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”

Nothing so Big

November 19th, 2021 There are days when we go through something that seems bigger than we can keep holding up. On those days, the small things can feel less than trivial. The mundane details of our normal lives are smears, becoming blurs along the tunnel vision we get looking at the massive, inescapable thing. IContinue reading “Nothing so Big”

I’m Hungry But I’m Not Hungry

November 5th, 2021 An exploration of addiction through my personal experience, evolutionary theories, and Galactus & the Silver Surfer.   “I’m hungry but I’m not hungry.” Before everything, it was a feeling. By now, I’ve heard countless people say this phrase or a variation of it. Before that, I used to think it repeatedly, sayContinue reading “I’m Hungry But I’m Not Hungry”

So What

October 20th, 2021 Almost four years ago, when I started writing about things that people generally don’t talk about on the internet, it was scary. I remember laying in a hospital bed and weighing the pros and cons of sharing these pieces of myself. There was a large part of me that felt like IContinue reading “So What”

Something > Nothing

September 28th, 2021 Someone close to me shared a video of a TED Talk about anxiety yesterday morning. I am nothing if not consistently anxious; if anxiety were an electrical current, I am always at a level where you would receive a static shock if you tapped on my shoulder. Beyond describing the different formsContinue reading “Something > Nothing”

How You Remind Me

August 9th, 2021 I like everything. This isn’t true, of course. In fact, if you’ve ever played Nickelback in my presence you are well aware there are things I actively dislike. But I’m told this a lot because, generally, when people start shitting all over something, I am one of the first to try toContinue reading “How You Remind Me”

Five

August 1st, 2021 Happy 5th birthday to my baby girl, Marvel. It is stupid to say a dog is my rock, but here we are. She helps me get through things that have been really hard for me, like sobriety and the death of my mom; she sits on my lap when I’m drawing charactersContinue reading “Five”

The Paperback Paradox

July 28th, 2021 “I don’t get it. Why do you have a book and I don’t?” That is a question I receive in infinite configurations and with consistent frequency. I’m going to share a secret with you and it isn’t a pretty one, and it comes in the form of a story that I’m kindContinue reading “The Paperback Paradox”

Everywhere You Look

July 20th, 2021 It’s been brought to my attention by multiple people over the last few weeks that I have been talking about Full House a lot, and watching it with curious regularity. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t begin questioning why I’ve been doing this. With the 90’s being the latest era toContinue reading “Everywhere You Look”

Your Own Damn Path

June 2nd, 2021 Evolution is determined by those who act, and the same who act also determine our history and our future. It’s not abnormal for me to get ahead of myself, so let me start over. Let’s say you’re a cave-person, and you find yourself faced with a sabertooth tiger. If you decide toContinue reading “Your Own Damn Path”
