3 Postcards For Sale

The first 3 collectible cards from the Rent-A-Ricky sketchbook are now available for purchase. Each card is numbered and signed on the back.
  • Orders for 1 card will be sent as a standard postcard through the US Mail. 
  • Orders for multiple cards will be put in envelopes and mailed together. I'll keep my notes on the backs of these cards to a minimum, so you can mail them to friends later.  
  • If you order multiples and you'd like to receive each card as an individually-mailed postcard, please add a note to your paypal order. I will accommodate.

Card #1: Don Rent-A-Ricky.

Card #2: Joe Madonna.

Card #3: Black and White.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're looking forward to holding a small piece of physical art, from my hands to yours. We can't live on the internet forever.

The Fast Lane

Apollo and Cage Sunday.

Apollo and Cage first appeared in Illinois State University's newspaper, The Daily Vidette, in 1996. The comic was named Best Strip or Panel by the Illinois College Press Association in 1996. The kids seemed to like it, but the comic received multiple rounds of rejection letters from newspapers and syndicates. I graduated in 1997 and the comic continued in The Vidette until Spring of 1998.

I hope y'all enjoyed the weekend reunion. I wanted to see Apollo and Cage again, and I'm the guy with the ability to make it happen. So why not? I spent a lot of time with these guys, back when students read newspapers before class, and the only web comic was Spider-man.
