What a long, strange strip it’s been, carry on my wayward son and keep on truckin’

August 30th, 2011 § 1

Wow! One year. 365 days. I’m surprised I actually made it.

I would like to thank you all for your support through the past year while I was on this endeavor. There were the laughing times, there were the melancholy times, and then there were the downright WTF times.

But now, I need a little vacation from the paint. I will be off for a month or two coding up some projects that have been burning in the back of my mind – even want to learn some new languages. At this moment, I am now turning my make-shift art studio into a bat cave where I will become a nice pasty white while coding those righteous scripts.

After a month or two, I will return back to the painting again. For I have ideas. And those ideas grew. And I am excited.

Until then …

Thank you sooo much guys.
