While I’m on a cartooning kick, I thought I’d share a little preview of Creacher. Sometimes the words come first, but in this case I just started off by drawing the characters and let them speak. I just started to look at the things I know and the things I wanted to share. These are some of the things I know and now you know them too.

Well I spent most of the day Saturday working on a Powerpoint presentation to go with a message on watching our thought lives, guarding our hearts and minds. I called the message “What Are You Thinking?” I decided to start with humorous stories from my childhood where my mom ended up asking, “What Were You Thinking?” I decided some simple humorous slides were in order. It’s amazing how well cartoons, the combination of words and pictures tel the story. I had some fun with these. I decided to share these without the story, so you can get the idea.

So you might why I am posting this so far after the day. Well the truth of the matter is I was going through my former posts and discovered that I did not post on February 2. It might seem like it’s too little too late. but I’ve made a commitment to myself about a daily post and I need to make sure that I keep up with that.
Commitments are important, even the ones we make to ourselves. If we let ourselves slip on them we may find ourselves getting slack and letting more and more slip. It’s a slippery slope we could end up repeating over and over again, kind of like that movie. What was it called?
Oh, that’s right, Groundhog Day.

I’ve been trying to express the way I’ve been feeling lately and that usually comes out in cartoons, So here’s a preview of this week’s Creacher.
Sometimes the best way to vent is to hit the old sketch board. Guys there is hope. We just need Jesus!

So I’ve been wondering. One of my favorite things on social media are the memes. There was a time when these humorous little pictures would get a little chuckle out of me and I really enjoyed them. It was an example of people stretching their wit, creativity and sometimes just a kernel of sarcasm to add a little humor to our day. Lately however, they seem to be becoming more mean and biting and people seem to be using them as a source of news. I have come to the point of wondering how many of the divisive issues we’ve faced over the past few months (years?) were the result of some pretty diabolical memes. I decided to do a little commentary on it, using, what else? memes! This is a preview of next week’s Creacher comics. I hope you like them, and share them but more than that, that they make you think.
