Justified Panic


This is panic at realizing I have not posted in nearly a week.

This is also general panic at the stress that the holidays seem by necessity to create.

This is essentially panic at realizing the inevitable shortcoming of meeting the perceived expectations of others and the consequential impossible expectations of myself.

Don't panic unless it is justified.

New Book!


As promised, I have some really exciting news to share: I have decided to launch my own book subscription service. Essentially I will be creating one book every three months which I will then mail out to subscribers.

In order to get better acquainted with the self-publishing process, though, I decided to use my alphabet creatures to create a simple test book entitled "Kamooks and Ploggits." The above image is consequently the cover of that book.

Please check out my new book website to see what you think.

As also promised, there is indeed a way for you to read "Kamooks and Ploggits" without buying a copy. If you click here and sign up for my mailing list, you will get immediate access to a pdf of the book. Furthermore, as I publish new books every three months you will receive links in your e-mail box to view the new pdfs.

I realize you are probably not as excited by all of this as I am. That is okay, but I hope it at least makes you smile a little.

I would even take a smirk.

Z is for Zollard


In looking back at when I posted "Y is for Yicklepus" I am shocked to see it has been six months. I never intended it to be so long before posting "Z". However, I do feel justified in that I can post this with some exciting news. I have just finished assembling an alphabet book with all of these creatures.

I self-published the book, and it will be available later this week. While I would greatly appreciate any sales from this project, I understand that most people will not be able to contribute in this way. This being the case, I will soon announce a way for anyone to view a free pdf of the book.

In an effort to try your patience, I am going to ask you to wait just a couple days more, after I make a large announcement...

I'm Really Good with Kids


Straight from Charlie Brown's nightmares.

Although, this kite just might be a match for the kite eating tree.

Prophetic Peripheral Vision


Please don't ask me how this works.

What I will say, though, is that it helps to be dead tired and strung up on caffeine.

One More Tine


I know, I know, this is a horrible pun.

Even still, I can not help smiling at it.

Trust No One


So, when I was getting the scanned drawing ready to post, I accidentally inverted the colours. I was about to switch it right back when I realized that I liked it much better this way.

That is the power of sastergoodment working for you.

Make mistakes intentional.

If you only knew how accurate that statement describes this blog...

Another Victim of Dubious Conception


After doing an extensive project this past spring that involved drawing cats, I realized the other night that I missed drawing their stripes and little paws.

I concluded by drawing one from memory. It sort of worked.

Poor kitty.

AHHH!!!

That should be enough to make any sensible person scream.

*pause*

AHHHHHH!!!

Prioritize Unicycling


This particular Sastergoodment drawing was sparked by my friend Rob from New Escapologist. With simply resolve, he used the phrase, "Prioritize unicycling," and moved on.

However, as the days passed, I could not get this phrase out of my head and knew I would have to make a drawing to correspond. This is an update to the present. If you would like to peek into the future, though, please read on.

This simple phrase by Rob has given me an idea for a new feature on this blog: an interactive feature. Simply put, I am going to open up my e-mail to accept odd phrases from anyone living on Earth. If I receive a phrase I am fond enough of, I will illustrate it and post it to Sastergoodment. If there is enough interest, I hope to be able to post at least one of these submissions every week.

Now wait, before you start flooding my inbox with suggestions, I have to lay down a few rules:

1. Please no famous quotes or even not so famous quotes.
2. I value originality and the absurd. A good approach to this is to ask yourself, "What would a semi-insane imaginary self-proclaimed mystic say?"
3. While some may prize vulgarity, I find it hard to draw while blushing. So you might as well keep those phrases to yourself.
4. Please limit your submissions to 11 per week. Any submissions over 11 will be burned and forgotten.

If I end up selecting your phrase to illustrate, I will send you an e-mail congratulating you on your coveted achievement. I will also name you in the post and add a link to your website.

There it is: something for you to do on a boring night.

And here it is – my e-mail address: Landisblair@gmail.com

I am off to the studio to wrestle with some ink.
