Boss Valentines

Did some graphics for Valentine’s Day for the “Boss Jocks” at Boss Boss Radio. Check them out on Facebook, too. Next up is St. Paddy’s Day and Easter, and a couple of other ideas I’ve got up my sleeve! 🙂

 

 

More Boss Cartoons

Some more work for the Boss Jocks at Boss Boss Radio (bossbossradio.com) – these two were for Boss Bob, who partners with morning man John Van Camp for a segment about “Lost Hits,” weekday mornings around 7:30.

“Jamey’s Jukebox” is a Saturday night feature on Jamey Karr’s show – songs that SHOULD have been bigger hits than they were. “Vinyl Nuggets” runs from 3-4pm PST every weekday – Wyatt Jennings spins hits from his own collection of actual records!

Stay tuned for more – the hits just keep on coming!

Valentine’s Coffee Sleeves

Done a few of these for La Bou Carmichael – just ask you barista for one!

Valentine Cards

Finally started work on hand-drawn Valentine’s Day cards – the political scene has kept me out of the “mood.” 😦 Stay tuned for more – also planning cards celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love!

Boss Cartoons!

I’ve also been doing cartoons for internet radio outlet Boss Boss Radio (bossbossradio.com) – they’ve got honest-to-God “live” DJs pickin’ and playin’ the tunes and they even take requests over the phones (and online)! I did caricatures (not my strong suit! 🙂 ) of all the “Boss Jocks” for the holiday header on their website as seen below . The coloring and layout was by head boss jock John Van Camp:

I’ve also been doing gtaphics for segments the Boss Jocks do on their shows. For example, Big Mike Cowan who does late nights/morning (depending on what part of the country you live in) has several regular segments featuring “Stupid Joke of the Day,” “Stupid Criminals of the Day,” and “Impossible Trivia”:

There’s several other irons in the fire with this group – they’re a great bunch and all the shows are great! And of course, my wife and I love the music from the 60s and 70s (they’re even starting to mix in some 80s classics). Rock on, Boss Jocks!

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 (bossbossradio.com) and Facebook page. #DAbstonCartoons

Hand-Drawn Holiday Cards Are Still Available!

I sent out (to previously-promised friends) or sold most of the cards I’ve been working on recently – been restocking my “inventory” this week (by drawing more!). Below are some pics of what’s currently available – stop by La Bou Carmichael this weekend if you’d like to pick up one or more – just $5 each. Such a deal!
