This is JZT's cat wedding. I don't know John very well, but I think he's a funny guy. That's basically the bonds of our friendship. Once we got together and thought up some stuff we could do for Channel 101. The best idea was an action-packed detective series with a 70-year-old private eye. I'd still like to do that some day.
Here’s a sketch children’s song I wrote for Bellevue’s show back in October. It’s based on a song I thought everyone sang back in elementary school, but then it turned out only myself and Claire had so we forced the rest of Bellevue to memorize all the states in alphabetical order.
It was worth it.

By working hard. By doing good work. By doing work that consistently improves over time. By meeting people. By working hard. By doing good work. By hustling. By selling yourself. By selling your book. By working hard. By doing good work. By shaking hands. By taking notes. By connecting with peers. By meeting artists. By meeting colorists. By handing your book out to friends, and friends of friends, to other writers, other artists, and editors you may meet. By working hard. By doing good work. By going to shows. By reading everything you can get your hands on. By thinking about comics more than you think about how to break in to comics. By learning how to promote your work. By promoting your work in new spaces, to new faces, and having them not want your head on a pike for it. By not being crazy. By not being lazy. By not being entitled. By working hard. By doing good work. By working hard. By doing good work. By working hard. By doing good work. By working hard. By doing good work. And by working hard.
I’m looking for a new place to live come January. Just me. If you need a new roommate, let me know. If you need someone to look for a new apartment, also let me know! And if you know of any cool apartments or places opening up, don’t let me know.
It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days… Lightly, lightly — it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.
