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”

Star Bored

March 26th, 2021 What still puts you in awe? On July 20th, 1969, human beings from the planet Earth, improbably and against substantial odds, landed on the Moon and took a walk on it. To say it was a big deal would short change the actual events. Over half a billion people watched it unfoldContinue reading “Star Bored”

Famous Last Blurbs

March 15th, 2021 This is going to be the last substantial post I make for a while, because this is the last post that’s going to make it in the book. It’s weird because some of you will read these words on a screen and some of you will read them on paper, and thisContinue reading “Famous Last Blurbs”

Found in Space

March 9th, 2021 More and more lately, I find myself in space. I’ve been feeling the everyday plaque of stress and anxiety building up faster and more frequently; I know it’s due to a complex constellation of reasons. Not that understanding it helps. To find myself out, I have to place myself outside. Way outside.Continue reading “Found in Space”
