Tenth Anniversary – Nathan Kelly

Tenth Anniversary – Nathan Kelly

Peanizles Turns Ten!!!!

You heard that right. Peanizles debuted online, on July 1, 2009. And to celebrate such a milestone event, celebrity cartoonists and comic industry pro’s have joined the party. Join the festivities and see who comes to the party and pays homage to Chuck, Oliver, Grace, Succotash, Nick, and the whole Peanizles gang.

Nathan Kelly absolutely, positively, blew me away with this rendition of the whole Peanizles Gang, and went so far as to throw this humbled creator in for good measure. Nathan Kelly’s comic book, Drexler, is a masterful space adventure about an assassin that I love, and have had the good fortune to be able to lend my coloring skills to on. Take a second and head on over to Nathan’s Patreon and support hid comic drawing habit, and get some cool goodies for doing so. And the next time you’re at your local comic shop grab a copy of Drexler. And if your local comic shop doesn’t have it, have them order two copies: one for you, and one for the store.


Fan Art Friday – Lyonarda


Well, 2018 has been a busy year for Don, Chuck, Oliver and the whole Peanizles gang, and 2019 is shaping up to be even bigger, and even more exciting! Keep your eyes peeled for all the cool announcements as we’re able to disclose them.

Today, we have a great piece of fan art that was submitted by 12 year old Lyonarda of Lawrence, Massachusetts. Lyonarda created Chuck’s sister (if he had one, that is) and she is almost identical to Chuck. Although the lashes would probably make Grace green with envy.

Great job Lyonarda! Thanks so much, and keep the great work coming.


201Ringo Awards Finalist Voting

Whoa!!!! Thank you so much, everybody who voted for Peanizles in the Ringo Awards 2018, we got on the Ballot! I’m so humbled and overwhelmed with appreciation for each and every one of you fans out there. You are the best fans anywhere. Thank you.

Final voting has begun in the 2018 Ringo Awards, which will be held at this year’s Baltimore Comic Con, one of my person favorite conventions. I won’t lie, we’re up against some serious competition in the Best Comic Strip category: Bloom County, Pearls Before Swine, Mutts, and Sarah Scribbles. All such great, great comics, and cartoonists. I’m humbled to be on the same ballot with them. Now, it’s time to get as many people out there to vote, and convince them to vote for Peanizles. Chuck and the gang would greatly appreciate it.



Fan Art Friday – Like Father Like Son

A few weeks back, I posted a picture of Oliver by Bryan S., Of Dracut, Massachusetts. And the drawing skills and cartooning chops that we witnessed in Bryan’s fantastic drawing, are a direct result of his Dad, David S, who sent in this stupendous drawing of me and Chuck. Thanks so much guys!



Beverly Comic Con 5 – 2018 Edition

This Saturday, April 14th, is the fifth Beverly Comic Con, in Beverly, Massachusetts.

The show is one of my very favorite conventions, and I look forward to it every year (and that’s not because it always seems to land near my birthday). This year, besides my regular comic collections and fun t-shirts, I’ll have the new line of Penaizles hats, which have Oliver featured on a green hat, with white mesh, as well as a flat brmmed, all black snap-back with a grinning Oliver embroidered prominently on the front. I also have mt Cat On The Hat, faturing Grace’s familiar orange cat from her ti-shirt. And the first Peanizles children’s book, “The Day the World Lost It’s Color” will be available.

And if all that wasn’t enough, I’ll be debuting the new prototyes for the first Peanziles plushies, of Oliver and his pet, Dusty, the dust bunny. They look absolutely fantastic, and are super soft and cuddly.

Besides all that I’ll be surrounded by a huge array of diverse comic creators and artists and writers! There’s a a coffee bar, a full bar for the over 21 kids, and a dj. Phew. It’s a blast. And the best part is that it’s free!

So swing by and say Hi
