Tom Ralston is friends with Thom Zajac who owns the Comic News. Tom and Thom had lunch together one day and talked about an ad for the Comic News that would be in the vein of comedy.  Tom Ralston who has a reputation for being humorous thought it would be fun to spin off a series of cartoons for both the Comic News and Tom Ralston Concrete. Tom is has been engaged in creating decorative concrete for over 30 years, with song writing, leading a band and producing musical shows; but now dips his hand into some original “concrete comedy.”

The latest Tommy the Concrete Swami cartoon will be featured in The Comic News and the Spring/Summer 2022 Santa Cruz Magazine.
