Inktober Day 8: Frail - Owl
•Some Stories Never Get Old•
Hi people! This drawing is very special to me. It is Owl, that eldest and WAY too talkative character from Winnie the Pooh. I really love these stories and though my favorite characters are Eeyore and Pooh, I really enjoyed drawing Owl as the wise character he always thought to be. Hope you like it!

An ideal day here in Austin, Texas. Another rooftop bar. Another set of drinks with adorable company. This time, mercifully, local.
And yet, unrelated to that ... I want to say something. Maybe you can relate. I think it is dumb as hell that I need to be so eloquent, so loquacious, so charismatic, just to be "enough". It makes no sense.
I don't always have great content. (Accent on the first syllable.) I really just want to be content. (Accent on the second syllable.) I've had to develop myself into a quote-unquote awe-inspiring person just to be anything but cast aside in darkness. Just to be invited out anywhere. Just for people to want to stop and say hi.
I'm a man who likes to write things, run and travel. I like being kind to people and making dad-jokes. I like watching sports and occasionally playing them. I like listening to good music and occasionally playing it. I like to eat good food and occasionally cook it.
That's it. That's the John Gorman Experience. I plan my weeks on Sunday evenings. I get my haircut once a month. Regular.
The whole running marathons, write socialist policy on a world-changing level, medium superstar, singer-songwriter, activist turned up to 11, sex-positive demigod, globetrekker ... Like, I should *not* have to feel like I need to be an all-star in 9 sports just to get on people's radar.
I'm not sizzle, although I have plenty of it. I'm steak. And I'm rare. I'm not your idea of a good time. I'm ideal. And that's enough. I'm home now. Watching Chiefs-Broncos. Eating pizza. With my cat. That's a Thursday for me.
Here's a sunset from stop a Westin with a woman who would make you belly-laugh and walk into a pole. Also a Thursday for me.
Get you a man who can do both.

Just wanted to share one of my personal faves. 🦉 Years ago, I painted this owl on a shamanic hand drum after recovering from a horribly long, nasty flu. I was still in bed and feeling icky but coming back to life and just needed to create... it’s in my veins and when I’m not in creation mode I feel caged in. ❤️ So this beauty came to life... wings spread and ready to soar! — I think it’s time to pick up a paint brush again!!........ Oh... lol I made that smudge feather wand too. 😉
