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.

May 27:  This cartoon originally appeared in Schoolcraft College’s math publication “The Right Angle.” A mathematician told me the third cup should be labeled 3, not 1.  But the cartoon works both ways.

“THE DREAM”   This appeared in the Rochester Erotic Art Festival.  Not a cartoon but sort of cartoonish, especially if you think of Rousseau’s “The Dream” with its exotic nude woman reclining on a couch in the jungle.
