Airport

Continuing the chronicles of the end of Elder Van Dyke's mission, here's a strip where he sees his family for the first time in two years at the airport.

Three Little Pigs

If these missionaries play their cards right, they could have another two discussions just like this one (well, maybe only one more discussion).

Exit Interview

Here's another strip at the tail end of Elder Van Dyke's mission: this one centers around his old MTC companion Elder Ryan. I had so much fun drawing this guy that I kept coming back to him. First in another companionship halfway through Van Dyke's mission and then again at the end.

Summer Camps

With summer in full swing, scout camps, girls camps, and other church camps provide lots of great joke material. Thanks to all of the dedicated leaders that choose to go without air conditioning, a comfortable bed and indoor plumbing to ensure the next generation of camp leaders will know how to do the same.

Sudden Death

For the past two years, my missionary comic strip has been running in the Deseret News. Sadly, that's coming to an end at the end of the month. (This is the problem with a strip tracking a missionary through his two-year mission--it has to end.) I've enjoyed immensely seeing my work in the paper and I'm going to be awfully sad to close that chapter in my cartooning career, but I suppose nothing lasts forever.

Become as a Little Child

Today's gag is the third such gag to feature this philosophizing Elder and the companion that has to put up with all his deep questions. I'm sure there will be more to follow. After all, who hasn't had such a companion during his or her mission?

Teaching Pools

As a missionary, I spent 90 percent of my time fretting over my teaching pool. I doubt there was ever a time during my two years where I was content with the size of it. I suspect if Elder Meyer had ever seen my pool he would have responded in much the same way he does in today's strip.
