Cornered often wanders into “what if” territory.
That can be helpful when you need to think differently or get outside of yourself for a moment.

Eventually, all the excuses, rationalizations, crazy attempts to control or defend lead you here. Cornered, with no way out – you just gotta laugh.

All of which is my way of saying, thanks for popping by, hope you enjoy.

Cornered is a daily colour single panel cartoon. It’s offered to newspapers and online through Universal Uclick across the US and Canada and around the world.

Reprint rights are available through Universal Uclick as well as CartoonStock and Mike Baldwin.

Cornered: verb

Forced into an awkward, embarrassing, or inescapable position.

To trap in a position of great difficulty or hopeless embarrassment.

Yeah, that’s it. We do funny or odd things when cornered. Out of desperation –sometimes quiet desperation.

Cornered finds humour in the situation.

We’re not sure what to do, so we fake it to make it. The results can be quite hilarious.  

Humour gets to go places polite company simply can’t. The results can be awkward, surprising or even helpful and healing. That boil needs to be lanced.

"This Time I Think He's Serious" is my latest Cornered collection. 
Also available in black and white on cream paper for $10 less.

Andrews McMeel Licensing has today’s cartoon as well as my most recent cartoons and a huge archive – and are based in the US. They are the good folks who syndicate my daily cartoon to newspapers around the world as well as online. Most simple-use licenses can be bought online at the site.

CartoonStock and Cartoon Collections are now partners. I’ve been with CartoonStock almost since their beginning and they have always been great people to work with. Joel Mishon who runs the company is a cartoonist himself so knows funny. They run out of the UK.

Cartoon Collections is Bob Mankoff’s baby. Bob was The New Yorker cartoon editor as well as a prolific cartoonist himself.  It’s based in the US. They both have a huge archive of my work, offer quick licensing on most simple uses and have a great search engine.

NOTE: Use the “Advanced Search” when doing a search for my work on CartoonStock or Cartoon Collections. The regular search button at the top right will give you results from their entire cartoon collection – which is fine if that’s what you want (lots of great cartoons) but could be annoying if you are just trying to hunt down one of mine.
