Something different this way comes

In this week’s comic, I revealed that I’m going on break. Why? Well, that’s a good question. And I’ve got all sorts of answers for you. I guess you could say there’s good news and bad news, depending on your perspective. Let’s see...

Raccoon animation is a bit trashy

I’m vying for a job as an illustrator and animator. They said they wanted to see an example of animation. I haven’t worked with Adobe Flash to create frame-by-frame animation for years. But I got back into it and created a short sample of bringing a...

Flashback to tomorrow and the 4th of July

Back in 2009, the 4th of July landed on a Saturday. Here we go again. Did anyone out there have this happen to you? “4th of July Weekend” (July 3, 2009) Lucky for me, I don’t work on Friday’s (at least not right now). That said, I’ll be...

Here’s what it’s like to be an artist

I love this video. I’ve seen this guy’s work in videos here and there but never knew the man behind the puppets. I love how he talks about his life, especially at the end. “Her friends are telling me that since this puppet … it’s like she’s...

Silly Sunday: Classic YouTube – “Ultimate Dog Tease”

Sunday funnies are the best. Sandee over at Comedy Plus got me going with this Silly Sunday. Here’s how she puts it: “Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs. The rules are simple, just have fun. This is a great opportunity to get to know other...

Draw (or write) your future

I have a life coach these days, and she’s into the Law of Attraction. I am too. In any case, I told her I know what I would love my future to look like. She then told me to draw it out in great detail. Then, just a couple of days later, I stumbled upon this...

Silly Sunday: “There Once Was A Man From Nantucket”

Sandee over at Comedy Plus set me up with Silly Sunday. Basically, it’s just to have fun and get to know other bloggers. I enjoy funny poetry so that’s my silliness. Most of us have heard a reference to the limerick “There Once Was A Man From...

I’ve got proof

I just received a copy of my new book Coffee Break Stories so that I can proof it. I have a standing coffee date with a buddy and he had been interested in how the book would look. I did an unboxing there at the coffee shop. We both agree that the quality is...

An early start on a dirty job

I goofed up. The most recent comic “Dirty Job” was supposed to post on June 7th, not June 1st. You can see the actual post by clicking here or just look below to the read it. Dirty Job What do I do when something like this happens? Well, I can do any...

Work, by itself, is just a means of making money. The beauty of working is it allows us to interact with people — to meet and connect with a variety of folks. I have met some of my best friends through work. The workplace was an environment where we could learn about each other and build bonds.

Perk at Work is about our experiences as humans. Sure, at it’s core, it is about a lowly cafe worker who chats it up with his regular customers. But they are sharing moments of their lives together, learning and sharing bits of information and, hopefully, learning to care about each other. Is there any greater purpose in this life than to love and be loved? Well, maybe to get the perfect cup of coffee but we can do that while we talk.
