So, we had a fun week of busting out some random jokes and making fun of weird things in a weird way. And, this week, I have discovered that most readers prefer to read Fred going through longer form stories. So, starting this coming Monday, we are pleased to announce that Fred's new story Fred the Mustard Packet Spins a Sign will begin. It's going to be another weird and wild roller coaster ride of a story as Fred attempts to become the best sign spinner on Earth!

Last week, we saw the sweet Auntie Relish again. We also had a lot of weirdness, we decided to bend the universe a bit and it was fun going on a trip down Absurd Lane.
We even had Fred create a "scented" webcomic. There was a contest held for people to photograph themselves actually smelling the comic. Cameron Davison was the only one who had the courage to do it. So, he won. Also, he is a sensational writer. Check out his website at the link below.
This week has been Eyeball Week. Each comic this week has prominently featured eyeballs as a part of the gag. You know, we're back to normal.
Subscribe, read, and enjoy Fred at the link below.
Thank you for the support and for sharing the cartoons that connect with you. It's fun hearing about how specific lines, moments, and images from Fred affect you our loyal audience.
We heart you guys and we want to hug you 'til you fart!

This week has been pretty autobiographical.
We had my Auntie Jo's b-day happen this week. Also, I did the open mic and the one-liner joke contest for the Bird City Comedy Festival. And, I'm facing teaching origami in my art classes in the near future.
So, the cartoons reflect all of that. I was honored with another Twitter like from Jamie Kennedy. I guess he likes reading about people bombing on stage. I got all kinds of love from my aunt and cousin for Monday's cartoon. And, I have a strange feeling of satisfaction in myself when I read today's cartoon mockery of myself.
Oh, and this past Thursday (yesterday), I was featured on the Arizona Artist a Day Blog by Shelley Whiting. It was a great honor and it was fun seeing Fred featured on such a classy blog.

This week on Webtoons.com we featured a week's worth of Fred the Mustard Packet's comics to the theme of the might monster movie show host.
My Dr. Zombie character was first created to serve that purpose. In 2009, I noticed that Phoenix had a hole in the entertainment market. There were no active monster movie hosts. So, the wonderful folks at the Trunk Space indulged me in filling that hole.
Dr. Zombie was born October 31, 2009 at the old Trunk Space with a hilarious screening of Plan 9 From Outer Space. Many more monster movie screenings occurred with Dr. Zombie at the Trunk Space and other fine venues. We had costume contests, acting contests, pumpkin carving contests, and sensational musical guests like The Slow Poisoner and Space-Alien Donald. In 2011, Dr. Zombie even got one of those Best of Phoenix Awards from The Phoenix New Times for Best Horror Movie Show.
Come on, local Phoenix TV! You could've had me! I would have brought in about a dozen viewers every week! That's money in the bank.
Then, in 2012, another person came in to help fill the monster movie host void. And... well... he did a better job than me, and continues to do so. One of my good friends was bitter for me, but I'm actually not. The man who does the monster movie hosting now loves it more than I ever did. He is film through and though, 100%.
However, I'm many things, comic books, puppets, improv shows, stand up comedy, etc. I've managed to bring Dr. Zombie and his sci-fi/ horror antics into multiple outlets.
In October of 2016 we did do one last film screening, we did it in a Super Saver Cinema. It was perfect. Thanks to everyone who attended that show.
Remember, Dr. Zombie isn't gone. He's just undead, and he's doing monstrous loads of other things! In fact, to support him, you can buy his Kindle Comic Book and his card game right now. Join in the fun!
Below is the link to the card game...
Below you will find the link for the Kindle comic...

Thank you all for the support you've given to me and all of my creative projects. Thank you for reading this and being opening to new entertaining adventures.
All the best,

I'm not much of a sports guy. It's true. I'm not against sports, I'm normally not interested in them. However, I do like baseball. While I was in my teens, twenties, and a piece of my early thirties, I was into hockey. When I went to U of A, I loved attending the few Ice Cats games that I was able to get to. In the NHL, I was primarily a fan of the Coyotes and the Devils.
But, then I got a good look into baseball. Arizona finally got it's own MLB team around 1997, the Diamondbacks. And, their uniforms were purple! PURPLE! (It's my favorite color) Five years later, they won the world series. However, it was many years later, when my family attended an opening day D-Backs game to celebrate my dad's birthday. That's when I really became a fan. I don't know why it all hit my senses the right way at the right time, but it did. I had attended sports games of numerous types at numerous levels before, but that experience just filled me with joy. The colors, the weird music, the scoreboard animations, the food, the lemonade, the merch, the overall branding, the sound of the announcer's voice, the sight of families being happy together, people celebrating. "This is art, this is theatre", I thought. And, I was right. It's entertainment.
That season or the season after, my dad bought a giant package of tickets. I, and many friends and family got to attend numerous D-Backs games. Win or lose, it was always a fun party. Baseball is relaxed, unlike hockey. I'm more relaxed than I was in my youth, go figure. So, I appreciate a sport where I can get up, buy a churro, and not miss much.
I know that the D-Backs aren't much to speak of these days, but the spectacle of it all is a grand display of athleticism, design, organ music, and artery clogging snacks.
Baseball, it's my game of choice.
Thanks for reading,
PS- The NY Yankees and Mets are cool too.
