Throwback Thursday: A Graduation Card circa 1997
This one goes back to around 1997. A graduation card that I gave to several people back then. Like all work from the past, it could be better. So much of the card bothers me now . . . but I still like the sequential joke and pacing of the card.

Arrrggghhh!
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

Authentic and original pizza and Italian food at its best. My wife's personal favorite is the mushroom funghi pizza. They even provide gluten free options. This little place is a rare gem in Central Jersey.

Nice small restaurant, very crowded when we went around 9PM. You order and pay first, then get seated. You also need to get your own silverware and water before you sit. They bring the food to your flag numbered table. Food is organic and very fresh. Honey mustard was my favorite dipping sause.
