My latest comic book

As a geezer, I’m always on the lookout for a deal, so when I heard I could attend any state university in Georgia for free... well, count me in!

This is what it is like for a guy who graduated from college in 1981 to go back to school, trying to adapt to the culture that is the University of Georgia today.

There have been quite a few changes, needless to say.

48 pages total. Available soon on Indyplanet.com and is now on Kindle.

How did I start making comics?

I've always enjoyed comics as a medium, from childhood to the present day. There's something about storytelling with words and pictures that I find very compelling, and I always wanted to do it myself. But I never had a story I wanted to tell.

Then in 2002, I was diagnosed with a detached retina, which threatened my eyesight. After recovering, and at age 45, I wrote and drew my first comic book, Detached, about that experience and since then I've started doing commercial illustration, as well as creating the weekly comic strip Grumbles.
