Warm Woolen Mittens

July 23rd, 2021 I wrote a post last week about how sometimes people get to my stuff after I feel like it’s had its moment. A few of those people have picked up Theia lately, and it inspired me to pick it back up and thumb through it myself. The character of Mittens came upContinue reading “Warm Woolen Mittens”

Cats Giving Men Fish

June 23rd, 2021 If you want to make an adult suspicious, be nice to them. That sounds counterintuitive, but it’s not. Common wisdom tells us that as we get older, we are required to become less naive, more cautious, and to refrain from being blindly kind to people in order to prove to others thatContinue reading “Cats Giving Men Fish”

2%

June 21st, 2021 Sometimes it takes an animal’s perspective to help us understand our own lives; the way that humans tend to overcomplicate things often gets in the way of seeing them clearly. This has become very apparent as I finish up hundreds of pages of squirrel research. I have fun facts for days (IContinue reading “2%”

Netflix Review: Sweet Tooth

June 6th, 2021 I just finished the first season of Sweet Tooth (now on Netflix). I am one of those nerds who has read the book; in this case, I own every graphic novel that collects the comic book series that Sweet Tooth was adapted from (and am a massive Jeff Lemire fan, the writer/artistContinue reading “Netflix Review: Sweet Tooth”

Freefallin’

May 30th, 2021 Sharing a warm-up sketch this morning for two reasons: 1. Brushfire is still very much my main project that I’m working on, despite yesterday’s surprise news that I’m releasing a sequel to Flip this summer. 2. Squirrels can be dropped at any height and survive. Physics will give you all the answersContinue reading “Freefallin’”

Why of the Tiger

May 24th, 2021 I find that using metaphor is helpful in explaining behavior or situations or phenomena in a way that encourages the person reading it to be less defensive and feel not attacked. So let’s talk about tiger trainers. First things first: being a tiger trainer is one of the dumbest careers in theContinue reading “Why of the Tiger”

Happy Earth Day from Mars

April 22nd, 2021 I was brainwashed as a child to love and deeply care for my planet. And I couldn’t be more grateful. If you’re my age, you might have been, too. So how did this happen? If you were a child of the 70’s and 80’s, you lived through what many consider to beContinue reading “Happy Earth Day from Mars”

Where No Ordinary Rabbit Would Dare

April 11th, 2021 This was a really fun one to do. Sometimes it just feels good to make something, as opposed to constantly be working towards a goal or multiple goals or all of the goals. I spent my day off watching all 13 episodes of Bucky O’Hare, a cartoon that came out when IContinue reading “Where No Ordinary Rabbit Would Dare”

Of a Feather

April 8th, 2021 This morning at work, I saw this bird. Well, no, I didn’t initially see it. I heard it. It was repeatedly trying to break its way into the restaurant, flying again and again against the windows and doors, which I found to be bizarre but fascinating. I took this photo and IContinue reading “Of a Feather”
