The artist, Jeff Hobbs, is new to this blog; he’s given to plays on words, however.

From his website:

When I’m not working my full time “job” you can find me cartooning, watching mixed martial arts, playing guitar, playing husband to my wife, Lisa & playing daddy to my kids, Lucas and Maci, in Elizabeth, Indiana.

My cartoons appear regularly in the Funny Times newspaper: http://funnytimes.com/

(#4)
