Don’t you just feel like yodeling right about now? I was in Winter Park Colorado in a coffee shop watching the snow fall outside the windows. Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris’ “All the Roadrunning” was softly playing in the background. I couldn’t think of anywhere else I would have rather been at that moment, and was aware of this feeling.

But thats not when my best drawing gets done, it seems. Usually, a really good drawing comes out when I least expect it… when I’m in between a rock and a hard place, perhaps, or if I’m worried about the day ahead of me, or struggling to accept things being exactly as they are. That is sometimes when something gets put on paper that I needed to draw for myself. Funny how that works, and I have no idea why it is that way. “Life is pain and anyone who says differently is selling something.” 2 guesses which movie I’m quoting (but you’re disqualified if you’ve heard me announce it during one of my performances).
