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”

i love u all so much

July 22nd, 2021 Oh, m’gosh. First things first: my deepest, sincerest, most saccharine gratitude to every single wonderful soul who attended the Book(s) Release Party today, whether you showed up over an hour early, or stayed with me until the very end (and maybe even a few minutes past that). I’ve said it before, andContinue reading “i love u all so much”

I Want To Push You Around

July 19th, 2021 In just about 24 hours, Push comes to shove and will be released into the wild. I wanted to talk about my 7th book a little (and thank every single person who has been here since my 1st, too). I’ll see you soon at Issues Needed on July 21st starting at 5Continue reading “I Want To Push You Around”

Heartbreak Weather

July 15th, 2021 I’m still on the Old Chicago email list. For more than a few months, when I’d open one, I would feel heartbreak for what I lost. After a while, though, I would start to feel a new kind of heartbreak; I’d think of all the things I would have never experienced ifContinue reading “Heartbreak Weather”

Tangled

July 14th, 2021 There was a fun anniversary yesterday that I kept thinking on but never got around to posting about. On July 13th, 2003, I had my high school graduation party, and The Next Step released their first EP, called Tangled Cords. I know 18 years seems like a random and not very seminalContinue reading “Tangled”

Interview: Noggin Comics at Issues Needed in Apple Valley

July 11th, 2021 Who has a brand new interview for your eyes and ears to behold? Why, we do! If you’ve never met Nora and Kyle (otherwise known as Noggin Comics), then you’re missing out on the sweetest duo in our comic community. They have been nothing but kind and insightful since I met themContinue reading “Interview: Noggin Comics at Issues Needed in Apple Valley”

Hot Weirdo Summer: Limited Edition Print

July 3rd, 2021 I don’t sell a lot of original art or prints, but I wanted to do something fun (and I wanted to draw my crew!) for my upcoming event on July 21st at Issues Needed in Apple Valley. So here it is: “Hot Weirdo Summer,” a limited-edition print I’ll have available at theContinue reading “Hot Weirdo Summer: Limited Edition Print”

Morphin’ Time

June 26th, 2021 GEEKING. OUT. (Politely, of course.) It’s no secret that my pop culture influences are deep, vast, and embedded in my DNA. But few can call themselves legitimate cornerstones of my youth, and Power Rangers is definitely that. When I was a young(er) dude, my dad took me to meet Walter Jones, theContinue reading “Morphin’ Time”

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”
