Well, likely-imaginary readers, I don’t know where to begin. I don’t know where to begin catching you up, and I don’t know where to begin reestablishing myself as a reliable correspondent. I think we’ll just have to take things slow for a bit until we find our rhythm again.

In brief, it’s been a whirlwind few months (and though the houses and cows are no longer airborne, the winds are still high). I have, among other things, been lately involved in a one-of-a-kind multi-media show called Drawn Out Storytelling. I’ll have a whole lot more to tell you about it soon (including where you can catch its next installment!) but, for now, here are a couple cool pictures I drew for it:

this first illustration accompanied a story by Ben Lillie and takes it’s title, “The Rise of the Orange and Purple Proletariat,” from a line therein.

This reptilian gourmand comes straight from a story by Jeff Simmermon.

Ben and Jeff are both fantastic storytellers and great guys to work with. Over the next few weeks, I’ll have a lot more to say about Drawn Out Storytelling, how I came to be involved in it, and the multitudes of multi-talented stroytellers, illustrators, and musicians who’ve been working on the show.

Anyway, it’s good to be blogging again. I’ll get looking for that rhythm if you do too.
