Pamo comes up with a grand scheme. “Since I don’t have time to draw all my comics- why not get someone else to do it?”


“You’re kidding, right?”


“You can’t let someone else draw your comics Pamo.”


“But you do have a secret photo weapon that will always make people laugh.”

Idea5And that secret photo weapon is………..




Cindy (our dog) chimes in. “Way to go Mom!”


And just in case that didn’t get a smile…..


Until next toon, er, I mean photo, or toon, or photo……




boys-facesA few nights ago I fired off an email to Brad Perri, creator of Pirate Mike. I keep up with Pirate Mike so I knew Brad was working on his website design. As soon as Brad landed back on a WordPress.com site I figured he’d have some thoughts about my own web design conflict.

In my email to Brad, I told him about my upcoming move to a ComicPress site and then proceeded to list out all the reasons ComicPress wasn’t working for me. I figured with his recent return to WordPress, he would have a sympathetic ear. In fact, he encouraged me to post about the conflict I was experiencing in making the move to another site.

Brad wrote back in part: “I think [followers] are interested in the story of your journey as a comics artist. And that story isn’t just something you tell, it’s also something that comes through in how you tell it, the delays, the reversals, the drawbacks, the obstacles, etc. Hence, they are also interested in hearing about your obstacles….  our audiences want to know about the process because they probably have a process of their own as well! So they can relate.”

As soon as I read his return email, I knew he was right on the mark.  As some of you already predicted (Frag and Tony) I’ve changed my mind and reversed my decision. Surprise. (I’m staying RIGHT HERE!)

PW-AYep- I drew that comic two years ago. I’m officially repeating myself.

At this point, feel free to make your own face at me. Just make me laugh why don’t you?

In my last convoluted blog post, I explained that I was moving to a site that would be more comics centered and less personal. Bahahahahahahaha!

I was feeling vulnerable and thought making my site less about me and my real life would be safer. But the truth is- Pamo’s World has always been very personal. When I took the personal out of Pamo’s World, I also removed much of the joy. It took me awhile to figure that out.

I could blather on but I think you get the gist.

It’s been a rough few months creatively speaking but the light is on and I see friendly faces waving in the distance. There you are! And you! And you! And you! Great faces y’all!

Here's my face right back at ya.

Here’s my face right back at ya.

And of course... Jeff.

And of course… Jeff.

Until next toon,




PamosWorldThe Pamo’s World crew is alive and well and moving soon.

If you follow this blog, I’ll be transferring you with me. It shouldn’t hurt at all and you shouldn’t have to do a thing. (Let’s hope!)

I’ve set up a Facebook page HERE and a Twitter feed HERE… if you are on either of these platforms, I’d love for you to follow along with Pamo’s World.

My first Pamo’s World book is finished and on Kindle. You can see it HERE. If you have Kindle Unlimited you can get it for free. If not, you can join me on Facebook or Twitter and in another week or so, I’ll be giving the book away for FREE for a very limited time.

Since spring of this year, I’ve dropped off the webcomic scene. It’s been a tough time. Jeff and I lost two of our dogs and one of our cats to cancer. All of them lived long lives and we are very grateful for the time we had with them. But those losses put us both into an extended tailspin that we are only just starting to recover from. In the list of things to do, updating my webcomic fell to the bottom of the list.

Even though I wasn’t updating online, I did continue to write and draw and make plans for Pamo’s World. I’ve decided it’s time to move to a more traditional webcomic site (which is probably becoming an outdated concept). None the less….

The new site is structured different than this WordPress blog. It’s more comic centered and much less personal. The biggest change is that I won’t be hosting comments there. It’s a time issue. If I have any hope of updating on a regular basis, I must limit my time tending to and making comments. It’s been one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make especially knowing that it could be a wrong one.

Not hosting comments on my new site is one of the main reasons I’m going back to Facebook and Twitter. It will allow for interaction for folks that want it without requiring a lot of time on anyone’s part. At least that’s the hope.

In the past, social media has been a bit of a rat’s nest for me. But I’ve learned a lot and have figured out how to set boundaries. At the risk of upsetting my women friends, I’m trying think more like a man. Men, in general, don’t sit around and worry about comments and responding and not hurting feelings.

Of course I could be wrong about that.

Anyway, that’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

I hope you’ll enjoy the new Pamo’s World format. I’ll be making the switch in the next few days.

Thank you all!!!




My Webcomic JourneyWhat’s up?

Okay- to be completely honest, I don’t usually say, “What’s Up?” But after slacking off on ye ole blog for so long it’s all I’ve got. (Uh- “ye ole” isn’t something I say either but I’m struggling here.)

I’ve posted the not-sure-it’s-the-final-image of the cover for my upcoming comic book. Cool, right?! Publish date is going to be late summer or fall.

Or next year.

I’m still having commitment issues. I’ve typed and deleted words for this blog post for a couple of hours. Ha- I should probably do a comic about it!

Anyway- I’ll keep you updated.

I’ve opened comments back up- so check in when you can and say hello. I’d love to hear from you.

Until next toon,




My friend Richard and me with the comic I drew.

My friend Richard and me, Pamo.

A few weeks ago a friend asked me to draw his daughter’s favorite joke. Here’s the joke:

  • Two dinosaurs watch Noah’s Ark float away. One turns to the other and says, “Was that today?”

Seemed simple enough but I discovered the joke had already been drawn by another artist. You can see that comic by CLICKING HERE. (This comic shows up in many places on the internet but I can’t find a website for the creator. I just wasn’t comfortable reproducing it here without permission.)

I then decided to go full blown Pamo style with cats and a positive ending. This is where Jeff stepped in and earned equal billing in the creation credits. We talked it through over several versions until finally I was happy with it. Finally!

dino toon finalYay comics!

Until next toon,
