Current Residence: Bethesda, Maryland, USA (19 years)

Words to live by: "Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend."
- Albert Camus

So I've been on the road for the last couple weeks enjoying the great outdoors and working with a talented comic artist to scan her logo illustration. Lots of photos to process with beautiful scenery across Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia, but you'll have to wait until I return home to see them. How's that for suspense? =p

I would however like to feature this talented artist I've been working with lately and made me feel right at home. Her name is Jen :iconsunsetrising-art: , and together with her husband Ryan :iconredstarsong: who took me touring around their neck of the woods, I found myself with a whole new appreciation for Southern hospitality. Not to mention the chance to meet a rising star in the comic arts, and more than happy to showcase her work if it helps even in a modest way towards attaining the recognition she deserves.
