As a personal pursuit, Bob co-publishes Heeby Jeeby Comix along with David DeGrand, Chris Houghton, and Dan Moynihan. It is an all-ages comic book with spooky, goofy comics in the vein of those found in the defunct Nickelodeon Magazine. It was Nickelodeon Magazine’s demise that inspired these former comics contributors to collaborate on Heeby Jeeby with the intent to fill the kid-friendly cartoony comics void.

Bob’s personal cartoon world is full of rubbery and hairy big-eyed monsters that could live comfortably between Dr. Seuss’s and Jim Henson’s creature universes.

    This guy, Dave Cooper and Nick Cross all embrace a drawing style that you can actually smell. How many drawists can say that? … not many more I’d venture. Hat’s off indeed

  • thermoplasticity

    I would say Basil Wolverton and Dave cooper.

  • Love Bob’s work, thanks for sharing!
