My name is Patrick Gillem. I am a cartoonist and somewhat of a comedian. I love nature and and my cartoons reflect that. I also love art and poetry. Since I am a humorist, I write poetry with humor. I am a naturalist, which means that I am interested in and study all of nature as a whole. I love the field of Herpetology, which is the study of reptiles and amphibians.

My hobbies are fishing, boating, kyaking,hiking, cartooning,building metal scuptures and writing.

You can see my cartoons at http://patscnr.blogspot.com/
