Just a Poor Boy

October 11th, 2021 Galileo was more than a line in a Queen song. In the early 1600’s, he and his contemporary Giordano Bruno were the kind of history that certain people would prefer we not remember. You see, for a long time, it was common knowledge that the entire universe revolved around Earth. That’s whatContinue reading “Just a Poor Boy”

The Universe Is Bigger Than God

August 16th, 2021 I get asked regularly about why I don’t believe in a capital-G God, mostly by people who are genuinely curious or just want a different point of view on things. I realize that there may be value in putting these words out into the world, to validate them and maybe other peopleContinue reading “The Universe Is Bigger Than God”

Live Free or Drive Hard

August 4th, 2021 Hi. Today I would like to talk to you about seatbelts. Even if you wear a seatbelt, you can die if you get in a car accident. So, please: stop wearing seatbelts, because my anecdotal evidence, my opinion, is more true than what Big Automobile and car safety professionals will ever tellContinue reading “Live Free or Drive Hard”

Brushfire Cover Reveal!

July 25th, 2021 My squirrels! I am beyond excited to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming all-ages (yes, this one is for everybody!) graphic novel, Brushfire. I’ve been working on this story for a long time (and as you can see, it’s titled Wave 1, which means that it’s just the beginning of aContinue reading “Brushfire Cover Reveal!”

Book Review: Until The End Of Time

July 5th, 2021 I’m obsessed with Brian Greene (but don’t tell him, play it cool). He’s a physicist who writes and talks about science in the best way: for everyone. He’s been on my radar for years, but I’ve only really been getting into his work over the past few. And not just his own,Continue reading “Book Review: Until The End Of Time”

2%

June 21st, 2021 Sometimes it takes an animal’s perspective to help us understand our own lives; the way that humans tend to overcomplicate things often gets in the way of seeing them clearly. This has become very apparent as I finish up hundreds of pages of squirrel research. I have fun facts for days (IContinue reading “2%”

Freefallin’

May 30th, 2021 Sharing a warm-up sketch this morning for two reasons: 1. Brushfire is still very much my main project that I’m working on, despite yesterday’s surprise news that I’m releasing a sequel to Flip this summer. 2. Squirrels can be dropped at any height and survive. Physics will give you all the answersContinue reading “Freefallin’”

The Truth is Way Out There, Part II

May 23rd, 2021 I took a pause between my last post and this one because I didn’t get to say everything I wanted to say about it. About the act of believing. The first half was an affirmation. This part is a warning. There are over 4,000 distinct religions on our planet. And every personContinue reading “The Truth is Way Out There, Part II”

The Truth is Way Out There

May 20th, 2021 I believe in something weird. I believe that the universe purposefully created the particles and the atoms that eventually led to human beings because it wanted someone here who could see, hear, feel and appreciate the universe itself. I believe this because I think the universe is inherently lonely. I don’t thinkContinue reading “The Truth is Way Out There”

Happy Earth Day from Mars

April 22nd, 2021 I was brainwashed as a child to love and deeply care for my planet. And I couldn’t be more grateful. If you’re my age, you might have been, too. So how did this happen? If you were a child of the 70’s and 80’s, you lived through what many consider to beContinue reading “Happy Earth Day from Mars”
