I am thankful that I can create and continue to have inspiration.

And most of all…. I am thankful for all of my regular, occasional, and new Hammermarks readers!

These thank yous are offered in no particular order and I am sure that this list hasn’t covered everybody that it should have.  But I am thankful for all of the good things and good people that I have in this life and can only do my best to return the favor and offer what I can in the form of my artwork and words.

Once again, Thank You.
