If I could sum it up, in the word, it would be the rift. I feel myself, at the crawl of the summit, watching the world roll in front me, waves of hills, until I realize I am running, running to an unknown, hoping to miss the cliff along one of these sides. And there is a string, a just in case, dangling from my back, caught on branches and barks, torn, severed. There is nothing now but the massive uncertainty of possibility and the small smile that kisses my head and promises a light. There is no way it points, the glow simply radiates, but it chases the gloom as I chase Somewhere.

lingering on the edge of my justifications.

On the crux of: no physical harm was occurring upon a person. The car could be replaced, insured. Police intervention could result in violence. I didn't expect this. "Which is more right."

Distracted, no coughing, no sneezing, just write.

Write about that stuff on the blog, or what's suppose to be on the blog. It's a blog to have fun, right, so where is it, find the fun. Everything is still being planned out, thought up, categorized, analyzed, before its even drawn. What are you looking for, when you go to look at an artist? Is it a unique voice? Yes. Quality illustrations? Yes.

But what else. Content? Single images? What?

Are you going to let you stories drift away? Why are you holding onto them, like they're precious. Cast them out. Let them sink and float and become something rather than an idea in your head. This can't be all that you're thinking of. You're too afraid to write, to think, to do, so its cast off for another day. But it's just a story. Just a drawing, a face. Hold onto them in the moment of creation, then let them go.

Just have fun.

You have such meaningful discussion about your work and others' work, and although I appreciate the quiet and soft-spoken in the group, I'd like to see you push yourself to speak up a little bit more so the rest of the class can hear part of your perspectives. You have a real talent for being extremely critical and honest, but also kind. That's surprisingly rare delight in the creative world, and I believe you have a bigger impact on the mood of the class than you know. It's been great getting to know you so far this year, I'm really excited to see what you do next.

I got married to the most wonderful person last week.

If someone would have walked up to me in high school and pointed her out across the room and told me she was the person of my dreams, I wouldn't have believed them. But she is, and somehow the chaos of chance brought us together. Thanks, chance, for giving me a big one up on probability of finding The One.

Belated, but I came across Joy Ang today. She did a cover for The Anthology Project which showcased various comic artists.

Progress shots of her spread here.
