Another Creative Venture

I’ve decided to try my hand at creative writing, and have been working on a novella – in addition to my art. I’m not sure how far I’ll take it, but I’m really enjoying the challenge.


Above, is a rough edit of my book cover. The title will probably change, as will the cover art.

Writing is hard work, but like art, it’s a wonderful way to pass the time. Like anything worth doing, it can be frustrating at times, but I’m really having a lot of fun re-working sentences, and fitting everything together – no really, I am.

This is a first attempt, so I’m a ways from putting anything out. That said, my goal is to one day e-publish a book. Short of hiring an editor, I’m going to try to do everything else myself, so, it’s probably going take a long time to complete.

I’ll post more updates in the future.

Dumb Art Jokes

“That’s wonderful,” the artist exclaimed. “What’s the bad news?”
“The guy was your doctor…”
