Charmy’s Army -November 26, 2018

11NOVEMBER2018_CHARMY - WEEK 48 - 1125-1201 - COLOR - STACKED - WEB


Last Sunday at this time, I was in la la land with the onset og the flu. The last time I had the flu was sixteen years ago. The last case of the flu had me down for two weeks. Yes, I was a mess and had never been so sick in my life. Fast forward to last week and I was kicking myself for not getting the flu shot this year. I cannot afford to miss work. My day job is extremely demanding. I even tried going in on Monday. I lasted just over three hours before I was headed to the nearest Urgent Care.

What a difference a week makes… and a difference Tamiflu makes when you get on it early enough. I am still weazing and coughing but I feel like new. Tomorrow will be a rough day though at the day job. I love my day job so I am itching to get back. I may dream of a life as a cartoonist, but I am rooting in reality and love my real job and the co-workers I count as my dear friends.

Enough with the health update.


I am so excited about the new year. I am going to spice up this blog. I am as tired of writing about myself as you are all tired of reading the same old stuff. “Oh, I did so bad a (insert show here)”. “I got to meet (insert random celebrity) and they said they love Charmy’s Army”. “I sold this and that”. Same old same old.

In 2019, I will continue my weekly blog but I will discuss issues or news in the cartooning industry. I would also love to do random cartoonist’s spotlights from time to time. I would love to begin with a spotlight of my one big hero, Don Martin who steered my style into the direction I needed to go in. He changed my art and my life. Look for this spotlight in January.

I plan on taking my dream more seriously next year. I am going to do only a few shows, ending in August, so I can focus on more comic books. I am going to try and get two more comics completed next year. As slow as this process is, I am shooting high. I have to also get my comic strips ready every month for the newspapers so I will be very busy.


I will announce my new goals next week for 2019. I was super aggressive last year and hit them all, except one… getting picked up by a syndicate. I knew in my heart that would not happen, but I had to put that on my list. Becoming syndicated is my goal every time I pick up my pens. Each time I write, I am working on that special level so I can get syndicated. This seemingly impossible goal will be on the list again in 2019…. along with another impossible goal.

This other goal is even bigger and has been a goal since I was 8 years old when I found out about this “position”. I will reveal this goal next week. Believe me, it is huge. If I can pull this off, the world of syndication WILL be mine soon.

TOON in next week for details.
