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 State of the Medium
We've come a long way from huddling around a radio, listening to the State of the Union. This year, I streamed the address on HuffPo and, at one point, I had to step back for a moment and just observe what I was doing. Not only was I listening to the President speak and watching him on small 360-pixel video window, I was reading live commentary and being prompted to react and comment and share and post my thoughts in real-time throughout. I am amazed by how much my experience of receiving the address has changed just in a few years. How about you? What do you think?
