Happy Christmas

May your holiday leave you nourished, but I don’t care what you got.
As an aside… This is my 20 th christmas card. Since 1995 I have sent fifty cards a year.
Every year I get a card from my mom/ernie, my sister, and now from my bio dad. That’s three.
This year (like last) i got one from the super golden Goldtonuks.
It looks like because I do not have my own family, nobody cares to send me greetings.
That’s fine, you think this is the first year I learned this?
Am I bitter? maybe. Will I get a half dozen “whoops” cards? probably.
So, the 20 year lesson I learned is.. if you don’t have babies nobody wants to acknowledge you.
Shit, I learned that a decade ago, but how should I respond?

Been thinking about my mom. In her early 20’s she raised me and my sister, by herself.
I cannot even imagine how difficult it was to feed a family of three on the income she made at Dress Barn or the Ground Round.
We fought a ton back then; “Why can’t I take saxophone anymore” or “Why do we need a babysitter?”
I’ve always been a little shit, and the strength it took her not to murder me in my sleep… well, it’s impressive.

You bothered to draw an air plant?

airplant

Bought this for my mother a little while back. My step dad had to go on youtube to learn to tie a noose to hang it with the appropriate “look”. Of course the image doesn’t include the noose, or much information at all, I just liked it.. so it’s here.
When you get old, crap like this interests you. After tuesday, I suspect I will be drawing a lot of house plants, possibly vases, plates with flower details, and shells.
Science category because, er, it appears to be a water droplet with an eco system contained within…
(the interface here won’t let me add any more categories for some reason)

“Mermaids are for real”

My nephew turned 12 a couple weeks ago. He told me about a “documentary” on TV that proved that Mermaids were real. Thats enough for me.
I happened upon the show, it was on Animal Planet. Very compelling,
really.

Still dealing with my loss. The next image is so self indulgent I’m actually embarrassed.
