Drawergeeks: last of 07'. Elves. What a year. Little sleep, some good work produced, some not so good. Some areas to explore in the scratchboard area, flesh out and see where that takes me. Yeah, I know... It ain't digital, well... poop on that. It makes me happy. That is what this was all supposed to be about way back when we started out as kids... right? To make US happy. Not to match somebody's sofa colors, not to jump through some Art Director's hoops of fire, but to make US happy. I need to remember that more often.

Friends, if I don't post any more this season, hug someone dear to you and tell them what they mean in your life. It makes a difference.

Doug, in all honesty, this was my favorite DG of the week. I also have to say this. If you drew nothing else but illustrations/cartoons like this, I would be happy. You're other work, I love it all. But your cartooning, that is what inspired me back in college, and still inspires me today. You are so freakin' gifted. Sheesh.

That's so clever, lol! You mention digital vs... um... real... so is this one digital, then? I thought I remembered in high school we used some kind of film to make those comic dots. Is it all different now?

Hey, I failed cartooning, but I have had one great idea for a single panel comic I have held on to for years. If you'd be interested in developing it for shits and giggles, let me know. (Though I warn you, those who I've told have rolled their eyes, but I think it's hilarious.)

Bryan, thanks most sincerely. That means a lot. I want so much to be more than what I am today... but I don't know what.

Lacey, thanks heaps. Yeah, if you want to send the idea over I will take a poke at it... no promises though.
