WELCOME!

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?

A Status Message a Day #5

The practice of sketching au plein air for a year has taught me to attend to the moment. Be in it. Don't just take a lazy picture and save it for later. Live it right now. Even as it passes you by.

Note to Self :)

No contemplating the meaning of life today. Just enjoy it. Everything you got.
