I started Crusted Salt as a
fulfillment of a dream I once had as a teen growing up
in Cumberland, RI. Back then, I was gung ho, drawing a few dozen comics
with some pens and markers, but then I discovered the magical world
of guitar, and forgot about becoming Don Martin (Mad Magazine) until about four years ago. Playing music in front
of a Cumberland High School audience (filled with the most awesome CHS girls) just seemed more promising and exciting.
When I reached 50 years old, it hit me hard that I was on the lower end of the roller coaster, and that the
flat part when the car rolls to a stop would truly be coming. So, I said to myself, "Jim, time to fulfill some unfulfilled dreams." Cartoonist—check!
For many years, Crusted Salt was connected to the world of running, though from time to time I broke out and made some
strips about other things. A little while ago, I decided to just follow my bliss and decided not make running the framework any longer.
I'd like Crusted Salt to be able to go anywhere.
As seen in my pre-dance vignettes on Dancing With The Cartoonists on The Silly Channel (TSC), my workspace has included a
mixture of tables, chairs, pencils, pens, crayons, markers, bristol board,
a scanner, ancient Macs, Appleworks (now defunct), a cheap Monoprice drawing pad,
open source Gimp software, Procreate, and Art Studio. Obviously, there is a theme of frugality emanating from my "studio."
