Back in the District


After spending a few days in sun-drenched Florida I began to dread my trip how to Washington because I knew what would be waiting for me: Gray skies. It didn't disappoint. Winter is here, and so is the nasty winter weather. Don't get me wrong, I love the snow and the cold weather, its the gray skies I can do without. Don't even get me started on the drizzle.
How can a brutha get inspired to draw cartoons when its so miserable outside? Luckily there's a few Starbucks in walking distance of my apartment, so at least I can drown my sorrow with a hot latte.
I had some fun down in Florida. I got to meet a few nieces that I didn't know and it was good hanging out with them. But don't get me wrong, I truly missed being in the Northeast. I took a much needed break from cartooning and focused on relaxing. Well, that's over. With the new year comes new ideas for cartoons. I'm going to try to be optimistic this year like my old friend Rick Tuma (cause I know you're reading this blog entry).
I'm also optimistic because "hope" and "change" arrives here in DC in a few short days. The inauguration site is just a few short blocks from my apartment and I'll try to make it to the National Mall if I can.
Enough with the rambling. Its time to go to bed.

Thanks for the shout out, 'Los. I've also been busy trying to tackle new ideas and part of that involves completely revamping my website [ ] and having an ad in the 2009 Directory of Illustration (very expensive, unfortunately!). I'm about two or three days away from uploading to my host server so don't go looking just yet.

Here's hoping your 2009 exceeds all expectations!
