In case you guys didn't hear about it, yet... -
I’ve been making comic strips every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! Be sure to check ‘em out! If you like them, spread the word!
When I first wrote the song “Hairietta the Goldfish” and finished it with the line “And, thus begins the tale of Hairietta and me,” I had no clue as to whether I would ever actually continue the story.
Well, in the midst of finishing the Animals activity coloring book, I started fiddling around with my guitar yesterday and found an intriguing chord structure and picking pattern. It was very reminiscent of “Hairietta”. So, I naturally began writing some lyrics about some adventures that Hairietta and I could have.
I don’t want to give too much away, but the theme of the next album is going to be Space. I’m pretty excited about starting up a new set of songs, though I have no idea as to how long it will take me to complete it. It’ll probably be a good bit quicker than Animals, which was written sporadically over the course of about 5 years, I think.
At any rate, I’m going to try my hardest to have the lesson plans for the activity book finished in about 2 weeks. I’ll probably fiddle around with other tunes throughout that time, laying down some ideas for the new album when I need a break from the book.
Hooray for creativity!

Guys, this blog is super cool. If you dig animals, you’ll dig this blog.
The interior art for the activity book is finally finished!
Now, all that’s left to do is make the answer key, cover, and lesson plans.
I’m getting more and more excited for you guys to be able to play all of the games and color all of the pages!
If you’re an elementary school teacher or you know any, please ask them to send a blank email to email@example.com. They will receive a special packet of info about the book.
I only have 4 more activity pages to draw! Then, I’ll do the answer key and the cover, and the book will, basically, be finished!
MrJotz.com got a bit of a facelift today! -
Check it out!
Time to take a break, do some improv, and watch some stand-up comedy.
I know I keep pushing things back, but I’m focused now and will try to finish off the drawing part of the book by the end of this weekend.
Then, I have to make some lesson plans and get a few teacher friends to look things over to see if there’s anything I’m sorely lacking.
Thanks for your patience, all!
