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?

Broken Clocks

Did you hear Bill Clinton's speech at the 2012 DNC on Wednesday? This was one of my favorite excerpts.

By the way, thanks to everyone for the super nice comments and emails this week! It means a lot and gave me a boost during extra long days :)

"Even a broken clock is right twice a day." - Idiom

Please see the Lewis Carroll parable "The Two Clocks"!

My mind drifts into tangents during speeches too. And then the speaker is talking about something that is connected to what I call the "trigger word" but now I'm thinking unicorns.

Yeah, I've thought about this expression before, too. If the clock doesn't move, then the expression is correct. But if the clock is broken in a way that it is always 2 minutes late, then it will never be right!
