Pick up this comfortably sized collection of comic strips to take a walk down Smith Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota where you'll find the small world of Big Time Animation Studio. You'll encounter an intelligent, witty world of dilligent worker-artist pigs, dreamer artiste cats, grumpily practical business owning ducks, a jazz-playing frog and various dark phantoms. They all seek escape from the dull darkness of repetition through their art, love, and general orneriness. Serious, silly, and existential (whatever that means!), this just might be the thing you're looking for. Ok, it probably will be. No, wait, it is!
I've been drawing all my life. One of my earliest memories is of drawing a stickman on my parents staircase wall with a black crayon. I drew cartoons and wrote for the the Onion in its earliest days. I did a couple animated shorts that appeared on MTV. I have worked the same job for 20 years. My wife and 2 cats now tolerate my own Big Time Studio that resides in our compact apartment.
