The inspiration for this web site and comic strip was an unexpected and uninvited visitor to my life. I had not picked up a pencil to draw anything for over 30 years. I was not a writer, I had no creative hobbies, I did not consider myself a particularly creative person.
Out of a simple conversation with my sister, I followed a wisp of inspiration and started to create episodes, characters, drawings. Those ideas would not leave me alone until I had taught myself how to draw and built a home for the series on the web site, www.contentmentisforcows.com
In the process, I rediscovered the joy of being creative. I hope readers of the comics series and this companion blog, enjoy the stories and perhaps find a little inspiration to follow their own creative spark.
