Pluck the Day: 12-07-2015

Thanks for checking out Pluck the Day! A challenge to myself to post an original drawing/sketch/cartoon/comic at least 5 days a week.

I hear the train a comin’
It’s rolling round the bend
And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when…

Johnny Cash “Folsom Prison Blues”

I wrote a short story that is currently under Beta review.  Part of the story is centered on a train station.  So while at work today, I grabbed some printer paper and knocked this out.  One of the advantages of working for a big IT company is that there is always plenty of printer paper around. 

It is becoming harder and harder to find time to draw each day, let alone find time to think about what I want to create, but when I do have a few minutes to put something together, I feel extremely satisfied.  With that being said, if you have any ideas/suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments.  🙂

On that midnight train to Georgia, yeah

About OxenTrot

During the day, I am a mild mannered desk jockey who helps to manage a large IT company.  At night, I am a family man, who is insanely in love with his wife and a proud daddy to an amazing girl.  But in the pre-dawn hours, as most everyone else is still asleep, I am my alter ego.  During that time, I am: OxenTrot. Ox was a call sign bestowed upon me while I was an active duty United States Marine, mainly in tribute to the fact that I was a major gym rat. After 5 years and three tours of duty, I reentered the civilian world.  My call sign was replaced by my actual name but the Ox still lived inside. As I began to adapt to my new life, I also began to take on new adventures, such as starting a family, getting a “big boy” job and taking on endurance sports.
