Hello! I’m Kelly Bahmer-Brouse — “Bahmer” is pronounced with a long ‘a’: “BAY-mer”; “Brouse” rhymes with “house.” I was born the year the Beatles came to America in the town where Pepsi-Cola was invented — but I’ve lived almost all my life in the Best Location in the Nation. It’s where I still live, with my husband Andy and our cat Archie.
Back in 1983, (was was then called) the Tribune Company Syndicate named me one of the 10 best college cartoonists in America.
Now I draw, paint, and illustrate whatever happens to be on my mind.
You can keep up with my latest artwork in a couple of ways: WordPress offers the option of subscribing to my latest blog posts via email, and KellyKomics also has its own Facebook page.
When my schedule permits, I also accept commissions to draw, paint, and illustrate whatever’s on other people’s minds. I make personalized greeting cards…
I can also draw or paint your pets, in a realistic style, or in a more cartoon-y way, as you prefer:
If you’d like me to create something for you or someone you care about, drop me a line: kellykomics < at > earthlink < dot > net.

or via PayPal.
Thanks for reading!
