Nothing Funnier…

Our little brother (and doctor) Rob already had a pretty damn funny PowerPoint on infectious diseases. But based on this request, we put together this gag comic strip to punch it up. Call this the first three-Gerber-brother collaboration (though as usual, Ken did the drawing and Rob handled the medical diagnosis).

Supper Solution

Personal chef service The Supper Solution hired us to create a corporate logo. Mmm… something smells good…

I Bike

We did some pro bono work for the International Bicycle Fund, creating art for an educational piece on the benefits of biking.

The title illustration:

And another cartoon highlighting one of the benefits (guess which!):

Cat joke

A Cartoon Stand gag…


This one was a live request: Ken’s students know he’s an artist and wanted to see one of his drawings on their final. So prolific mathematician Paul Erdős found himself in caricature form in problem 5 of the Calculus II exam. (Here’s a picture of the man in real life.)
Please show all work for full credit, and continue on the back if necessary.

New People (Commissioned)

Ken drew the art for the album The Easy Thing by the band New People.

Images range from oddball to grotesque (fun either way). When you’re done with the art, be sure to give the free sample album tracks a listen (the music is far less off-kilter than the artwork) — this might be your new favorite band.

Plugging In (Commissioned)

Ken previously drew a logo for the philosophy podcast/blog The Partially Examined Life. Now he’s cartoonified the bloggers as well:

This artwork appeared in Isthmus, a weekly entertainment magazine in Madison, Wisconsin, which ran an article about the city’s podcasting scene.

This is The Cartoon Stand.
Stay a while.

I'm a hired pen.

I draw all kinds of cartoons here, and entirely at your request. I'm talking gags, illustrations, caricatures, logos, gifts, political cartoons... just about anything.

You can suggest an idea for free. If I like it, I'll draw it. Fun for me, free art for you.

Or, if you want to skip to the front of the line and get exactly what you want, you can commission a cartoon. Rates are reasonable and negotiable.

So drop an idea in the suggestion box or place an order. You still just sitting there?
