May 29th, 2023 Like a person, The Next Step isn’t and never was all good or all bad. And it was never a boy band. But it made me who I am today. Before I get to how, however, let’s talk about the stuff that never got made (or got made and then buried somewhereContinue reading “The History of The Next Step, Part VI: Unreleased Work, Legacy, and The Future”

Platform of Pain
May 19th, 2023 If you would have told me when I was a kid that I would eventually build my life on hurt, I would have told you that you say really weird things to kids. But you would have been right. I was having a recorded conversation with a friend earlier this week (forContinue reading “Platform of Pain”

April 19th, 2023 Hello there! I have two things to share: 1. If you’re planning on sending in fan art for Brushfire: Wave 2, you have until the end of April for your deadline, and 2.

Be The Sun
April 6th, 2023 It’s a weird phenomenon that we think of something nice to say about someone else and then battle within ourselves over whether or not we should say it. We should always say it. I got a gift today. As an artist, you’re always trying to figure out what kind of art youContinue reading “Be The Sun”
We Did It!
April 2nd, 2023 All because of you, we just raised the most money we ever have with a Kickstarter — by a whole dollar! We did not, however, reach the stretch goals we set for ourselves; that means no animation studio, and no audiobooks, at least for the time being. It’s disheartening, but we simplyContinue reading “We Did It!”
One Last Time
April 1st, 2023 No foolin’: today is the LAST DAY of our Kickstarter! My birthday is in exactly one month (that’s right, I’m a May Day baby) and if you’re the kind of person who loves giving gifts, then give yourself the gift of locally-made books (while investing in a totally rad creative project). IContinue reading “One Last Time”
The World of Brushfire and the Jojo Universe, Explained!
March 30th, 2023 I saved the best for last. So, this is it. Less than 48 hours and our Kickstarter is over! This is your last chance to be a part of this, and if you’ve been on the fence, I hope you fall over on this side. If either of these books are somethingContinue reading “The World of Brushfire and the Jojo Universe, Explained!”
March 27th, 2023 Stories can be simple, but looks can be deceiving. I’m always swearing up and down that, like an onion, my stories have layers. The words and images, names, places, and lines of dialogue, all exist on several levels, sometimes literally. This video gives you an example of that, from the first pageContinue reading “Reading Onions”
The Final Countdown!
March 24th, 2023 Happy Friday! Today’s video is about THE END of my Kickstarter (LESS THAN A WEEK LEFT) and all the pop culture stuff I’m into right now, which includes: – Fall Out Boy‘s killer new album– How we live in the best timeline, because on Wednesdays we wear pink, and we also getContinue reading “The Final Countdown!”
We Did It! Now Keep Going
March 15th, 2023 You like us! You really like us! First things first: WHOO HOO! I can’t believe how fast we reached our main goal. But we did. And it’s all because of you. THANK YOU. So is this over? Heck no! My heart really wants to reach at least that first stretch goal, whereContinue reading “We Did It! Now Keep Going”
