A couple months ago I hit delete on my old blog. Gone! It’s all gone but I held on to one piece, my old header.
I’m attaching it to this post less for sentimental reasons than for a symbolic one. You see, if you look closely at the image, you’ll see it’s unfinished. This drawing has sat in this state on or somewhere near my drawing table for the last 13 years.
I had the good luck to work on some fun projects last year and I am motivated to take all my frog drawings–the various sketches, half-finished dummies, snippets of stories–sitting on or somewhere near my drawing table and see them through. Starting this spring I’m going to devote myself full-time to doing that.
So here I am, posting the frog drawing to formally close down the sketch blog. See you on the other side.
