Barflies and Monkeys You ladies have all probably experienced it — you're out at a bar, and someone catches your eye. They're cool... confident... striped. You walk over and let them buy you a drink. You talk about your job, and your favorite things... but what you really want to... [ more ]

Another Ambidextrous Comic I'm intrigued by the idea of creating my own flag. It would probably be Mojo on a horse. Or maybe my silhouette eating pizza. Whatever I decide, the flag should feature my motto — which is, fittingly, "I own a flag".... [ more ]

The Harsh Reality He looks pretty successful in that last panel, but Mojo is going to have a lot of problems at this job. He's not as familiar with typing on a typewriter, having been originally trained on a computer. It's a given that the ink tape will be strewn... [ more ]

These things have me buffaloed There are those who can safely consume 20-30 wings in one sitting. There are those who cannot. I happen to fall in the latter category. My most phenomenal gorging was 14 wings, although 12 is a safer number for me to aim for. Not that... [ more ]

A five-day career I am currently serving jury duty, a new highlight in my resume of civic participation. And while I hate to get side-tracked from my "real" job, I think it's been a pretty beneficial experience. For one thing, I now know that juries actually exist. Thanks to television,... [ more ]

This Birthday Sponsored By... Thankfully, I can only count a couple instances where I was the recipient of a restaurant-staffed birthday congratulations.

Sock Monkey Behavioral Observations You have to be REALLY careful letting a sock monkey into the zoo. They're kind of like little kids. They get really excited and next thing you know they've wandered off, looking to get back to their wild roots. Occasionally they'll come back with cotton candy,... [ more ]

Mojo and the Three Panels Since I made the switch from working with one-panel cartoons to multipanel, I've done a lot of experimentation with the dynamics of all those little squares. It's interesting how the number of panels you're working with dictates so much of the story's direction. For instance,... [ more ]

Part angel, part devil. As tempting as it is to think so, this is actually a far cry from Mojo's dreams. I know he has a recurring vision where he goes to class and is in his underwear. Which isn't as embarrassing as you'd think, considering all the other sock... [ more ]
