And Now, For Something Completely Different

I am immensely fortunate in so many ways. Greatest of all is my family. Earlier this month, my wife and I renewed our vows in the ceremony we had always wanted. Of course, I’m quite concerned about the judgment of any woman crazy enough to marry me twice. Shelly has been incredibly supportive and is the biggest cheerleader for my cartoons. Having someone in your corner means a lot when the going gets tough, and she’s never faltered in her support.

Two of the finest warriors I’ve ever known and with whom I’ve gone into harms way stood with me during the ceremony – thank you Ed and Dave – your presence made the day extraordinary.

The ceremony just concluded, and Shelly and I are heading out to greet our guests as they enter for the reception.

My background is a bit far afield of what you’d expect for a cartoonist, but whatever the events that led me here, I’m happy this is the result.

Thank you to all who follow my work and make every day a pleasure to be a cartoonist.

Cheers!

  1. Bill,

    You and your wife are a handsome couple. Congrats! I was a little worried you were going to spill that drink on you when that little boy was pulling you to the dance floor. Wouldn’t look good on that white outfit.

    We in the cartooning world come from all walks of life and careers. I’ve been a CPA and cartoon gag writer at the same time for many years.

    Congratulations, Bill. Like you, my cartooning career followed military retirement–mine was from the Army. Glad to see other cartoonists share a military background. I enjoy your work, you have a great style.
