I sold 10 books last month. Even though I’m having brain surgery next week, once I return home from the hospital, I’ll have some time to work on some art. I’ve neglected it for several months now since July 2013 because of the shunt issues I’ve been dealing with. Even though drawing for 16 plus hours a day working on a book can be exhausting and rewarding at times, I look forward to spending time with my cartoon children. They stare at me through pictures on my drafting table silently asking why I haven’t spent time with them in 8 months.
