For some reason it bothered me more this year, but I don’t see or hear the word “Christmas” enough anymore. If anyone thinks there hasn’t been a campaign to ban the word, they should watch the Food Network show I just turned off where two girls were planning a party with candy canes, nutcrackers and […]

After wrapping up my second time vacationing in Las Vegas I have learned something: it’s not really for me. I don’t really gamble. The first time I put down a five dollar bill and get nothing in return I’ve lost interest. The shopping, as a whole, is prohibitively expensive. And I was there with my […]

Before you scoff, I know someone in Seattle who’s company is calling their tree the “Holiday Winter Solstice Tree.” We just got this year’s Scooter and Ferret Christmas cards made, I printed out fifty last night. The paper jammed three times when I tried to print ten at a time so I had to print […]

Throwing your back out feels like getting stabbed from behind […]

For those of you that are local to Seattle, tonight is the Cartoonist Northwest Christmas party. It will be held in the usual room at the School of Visual Concepts, and as this will be my first CNW event in several months I’m hoping to see a good turnout. The time is 7:00 pm, dress […]

The year is drawing to a close and the storyline in Scooter and Ferret is referencing that old Rankin-Bass annual staple, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I’m going to tell a short story that keeps that cartoon very personal for me. My first job was a perma-lance gig with Primal Screen Studios. The Cartoon Network was […]

How did Christmas get here so fast this year? I own a well-worn video casette copy of the Rankin-Bass Rudolph special (be warned, horrifying MIDI music embedded). Looking back on it now, it’s amazing to see both how jerky the motion is and how utterly charming it is as a whole. I don’t think I’m […]
