“Oh well” & a comic strip on cartooning.

Since the first of this month, I’ve been looking forward to a kind of special day. But today I realized that my special day passed with out me realizing it. May 23 2014 is the day that my first editorial cartoon was published. May 23 2015 – I was super busy and completely forgot about my cartooniversary.  😦

Oh well. My next cartoon will be my 100th published cartoon. I guess I can celebrate that, hopefully on Friday.

I was planning to do a special blog post about cartooning for the last year. I’m kinda bummed about missing the day so I don’t really want to write much… So instead I’ll leave you with a comic strip glimpse of what comes with cartooning.

I hope everyone started the year off in a more than pleasant way. In my household we were in bed by midnight sharing nerdy You Tube videos on our phones. While that may not seem to be the party that others would prefer, we actually enjoy that down time. So it wasn’t a bad way to start the New Year. It was actually perfect.

I have a bunch of things I want to work on this year. I want to cartoon more. I actually want to create a comic strip. Woohoo! Three Moons will be finishing up the Spectrum series and working on some great stuff with our artists friends and the amazing people over at Guma Tasa. I have a lot of work to do to really get WOW! powering through the year and ready for the exhibit. Allan and I are expecting our Dragon Age order to come in soon. We’re so excited for that. It’ll be pretty awesome to get our friends together for some adventures.

A lot of things planned for this year, but of course I still have my day job. I’m kind of looking for something else though. I’d like something that doesn’t fry my brain, so that when I get off I still have some cells left to take on adventures and creative endeavors. Plus, I want to be able to spend more time with my family! We’ll see how that search goes. For now this illustrates how I feel going in to work at 6:45 in the morning, when I really just want to recover from an all night drawing, pinning, blogging, or planning binge. I imagine it being captioned, “grrrrrrrrr!”

What are you looking forward to this year? Do you have an awesome headache free job to offer me, that will pay the bills my projects don’t pay? Can you do a cart wheel? Were you looking forward to getting a hover board for your birthday this year? Oh well, for now I will leave you with this.

Someone did create a hover board though. I’m sure Apple is trying to buy it now.
