Last year, I began contributing towards a blog called UWDawgPound as a comic artist and creator of “Harry Husky and His 12-PAC.” I really enjoyed it as it gave me a way to connect with fellow sports fanatics and to feel normal about my obsession with sports. Creating a weekly comic also reinvigorated my love for drawing, which I discovered as a young’n.
Those of you who know me well know that one of my childhood dreams was to be an animator/drawer/something at Disney Animation Studios. I don’t think I’ll be pursuing that dream, but it’s been fun to revisit this passion and develop it. Not to toot my own horn, but I have been improving a lot over the past year or so…
“SO what up with the blog title, Justin? Why you so sad guy?”
Sadly, I won’t be continuing Harry Husky into the 2012 football season for many reasons. One of which is that I simply don’t think I have the same zeal for sports in general. I’ve realized that I loved sports simply because it brought me closer to my friends. So this year, instead of using sports to get closer to people, I am actually going to just make more of an effort to meet with people; to “do life” with people as pastors always say.
