Cartoon #6

Shortly after moving to Portland, Oregon, I created a weekly cartoon panel named “OREgroaners.” It was only marginally successful, although I had a lot of fun with the gags, and appeared in a small number of newspapers for a year. I consider myself better at sketching cartoons than scanning the finished pieces. So if the below cartoon looks tilted to you, don’t worry about your eyesight. It is tilted. I plan to share several other of my OREgroaner cartoons in this blog. Cheers!




  1. Thanks for asking, Mary. They only ran for about a year in three small Oregon publications. One was in Clackamas, another along the Coast, and a third east of the Cascades. Again, they didn’t get a lot of traction. However, I sold postcards based on the panel in both Powell’s Book Store and the Made in Oregon Shop for awhile. I’ll post a few more of the cartoons soon. Vaya con nachos!
