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?

The Longest Relationship

I quietly passed my three-year anniversary of daily cartooning this month.
Didn't even notice since it's so much a part of who I am now.
My first daily was on August 11, 2011. I failed a bunch of times since. But - am still at it. Life imitates art ;)

Update: I'm away for work this week, so no new cartoons.

Instead, I'll be sharing color versions on my Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.

As always, thanks for reading. :)

I brought back a big bruise on my butt. Maybe exactly what I needed.

Taking a short break to attend a conference in the Netherlands.
