does cowtoons

Pounce.com's CEO Chuck Smith-Dewey has written and illustrated several bovine tales for kids of all ages, including "Mr. Gonopolis And His 12 Holsteins – A Christmas Story." which has also received airplay nationwide as a radio play and has been produced as a stage play by various elementary schools from Hibbing, Minnesota (birthplace of Bob Dylan) to Annapolis, Maryland.

He published these tales under the psedonym "Uncle Hyggly" ("hyggly" is the Norwegian word for "happy") through another company he founded, Wounded Coot Greetings, whose slogan is "For When You Don't Quite Care Enough, To Send the Very Best." He is also the creator of several comic strips, including "Fishbowl Funnies®" and "Clark Wonderful®."

For the past couple years he's occassionally done original illustratiosn for the front page of the pounce.com site. Here are a few examples (click on the images for larger versions):
