Why I Draw


Special thanks to sculptor Tom Otterness (a fellow Wichita, KS native), Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, and anyone who's managed to snap a photo of the elusive Bigfoot. 

Is this why you draw? You can pick up a print in my new and improved poster shop.

Love it. Though the shattering - the frailty, the tenuous nature - is one of the things I love about pottery. Love your comics - keep up the good work!

you know, i just want to say that i get excited to see your comics whenever they come out. they're so much fun and so relateable. I always end up posting these on friend's facebook walls.

I draw because sometimes that are no pictures that illustrate the kind of emotions and thoughts u want to portray.

I can't draw, or really do any of the things on the list, that's why it's a job well done. Oh, yeah.

Although I am not a drawer, it has been a pleasure keeping up with your comics and getting inside the mind of a drawer. I am a writer myself, and
I have to tell you that it is indeed reclusive...but that's one of the many things I love about it! :)

I can do stick men.

Writers are reclusive? I take that as a compliment. Hehe. Great comic, as always.

I draw when the cards I've been dealt aren't good enough to win the hand.

or

I draw when the gunfighter draws. It's a matter of survival.

I agree about acting. Its just to...weird. That's why I am an animator, I can act through my characters.

Stuart said...

Sorry for the double comment, but I just saw you are from KC, mo. Me too. Maybe I've seen you at Broadway and didn't know it.

That's great stuff.
I used to draw...apparently not well. Was always told by family "Oh, you draw sooo welllll!" Got to college and found out I didn't. So....

But I appreciate this comic. Its just....swell!

Colleen said...

Great work!
I draw because I love to do it. Good a reason as any, I think. :)

Tyler said...

I think you've hit just about every reason why I like drawing. I personally don't like taking photos but I love editing photos. Drawing let's you make mistakes and be more creative than anything else without a large commitment.

Writing is fun but it requires commitment and sometimes I just can't do it. This is good inspiration for me to write something, though. Thanks!

By now things are getting a little drawn out, but that's okay. I do some of the other stuff, and I simply find drawing a new and excitingly different outlet for creativity. That's why I'm trying to learn to improve. Yes, that's right... not just improve but learn to.

You...are...my...hero!!! I cant believe something like this exists on the internet! Its so true, so honest, and more than that you dont sound like an idiot! Finally, someone who knows how to talk about a subject without sounding like a kid who didnt get that bike he wanted for Christmas.
