Hello friends and fans,
As some of you know, I've been dealing with health issues over the past month. I am recovering every day and slowly getting back to work. You can help keep Believe In Wonder on track and continuing to make imaginative and inspiring work – consider purchasing some of our original artwork, or one of our published offerings like the Wonderous Flights coloring book, You Can Rely On Platypi, or Crow In The Hollow. If purchased directly from us, you'll get signed copies!

Santa Propaganda Poster 2016!
It's done! Once again, I have indulged my love of all things "Santa" and produced another Santa Propaganda poster for 2016. This is the fifth year, and I don't see any end in sight (I really love doing these.) I decided to go with a Mrs. Claus center poster this year, inspired by Rosie the Riveter, but with her own magical flair. There is a very intricate story in my Santa posters, one I hope to someday put down as story. In the meantime, please enjoy my little Christmas flights of wonder.
This, and all of the illustrations in this series, are available for order directly from yours truly. Message me with a request if you are interested in owning any one, or all, of the Santa Propaganda posters. They are truly one of a kind. #believeinwonder #santa #santapropaganda

So, at the end of September, I hurt myself during my first week working at the library (it was a lot more strenuous than I have originally expected.) I wasn't getting better, and the pain was really hard to deal with. I ended up going to the emergency room three times, and eventually one of my doctors ordered a CT scan and discovered I had a very aggressive virus called necrotizing fasciitis. I ended up have four surgeries over the course of a week. I won't go into details, but suffice it to say that I was pretty torn up before they got the virus under control, and eventually I was moved to the burn unit at Emanuel Hospital. Over the course of another week I had to learn to walk with a walker, I pulled a NG tube out of my stomach through my nose because it was super uncomfortable (a proud moment for me), and I had a lot of time for introspection. Laying in a hospital bed gives you a real moment for self evaluation, and a chance to look at the world in a different way. I feel really blessed to have a family that kept up with me, and nurses that indulged my moments of universal clarity and deep spiritual realization (we had some great conversations.) Eventually, I decided I wasn't going to lay there, so I got myself up and started to get myself ready to recover. It's going to be a long road, but I'm determined to get my health issues under control.
I know that I could have died, and I feel that even though I'm still weak and recovering, I came out of the hospital stronger, and with deep sense of clarity and purpose. I know what I'm meant to do – inspire creativity, encourage imagination, and always #BelieveInWonder.
