I have been drawing cartoons for many years. The title of my cartoon panels is THE

LITE STUFF. The premise of my cartoons is that America has a predominantly

commercial culture.  My cartoons fit right into this culture.  I use the methods of

commercial advertising to look at everyday objects (stuff) and events from a humorous

(lite) perspective. The humor often comes from the interplay between word and object. 

So here goes.

The Lite Stuff

Dec. 11:  This “Brick-a-brac Tree” is a sort of 3D cartoon.  Anjali Athavaley mentioned it in her article on alternative

Christmas trees in the Dec. 10 issue of  The Wall Street Journal. A live cedar seedling grows in the pot on top of the bricks.

Dec. 18: The Peace Stamp is a takeoff of the Love Stamp.  This is the Christmas version.

Dec. 19: Another stamp cartoon.  But hey, it’s Christmas, with lots of cards and envelopes. Actually, the P.O. hasn’t slowed to a snail’s pace.  It’s just being compared to e-mail,  which rhymes nicely with snail.
