The Writing of Things

Welcome to my writing place. I write things. I’m not a professional. Just an amateur, simply writing for the fun of it.

It’s Chocolate Time

It’s Chocolate Time

An Easter Haiku. It’s been nice to have the long weekend to write and draw. Happy Easter all. It’s Chocolate Time!

Death. Is it the end?

Death. Is it the end?

This was for a #HaikuSaturday post that I made on Halloween. I’ve been a bit lax at posting here. Better late than never I suppose!

Flickering Flame

Flickering Flame

Another #haikusaturday. I followed along with another Bardot Brush tutorial to create this candle (love Lisa’s tutorials!). I’m still feeling a bit heavy but trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel.

Honey

It’s #haikusaturday. I have a new full-time job. I love the organization but working back in an office full-time (when I used to work flexible hours from home) is really taking its toll. This is how I feel.

A lone tree

A lone tree

Another Haiku for #haikusaturday. I’m on a weekend get-a-way in Nanoose Bay. As I look out the window of our Airbnb, I notice an incredibly tall lone tree towering above everything. I feel like it’s reaching beyond, for something humans will never understand.

Bob-o-lob: Magic

Bob-o-lob: Magic

In this comic strip, Bob-o-lob’s friend Cornelius the Caterpillar asks Bob-o-lob why he is magic.

What makes you magic?

Smokey Sunset

Smokey Sunset

After joining Twitter, I learned that there is a hashtag for #haikusaturday. I had never written a haiku before. This was my first attempt. I was (sadly) inspired by the smokey air here in Vancouver. So many forest fires right now.

Bob-o-lob: Snail Mail

Bob-o-lob: Snail Mail

Welcome to my first attempt at a comic strip.

Growing up I loved the Garfield comic strips. One of the first characters that I ever came up with was Bob-o-lob the Magic Snail. He came to me during on of Noel Fielding’s Art Club sessions during COVID.

Wiggly Squiggle

Wiggly Squiggle

Wiggly Squiggle is a story of a squiggle that just doesn’t believe they are ‘enough’. Wiggly tries to fit themselves into other popular shapes, merely trying to “fit in” but nothing feels right.

After many attempts, Wiggly takes some time to think about the ways in which they are pretty awesome and finally starts believing in themselves.
