Gosh, the ‘ol website has been down for nearly nine months — the longest hiatus since I started the blog back in 2009. I guess I’ve felt like I’ve needed some space from self-promotion. It’s been nice to draw all these months without catering to an audience. I’ve also had a lot going on in my personal life, and as always, I’ve been evaluating what’s important and what to prioritize.
I used to think becoming a successful artist (whatever that means) was of upmost importance; the only goal worth pursing. With age, I’ve mellowed, and I find more and more value in outdoor activities, and being a good friend and community member.
Speaking of which: for the past year, I’ve been involved in a group trying to get classrooms built for our rural school, thus freeing up our community building. I won’t explain the whole project here, but it’s been important to me, so I thought I’d share it, and offer you the chance to contribute if you feel moved. We have an IndieGoGo campaign running now where you can learn more about it and see my first attempt at filmmaking!
I’ll try to get back in the habit of posting art here regularly. Here’s a recent comic I posted on FB, prompted by the Caitlyn Jenner thing.
