Welcome to Barrel of Grease Monkeys

it is my cartoon that began running in CARtoons Magazine in 2017. Because it is a new comic in development, a paying project and the magazine has a lot of name recognition with automotive enthusiasts worldwide it has been getting most all my attention. Barrel of Grease Monkeys is my series and my first real series, AKA, Not self Published. The monkeys act crazy & looney. Maybe they've spent too much time in a barrel. But they are there to 'help' with car related issues, often with famous people and important events. They are often a force of Karma in the sense that people who deal with them usually get what they deserve.

What is CARtoons Magazine?

CARtoons Magazine came out in the late 50’s and was published/distributed bi-monthly up until the early 90’s. Think of it as Mad Magazine for car nuts. It contains comic strip stories, how to draw, and illustrations from various top name artists reflecting humor within the automotive industry.  Marc Methot, a reader and fan was successful on filing for the CARtoons Magazine trademark and bring the magazine back to life. www.cartoonsmag.com
 

Why do I care and why isn't their More stuff?

Here is the deal, If it were up to me. If making money and keeping the magazine going were not issues. I'd share most everything right away with all of you. obviously, this isn't the case. but, I need to have a place to keep in touch with you. So I will post sketches, promo art, other goodies and sometimes a page for you to enjoy. I'll also keep you up to date on show dates. When new issues come out . Also when I put new products out; mostly via Red Bubble. www.redbubble.com/people
 
The magazine and I are also both active on Facebook.  www.facebook.com/cartoonsmag/  &  www.facebook.com/barrel.of.grease.monkeys/
