The Argyle Sweater has sold nearly 1 million greeting cards through American Greetings, and more than 100,000 2011 calendars.
With more than one million greeting cards sold, Scott Hilburn's The Argyle Sweater dresses-up the funny page with an argyle-wearing assortment of cavemen, bears, moths, and pompadour-having humans, along with an occasional evil scientist. Boasting a readership ranging from The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times to the Calgary Herald, Hilburn's colorful cartoon panel fuses his visceral talent and bold pen stroke. What results is a cerebrally astute cartoon panel that comments on popular culture, human nature, and sporks in a clever, spontaneously rich way.

The Ice Bringers <p> Main Clan Cluster: The main Clan cluster is a large clearing that circles around an irragularly shaped rock. The rock is shaped sort of like a cat face. Fallen trees, bushes, rocks, and many ages of cats piling their dirt up in the corners has created four seperate clearings, all with an entrance to eachother. <p> The Ice Bringers' Camp <br> The Ice Bringers live in a camp where jagged white rocks and fur make the ground smooth and strangely textured. The rocks were placed there by cats who hated the feel of the dirt and wanted their camp to look more like their name suggests. <br> Highrock <br> Highrock is another jagged, white stone that peaks out of the ground. It has a stick structure (built by the Living Green Trees, of course) that allows leaders to stand without killing themselves on the sharp stone. <br> Leader den <br> In the stick and wood structure is a place where the leader can be completely dry. <br> Nursery <br> A large outcroppig of the wall does just fine. They planted a bush there, so that the wooden plank above them isn't the only warmth they have. The ground is covered with skins and furs of everything they could find. When you die, they skin you and put your fur in the nursery or on the nursery walls. <br> Deputy den <br> The deputy lives under the ground in a chamber where he/she can walk to any den and simply listen. The leader also has access to this, andit prevents spies quite well. The tiny holes are very small. <br> Med den <br> Directly next to the nursery is the med den, the herbs that the medcat uses are what the den is made of, clinging stubbornly to eachother with mounds of extra cobwebs. <br> Aprentice den <br> The aprentices get to sit in an old, dried out, musky smelling bush that has no leaves and is out where the most rain hits. Prisoners are also kept here. Everyone can see everything and hear everything, which makes it harder for prisoners to escape. <br> Warrior den <br> Warriors live in a rock that is half underground and slants. They have to endour the slant and the giant step up, but it is so well protected that during giant battles, all four Clans swarm into the one camp to put the kits into this warrior den. Every cat has to crouch to get in, and they always make a clink with their claws when they do. <br> Elder den <br> The elders get a den under the med den, where they have no worries. <p> History: <br> Since none of the four Clans have ever broken apart and attacked eachother, there isnt much to say. Whenever they are attacked, they team up and attack the enemy. Spies are practically eliminated completely because so many cats are constantly watching from every corner. <p> Special skills <br> Thick fur to withstand cold tempatures <br> Strength <br> Bravery <br> Pride <br> Helpfulness; they always try to help the other Clans of Four Mark.
