In a highschool sketchbook, was merged the mythical unicorn with a tiger... thus creating an amalgam that represents two natures: Idealistic Fantasy and Fierce Reality—TIGRIKORN. He treads the line between competing worlds and ideals; a bit of a misfit, his adventures are chronicled here. Welcome to Issue # 15 of Tigrikorn! I’m sorry that this issue is even later than usual. Although most of this edition’s features have been online for the last few weeks (Since February). Check out TigriKorn #15 Online at: The student work for this issue is from my Fall 2000 Cartooning Classes. This edition is full of their toons but there is even more online ---and some in full color! I hope you enjoy the mix of comix art in the following pages.

Friends of Lulu is the site of a great organization devoted to encouraging girls and women cartoonists. Convention dates, great links and other resources are found there.

You can link to the above sites from the Website Faves section of:


Lately, I’ve been listening to the cd relient K by the band of the same name. Relient K has a great sound.

relient K

Musically they are a bit like Weezer but with a Christian philosophy. The two songs I like best are “Marilyn Manson Ate My Girlfriend” and their remake of the themesong from the 80s TV sitcom “Charles in Charge”. Fun band. They are on tour right now in the US. Their cd is put out by

Gotee records. Check out their site at: Their site has up-to-date tour notes, cool links and downloadable videos and songs. and their record label site is awesome too: (with lots of flash files and cool links)

I got the above photos from their fan sites which you can link to from their main site.
