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?

This is an old digital drawing I dug up from 2008. (Is that cheating?) Some things don't change.

Measuring progress

A year ago I vowed to become an artist in practice, not just in theory.
Hay! I think I'm making some progress!  #feelingood

A Status Message a Day #27

"There's no reason not to follow your dreams."

More than the products he created, I carry his words with me.

A Status Message a Day #26

"I paint in order not to cry." -- Paul Klee

(This is a reproduction of a drawing by the venerable Maurice Sendak of Where the Wild Things Are. I drew it a couple of years ago thinking of myself and individuals I know. Today, I think of the world and those I will never meet.)
