Drew is the creator/author/illustrator of the web comics Toothpaste for Dinner and Married to the Sea. He maintains Married to the Sea with the help of his wife, Natalie. Natalie also has her own web comic called Natalie Dee. Drew and Natalie live in Columbus, Ohio where they enjoy the quiet pleasures of the Midwest as they make a living by selling merchandise based on their comics.

Drew also has a selection of videos he's made containing original music that he's also created. They can be viewed at Drew Toothpaste on youtube.

Drew's work is comparable to contemporary artists like Charles Schulz, creator of the comic strip "Peanuts", and Gary Larson, creator of the comic "The Far Side". Drew's comics are also single-frame similar to "The Far Side." Drew's comics and videos may be considered outlandish by some/most people, but his uniquely dry, awkward sense of humor that has resulted from his life in the Midwest is humorous and entertaining to me.

That's all! Go read some comics..
