This an excerpt from my book, The Big Year, which we’ll be launching a Kickstarter for in the next day or so. Be on the look out. In the meantime, hold your sweetheart close.
Happy Valentine’s Day, my love:)
Like last year, Derek and I have decided to do a week of thanks. I decided to start this year off with a bang again and thank the often unsung heroes for all artists, the ones that are there in the background cheering you on, hoping you achieve your dream, and helping you move forward with it.
Thank you, Amy! You are the love of my life and I’m so happy to be able to call you my wife.
This comic is more of a series of moments that happened one evening. They kind of overwhelmed me and then the words started to form.
The words came in a flash as I was driving home at night after having dinner with my parents. I quickly pulled out my notebook to write them down (a practice that I started many years ago because I hate trying to recreate a moment and hate it even more when I forget an idea). Of course, since I wanted to hit a red light none came to my aid. I ended up writing this comic down with my notebook on my steering wheel and my eyes glued to the road ahead. I was impressed that I could read it when I got home.
There are so many beautiful tiny moments that are happening these days. I’m really happy I have comics to capture some of them.
Even if you plop down $17,000 for the most high-end model, there’s an app for everything on the Apple Watch except love.
This came to mind after I read someone defending their owning this newest tech fad by saying people calling them out for their smugness were just deflecting their own jealousy. I don’t believe this to be the case. I actually have no interest in owning an Apple Watch, and if one were just given to me, I would sell it, as I would rather have the money to spend on experiences. Now what if I could have both? I still don’t think I would have any interest in owning one. I don’t even own a regular watch. My phone does more than enough, and there are even times I want to get rid of it.
