Hi. I'm Kevin. I'm Necessary.

Space dog concept-01.jpg

I am a comics journalist and editorial cartoonist for WCPO/9 On Your Side in Cincinnati, Ohio, and a syndicated editorial cartoonist through GoComics.com. I'm also the illustrator of a children's book, My Best Friend Fiona, written by Lucy May. I like space things, bad jokes, and drawing. I live with my wife, Julie, cats Huckleberry, Grayson and Bonnie and would very much like to be your friend (and illustrator).
