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?

Sketchbook: Do What Makes You Come Alive

Didn't finish today's cartoon. Sharing pages from my sketchbook instead and a quote I've carried with me since high school:

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” - Dr. Howard Thurman

The Henson drawing is especially apt in light of the sad news about James over this past weekend. Both father and son were truly alive.

You're very talented. I'd love to be able to sketch something that was on my mind each day. I'm lucky if I can think of an interesting tweet or two.
