Well, my Once Upon A Platypus: Beginnings book is done and the final files have been uploaded to the printer! Now to wait for two looong weeks!

Awesome News #2!
Posted by Ron on August 1, 2013
As mentioned a couple weeks ago, I've designed a cartoon mascot that will be used in the branding of a famous vocalist from the '70s-'00s. Hint: His rock 'n roll tenure has included two bands and several stints as a solo artist. Between the bands, there have been numerous awards won and many singles topping the charts! One of the songs highlighting his amazing vocal skills is still a classic rock radio staple!


Awesome News #1!
Posted by Ron on July 31, 2013
My Pete & Pig comic that's available in my book Toon It Up Comic Tales #1 and was posted a couple weeks ago on my pal Pete the Planner's blog, caught the attention of a large financial institution that has an interest in me working with them on a project. I don't know any more than that yet but will update everyone when I do...


The Platypus Comes Alive!
Posted by Ron on July 25, 2013
I've been out of the loop a little as I work on my initial issue of Once Upon A Platypus. Out of 21 pages, 15 pages are inked and 7 colored. It's looking good for it to be in my hands in time for the Cincinnati Comic Expo.

Pete & Pig Blogged!
Posted by Ron on July 16, 2013
My Pete & Pig short story from Toon It Up Comic Tales #1 made an appearance today at the blog of Pete the Planner, Líil Peteís namesake! Check out the story as well as the rest of Peteís site! Heís a financial GENIUS!


He's Being Drawn For The Last Time!
Posted by Ron on July 15, 2013
Not sure if I mentioned it before but I've been working on a cartoon mascot design for a famous singer from the '70s-'00s and it was finally given a thumbs up! More details coming soon...

The Chronicles Of Reddick!
Posted by Ron on July 15, 2013
Garfield and Legend Of Bill Cartoonist David Reddick stopped by the Indy Toy & Comic Expo and posted some of his finds on Facebook! It was great to see you again, David, and thanks for stopping by and picking up a couple of my books!

Inking Platypi!
Posted by Ron on July 12, 2013
Inking started on the first 21 pages of Once Upon A Platypus this morning. Hopefully, it will be done by next week so I can start adding color. That's what will take the longest...

What A Sweet Birthday!
Posted by Ron on July 4, 2013
Happy 50th Birthday to Stryper's Michael Sweet!


A Taste Of Toon It Up!
Posted by Ron on July 3, 2013
I made three mini-comic samplers to give con-goers an idea what each of my books is about. They're even color-coded to match their corresponding books. I'm some kind of genius! They'll make their debut at the Indy Toy & Comic Expo on July 14th!


17 Down...!
Posted by Ron on July 1, 2013
Seventeen pages of Once Upon A Platypus are pencilled. Four more to go and then the inking begins! The prologue and first 1 (or 2) chapters are set to debut in print at the Cincinnati Comic Expo in September!
