Breakfast of champions

It has been this kind of week. I had my mother in town, we looked a million open houses, our ac bill was over 260 dollars and we live in 450 square feet....and I was throwing up yesterday after a 7.3 mile run (this is disheartening because we run 10-14 miles every week and I have never gotten sick like this). I am also having a hard time making any progress on big projects. Its like the summer inertia is paralyzing me, but the only difference between summer and fall is that there is a weather change. It does make me sad I am not a kid anymore. There are so many things that suck about being a kid, but the one thing that is awesome is having vacations that are long and predetermined. I guess if I were a teacher this would be the same. Its not like I can handle having nothing to do, but at least when the vacation is predetermined you figure out how to fill it.
Speaking of which, our next weekend plans fell through so we have to figure out how to make our weekend in the city feel like the country. Anyone got a country estate they want to invite us to?

Win, lose, or draw

In college I was really obsessed with a little world I created and I was totally immersed in it. When I felt lonely, sad, or bad about myself I went to place and drew my little characters and it made me feel good. It reminded me a little of when I was a little kid and played with my little ponies. They were the most important thing to me and I can still remember the feeling of joy and escape. So, here we are many years later and I have not drawn a comic consistently for more than one page. I drew this the other day and while I think coloring in panels is not sustainable if I plan to continue it it nice to find a new world. The old one was more college kids awkwardly trying to navigate relationships, being gay, and also being self destructive. It was funny and self deprecating. I want to go back there sometimes and pick up where I left off, but I am not in the same place. When I look at something like this is feels more my speedish. I am older and will be an aging hipster with the potential of child or at least having my friends kids around me. I think I want to explore the dynamics of parent and child and parents in general. The couple in this family is not married, but they have a kid and are basically a modern family with the same age old issues. Its unclear where this is going, but writing children's books seems to be going nowhere right now so a comic might just be a little more liberating. I cannot seem to crack the publishing world even with connections....its rather frustrating. So onward and upward and maybe eventually my agent will return my emails. In the mean time here's Winne.
