I love Thanksgiving. Though I’m not one of those folks that celebrates the misconstrued, weird history behind it, I do like the idea of being all thankful about everything all day.
In this often horrifying and crazy world, I actually do have a lot to be thankful for. I have an awesome family and an amazing wife that I recently tricked into marrying me. She’s amazing and I feel like a very lucky chap. I have an outstanding group of friends and colleagues around me. I’m ever thankful that I love what I do for a living even though it consumed my soul and traps me in a black hole where neither time nor socializing exist. I’m thankful that I have a job that I can listen to audio books and work at the same time. I am thankful for the Harry Potter audio books for being so well produced and enjoyable. Jim Dale is amazing. Thanks Jim Dale. I’m thankful that I can live with cats that somehow don’t kill me with allergies. And of course, I’m thankful that I have the privilege to share my work with such a kind, gracious and generally awesome group of art makers and art lovers out there. So to all of you out there that have put my work into a show, bought a painting, bought a print, said hello at an opening, shook my hand, gave me a hi-five, wrote me a nice email or message, interviewed me, blogged about me, commented on that blog post, or just thought, “Huh. I like this.” To all those and everyone in between, I thank you.
To get in the holiday spirit, I’ll be releasing 4 new prints this Friday, November 23rd, at 3:00 PM Eastern Time through my Etsy Store. Here is a list of the prints and all the info.
