Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. My good friend Phil McAndrew blew up the Internet with the following inspirational advice post:


He targeted it to art students on the verge of graduation, but please--everyone could use a boost. Phil and I shared a table at Bethesda, Maryland's Small Press Expo (SPX) in 2009, and I tell you, the guy is the real deal.

If you're young or older, seasoned or green, go read the essay for an inspirational boost.

I'd never heard of him--but I really dig his cartoonery (the slide made me lol), and very good, obvious advice that I likely need to scream at myself in the mirror every day. :)
