Cartoon Steve tries to play cards, except that he is frustrated because he does not know how to play the game. That seems to be the story of my, er, Cartoon Steve’s life, not knowing how to do what everyone else is doing. He isn’t too mad, actually. He is just frustrated trying to figure out what to do next. Playing the Game This artwork was somewhat inspired by real life, sort of.
Cartoon Steve drives a tractor through an overgrown field to cut the grass. ‘Tis the grass cutting season, after all! One day last week, I had planned to go out after work and start cutting the grass in the pasture.

He does (as of the time of this writing) also appear in winter garb in the header graphic up above. But because of the winter cold in this view he has pulled his cap down lower and added earmuffs and mittens, too. A guy has to do what he can to keep warm, after all.
The first day of Fall has arrived! Here’s hoping you have a great season ahead of you. Season changes are special. After all, they only happen four times a year.
