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?

Thank You, Dear Reader

























Thank you, friends from all over the world in 90 countries, for taking the time to visit my humble blog. The encouragement you offer me goes a long way and motivates me to keep plugging along :)

I'm happy to report that the blog hit 10,000 page views yesterday! It wasn't overnight, but hooray for those mini-milestones :)

So thank you for commenting, sharing, or just continuing to check back for updates. I appreciate it!

RedHerringJeff, thank you for including my blog in your very generous blog post on Monday. Like you said, blogging can "feel a lot like having a conversation with yourself," so it's extra nice to make unexpected connections...especially with fellow artists! 

Also, credit goes to playwright/journalist/attorney/et cetera Wajahat Ali for the title "Connie to the Wonnie" and for nagging me to do this for, oh, about 10 years. Thank you :)

Special thanks to my parents who probably account for half of all page views! And my little brother, who has let me draw funny pictures of him at every stage of life :)

How time flies. My wife was talking to a friend on Skype yesterday and she was telling her about your blog. Slowly but surely the word is spreading. Keep going.
