This collection of art blog posts is about illustration. Sometimes I create art that isn’t Survival Anxiety Comics, and I like to share.

Time for a Back Pat

Illustration of a man wearing glasses, with a brightly coloured something blasting through his head. There is a large smile painted on his face.

Let’s talk about that thing you’re working on.

I know it’s been hard finding time to work on it. Time of any meaningful length is a unicorn. Family, responsibilities, work, chores, everything. But you found time.

Between tasks at work, on the bus commute, before bed, or before breakfast.

Instead of spending an hour endlessly scrolling through social media.

Here and there.

You penny-jarred the hell out of your thing. And now it’s done.

Sure, there were challenges. The kids took your thing-space for home schooling. Finicky tools. The internet is a fun-house mirror.

But they are all in the past.

You took what was a passing electrical spark in your brain, and turned it into something tangible. That’s amazing. Good work.

And now, it’s time for the next thing. It will be even better than your last thing.

I can’t wait to see it.

Story Time – Apple Tree on a Forest Trail

June 22, 2021

There is an apple tree on a forest trail. It’s tall, and old, and covered in tiny green apples. I’ve walked that trail dozens of times, and never noticed this tree before today. Maybe I don’t look up enough. Maybe it’s shy. Maybe the squirrels are holding it for ransom.

A bus stop sign, and a sky black with crows.

A work in progress for the zine. The sky darkens, the crows approach!

Birthday Stickers

Artwork for a birthday invite. They’ll also be stickers for the goodie bags. It was a good excuse to kick the tires on Procreate.
