Meet the Author

After he graduated college with a degree in fine arts, John Long became a fireman because he couldn't find work as an art teacher. Having spent 15 years on the fire squad, he now devotes all his time to his art, and to his nationally syndicated cartoon, Lumpy Gravy. When he's not in the studio, he is exhibiting at art fairs around the country. On the rare occasions when he takes a vacation, John and his wife Janet travel to New York City to catch up on museums, galleries, and big city energy. John and Janet divide their time between Ann Arbor, Michigan and a mobile home park in Florida.
