My good ending with Krahnpix has morphed into an entirely new beginning with Krahnicles!
In the months after signing off this blog, I found that my interest in photography had also waned. So I sold my camera gear and bought a snowblower – maybe it’s a Saskatchewan thing. Now I’m impatiently waiting for snow.
I still had a problem – I missed having a creative outlet. Then I got this crazy idea that I should become a cartoonist. The awkward part was that my drawing peaked somewhere around grade two. But why should that stop me?
I had all the tools – I liked to laugh, I liked cartoons and I enjoyed my own sense of humour. The icing on the cake was that occasionally other people laughed with me. What could possibly go wrong?
I came up with some template ideas, drew some stick figures in funny situations and was incredibly fortunate to find someone willing to draw my ideas. The fun began!
I have now bestowed upon myself the title of cartoonist! And I still smile at the idea of a cartoonist who can’t draw.
So a new blog is born – Krahnicles. I won’t be posting cartoons on this blog so I’d be honoured if you checked out the new site and maybe even signed up to follow along. I’m pretty sure one of these days I’ll come up with a funny idea.
Have a good winter everyone!
