Just Keeping It Real

Yea, Yea, I know...I've been slacking...sorry. I've evidently been too busy in my real life to doodle. This is all I've done in the last 13 days. And rather than sit down and manufacture a bunch of unauthentic doodles, I'm giving you exactly what has occured.

I Do Hate a Bad Commute

One of the best things about working at home is you are never late to the office. This guy is growing on me.

Working At Home Can Be A Lonely Life

On thing for sure, when you work at home, there are very few social interactions.

A Talking Pencil? Does Anyone Even Use Pencils?

I Really Don't Like Drawing Animals

I'm finding myself battling between drawing and doing actual work that pays the bills. I seem to go through these annual stages where I just know there is an idea trying to get out and if I could just tap it I would be pouring out great comics. The counter balance to that is I'm very anal about not letting my head get too high in the clouds, as I feel, although we all may want to be a movie star there are only a few who ever do, the rest of us have to fill in and take a position to support reality. I drew that dumb looking Cat/Dog on a leash, remembering that most successful comic strips have an animal..and a quote by Schultz about how Peanuts didn't take off until Snoopy walked upright....but I hate drawing animals and cars.

January 11, 2011 - 1-11-11 Just Another Day

I've been seeing 1111 and other combinations of 1's for a while now. I was beginning to think either something horrible; death, or something great was going to occur on a day that was all ones...New Years Day this year, or the 11th of January, now I guess I have to wait until Nov. 1st or 11th to see if there anything awaiting me, cause today is 1/12/11 and I'm still here, and didn't win the lottery yesterday.

Okay, I Get it the Economy Sucks

I happene to talk to someone today that works at a bank that was recently taken over by the FDIC. The bank was brought down by development and commercial loans that were good at the time they lent the money, but now are crap. This person will ultimately loose their job also. There is a lot of commercial paper that borrowers have been paying as best they can in hopes the economy will turn. Well it has been 3 years now...they are tapped out. They wasted all their cash holdings and now they are going to loose it anyway and have nothing. The next shoe will drop soon and hard.

A New Year, A New Set of Goals

Every year starts out the the bottom of a mountain I create for is just a matter of how high and difficult I want to make the climb. No, none of these doodles seem to represent my state of mind, but perhaps I'm trying to escape my mind.
