Sleeping Kitty Productions 2023

December 31st, 2022 Hello there. 2023 is a big year, as far as celebrating my (lack of a) creative career goes. It marks both 10 years of publishing books (a novella called Them, on April 1st, 2013), and 20 years since I released my first EP under the name The Next Step (Tangled Cords, onContinue reading “Sleeping Kitty Productions 2023”

Impossible Dream

November 26th, 2022 I tried several times to NOT write this book. Let me start at the beginning: I wanted to write something to celebrate my tenth year of publishing in 2023. I was trying to think of a way to get all my characters in one place. Let me tell you what I didn’tContinue reading “Impossible Dream”

The MCU: Far Better World

October 13th, 2022 My favorite part about watching people complain about the current phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that they are objectively wrong. The future belongs to those who can see it. At the convention in Rochester over the weekend, I had no problem choosing my favorite cosplay: a little girl, painted green,Continue reading “The MCU: Far Better World”

Introduction v.2022

July 20th, 2022 How does a person get another person to like them the first time they meet? That’s what required of us when we write these stupid distillations of ourselves. If you hate me two sentences in, then I lose you. Definitely for the moment, most likely for today, and possibly forever. No pressure.Continue reading “Introduction v.2022”

Stranger Than (Science) Fiction

July 15th, 2022 I know y’all have strong opinions on modern television sci-fi: some of you are Star Trek obsessives, some of you still won’t stop talking about The Expanse, some of you say sci-fi hasn’t been good in decades (and are a delight on the internet). For me and my money, nothing beats theContinue reading “Stranger Than (Science) Fiction”

Free Comic Book Day 2022

May 7th, 2022 It’s Free Comic Book Day, an event that celebrates an art form that has had not only a substantial impact on culture and society, but has a deeply personal connection with the people who love it. I’m one of those people. I create comics (see: The Weirdos: Volume I, a graphic novelContinue reading “Free Comic Book Day 2022”

Look Who I Ran Into!

March 14th, 2022 I just ran into my buddy, Bay, and he says hi! He’s wondering, too, if you have any chips. He also can’t believe we’ve already raised 54% of Fire & Ice — almost $1,100 — to tell his story. He actually got teary-eyed as I told him how excited people are toContinue reading “Look Who I Ran Into!”

Monday Bloody Sunday

February 20th, 2022 I spent half of today thinking it was Monday. Not just thinking it. Living it as though it was Monday. My day off. And that would have been fine, had today not actually been Sunday. Now you’re probably thinking, “Is there anything so dumb that this man won’t write something about it?”Continue reading “Monday Bloody Sunday”

inspo facto

December 23rd, 2021 As every year ends, we tend to curl up in our chair, stare out the window, and reflect on who we are, where we’ve been, and what the hell we’re even doing. That is definitely what I’m doing right now. As I learn more and more about people who make an actualContinue reading “inspo facto”

No Easy Way

December 18th, 2021 Don’t worry: there is not a single spoiler for the new Spider-Man movie here, besides that it’s one of my favorite films of all time and you should bring everyone you know. I just want to talk about one of the inherent qualities of Peter Parker — Spider-Man himself — that bearsContinue reading “No Easy Way”
