I haven't managed the PO Box yet, and am not feeling quite up to posting my actual physical address, but in the meantime, I would like to let you know that
Yes, I Will Write Back to You.
As soon as I have an address where you can always reach me, I will put it here. If you are concerned that you are going to miss me when I'm gone, I invite you to write to me, and I will write back. I'm not really going anywhere. I will continue to exist. And if you ever find that yourself craving some piece of tangible proof that the world perseveres without the internet, feel free to drop me a line, and I will send you that proof.
I have a friend from high school who is an amazingly prolific and talented visual artist, who has a few times referred to his impressive body of work as the "detritus from my overactive drawing hand." I have an overactive writing hand, and will be happy to put it to good use.
I'm starting to draw a character here called the Letter Writing Lady. I think she wears purple, and has a bird feeder outside her window. Maybe some extravagant hats. Any costume designers want a piece of this? How about this one?No? You don't think? Yeah, maybe not my color. Or maybe it just doesn't work without the bird feeder.
