Harts Pass No. 370


Definitely inspired by TOO much waiting around for things to happen. I try not to get bogged down in waiting, or reading the news, or overthinking things that are quite a bit beyond my control... but it seems to be a pretty natural thing to which we all fall victim. I do feel much better for sure when I just keep moving -- or "acting" -- or creating and don't metaphorically stare at the "buffering" for too long. Onward and upward!

Bear Witness Comics No. 3


The so called "uncertainty" is insane.

Bear Witness Comics No. 2


I'm admittedly new to the political cartooning, but "bear" with me if you will. I hope to do at least one or two of these a week, and there seems to be plenty to talk about. A rapid-fire morning here as I add things to my blog that have already landed on Instagram and Facebook. Enjoy!

Bear Witness Comics No. 1


A new series of comics for me - and this time with an intentionally political bent. It's not much really, but in some fashion similar to the Polar Bear Post Card Project, these Bear Witness strips will be a way for me to process the news of the day and to participate in the conversation.

And hopefully, somewhere in these words and pictures will be a reminder to think -- to have a respect for our fellow citizens (and bears even!) - and to take things like science, and common sense, and decency into account before making crucial decisions that effect our communities, country, and world. 

Full disclosure - after strongly considering Bear Witness comics -- as in certify, attest - provide evidence for the truth of something; or to declare - to state emphatically and authoritatively - I decided to make a title change starting with my 4th installment :) The original title, Bear in Mind comics just wasn't quite as sturdy.

The "falling back" is a little weird I'll admit -- but it definitely bothers some people on a whole different level. Bring on the dark. Bring on the snow. Winter baby! Ready to go!

Harts Pass No. 368


Posting this one a little early... and also a little late! Fun to be drawing a Halloween costumed family of wolverine super heroes (and villain) on the actual day, but it shows up in the paper today and usually online on Thursday. Alas, so it goes. Hope all the kiddos had fun trick-or-treating!

The return of "Dear Melanie!" It's been years since she answered any reader mail and the time has come to get back to work. GRRR!

This one pretty much speaks for itself...

I'm a bit of a broken record when it comes to fall. My second favorite season of the year for sure!

High school math has entered our den -- where three variable terms form one most excellent trinomial expression! Mr. Foley, feel free to correct or elaborate upon my understanding and/or use of mathematical lingo!

I'm getting over my first cold of the fall -- and an early one at that (to be blamed in my mind on too late summer forest fire smoke). Anyway, nothing that a little fall color can't cure for sure. Cheers!
