Friday Update: Every Day People

'Everyday' is an adjective that means commonplace or ordinary. But the 'Every Day People' to whom I'm dedicating this update are the exact opposite of that description; they're the totally rare and exceptional people who check in on 'Character Of The Day' every week day looking for a cartoon.

For sure, I definitely appreciate anyone who takes any time at all, whenever, to look at these drawings and jokes. But! The Every Day People deserve a special mention because they (you!) play an active role in making sure that there actually IS a daily cartoon to look at.

I love doing Character Of The Day, and I will always draw stuff no matter if anyone can see it or not, but sometimes it's all too easy to just tell myself "There's a million other things I should be doing that are probably more important than posting a cartoon to the Internet. Besides, the Internet's got enough going on. No one will miss it if a COTD doesn't appear."

But the thought that there's somebody, or even a handful of somebodies, out there who are waiting for a cartoon, who are expecting it, who will actually be disappointed if one doesn't show up at some point during the day, well, that thought more than any other is what keeps me drawing and posting, what keeps COTD ticking along and running smoothly, without disruption.

Every Day People, I salute you. Thanks for all your help in this endeavour.

Have a Good Friday, all! After today's cartoon, COTD will be back on Tuesday.


  1. Knowing how difficult it is to come up with a new and creative and well-drawn and-rendered character every single day, I wouldn't be disappointed if a day or two went by without one. But I greatly do appreciate them each and every time. So, kudos to you, sir! Keep up the great work.

  2. Well, thanks, Milé. but Ima try hard to not let that happen. If a few people can seek it out every day then I can get at least a sketch or something posted every day. So, as much as possible, it'll continue to be 'Character Of The Mon. To Fri.' - no gaps, no breaks, no punkin' out. (Or Tues to Fri. if we're talking long weekends like the one just passed.)
