My hilarious friend @colefarrell tweeted this one that had me LOLing : "Quitting soda is going well and I feel awesome and the next one of you to look me directly in the eyes will have your face clawed clean off."

I also deeply miss @prodigalsam's tweets, but understand why he stepped away. A couple of my favorites of his:

"These kale chips taste almost exactly like I wish they were potato chips."

"Watched a video on YouTube about how to beat a level of Candy Crush. So what are friends like?"

Here are a few of my favorite tweets I've illustrated:

Sammy Rhodes: "I wish I had more time to read" he said as Netflix automatically played the next episode.

Lecrae: If we live in constant fear of people’s thoughts of us and avoid or fight their challenges & critiques, we won’t grow.

Allison Tanenhaus: how do u download the glade plugin

Bill_Nye_tho: If u get bullied bc u love to read/learn just remember I GOT UR BACK SO HARD WE RIDE TOGETHER WE DIE TOGETHER WE LOVE COOL ROCKS TOGETHER

Jake Weisman: It’s not you, it’s DiGiorno

Twitter has given me a lot of inspiration to draw and illustrating tweets has turned out to be a fun creative exercise.

Fun fact: The very 1ST tweet I drew was for Cameron Strang, and he replied to me, which was very encouraging starting out on Twitter.

Has anyone live tweeted a funeral yet?

I'm closer to 40 than I am 20, so I'm basically 50, go ahead and call it 60. Now I'm retired and I'll be 70 before I know it, then 80. #life
