(Cartoonist - KNOTS Cartoons; A Journey Through Christian Theology and the Cartoon Gospel)
Rich DiesslinI’m a fulltime, freelance cartoonist and author doing what cartoonists do - mixing humor, topics of interest and silly drawings to create cartoons. I mostly do single-panel (normal and/or comic strip sized) cartoons on a variety of topics, all family-friendly.

I have three primary areas of cartooning – 1) Christian (Cartoon Gospel and Religious Light series), 2) General (Out to Lunch series) and 3) Scouting cartoons (KNOTS or Not series). However, I also keep busy on freelance projects for the U.S. Scouting Service Project, Leadership Journal, Marian Heath Greeting Cards, various book publishers and others.

My web site is www.the-cartoonist.com and some current books that I have out include KNOTS Cartoons, A Journey Through Christian Theology and the Cartoon Gospel series. Some other background things include a B.S. in Industrial Management from Purdue University and an M.A. in Theological Studies from the University of Dayton and I am a member of the National Cartoonists Society.
