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."
Hey there. I know you guys haven't heard from me in a minute. With the holidays fast approaching, this month has been pretty much a wash. I, for one, will be glad when Christmas gets here so I can finally experience the "Peace On Earth" so to speak. I look forward to time off from work, time with family and also time to make more comics!
This year I was a bit burnt out with the art scene. A few venues where I had some success at selling my work had dried up. While there is an influx of people coming into the city, I feel like the money isn't trickling down to the visual arts as much. Even the established artists have said that Charlotte is a difficult market to sell artwork. Working on "Tales From A Sketchy Artist" was a nice diversion and took me back to my roots when I made comic books as a kid.
I want to thank you for coming onto this site to read my little 'ol web comic. I've really enjoyed and appreciated your comments, shares, follows, and encouraging words. You'll see another post from me soon enough.
Have a happy and safe holiday and a prosperous new year!
Ha ha! Get it?! Because nebulas are gassy and haaaaa! I am cracking myself up! :)
Sorry but I was inspired by the little star from my last post, "Solar Eclipse." Had to run with it.
Since I started this week with celestial humor, I might as well end it the same way.
If you have a cat, you know that once they sit on your lap or lay on you, it's over. You find yourself lingering in the same spot longer than you intended. They get up when THEY'RE ready and we allow them to do so as if they've somehow cast a spell on us. "You are getting sleeeepy."
