Well, I just topped 800K views, so I thought I'd give a little update on me and maybe post some new pics.
Lately, life has been a box of chocolates!...Unfortunately, it's a box of crappy chocolates that had been left out in the sun. I kind of think I am putting Murphy's Law to the test to see if "Whatever CAN go wrong, WILL go wrong" is true. So far... it has been VERY true! I'm tellin' ya, I not only hit rock bottom, but life handed me a jack hammer and told me to keep diggin'! It's not that I hit a speed bump in the road, but more like my speed bump has a road in it somewhere! If luck were rain, I'd be in Southern California! ... oh wait, I AM!
OK, in most respects it's not THAT bad... but it's been rough, I'll say that.
The good thing is it has allowed me to focus on drawing. In fact, I've done more drawing in the last year than I have in a long time... probably more than the previous 5 years combined! I've been studying, practicing, and refining my work, hoping to top myself with each new picture.... I know I'll never be as good as I want to be, but I can at least try to get better at it, right? So where is it all? Well, lots of it will be in the next book... but many will be showing up here once I get them scanned in and cleaned up. I have lots of fun stuff... characters I've been wanting to draw forever but haven't since I wouldn't be able to use them in the books, I have whole series of drawings, I have many (FAR too many) that I promised to post for friends (They're coming! I swear! ... the drawings, not my friends.) ... and I have quite a few that will be put up on my "clean" page. (A few of you have found it... but I keep it quiet since it's a ghost town filled with my own self indulgence... kind of like my Twitter account)
I'm still sitting on that Commission Box, leaving it locked away and buried with an eye on the shovel wondering if I should open it. It's just that I know I'd have to charge more than my going rate to make it worthwhile. (My going rate right now is a hug.)
And finally, I want to say thank you to everyone who has contributed comments, sent me notes, and asked about commissions. I wish I could quantify the value of a few kind words in a comment, or a note out of the blue to say hello. I am always thrilled to hear from old friends and meet new ones. As sporadic as my posts have been, I still pop in often to see what's going on, and while I don't always get a chance to respond to everything, I appreciate all of it!
Alright... time to chain myself back to the drawing table.
