What's the story behind the name?

Thumbsky was a mean-spirited family nickname for a habit, sucking on my thumb, I refused to quit. While being bullied by your family "sucks," I've chosen to spin it around. No matter how much verbal haranguing and how many acerbic slights I took, I just kept doing my thing. 

Thumbsky's motto "don't suck" is a shortened version of being told as a kid, "Don't suck your thumb," which I continued to do so much I wore the directive down. From the kitchen yelled all the way to the den sofa, "Don't suck." From the front of the car to the child-seat in the back, "Don't suck." I heard those two words so many times you could say it was a life lesson cloaked in an unnecessary obsession with social norms.

Combining my art background, humor, writing, and decades teaching yoga Thumbsky is a catalog of doodles and notes waiting for an audience. All artwork, descriptions and designs are original, copyrighted, and the usage of solely owned by me.

Don't Suck.
