In recent months, this blog has started to feature more and more work by cartoonists.
As it is not unusual for your humble servant and blogger to weigh in on American Politics, many of these cartoons have had some political opinion incorporated into them.
Rick Stevens, however, prefers to weigh in on more technological themes, not infrequently, matters of social media and personalities.
His series, “Diesel Sweeties“, is a perfect example of this and can often be found in the cartoonists’ online magazine, “The Nib“. He also maintains his own website, and you’ll find the URL at the bottom of his cartoons.
His unique style of rendering, almost always in a highly pixelated style reminiscent of an early Atari video game, is merely the most obvious of his many distinctions.
As you will see, he is deeply fascinated by many tropes of Science Fiction and technology. He is also something of a coffee freak and many of his characters are portrayed with steaming hot cups of caffeine-rich goodness in their hands.
He has most graciously consented to permit me to use his work. I sincerely hope you will find it as enjoyable as I do.
