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?

Overheard by Connie #12

Straight from my sketchbook, advice from a slightly embittered woman who was once married. Overheard in Durban, South Africa. Guess it's hard for the ladies no matter where you are...

Early for Ice Cream

Welcome to adulthood: where we are responsible for our own stupid decisions. Also, where it's possible to have ice cream for breakfast!

A Status Message a Day #107

Triumph is making it to Friday with jet lag - YESS! *Self-pat on back*

Note on below: I require a LOT of quiet time to process life. That's just the way it is.

Sketching South Africa

Most of the time, a sketch doesn't do reality justice -- but the attempt is not for nothing and there is charm in the memory ;)

Social Media Code

Do you speak the code?

Social Media Speak

When all my thoughts are reduced to this -- it is definitely time to take a break. (Color version of this cartoon here.)

I will be traveling for the next couple of weeks and will resume posting cartoons when I return. Hopefully, refreshed - and inspired. :)

Happy summer, everyone!

A Status Message a Day #106

Getting ready for a 2-week trip to South Africa! I'm nowhere near packed, but I'm visualizing :)

All I know is I'm bringing my passport, some brushes, and a sketchbook.

The Scream of Nature

Today's cartoon is in homage to Edvard Munch's iconic painting, originally titled "Der Schrei der Natur" (The Scream of Nature). Personally, I find it to be a fitting reference :)

Love Birds

It's tough to be a single bird, but it's also damn good material ;)
