Profile Information



My name is Jay DeMarco.

My afternoon job is working in the silkscreen industry. I work for a fun company outside of Boston.  By night (and week-ends), I like to work on my comic strip entitled Small Saves.

Small Saves is a cartoon about all the on-and off- ice adventures of a little youth hockey goalie. The writing is G rated, and fun for the whole family to read.

I've been a goaltender since the age of 5. At age 48, I continue to play with the same passion for the position as I did as a youth.

Writing Small Saves puts all my experiences into a fun context.

I also like to write short stories. They help 'loosen me up' to get the creative juices flowing for the cartoon.

I also enjoy doing freelance illustration, and recently became interested in welding. I now take a class 1 night a week to hone in on this skill.

As a child, I always loved to read. From books about dinosaurs, to Family Circus, I couldn't wait for library day!

My first storybook I ever read was "Tunnel Through Time" with (yep, you guessed it) Dinosaurs in it!

I hope to one day become a successful cartoonist, and that Small saves is known throughout the world.

If you like hockey, or enjoy cartoons, please feel free to stop by for a few laughs.
