This is a bad sign…

True story: The other day I heard a literal 'knocking' on my 3rd floor office window. When I opened the blinds and looked outside, this is what I saw staring back at me:

That's a turkey vulture. And this was my reaction when I saw it…
If you've ever seen one up close and personal, you know that turkey vultures are, well… not the most attractive creatures.

When I asked a friend what it means when a vulture taps on your window, he quickly replied, "Oh, you're roadkill, buddy!"

Thanks, I feel better already!

And if that wasn't bad enough…

…a black cat crossed my path while I was driving the other night. I could have turned around and gone the other way, but to a guy who's literally got vultures knocking on his window, I was like, "Is that all you've got?"

Honestly, at this point… I'm just hoping I make it to Halloween!

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. I’m an artist, author, husband and father.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
