I just spent three weeks at an artist residency for cartoonists at Atlantic Center for the Arts in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. I am still absorbing the experience. Part of what impressed me was the adventurousness of the cartoonists involved. Most of them are younger than me and it was interesting to be around a group of people so relaxedly enmeshed in the internet. For the longest time, I've wanted to make a blog, but have been afraid - mostly for ridiculous, twentieth century, "I am old" reasons. My experience in Florida has made me want to take some leaps. For me, a blog is a leap. Here goes.
