Coffee Sleeves

A few of the recent coffee sleeves I’ve done – stop by La Bou Carmichael and ask for one!

May the 4th Be With You

Hope you had a “safe and sane” 4th of July – here are several graphics I came up with here and there…


Holiday Coffee Sleeves

Here are some of the holiday coffee sleeves I did for La Bou Carmichael, my local java joint. If you’re in the Carmichael area, stop by and ask your barista for one! These cover Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, and “Talk Like a Pirate Day”! I got the idea from fellow cartoonist and Facebook “friend” Jon Murakami, who’s been doing this with his cartooning friends at their local Starbucks in Honolulu. If you make it to Hawaii, stop in at their Honolulu Starbucks – tell them I sent you!





Have a BOSS Christmas!

Worked on this holiday header for Boss Boss Radio – I did the drawings; Bossmeister John Van Camp did the layout and coloring. It’s currently up on their website ( and Facebook page. #DAbstonCartoons


The Card-Making Continues!

I’m still churning out hand-drawn holiday cards at La Bou Carmichael most days – here are some of the more recent ones.If you’re in the area, stop by and say howdy – cards are $5 each – try La Bou’s coffee and yummy treats, too!


More Hand-Drawn Holiday Cards

Been getting a lot of interest in my hand-drawn cards and have sold a few at my local coffee place, La Bou Carmichael. Here are a few more I’ve done in the past couple of days – I’m trying to build up my “inventory” because there are several people I promised I’d do these for last spring and now it’s almost That Time! 🙂

More Coffee Sleeves

Been doing a lot of these at the local java joint (La Bou Carmichael) – my lovely wife has been, too, though hers are much more elegant. If you’re in our area, stop by La Bou and ask the baristas for one – make sure you tip them! 🙂

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…


Working up some designs for holiday cards! Ay caramba!!!


The Holidays are Coming!

Another Halloween graphic – done with Inkscape . It’s starting to remind me of my old CorelDraw!
