I tried to run a small bakery in my home for a little while. I figured it would be a good platform to build a small home business doing things I love to do so I got creative with both baking and art combined. I called it Cartoon Kitchen and my tag line was the art of a baker. It did well enough but I wasn’t able to keep up to the demand for my homemade bread without a large dough mixing machine so I shut it down. In developing my kitchen I created my cartoons and started writing comedy style recipes and ingredient labels. For fun I continued to write, sketch and teach myself how to produce my cartoons on the computer. I still bake for not for sale. I garden and have discovered the joys of backyard chicken farming. I’ve designed greeting cards, shopping lists, calendars, books and the list goes on. Hope you enjoy it here and have some fun
Getting published is easy. I got all the necessary ingredients, computer, printer, paper, binding machine, plastic bindy things, taught myself a few computer skills, designed my stuff, printed out the pages bound them up together for use and sale. That’s what published means to me?
My Perfect Cookbook; It has recipes, budget forms, house cleaning sheets, and a pet section with recipes and a petsitting checklist. It’s a colorful book with lots of humor.
This is a baby dog book album I did up for something to do. It is also very colorful and very funny.
This is a little notebook I made. It is also bound and has lined pages inside. It’s for keeping notes (duh)
Here is one of my graphic envelope designs. I really do use it and others I’ve made when I send mail. I don’t use the Promise part, that would be crazy.
