It’s Been a Long Time Coming

It’s been a long time coming, getting this blog post written.  I wish I could say that I’ve been busy writing and illustrating, but that’s not true.  I have, however, been busy.  Since I last checked in, I’ve changed jobs, sold a house, moved across the country, moved into an apartment, bought a house, and moved in there.  Whew!  Things are finally settling down on the job and home fronts, and I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things on the creative front.  Someday, I’ll get some new content out.

This move has also been a long time coming.  After 26 years away, I’m finally back in Arizona.  I love the desert!  The views, the weather, the much lower pollen counts.  Sorry, Georgia, but I don’t miss you.  OK, I miss the Pirate’s House in Savannah and Ted’s Montana Grill in Peachtree City, but that’s about it.  Fewer bugs, lower humidity, better traffic, no daylight saving time… I could go on and on.  I’m home!

Not much in the way of other news.  Shortly before the Surface Pro 6 came out, I got a great deal on the New Surface Pro aka the Surface Pro (5th Gen) aka Surface Pro 2017 (great naming decision there, Microsoft).   I love this thing.  Fanless, it runs cool, battery life is decent.  A very nice upgrade from the Pro 2 (personal) and the Pro 3 & 4 (work).  The i7 Pro 4 was especially hot, while the battery life wasn’t.  I have plans to disentangle D Lee Warren from BD Crowell on each other’s sites.  The two genres have nothing to do with each other, I don’t expect there’s a lot of crossover in the readers, and I don’t want kids to stumble onto the non-kid stuff.  I’ve already made some progress there and plan to continue down that track.

There were some dark times this decade for me and my family, but things seem to have finally turned around for us.  I’m looking forward to creating some new art.  Stick around.  I think you’ll like what you’re going to see.
