The first thing I want to do is acknowledge you might be one of the people who may be hurting today.
Mother's Day is hard for people who grew up without a mother, had a tough relationship with her, or had their mother pass away. If that's you, fam, I just want to say my heart goes out to you, and I don't want to be insensitive to your pain.
My Mom and I have certainly had our ups and downs, but I am thankful to have a good relationship with her. She is out of town today, at my sister's house in Tennessee.
I made sure to call and to make sure they had a great Mother's Day.

In other comic strip news, I dropped the ball, so my FREELANCER LIFE comic strip series only had one episode in April. But thanks to our sponsors at the No Pants Project, there will be two in May, including with a brand new episode which will debut on their blog this week.
One more Mother's Day themed thing: When I was drawing comics for an e-learning company called Study Island, the script for Herman Heed: The Case of the Most Valuable Video Game Ever Made called for an elderly woman to appear for a few pages.
SO I snuck my grandma into the story! She had just died a few months prior, so including her in a speaking role in this comic was part of my mourning process.
Later, when I was a salaried employee at the company, I mentioned to the writer (aka my supervisor) that I had drawn my grandma into the story! The look on his face was priceless!
If y'all wanna see more Herman Heed, just CLICK HERE and let me know. I have the pages saved, so I can share it with you, if you're interested.
So that's enough for this week, I think.
I'm not accepting any more comic book artwork clients for now, but I would love to take on more clients for my comic strip service.
