A Comic's Comics: Charlie Ballard on Rez Dogs, R. Kelly and Redskins


Charlie Ballard, Sac and Fox, is a standup comedian who's appeared on Comedy Central and Logo, and he regularly hosts the Hella Gay Comedy Show in various locations around San Francisco. 

Does success as a comic -- meaning a comedian -- imply you'll be any good at drawing comics -- meaning cartoons? That's what Charlie Ballard aims to find out. He's been scribbling out some one-frame cartoons and posting them online. While his draftsmanship can't quite compete with that of Marty Two Bulls, there is a certain charm to these eyeless Natives trading quips about mascots, R. Kelly, and Candy Crush. We'll be watching Ballard's blog, charlieballard.blogspot.com, to see where this goes.

Charlie is no Rembrandt, but I like his cartoons and would buy a book of them.
