Brushfire Has Arrived

June 30th, 2022 BRUSHFIRE IS HERE!! Please don’t watch this video. I cry in it and it’s super embarrassing for both of us. But you have no idea how excited I am for this one. Some key notes from the video you should know: Both covers (regular and variant) arrived safe and sound this afternoon.Continue reading “Brushfire Has Arrived”

Happy 60th

May 31st, 2022 My mom’s birthday is today. She would have been 60. I’ve been real stressed because life is a stressful place but there is a thought that’s giving me peace. When people talk about what their loved ones are doing in heaven, it is often something boring. Like, “I know grandpa is upContinue reading “Happy 60th”

Stranger Things 4

May 30th, 2022 Stranger Things 4 is a masterpiece. It is one of the best-ever examples of genre storytelling, and how it can explore complex emotional and psychological ideas that traditional storytelling just can’t. It’s both affirming and inspirational, for a person like me. I will absolutely spoil nothing here, but I do want toContinue reading “Stranger Things 4”

Good Time

May 1st, 2022 It’s my birthday today. I put on the calendar “write something heart-wrenching, soul-baring, way too much, you know, like you used to” and who am I to argue with the calendar? Living with the problem of addiction means I will always be hungry for more. This remains true in the case ofContinue reading “Good Time”

Second Act

April 13th, 2022 I did the math. If I live as long as my mom did, I already hit middle age at 29. I think about hills. What it’s like to get to the top of one and then roll, fantastically, without fear, down the other side. It’s what I should be doing. Hands upContinue reading “Second Act”

[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace

March 24th, 2022 I freaking love Star Wars. Always have. There is, to me, no such thing as bad Star Wars. I’m not of the original generation of fans (because they are old and I so clearly am not), so it always existed in a peripheral way to me until the Special Editions were releasedContinue reading “[Clone] War & [Clone] Peace”

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!”

i made this for your fridge

March 10th, 2022 I’m a firm believer that when I have feelings while I’m creating something that it will hold those feelings and then give them to the person who experiences the art. From my personal interactions, this seems to be true. I’ve had people reach out after reading something and say, “When I gotContinue reading “i made this for your fridge”
