Now, I'm not one who usually gets involved or voices his opinion on political matters, until I see necessary... so the feelings portrayed in this sketch will be quite rare. All in all, a quote by the artist known as Banksy expresses more or less my general feelings on the subject, without getting too much into it all.
"A lot of people never use they're initiative, because no one told them to."

So, Agent Orange is coming along.... SLOWLY. I've had to take on some freelance animation job in order to pay for the printing of the books. So unless someone wants to freely give away some money to help fund the printing of our good friend Mr. Orange, the earliest I've planned on having the first book printed is by end of May. Until then, I'll just keep your taste buds pleased by giving you sketches and some sneak peaks of pages from the book.

... In other news...
... I'm starting a weekly online comic strip entitled - The Life of Rex Bunyan.
Now, the first thing you'd probably think is, "Wait a second... Rawls has NO time to do anything extra." Well, you'd basically be right. But I've made it a resolution to use every amount of my day creatively and constructivly and to stop procrastinating. So those fleeting moments on the train, or lunch time at work, etc, will be filled with things such as Rex.
I won't post any more Rex stuff on this blog, as I've been keeping a somewhat regular posting average on here every Saturday or so, with work, personal sketches and Orange related stuff.
I plan on posting a new Rex comic EVERY MONDAY! That way it's something for you all to look forward to at the begining of a new work week! I won't tell you anything about him, you'll just have to follow along. I'm excited to see what you all think.
