Served: a missionary comic anthology
While I am not much of a churchy person anymore, from 1995-1997 I served as a Mormon missionary in the jungles of Guatemala and Belize. I had a ton of memorable experiences, and I get to share an aspect of … Continue reading
Salt Lake Comic Con 2017
Earlier this year I purchased booth space at an Artist Alley at a video game convention. It was pretty much a huge disaster. A scene that epitomized the whole experience happened when a shirtless man carrying a giant faux battle-axe … Continue reading

Classic cartoonista – Inversion Incursion
Utah’s pollution-trapping inversions are one of the few drawbacks to living along the Wasatch Front. Here’s a cartoon I did in 2007 for the local newspaper. Since it was created, we’ve gone from the 6th dirtiest air in the nation … Continue reading
A lack of common census
From the Salt Lake Tribune: Census count to exclude overseas missionaries — again “They tried lawsuits and friendly meetings, letter writing and legislation, but in the end Utah’s elected leaders made no headway in their nearly decade-long battle with the … Continue reading
Life is a highway
Careful what you wish for.
The long-awaited Legacy Parkway has opened, easing congestion on I-15. And it only took like forty years of dealing with environmentalists!
I got to participate in a fun project recently: JB Winter‘s 50 States Jam: Izzy Tours America. Basically, Mr. Winter put together the project by having a different cartoonist from every state draw a fore and background around his own … Continue reading
The Clipper declined to publish this one last week because it went counter to the official position of the paper, that is, $145 a month isn’t really that much to pay to ride a train; which is probably true, if … Continue reading
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Apr 14 The proposal by Pearl Exploration & Production to drill for oil about 4 miles from Spiral Jetty has the artist in me competing with the anti-environmentalist wackjob. On one hand, … Continue reading
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Apr 3 The Utah community is still waiting for details in the murder of Hser Nay Moo. I think most parents are as sickened as I am by the decreasing ability to … Continue reading
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Mar 27 I was able to attend my neighborhood Republican caucus meeting a couple weeks ago; it was a much better experience than the previous one. I volunteered to be my precinct … Continue reading
Totally awesome selection?
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Mar 20 If I’m John Huntsman, Jr., I’m loving the competition in this year’s race for Utah governor. Springmeyer looks pretty solid, except that “D” by his name won’t help him anywhere … Continue reading
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Mar 13 Of course, by now, he’s up and working…brrrr!
Just as surprised as everyone else
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Mar 6 When I heard about Utah winning “Best Managed State,”all I could think of was how bad I felt for every other state in the country; maybe I’m just too cynical. … Continue reading
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Feb 28 Yeah, yeah, more immigration. This is a visual depiction of an oft-used comparison to the immigration situation of the United States, and I always thought it was a good one. … Continue reading
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Feb 21 The state legislative session is becoming my favorite time of year for editooning. But anyway, yeah, what’s with those people and dressing their pets? I don’t get it.
Sort of published in the Davis County Clipper on Feb 14 The driver card and in-state tuition bills passed in the Utah house this week likely won’t become law, but, of course, draw cries of racism more than dialogue.
At least there were no dangling chads…
Previously published in the Davis County Clipper on Feb 7 In my previous post I actually underestimated Mitt’s performance in Utah. 90% of the vote is not too shabby, unfortunately he didn’t do so well everywhere else. And now he’s … Continue reading
If this is what change feels like, I’m not impressed
Since the latest polls (and election results seem to be turning out) had Mitt Romney taking 70-80% of Republican votes in Utah’s primary today, I didn’t feel bad about voting for my real first choice on the Republican ballot, even … Continue reading
Not as cushy
Published in the Davis County Clipper on Jan 24 Yeah, yeah, I know our legislature works more than the 45 days they’re in session…at getting re-elected and using campaign funds for their own personal use, anyway.
