Some of my recent work is displayed with the announcer profiles at www.kkbj.com and www.wbji.com. Otherwise the best place to see my work is right here at Mnartists.org!
I believe there are some informal collections of my cartoon strips and greeting card designs.
In recent years, my work has been published mainly on the internet, and has consisted of mostly caricatures.
In the past, however, I have published ongoing cartoon strips and occasional editorial cartoons in local newspapers such as the Northern Student (1977-81 and 1984-86), Bemidji Pioneer (1981-82 and 1989-92), and ByLine of Bemidji (1996). Also, a graphic short story was selected for publication in the spring 1980 issue of Loonfeather, a regional quarterly arts journal.
