“I am grateful to Randy for sharing his art journal on social media, for the value and quality of the works in themselves; but even more for Randy’s vulnerability in sharing his struggles with anxiety through his kindness cartoons. I see so much of my own experience in these cartoons, and they remind me that I am not alone. Thank you so much, Randy, for sharing your talents and your story to bless and edify others.”Tara Briggs Kirkey
“I have known Randy since highschool. Social media allows me to keep up with the many stages and iterations of old (and getting older) friends. And while I could ramble about the negative aspects of social media, I am writing about Randy and what his positive contributions to social media have meant to me. As someone who suffers with anxiety, social anxiety and depression, I have identified and related to most of Randy’s posts and drawings in the last few years. His art journal has expressed so much of what a lot of people can’t say.
Randy will forever be etched in my mind as the long haired, bearded hippie guy who was always good for some wisdom, some laughs or a hug. And it is good to see he his still out there in another city putting that into the world.”Angela Reynolds
