What an AWESOME 2010 Mental Health Awareness Month Cartoon-a-thon!!!

What an AWESOME 2010 Mental Health Awareness Month Cartoon-a-thon!!!  First, I want to thank all the heroes from the bottom of my heart for being brave enough to let me draw them!!!

DBSA – 25th Anniversary Photos at Englewood Resort and Spa

What an Awesome week at the the DBSA 25th Anniversary Conference in Chicago!!! The Eaglewood Golf Resort and Spa was a bit Bipolar... It had its ups and downs! One of the ups I loved was my room!

They even HAD CLUBS in their hands!!!

Anyway, the conference had so much going on that for a few moments, I had to take a "time out" of an event and just relax in my room.  Fear not, I will be posting a LOT of my highlights, videos, photos, and other unwanted stuff, here on my blog.

Going along with that, I wanted to share with you some photos taken by a few of my friends at the event.
