(Cartoonist and brother to Phil)
I was born in Omaha, Nebraska, and in the summer before my senior year of high school, I was struck by lightning. My mom wanted to take me to the hospital.
Instead, my dad gave me Jack Daniels. Soon after, my cartoons began showing up daily in the Omaha World-Herald.
My work now appears in over 850 publications around the globe and…around the globe. Literally. My original drawings have flown in space and exhibited all over the world.
