Cloudbase Foundation

The Cloudbase Foundation

One of my favorite charities is the Cloudbase Foundation. The Cloudbase Foundation is a non-profit organization of hang glider and paraglider pilots formed to assist children in the United States and around the world where ever we fly. My latest t-shirt design helps support those efforts. This design was done for the Rainbow Room in Big Spring, Texas along with the 2018 Big Spring Nationals, a big hang gliding event. See the Oz Report for more information. If you are unable to attend the event to get a shirt, you can purchase a copy from my store. Thanks!

Seventeen years in the making. This book is a collection of cartoon strips that were published monthly for seventeen years in publications such as The Concourier, Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly, Go for a Ride, and RoadRUNNER Motorcycle Touring & Travel Magazine. Follow the author as he explores the fun and misadventures of riding motorcycles in many different situations. Bugs, Mother Nature, fellow riders, and mechanical problems make up some of the many situations motorcycle riders find themselves in, resulting in mental and physical road rash. The humorous side of motorcycling is explored on the back of a sport touring bike from the very first ride to the present. The collection contains single panel strips and full page cartoons.The book is available from Amazon, or if you buy it from me directly, you will pay slightly more, but I will autograph the book for you.

It’s a simple formula; cow + rice burner = Cowasaki. If pigs can fly, then cows can ride.  I’ve seen a few of these type cartoons on the Internet and didn’t like any of them, so I came up with my own version.


I’m sure glad cows can’t fly

I ride a Kawasaki Concours C14. Wonderful bike and way more power than I will ever need. It just flys down the open slab. I’m not sure which I like better, hang gliding or motorcycling. Each has it’s own rewards and dangers. Each requires great skill and prescense of mind to stay alive. It’s all good.

Wyoming Prairie Dogs and how to keep them off the road

The problem: Prairie Dogs

Now that winter has passed, we have a new road hazard. Prairie dogs. Each summer, the road becomes littered with wandering prairie dogs. They have absolutely no fear of moving vehicles. They will either run into the path of a vehicle or just stand there and let themselves be flattened without even flinching. If you try and dodge these critters, you could end up in a wreck from trying to swerve. It’s best to just keep moving and try not to think about it. Harry Martin Cartoons Prairie Dog Plow

The solution: WYDOT Prairie Dog Plow

By swapping out the winter snow plow for the summer prairie dog plow, WYDOT hopes to keep the carnage to a minimum. You can help by slowing down. Watch for wildlife. Be safe and be aware. Safe driving to all.

Legal Statement

No prairie dogs were harmed in the production of this cartoon.

Taking ownership of a Kawasaki Concours C10

Road Rash Motorcycle Cartoon #2

I agreed to take ownership without a test ride. Owner would not let me take it for a test spin. Would you? Had no idea what I was getting into. I didn’t really know anything about the bike. All I knew for sure was, I wanted a big bike with a fairing and a lot of power.

Harry Martin Cartoons Road Rash cartoon #2 Taking Ownership
Taking ownership has hidden surprises!

Driving the motorcycle on the way home, I discover problems. The bottom of the tank had a slurry of rusty water and the owner said the tank was topped off. It wasn’t. I ran out of fuel on the way home. I found myself coasting down a big hill until I found a gas station. Lucky me. After getting home, I proceeded to learn the truth about the bike.
