Make the Jump

Our life is a lot different these days.  We’ve had two major life events in the last few months that have required us to adapt and change.  As things settle down and we adjust to new routines and reality in the big ways, we also find little things that we need to tweak as well. As…

Rebirth

And when they say That you’re not good enough Well the answer is You’re not But who are they Or what is it That eats at what you’ve got With the hunger of ambition For the change inside the purse They are handcuffs on the soul, my friends Handcuffs on the soul And worse -Paul…

Things Happen

Let’s make a list of all things the world has put you through Let’s raise a glass to all the people you’re not speaking to I don’t know what else you wanted me to say to you Things happen That’s all they ever do -Dawes I’m tired of things happening. Over the past few months…

Woman With The Strength Of 10,000 Men

From the moment I saw your face I knew I could never take living for granted I froze right in my place, as I became aware of the ground on which my feet were planted I owe you an apology For all the days I just let slide right through my hands You are the woman…

Running to Stand Still

I said hey hey workin’ man workin’ man like me I ain’t never been on welfare and that’s one place I won’t be I’ll be back workin’ as long as my two hands are fit to use -Merle Haggard I tend to be overly self-critical of my flaws and I tend to diminish my successes,…

Generation Nintendo

Ah, Inktober.  The annual cartoonist holiday/challenge where artists will post a daily drawing throughout the entire month.  The rules are pretty loose but it’s usually expected that one will do an actual ink drawing on paper as opposed to something digital.  Some artists will use the prompts and do a drawing off that, but some…

I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For

“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something” -J.R.R. Tolkien Two weeks ago I posted about wondering, essentially, what the point was when it comes to trying.  I reiterated that I’ll never stop drawing and creating, but was there a point when it comes to trying to gain any sort of fan…

Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party

Yesterday was FallCon, the comic convention put on by the fine people at the Midwest Comic Book Association.  FallCon takes place each October and was the first comic convention I attended as a guest which was waaaaay back in 2002-ish.  I remember working on Uptown Girl #7 at my table.  I’ve attended each year since…

Things are Really Great Here, Sort of

Sometimes things go just swell.  The day job is going well and the stress and obligations that go with it are stressful but manageable.  The family’s routine is chaotic but at this point we’ve been doing what we do for so long it becomes, well, maybe not easy but you know what I mean.  And…

Constructive Summer

I always feel a sense of…newness when the next season starts.  I get excited for different things, depending on the time of the year.  On the opposite side of that, I also dread and get anxious about other things that are associated with a new season.  Right now I am excited about cooler weather, but…
