WELCOME! This blog is a personal project I started in August 2011 with the goal of drawing and posting an illustrated status message a day - I haven't stopped since. On weekday mornings, I get up, draw a cartoon, and post whatever I can manage to before going to work. I began cartooning to find my voice. Still searching, but I've learned that the attempt is everything. What's your status message today?

When Galaxies Collide

Friendship: a poem :)

Sometimes I can't believe how lucky I am to know the people I do.

It's Complicated

FUN NEWS: My idea for a comic strip column was picked up by McSweeney's!
It will be about the creative process and is called "How to Find Love: Lessons from an Old Maid." This is either an amazing opportunity or I've made a terrible mistake.  Huge thanks to McSweeney's for the honor & congrats to fellow contest winners!

The Thing About Passion

This is less a comic strip and more a note to self. Also: have not figured out how to draw Mike Rowe.

Happy Friday :)
