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”

We Are Not Shields

May 25th, 2022 Let’s give all the children guns. The people who have guns, who love guns, who make money off guns, are absolutely unwilling to do anything about guns, so the only solution I can think of is arming each and every child who has to enter a school building. If you’re thinking, “That’sContinue reading “We Are Not Shields”

Sunny Days of Rain

May 20th, 2022 Yesterday I went outside to pick up dinner. I could see the bright sun shining through the window before I left, so it was strange when I walked through the door and found that it was raining. For all the weather we get here, it felt like the most emotionally relatable. AllContinue reading “Sunny Days of Rain”

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”

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”

This Is Me Doing My Best

March 27th, 2022 Another high-profile musician passes away; another round of the internet mob with their opinions to share. During times like these, I feel it’s important that people suffering with and recovering from addiction use their voices, and with that, I raise my hand and walk up to the front of the classroom. TheContinue reading “This Is Me Doing My Best”

So Long, Farewell

March 21st, 2022 I’m probably just in a mood, or maybe the algorithm is joyously targeting me, but I just keep thinking about good byes. Sure, there are the big ones that social media seems keen to keep reminding me of, like I don’t think about my big good bye too often already. But it’sContinue reading “So Long, Farewell”

It’s a Cold, Cold World

March 18th, 2022 I’ve spent a lot of time talking about the world of Brushfire, and haven’t shared too much about Cold World, besides its title, release date and basic premise. That’s intentional, for sure: Brushfire is a story I’ve been working on for a long time, and it’s visually more fun to share. ColdContinue reading “It’s a Cold, Cold World”

Black Like Gold

March 16th, 2022 I’ve been trying to talk this idea out for a while now, but I should just try to write it down. Because I am an absolute idiot when I talk, and I am slightly less an idiot when I do not. So very slightly. There’s this oft-repeated warning about good people; it’sContinue reading “Black Like Gold”
