Perseverance!

The above is a tattoo on my chest that means "perseverance." Just a reminder that when life gets tough, it is important to keep things in perspective and never give up on your aspirations and dreams. And those are my inspirational thoughts for the day :))

While You Wait (still)...

My last cartoon poked fun at Hillary, so here's one directed at Donald.  Remember the song "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" by Will Smith? If not, the punchline in this cartoon won't make sense to you...lol!  Here's a link to the song in case you haven't heard it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JcmQONgXJM  Oh, the August 9th cartoon is still being colored.  It should be posted soon, so check back. See ya'! -Tom

While You Wait...

The last cartoon I posted is still being colored, so in the meantime, I decided to post another one for you. I was just at my parent's house and we started talking about the presidential election that took place a few years ago in the US. Made me think of this cartoon. Sorry, Hillary :))

Before You See This In Color...

I thought you might like to have a look at this cartoon before it is colorized. Terrice did a nice job with the illustration and I can't wait to see how my colorizer (Christina) finishes things up. Once she sends me the final version, I will post it pronto! Stay tuned :))

Taking A Break From The Beach...

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your day. Where I live, there isn't a cloud in the sky and it's 87 degrees :)) I was hanging out at the beach and decided to come home quick to do some laundry.  I am not staying inside long though....the day is much too gorgeous. Once my laundry is done (it's in the dryer now), I am headed back out.  A person who I work with wants to go for a beer and I may take him up on it. In my town, there is a place called the Stony Creek Brewery.  I don't drink much, but it's a good day to have a beer on their outdoor bar area which overlooks a boat inlet.  With weather as nice as it is, lots of people will be there which always makes things more enjoyable.  Laundry's done! Thanks for listening! I am out of here.....

Dusty's A Lucky Speck!

I guess not all "dust bunnies" are bad ;-) Happy Friday everyone! I have to travel around Connecticut visiting properties my firm manages/leases. I don't mind because it gets me out of the office :)) After I make my rounds, I plan to call it quits and begin the weekend...Yes!  I hope everyone has an awesome day!

Down, Micro, Down!

Hey, you have to give Micro an "A" for effort :)) Enjoy your Saturday everyone! I may take the train into New York and catch a Yankees game. Go Yanks!

I'm Going To Chicago!

At the end of August, I will be traveling to Chicago to visit my best friend Dave. Great guy who I met in high school. During my stay, I am also connecting with a literary agent to discuss my children's book. Who knows, maybe something will come of it. The above is a pic of Dave and me when I visited him at his vacation home in Florida a few years ago. The photo was taken at a local restaurant that had an awesome outdoor eating area overlooking the ocean. We stayed at Dave's house for two nights and then drove to Disney World where Armani and her dance team performed at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Good times :))

Beware Of The Suc-O-Lux!

It isn't easy being a dust speck. They deal with so many things. Although, I guess they are no different than humans. We face challenges in life too. Take me for example; I am about to start my  long drive to work and I am hoping the commute goes smoothly (people in Connecticut drive fast and there are typically traffic delays along the way). Then, when I get to work, I am going to have a busy day with lots of demands. I am up for the challenge, but the daily grind can be a bit much at times. Hang in there Dusty and Storm! You're not doomed. You'll make it through, as most of us do :))

Dusty Is Such A Wise Guy...

Does everyone understand this one? Lol!  My artist, Terrice, and colorizer, Christina, did a nice job with the artwork, but I wonder if the joke is confusing. Send in  your emails and let me know. Time to enjoy the day! The weather in Connecticut is gorgeous, so I plan to go for a long run and then hit the local beach to soak in the sun. I hope your day is enjoyable too :))

A Message To Pam-Pam...

Hi, Pam-Pam :)) First, I don't think we would argue like the characters in the cartoon and I don't think you would dump a bowl of food on my head (or would you?). The reason I thought of you after I created this one is because of the sentence in the final scene that reads, "communication is key."  This line does relate to us. A simple "hello" from you would open-up a whole new world and is long overdue. Also, I guarantee the concerns you seem to have would never materialize; I am certain of this. Under my picture on the left, send me a message, you stubborn girl! It's private, so no one will ever know. If you do write and you don't promptly hear back from me, that could mean the message didn't go through. Therefore, you can also write me at tgiordan@comcast.net. Let's begin corresponding, Pam-Pam. We have a lot to gain and nothing to lose. xoxotommy
