First I went to San Diego Comic-Con international in July, and In October I'll be heading for New York City Comic-Con! Am I nuts or what?

I 'm a freelance cartoonist who does works such as local-issue themed cartoons for the editorial page of the SALEM NEWS in Massachusetts. I'm probably best known for my comic strip FOR ART'S SAKE that was a feature in THE COMICS BUYER'S GUIDE for over 20 years until the publication's end in 2012. I am also active in Muppet fandom as a contributor to the TOUGHPIGS fansite. I wish to use this page to showcase samples of my work both old and new.


Salem News: Recycle Your Butt by Smigliano
Salem News: Recycle Your Butt
I have doubts that I should have submitted this one, and frankly, I'm amazed they published it. Salem is going to set up a hundred of the cabinets pictured below, and frankly, they come off as little more than politically correct ashtrays to me. Most likely people will still prefer to pop them down the gutter or with the other generic trash. I went thru a number of concepts in my head, (including a "recycling butts' gag that would have NEVER fit inside a family newspaper) but I'm still wondering if I should have sent nothing at all rather than this heavyhanded preaching you see here. A good cartoon should be subtle and clever, not outright moralizing. (Maybe I should recycle this cartoon.) From the 10/23/2014 SALEM NEWS.
Good Luck, Fran Brill by Smigliano
Good Luck, Fran Brill
Classic Muppet performer- the first female one after Jane Henson- FRAN BRILL is retiring after over forty years on Sesame Street. Miss Brill was the performer behind the Muppet characters Prairie Dawn and Zoe and has also done several live action film and TV roles as well as voice over work in animation. Good luck, Miss Brill.
