A man of many gifts and activities – master cartoonist, filmmaker, artist, teacher and stand-up comic – his cartoons are regularly published in Santa Fe’s newspaper and always reflect “the irony native people feel and express in humor”, according to a peer.
His colorful paintings are original cartoons made for us, and are hilarious, sometimes with a little bite to them but always good-humored.
With vibrant color and a wickedly accurate wit, he presents recognizable human situations that relate to Native and non-Native interactions.
Here, the Natives communicating via smoke signals are astounded by the reaction across the desert – a volcano, belching fire, as well as copious smoke!
The caption says it all, and is an instant smile-maker – if not laugh-out-loud.
We all have experienced communications that produce an explosive response, and often a by-stander will have the same response, whether to smoke signals or smart phone.
Keep this on your wall, and keep on smiling!
