Jokes Riddles and Tongue Twisters, Back Cover. Art by Chuck Whelon

Arcturus Publishing commissioned me, through my agent, Beehive illustration, to illustrate this book of extremely old and bad jokes. Perfect!

Without telling me, they later re-issued the illustrations as part of a series of smaller joke books, for sale in the US Market, with my name on the cover, but I did not write the jokes—someone else can take the blame for that! Theses little editions also included a bunch of uncredited art from Shutterstock that I did not do, but they are still very fun for kids. You can buy them on Amazon.com here: https://amzn.to/2VU4eO8

Joking Around Series

Here’s a look at all the images I created for this project… along with the jokes they illustrate… Except I lost the brief for the magic-themed ones at the end, so let me know if you have any idea what they were supposed to be. I guess now one of us will have to buy the books…
