HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARTOONS BY HILARY!
I can't believe it, but one year ago today I started Cartoons by Hilary and me oh my amd I so happy I did that. So much has happened in the past year (namely the BOOK DEAL) but also, I have found a voice in my art, and support in that voice from all of you. One year ago also marks the time I decided to leave my 9-5 job to pursue something I had to believe was possible. To live a life I wanted, move to New York, take risks, be ridiculous, and never think too much ahead. Along the way I've discovered Hungover Girl, Jimmy the Dog, Lady in Robe, Stay-at-Home Roommate and Social Sally, and I've also seen that there's no point in wasting your time, unless you want to waste your time on the couch watching Bob's Burgers then there's definitely a point in that.
So here's to another year of cartoons, of expressing myself, and of being grateful that you all allow me to do so. My grandfather said it's important to "always have something to look forward to," and right now, I got a whole lot of that.
