Wake up oh my soul

Little Zen Tree 1980

This tree has been taped down to my drawing table for  several weeks now. Painted it in blues because it was the dead of winter. I wanted it to be icy and cold. I live in Michigan so while earlier this week it was in the 50's today it is in fact cold and icy... AGAIN!

never the less...

winter is NOT coming.

Spring is coming.


And my soul, my vision, my passion...

is ready to wake.

Defiance

Or you can stand on the beach and scream at the storm. Whatever. Knock yourself out.

Are We Still Here?

Little Zen Tree 1979

I'm going to share a perspective that is probably not a popular one among 90% (or so it seems) of my friends.

When things happen that are largely out of my control, like some really bad person gets elected to be the next leader of the free world... er something, I don't fret too much and it's for one very simple reason:  All things including myself are just passing through.

All things.

Passing through.

You build a sandcastle and it's a fantastic sandcastle. You are so proud of this masterpiece and you even took the time to build it way far up the beach. "HA! Take that, TIDE!" Then a hurricane comes.

Build another sandcastle when it's over.

Well, it seems as though we (I) am slowly easing back into painting the trees every day after largely taking the summer off to focus on other things.  The other things are still there, but I've found that my work and mental health for that matter suffers when I don't paint the trees. They're just their own thing and they're not like the other things I do and that diversity brings balance to my life, my perspective and really everything I do.

So we paint the trees.

    Back To Bark

    Little Zen Tree 1961

    Super busy making comics this summer. Kids out of school, vacations etc... etc... etc...

    But I'm missing my trees and gradually getting back into a routine. Plenty more on the way.  My best trees are still ahead of me.

    Live life through the windshield.
