One of my favorite days of the year! Old Punxsutawney Phil pops up to see just whose shadow he sees. These days it could totally be anybodies. I narrowed it to Bud Selig, Tiger Woods, and Josh McDaniels. I finally settled on Selig. He’s so much fun to draw.

This was a rough draft that I did for the Tribune on Friday that didn’t make the final cut. I liked it so I decided to post it as my daily. Did I say daily? Yep. I’m revving it back up to 5 a week again starting today. You’ll see some new stuff on 9News as well. It’s been a good break for me and I appreciate your patience as I took a little time to tend to some much needed business to move forward in my life after the Rocky. I have some things to share from my break. But before I do, I’m asking all of you to help me. As I rev back up I’ll be making some additions to the blog. I need your help to spread the word about the blog, the cartoons and that I’m back to five a week. I’m hoping we can add some new readers in the next few weeks, but I can’t do it without your help.
I’ spent some of the time off rebuilding my portfolio site at http://www.littoonzstudios.com
I’m pleased with the results and if you have anyone you know who needs comic art work, animation or illustration please feel free to pass the link along.
I’m also playing with changes here. I’m exploring the idea of adding a thing called mingle, which basically allows you to chat with myself and fellow drew crew members live.
I’m planning to add a real store when I can get some products developed.
Lastly, I’m developing a Web comic that will be very different from the sports stuff I have done for 27 years. I’ll keep doing this and do a web comic two to three days a week. The site is being built (it will be housed at a different site) and the process is underway. I’m losing sleep over this one because I’m so excited about it. It will give me a creative outlet I feel I have needed for quite some time. For those of you who don’t know, sports cartoons was not what I wanted to do when I grew up, drawing comic strips was. With the changes in the newspaper industry I’m not sure print is the direction to go these days. With the advent of the iPad and the Kindle I think comic strips will have a renaissance on a new platform. It’s vital for me to find new ways to do what I do.
More than ever I treasure my readers. Thanks to all of you for continuing to stop by daily to read and offer comments. You’re the best!
