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?

Good Deal on Shampoo

Ah, home for the holidays...Moms don't mess around. Least of all, Asian ones.

A Status Message a Day #46

Visiting my California roots. And I finally got access to a scanner! For those of you traveling, get home safe and don't forget your jetpacks.

Licking It Off Rocks

Traveling today; homeward bound. Here's one for the road: an old sketch from earlier this year. Huge fan of Carlin, but I didn't say I could draw him!

Dogged Determination

No foolin' around -- this dog means business. I see him regularly in the park, sitting patiently at the base of a tree, while other dogs play. There's a squirrel hiding up there, he knows it.

Overheard by Connie #1

It's gonna be a busy week, but here's an old one from my sketchbook.  I'll try to keep posting.

The Light Bulb Type

This is one of my favorite Chinese idioms: 当电灯泡. I don't want to brag, but it's kind of a special talent.

Maria Bamford on Hope

I didn't get to finish a status today; worked late. But here's an old scribble from my sketchbook. And if you don't know her, here's a short snippet of Maria Bamford awesomeness (00:47). She's one of my favorite stand-up comics.

Shoe Shopping Beats Online Dating

A hypothetical trip to the shoe store. This may have been funnier in my head. I'm experimenting with different formats and trying to find a sweet spot. (For real though, I'm done with online dating! Hmph!)

A Status Message a Day #44

Sheesh, EVERYbody's a critic...

This one didn't come out as funny as I had hoped.  Instead it makes me look a little crazy. Maybe it needs another panel?

Constructive Criticism

Tough crowd, yo. Contrary to the impression you might get from the last panel, critiques are welcome ;)
