I’ve been planning to do a bit more with my blog than posting some of my cartoons that are published with several of my regular clients, and I guess this blog entry marks the beginning phase of those plans. I’m starting a new section on the blog, and as indicated above, it’s called Pencils To Pixels.
I want to use this segment of my blog to share more with my readers about how I got started in cartooning, the tools I use to create my comics (thus the title), how I manage the business side of cartooning, and many other aspects of the cartooning business, including tutorials, and tips for beginners.
For my first entry, I’ll be posting an article in the coming week about United Business Media, a significant client of mine who really changed things for my cartooning career in the past few years. I think it’ll serve as a good example for young cartoonists as to how you can secure work, and how one job can lead to many others, so stay tuned and check back here later in the week:)
My first November cartoon for Medical Economics has just posted, and it deals with those litigation-plagued patients who can make things difficult for a practicing physician to make it in today’s world of medicine.

My second cartoon for the October installments of Medical Economics deals with the problems physicians face in the early phase of their careers, and throughout as well. Would a Scared Straight program steer some pre-med students away from the medical profession? If you are a medical professional, knowing what you now know, what would your advice be to a pre-med student?

One of my September cartoons for the Physician’s Practice site features the panic situations practices can get into if they’re IT staff is unavailable or (worse!) nonexistent. Check out the cartoon and leave a comment here or on the PP site. There are many other great articles there as well for the medical community.
My August cartoon has just posted on the Medical Economics website, and it’s another jab at the one and only Donald Trump. This cartoon marks the beginning of my new partnership with Medical Economics on both their website and in their print magazine.
