toons

“Lagoon Toons,”  sometimes referred to as “Marty and Friends,” has been an occasional comic series since approximately 2013. Manatees, dolphins and other lagoon and sea creatures are common sights when you live in southeast Florida. Over the years, I found myself doodling them more and more in notebooks and sketchbooks. Early iterations of the characters took on an “editorial cartoon” appearance, due to the environmental and political issues surrounding our Indian River Lagoon. But the style and tone of the comics have evolved over the years.   See “Lagoon Toons” here.

Uomo Universale

“Uomo Universale”  (Renaissance Man) was my first comic strip in the style of newspaper strips. Prior to this, my comics were always in comic book or graphic novel format. This series appeared in a free monthly local arts publication, “Scene.” This series appeared circa 1996-ish. At the time in my life I was studying art history, reading a lot of “Non Sequitur” and “The Far Side” and I worked for a national toy retailer. You can find examples of all of these things in this strip.   See “Uomo Universale” here.
