This Guy I Know
There’s this guy I know — just met him recently, actually — and he is a puzzling dude. I like him, but there is no doubt that he is more than a little strange.

Not in a bad way, really. He’s got a great personality and is always ready with a quick smile. He and I also share an interest in music and sports…and in enjoying life while we can. All of which makes him fun to hang with. If you try to engage him on something like the virus, though, or global warming or the state of the economy or anything really serious, he kind of glazes over and clams up.

He’s more of a good-times guy, I guess. A party animal. It’s almost as if he’s not even conscious of all the strife and worry in the world. On the other hand, I’ve never seen someone who is so quick to tears. Even over the smallest of things, I’ve seen him break down and cry like a baby.

I suppose that’s because he is a baby, but still. Strange.
The New New Normal
If a new normal
Is what you want
Then this announcement
Will be good news

It arrived today
And this is it
So you can relax and
Enjoy the views

And if you don’t like
This brand new sitch
There’s no reason to
To sing the blues

A new new normal
Lands tomorrow
And I know to it
You will get used
'22, All New!
I’m not
A dope
I know
The score

And I
Think things
Will get
better

That was
A wolf
Outside
The door

But now
It’s an
Irish
Setter
Oh Yes, the Book!
I’m trying to contain myself about my book, but I’m not having much luck. Head First, it’s called, in case I haven’t made that clear. The big news this week: the art part is done! 98 pages of full color cartoon storytelling — proofed, tweaked, finished, complete, done! Plus, the cover is designed, inked, colored, and done as well.

So where is the book? Well, while I’m waiting on bids from printers, I’m working on some of the “rewards” that supporters will get for backing Head First on Kickstarter. That’s the way it works, if you don’t know. People who want to back the production of the book pledge money for the project, and in return they receive rewards. The book itself will be the main reward — a large hardback with a single 98-page story in full, edge-to-edge color on high quality paper.

That’s my main motive for this whole venture — to finally hold that work of art in my hands. Something big and real and good that I put together all by myself. Okay, not completely by myself. I can’t do it without the help of people who also want a copy of the book. There will be other goodies available to backers as well, including sets of 20 color cards featuring characters from the book. [Check this week’s Subconscious Comics page for a couple of samples…that’s 12/30/2021 in the Subcon Archives.] Also up for grabs: my original black and white art from the book, all 98 pages’ worth. And so on.

Once I’ve got all this together (including a short video of me pitching the project…that should be fun), the whole thing will launch on Kickstarter sometime this spring. I hope you’ll give it a look when the time comes. It will be the biggest single cartoon project of my life (so far), and I can’t wait to get it out into the universe.

Getting very close now. I’ll let you know in plenty of time to join the fun.
