Glenn's Bio:

Glenn has been the editorial cartoonist/office curiosity at Maryland’s Patuxent Publishing Co. for the past (gasp) twenty years. He hopes to become computer literate by the end of his career and depends upon his wife and twin teen daughters to explain the hard parts to him. As far as politics go, he was born in a blue state (Massachusetts) and moved to Maryland, yet another blue state. There he married a blue journalist. His children, however, wound up purple. He syndicates his editorial and panel cartoons through Artizans.com and Cartoonstock.com and freelances illustrations whenever he can, for pizza and golf money. For inspiration, he and his dog, Liberty, walk the woods and fields, gaining insight through a constant debate with the local squirrel population. Glenn hates shining the spotlight on himself, never grants interviews and really looks down on the pretentious people who write about themselves in the third person.
