It’s almost here, 1 more day till the re-launch of Kurtis the Red’s Den….While I’m more psyched than ever for the new blog to launch, I’m still sad to see this part of the blog come to a close. So, before everything changes tomorrow, I would like to make one final post to commemorate the blog as it was.
When I started this blog, it was an end to a search for a new platform from which to post. I’ve blogged at other sites before, blogger being one, another being a site called Posterous, but each of them eventually reached a ceiling as to how far I could grow. So, the search began for a new blogging site, and when I found WordPress, I decided to give it a try.
My first few days were a bit confusing…alright, truth be told, I was a little more than confused, I was down-right lost. However, it wasn’t long until I felt comfortable with all the different options and settings. I found a theme, customized my look, and tried my hand at begin a daily-blogger.
When I first posted here, I wanted nothing more than to simply digitize and catalog my drawings and artwork online…so that others could view them as they wished. But then, I got that first view, and I started to get comments, likes, and suddenly I had followers who felt my blog was one to watch.
So, I tried harder to be a better writer, a better cartoonist, and a I began to realize that I was having fun drawing. While I realize that this is just a blog, I also realized I had a fan-base (however small it may be). A dream began to form, a dream to be a professional cartoonist.
Now, with this post and the upcoming relaunch, I aim to take a shot at growing my comics, refining my characters, sharpening my writing, and getting noticed. Maybe someday my dream can come true, to have a career in something that makes me happy. A career doing something that I think is fun and makes people smile all across the digital world
(Someone once told me it’s good to have dreams, cause if you don’t…well, then you’re just sleeping.)

To make everything come together, here is the very first comic that I posted to this blog; Titled “I think introductions are in order”.
