Tim Murray New Sabres GM

regier plus swanson equals murray

It looks like Pat LaFontaine has found his GM, and it’s Tim Murray. Murray comes from the Ottawa Senators, where he was an assistant GM. Really, I don’t have an opinion on this hiring really. I just hope Murray is aggressive, and not afraid to make a bold move here & there. Ottawa has a good stable of young players, who up until this year performed excellently. If I’m Murray, I’d sign Ryan Miller & Steve Ott to some nice extensions as my first orders of business. Then I would remove the interim tag off of Ted Nolan, and attempt to lure Benoit Hogue out of retirement. If Hogue doesn’t want to come back to be the #1 Center the Sabres desperately need, I’d turn my efforts towards Dave Snuggerud. Snuggerud would cost a mint, but I could then use him as a bargaining chip to acquire Sidney Crosby from the Pens. Pittsburgh is really in the market for a defensive minded forward with a great mullet, and Snugerrud is an all-time league leader in Mullet Corsi. Then, with Crosby in the fold, I’d bump up Ellis & Porter to play as his wings, and watch the Stanley Cups roll in. After each cup winning victory, I’d arrange to have Cotton Eye Joe blare on repeat until everyone got to hoist the cup. Get to work, Murray.

What the Frank?!


My wife and I recently completed a marathon session of ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ on Netflix. Frank Reynolds is my favorite part of that show, so I decided to illustrate him. Here are the end results!

Caricature of myself

Here is a caricature I did of myself for a project that wasn’t used. I was pretty happy with it, so I figured I’d post it up here. The caricature captures my goofiness/doofishness/awesomeness/bald.

If you or someone you know may be in need of a cartoon caricature version of themselves, contact me (Click HERE if you’re too lazy to go up to the top of the screen) and I would be glad to discuss it. Cartooning, and caricatures in particular, has always been a favorite pastime of mine, and I would welcome a chance to do more of it.


fitz magicThis little graphic I did last year for Nick Mendola is catching on like wildfire. I’m getting plenty of inquiries about it, so I decided to make some shirts. Since some of you jerks are stealing my art and selling these shirts anyway, I figure I may as well be the jerk selling them. I have struggled with the idea of getting back into shirts for a while, but the demand is such that I feel like this may work better than my last foray into the apparel world. Also, rumor has it that Ryan Fitzpatrick has seen this on a shirt already, and loved it. So, let’s do it. GET A SHIRT HERE

••NOTE: I had to change & clean the design up a bit for shirt production.
