Daily Quick Sketch: Octopi Emojis
Here's an idea I played with about a year ago, simply a grouping of several octopus emojis doodles.  Sampling of several octopi emojis made with a brush pen I'm not a fan of emojis. I rarely use them. But there seems to be a huge Internet following for emoj...

Daily Quick Sketch: Doggie Doodle
Found this doodle among pages in a lined paper pad. I don't remember doing this image, so it's a true doodle. A typical dog doodle with may features I usually draw. It's really just a smaller and more compact version of my character, Woger (from Bobby's Big...

Introduction

Hello! My name's Jim Romer, but you can call also me Arrrggghhh!

I've been a cartoonist, animator and toy designer for over 25 years. Back in 2006, I started my own company and began working with Tom's Toy International in China: designing toys, costumes and pet products for mass market retailers like Target, Wal-Mart and PetSmart.

In 2012, I wrote and illustrated my first picture book, “Bobby’s Biggest Bubble", which was self-published and financed through KickStarter. Several months later, it was reviewed in Publisher’s Weekly on Feb 18th, 2013

I hope to someday find a publisher for my other whimsical tales, such as:
Little BAD Riding Hood: What really happened in those old classic fairy tales?
Whazzit: The wintry tale about a mysterious blue object found in a mystical place near Grandma's forest.
Worm-Wired Glasses: A whimsical tale about a little monster with very poor eyesight on Halloween night.

I currently live in central New Jersey with my lovely wife Carla, and our two overly hyper attention-seeking Australian Cattle Dogs. I love creating stories and characters that make children laugh and use their imagination.
Please feel free to contact me by email: books@arrrggghhh.com
