Thank you for your support. Thank you for your comments, your messages, and your emails while I attempted to help my dad through a disastrous return of cancer. I can not express how positive he and I felt about beating it. On Friday, October 1st, my dad died.
In moments of strength, I like to believe that our mortal comprehensions of "victory" or "winning" transcend the philosophy of "living to fight another day."
My dad was in a lot of pain and "beating cancer" would have involved a lengthy process of treatments that would have caused even more pain. So, I try to think that passing was the best "win" he would have got out of this fight.
I don't have as many moments of strength as I'd like, but they feel great when I have them.
So, thank you. Thank you for your good vibes, thank you for your positivity, and thank you for the love. I am grateful to have a world full of amazing friends and such supportive fans.
I love you guys!

I'm very appreciative of my fans and I know many of you like to use these calendars, so I wanted to at least keep up with that while I go through a hard time.
That said, it's also important to recognize and celebrate life. French artist and one of my favorites, Logan, has a birthday coming up on the 4th. Glen Hanson has a birthday on the 11th; photographer, Drew Martyn, on the 18th, and Steve MacIsaac closes out this months birthdays on the 21st.
I also want to take this opportunity to make a public apology to both Logan and Chubtoons.
I am a big fan of both of these artist and I am embarrassed that I did not showcase their features with the same enthusiasm as previous artist. I will be doing my best to make up for this later.
To avoid repeating this disservice, I will not be featuring a Q&A this month.
Thank you for your patience and your support.
