So, Chad Carpenter decided law enforcement was the path he would take, until he got a little encouragement from an instructor and he decided to leave the trooper academy and take up cartooning full time. After getting “Tundra” off the ground in Alaska and hustling state fairs, his passion started to take off, making it into over 500 newspapers nationwide so far.
