Yesterday, May 19, was the one-year anniversary of this web-comic, "Tales From A Sketchy Artist." I remember first putting this site together when I was on sick leave and really didn't feel like indulging in any other art projects. Since then it's been a labor of love. I've really had a great time working on this and hope that those of you who've read it had some fun along the way. Again, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the love and support.
That being said I will still continue to create more comics HOWEVER, I am going to take a few months off so that I can focus on some other projects. Lord willing I will be back! After all, there's too much humor in our daily lives to NOT put it down on paper, right?
Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent Season. What did I give up for Lent? Wine! Yes, wine. It is practically a staple for me but the problem is that much of it seems to stick to my body parts, more specifically, my stomach. So as part of my "War Against The Wine Gut" is to deprive myself of it for at least 40 days while I continue to eat well and exercise.
I did this comic a couple of years ago when I also gave up wine for Lent but I don't think I posted it on this site. So enjoy and pray for a sistah. "I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me."
All I have to say is that when you bring back your cat home after a week's stay at the vet, you'll probably want to monitor your furniture.
I spent time in Michigan with my family for Christmas and the state is no stranger to cold winters and gray days. When the sun manages to break free from the clouds, I want to run to the nearest window to catch its rays or go outside if the temperature is conducive enough (for me that's more like the spring). Let's face it, if the sun is out for an hour, it may as well be out for the entire day.
It's okay, state of my birth. I still love you anyways. Just not your winters.
