Use Cartoons on T-shirts.
Events can't be called true events unless they have official T-shirts, and t-shirts with personalized cartoons on them are the T-shirts preferred by 9 out of 10 people stranded on a desert island.
Holy Rollers: Murder and Madness in Oregon's Love Cult, published by Caxton Press, is my first book of literary nonfiction. It's a story that has everything a good read should have: sex, religious fervor, mass insanity, the downfall of prominent families, murder & sensational court trials. AND it's all true.

In addition to cartooning I paint watercolors and draw scientific illustrations. My series titled UnNatural History is a combination of all three. Someday they will be part of a book that's a whimsical look at my life as a naturalist.
I'm an award winning naturalist. Want a few laughs & learn about the local flora, fauna & history on your next visit to the central Oregon coast. Rent me.

The most frequent question I am asked is, “Do you draw for the New Yorker?” to which I reply, “Yes. In fact I’ve drawn three covers for them … although they’ve never had the good sense to buy any of my work.”
The second and third covers I drew appeared on their web site, but it really isn’t a big deal. I entered them in the 2011 & 2012 Eustace Tilley Book-Bag Contest and anyone who bothered to upload an image had something appear on their web site. I even uploaded something my five-year-old nephew, Alex Charles Herlofsen, drew.
Here's the first New Yorker cover I drew just for the fun of it in 1984. It hangs in my bathroom.
Here's the drawing my nephew, Alex, and I drew that I uploaded for the 2011 Eustace Tilley Book-Bag Contest. It's titled, "Wulture by Alex, Butterfly by Crazy Eccentric Aunty T-." I'm hoping he'll take over my cartooning business someday and now he can honestly say he had something in the New Yorker ... or at any rate, something on their web site.
It is a collection of 100 of my most popular cartoons, including Lemming Suicide Hotline, Dorothy selling the Tin Man to a recycling center, and Druids changing to Daylight Saving Time.
