The Adventures of Someday Mouse

The end of 2014 was unexpectedly turbulent; I was involved in a car accident which provoked a near death experience, and I dealt with the untimely passage of a friend and mentor. Both instances forced me to reassess my aspirations in life and I began asking questions like: What's important to me? What sort of impression do I want to leave behind for future generations? How much time do have left? What does it mean to really live?

Up until the point I was faced with my own imminent mortality, I had never truly considered these thoughts -but the idea of leaving any unfinished business behind was scarier than the reality that my time here is limited. Needless to say, the more I ruminated on this fact, the more I realized how every moment was unmistakably precious, and I needed to focus my efforts towards expressing gratitude for every additional second I had been gifted. How that gratitude would take shape, was still a mystery to me, but I quickly found myself funneling attention towards the instinct to create.

Shorty after these unfortunate events, I returned to San Diego in order to spend time with my family, concentrate on healing myself and building the next chapter of my life. As a result, 2015 has proven to be a very satisfying period of regrowth and development for Yours Truly. I have many accomplishments to share with all of you in successive Blog posts, but my most prized achievement in the past year centers around a self-published book, geared towards sparking the limitless potential lying dormant in all of us.

The Adventures of Someday Mouse was initially meant to inspire children, but as the tale unfurled its meaning I realized that this story had the potential to appeal towards all ages, races, genders, and philosophies. My suspicions were validated during the book's debut at
The 2015 San Diego Comic Con International, where Someday Mouse generated a positive buzz from a wide variety of convention attendees.

The Adventures of Someday Mouse

The Adventures of Someday Mouse tells the tale of a tiny, genderless Mouse named Someday who has written a long list of things to accomplish. Initially, Someday's story began with only a short list of about nine tasks, but in the process of writing and illustrating the book, Someday's list of ideas blossomed into ninety-nine feats that included everything from common household chores to the initiation of wild adventures, sprinkled with the occasional emotional breakthrough.

This is Someday reading a long list of expectations.

 As Someday's journey unfolds, the multitude of trials, tribulations and triumphs, lead to self discovery and a sense of inner peace, thus allowing our little Mouse to truly appreciate the inherent beauty in every moment. Having secured the greatest treasure at the end of this quest, Someday Mouse can finally rest -leaving the reader with a subtle reminder that our time is finite and we are meant to seize the day when the moment is at hand.

This is Someday seizing the spirit of adventure.

I secretly harbor high hopes for The Adventures of Someday Mouse. My humble dream is to one day see this little Mouse existing within every home, in some form or fashion, gently encouraging this generation and the next to strive for their limitless greatness.

This is Someday Mouse, humbly taking a bow.

You can attain your own copy of The Adventures of Someday Mouse via my Etsy Store or the gift shop inside The Oceanside Museum of Art. There are less than 500 copies of the book left from the first print edition, so I would secure your own Someday Mouse as soon as possible.
This is a little snippet of my Etsy Shop.

Each "Someday Mouse" book comes with its own certificate of authenticity.

All of the "Someday Mouse" books are hand signed and editioned.

                  One last note: If you happen to truly fall in love with little Someday Mouse, I would encourage you to set up an appointment with Yours Truly and permanently inscribe an homage on your lovely visage. Each illustration within the pages of The Adventures of Someday Mouse was designed to double as tattoo flash, reminding you that your Someday is already here...

 Thank you for joining me today
and take care until next time.
