Comic Jam

This is a jam comic made by me and three other local cartoonists. We've decided that we are going to start meeting every month to discuss and share our work. These meetings are a blast for me. It's great to talk about cartooning as an art form with a group of dedicated, passionate artists. It's not all business. We have a few laughs as well. I feel like I should introduce these guys as well as comment on our newest jam comic here:

Panel #1: By Brad Campbell. I volunteered to start this time. Usually when I'm sketching, I have no problem coming up with something off the top of my head. Whenever I'm surrounded by these other great artists, I get all nervous for some reason. I decided to go with my strong suit and do something with a cartoon dog.

Panel #2: By Travis Eck. I laughed my ass off when I saw this second panel. There's something about the abrupt shift from a cartoon dog to a hideous beast that cracks me up. Travis does excellent work which can be found at

Panel #3: By Jeremy Johnson. Jeremy introduces a second monster into the mix. I love Jeremy's style. It has a great energy. You can find more of Jeremy's art at

Panel #4: By Jeff Welborn. This is my favorite panel. It's a happy ending for both the dog AND the monsters. The art in this panel is gorgeous. I love Jeff's art and you should too. Check it out here.

I think the coolest thing about this jam comic is that we all drew in our unique styles and it STILL looks consistent. That's pretty cool.


  1. You forgot to mention that you and Travis wanted to KILL ME! To make room for an future members! :o)

  2. I'll make it up to you by serving Chee-tos at the next meeting. ZING!
