New Interview With Landon Shepherd!

December 28th, 2022 Gosh, I love this so much. I reached out to my friend Jennifer to see if her son Landon, an extraordinary young artist who I featured in Brushfire: Wave 1, had any questions to ask about the series or creating art in general. Boy, did he ever. I was hoping he’d haveContinue reading “New Interview With Landon Shepherd!”

Creator of Cooties

December 28th, 2022 “Sometimes I think the goal in writing a book is to ‘create energy’ – God save us from a raft of tepid reviews or (very possible in today’s publishing climate) no reviews at all.  If people are talking about a book passionately, that’s a good thing – we might even use thatContinue reading “Creator of Cooties”

NerdinOut Con 2022 Day 2

October 9th, 2022 Today at the convention, a kid walked up to my booth and picked up a copy of Brushfire. He looked carefully through it and then told me he wanted to look at everything in the room before he decided on what one thing he would buy. He told me he might beContinue reading “NerdinOut Con 2022 Day 2”

Not Too Little, Never Too Late

August 19th, 2022 When people get comfortable around me and my sobriety, they start to ask more complicated questions about it. The one they inevitably get to is: “Do you miss anything about drinking?” I do. Of course I do. Too much for a single post. But I want to talk about something that mightContinue reading “Not Too Little, Never Too Late”

a squirrel, a reality star, and my addiction

July 14th, 2022 If you know me even a little, you know that I think pop culture is important, and that I use it to make sense of our existence. The following is an ambitious use of popular culture to explain behavior that is not popular at all, but I really hope you’ll follow. I’veContinue reading “a squirrel, a reality star, and my addiction”

Happy Brushfourth of July

July 4th, 2022 “Brushfire exists to reveal and respect the truths of the universe, and to protect and provide for all of its inhabitants.” I had to find a new way to celebrate the 4th of July, y’all. For most of the people I know, freedom — religious, personal or otherwise — does not existContinue reading “Happy Brushfourth of July”

Brushfire Has Arrived

June 30th, 2022 BRUSHFIRE IS HERE!! Please don’t watch this video. I cry in it and it’s super embarrassing for both of us. But you have no idea how excited I am for this one. Some key notes from the video you should know: Both covers (regular and variant) arrived safe and sound this afternoon.Continue reading “Brushfire Has Arrived”

Building an Afterlife

June 4th, 2022 I’m writing this while my human blood is still mostly replaced with coffee, so I hope it’s coherent. A giant hug and a supermassive thank you to the kind souls who came out to support me today; I don’t know what I did in dreams or a previous life to get youContinue reading “Building an Afterlife”

Kicked To Death By Rabbits

April 4th, 2022 A few years ago I did an escape room on my birthday. It was designed to look like the interior of a spaceship. I looked up photos of the room online and spent weeks getting excited for it. When we arrived and my group finally got inside, the room was tiny. IContinue reading “Kicked To Death By Rabbits”
