Holy shit, has it been a long time. It’s been so long since I drew a picture or wrote any kind of words of relevance, that it took me 9 minutes to figure out how to log into this thing.
I don’t really have an excuse for the absence. A lot of shit has happened over the past 9 months or so since I’ve even been here. But I figured now would be a good time to let you know that I have a computer on the way. You see, my current computer, the computer I used to draw on, lost Illustrator around the time the pictures stopped. And getting it back has proven difficult, unless I chose some illegal ways to get it. I guess I could have done that, only I typically don’t roll that way.
“So what the fuck happened to you dude?”
I was surprised to actually get an e-mail or 6 from some of you various sorts about how much you’ve missed me. “What?” I thought. They couldn’t be talking about me — about this. That just isn’t possible.
A lot has happened during this past year. I was taking care of an old man. I was getting a new job (still teaching, calm down). I ended a relationship. It was all of these things that allowed all of this to be put by the way side.
“Damn bro, don’t be a fucking downer.”
But with every end, comes some humble beginnings. Things are awesome right now. So awesome, that I decided to post this story book for you. I was originally going to re-draw it, in color, with Illustrator, and add some new life to it. But then I lost it all, so that never happened.
So here it is, in all it’s glory. This story was written somewhere around 2002. It’s been in hiding, so be kind to it. Consider this my apology for a long trip gone. And only a morsel of that which should come. The story continues after the jump (that’s the part coming up that you have to click)…
Goodbye My Sweet (2002-2010)
