no risk, no reward.

Drawings, Writing

what is a risk?

1. a situation involving exposure to danger.
synonyms: chance, uncertainty, unpredictability, precariousness, instability, insecurity, perilousness, riskiness
2. expose (someone or something valued) to danger, harm, or loss.
“he risked his life to save his dog”
synonyms: endanger, imperil, jeopardize, hazard, gamble, gamble with, chance

risks make us vulnerable.
vulnerability makes us scared.
over the past week, i have been pretty scared…

and pretty pumped.

i have had the honor of illustrating for two blogs this week.

Chris Conzen’s blog post, “Who Decides What’s Authentic?



and Joe Ginese’s 150th post, “Its been a while…”.

im overwhelmed at the response these two drawings have received. this risk and the growth that it’s partnered with has already yielded a reward. intentionally designing and producing #suedles is a trend i hope to continue well into the future.

  1. Love this my friend. I so appreciate your ability to communicate through your art – it’s a medium I’m not entirely comfortable in but still appreciate as a fantastic vehicle for storytelling. I also love that someone like you, who I consider to be so very talented, still sees sharing her gifts as a risk. It gives me hope to know we’re all in this together – whether we draw beautiful doodles or slightly off-kilter stick figures. 🙂

    1. Thanks for reading and commenting Lisa! It difficult to put anything out there and to share your story in general. It’s much easier to do so with encouragement from folks like you. 🙂 can’t wait to read YOUR next post!
