Hi, I’m Tim

This little corner of the internet is where I draw and write stuff.

I guess the idea for this site started back sometime in 2006 while I was a sophomore in college. I was staring at a blank notebook page in the library when I started to get the itch to create something on that piece of paper rather than take notes on it. So I picked up a writing utensil and…nothing happened. I didn’t haven the slightest clue of what I wanted to create. Essentially what I had was a little seed. And like any agrarian based society, I ended up burying that shiz. Over the next several years I would keep entertaining that little idea by starting a few different projects, none of which ever seemed to take root. But just before the end of 2011, I tried something new and I noticed a little stalk beginning to sprout.

This site is that little seed growing into something more.

    I kept scrolling and I was rewarded. I barely got a wink of sleep last night due to a cat jumping on my head so reading this blog with a cup of tea is easing me back to normality – thanks!

    Hilariously awesome illustrations. Question: do you have an RSS feed? I want instant access to your new stuff but refuse to use anything but my beloved RSS reader Feedly. Please and thanks!

    Hello, Tim,

    I like your illustrations and hey, nice to meet you. I love the narration at the end – the desire to contribute to online conversation, the analogy to planting and the seed that sprouted. Keep drawing, watering your plants and sharing. Regards, :)

    thanks for sharing your story! love your visuals! I especially like the freefall one, cause it takes a lot of courage to actually pursue ideas we have, and I’m sure it can feel like freefall at times, haha.

    Exploring wordpress is a lot like using a public restroom. I visit each new blog holding my breath not knowing what to expect. Your blog is like one of those rare bathrooms where the toilets are sparkly clean and the paper towels are well-stocked and there’s a little jar of potpourri on the sink counter. I think I’ll stay here a while…

      JACKPOT! Thanks, Cheryl! I’m totally about getting awards, but I’m terrible at participating. I’m kind of a ‘rogue blogger’

    Even though your a bit on the ‘rogue’ side (I totally support that and kind of wish I went that route for this, haha), I nominated you for the Very Inspirational Blogger Award! ;)
