Angels who walk me past,

and show the sights,

but never ask.

Don’t let this pass –

this trail of hot

blooded cries.

I will tell and let you know –

just how it feels.

Even sliding and hurting

upside down, I’ll beg

the prayer for

slow me down.

Giggle angels

at my malady

and hold the

trip wires taut.

Some perverted and

few line up and cough, cough, cough –

eat the scrapes.

Hold me hard

dear flutter flies.

Just hold me.

12-step illustrators program

12-step, Addiction, Feet, hand


It was suggested to me that I am “overworking” my illustrations. Very agreeable, I have resolved to minimize my line and focus on the basics – less color, more suggestion.

Sometimes, in an effort to create, my brain says more is better. Maybe I need a 12-step illustration program.

Thank you Ashley.

Don’t be distracted by the foot. The Blue Heeler is still, he is sleeping and dreaming. What a relief for the evening.

If you know Blue Heelers, you know the definition of action. He never rests; never. As a matter of fact, not even my naked foot distracts him. He is one of a kind.
