This is my place for storing the art I make. Me? I’m Eric M. Smith, an illustrator. I often use the name Glimbit for things,
like an old web comic that no longer exists. Update: It does exist! It does exist! I post cartoons, comics, paintings, sketches, photos … a bunch of jpegs, really.
Talk to you soon.
What is “Glimbit?”
Glimbit is a little light. Shed a little light on the subject. Let your little light shine. That sort of thing.
Further more, (hey, you asked,) I used the concept of “little light” because of my high school comparative religions teacher, Mr. Dean.
Making train motions, Mr. Dean would chug into the class at 8:05 AM. Already playing on his record player was either “Sgt. Pepper’s” or The Doors. In his hand, a cup of coffee. Smiling, but not over-committed to any specific feeling of happiness. I think he was content. That easiness spread to most of us soon.
He made his way to the window. The blinds were usually closed. He stopped at the first window and began to twist the rod that opened the blinds. He would say: “I’m going to open these blinds just enough to let the light in, but keep the glare out.” He said that a couple more times as he continued to open the blinds.
That notion stuck with me, so Glimbit is about letting the light in, but keeping the glare out. Happily, you don’t have to know that for the test.
