Unauthorized Cameo Alert

Here’s a quick notice to let you know that my creepy visage has appeared in the background of another “Watson” comic. Look below and see if you can find me.Screen Shot 2014-10-22 at 11.53.48 AM

For more fun art and comics from the wildly roaming mind of Jim Horwitz (JimmyHo to his friends) go to his FB page and go crazy. He’s got lots of good Halloweeny stuff right now. I love his art and his ideas are ALL OVER THE MAP.  Which is, in my humble opinion, a good thing! (more…)

Here are a few fun things.

First, my buddy Jim Horwitz (aka JimmyHo) writes a comic called “Watson.” It’s a quirky little feature, to be sure, and Jim tends to meander all over the place with it but that’s exactly what I love about it. And I particularly adore his artwork. In spite of how they look, they are not printed in newspapers with the reverse side of the page bleeding through, that’s some kind of wacky Photoshop trick that JimmyHo has devised. I’m no novice at Photoshop, but I have no idea how he does this. It’s cool, though. (more…)

Are you gluten free? From what I’ve read, very few people actually have problems with gluten but the vast publicity it has gotten has caused an avalanche of psychosomatic symptoms. Never underestimate the power of suggestion on the human mind. Whatever works for you. (more…)

Bizarro is brought to you today by Japanese Super Heroes.

This cartoon is a lampoon of the beloved, cheap ‘n’ cheezy Japanese sci-fi films of bygone days, as well as a comment on our modern attention span. Some of you may remember such eminent feature films as King Kong vs. Godzilla,Godzilla vs. Mothra, and King Kong Saves Godzilla’s Life With CPR. Today’s sequel to these brilliant cinemagraphical feats was the brainchild of my cartoon colleague and good buddy, Jim Horwitz, whom we in the industry fondly refer to as “Jimmy Ho.” JimHo does a web cartoon called “Watson,” which I’ve mentioned on this blog before. As the newspaper industry shrinks and fewer cartoon features are being signed to syndication contracts all of the time, Jim is part of the new wave of cartoonists whose work only appears on the web. Let’s call them “New Artists.” I don’t know why, but let’s do. (more…)
