I have been doing my comic strip “Jed & Kirby” for Serve Daily for about three and a half years. It has been a wonderful journey, but I am now ready to move on to something else. I came up with “Jed & Kirby” back in 2010. Of course, it was a lot different then and it evolved through time. But more recently, the fun of drawing “Jed & Kirby” honestly started to dwindle. I have evolved through time as well. Art is, of course, still my passion, and I know that “Jed & Kirby” was the spark of that passion. In February this year, I thought I would splurge on a digital drawing tablet. That was a great decision! I began teaching myself how to draw digitally. Once I was ready, I started selling my art on an online gaming-themed forum. People from all over the world commission me to draw for them, and I have been able to make a good amount of extra cash. That’s what I’ve been doing for the last few months, if you’ve noticed the absence of my comic during that time. I also have a YouTube channel where I create funny gaming and art-related videos. YouTube has become another passion of mine. I love entertaining people, making them laugh and feel good.  Of course, life always brings trials. My dad passed away in July after a hard recovery process from leukemia, and it was a hard time. There were, and are still, many emotions floating around my family, but my interest in art has never ceased ever since it began with the first “J & K” comic strip. My dad was an artist as well, and he was a big influence. He gave me tips and advice, and he and I shared the same massive imagination. I was reluctant to end the comic, but I knew it must happen. So I am officially saying goodbye! There will always be a special place in my heart for “J & K.” I hope a successful career in the field of the arts awaits me in the future, and if it does, or should I say when it does, I will always remember the time in my life that started it all.

If you would like to leave me a comment, I would love to hear it! You can email me at kirbydogs.contact@gmail.com. My recent digital artwork can be found online at: kirbydogs.tumblr.com. And if you are interested in seeing some of my gaming and art YouTube videos, my channel is youtube.com/KirbyDogs.
