I’ve submitted some work to the Ridgeside Art gallery for their Pretendium show. I’m very excited!!!
I was originally planning on mailing this off to my family in Rupert, but I ended up liking it so much that I thought it would be a good idea to submit it for the auction. It’s got a starting bid of $50, and hopefully someone will appreciate it enough to perhaps double the cost…
That aside, I will look at how much it is to make this into prints or postcards!
I’ve been working on a lot of art lately but I’ve not been diligent enough to remember to post the stuff EVERYWHERE…
So here is a comic about encountering an older lady while at the Real Canadian Superstore (the selection is great though but I s2g people need to stop running into one another there)! I’m prone to finding people’s “kids these days” complaints funny, but Andrea just gets really mad…she was literally muttering to herself, “Don’t pick a fight with a lady at the grocery store…don’t pick a fight with a lady at the grocery store…”
Also! My autobio comic is going full steam these days. I’m doing an hourly comics special there where I post two pages a day til it’s done. After that, I’ll post the whole thing here as well.
I have just finished my move!! A lot ended up going on, so this is the first thing I’ve drawn since we finished packing. I passed out all day today, and ended up dreaming that I met a god. He was just a lonely old guy who made lots of stuff because he was bored.
It’s Witchsona Week! It officially starts in the last full week of January, so I made it just in time.
I like to think that I would be some sort of plant witch, obsessed with collecting normal things that I consider beautiful. I love to amass beautiful objects to look at–rocks, acorns, feathers, stamps, etc–and display them around me in different cycles so every collection can be cleaned and rest.
In terms of announcements: this year’s hourly comic day will be late! Usually, I like to do it no matter how busy I am, but on the actual day of February 1st…I will be driving! For eight hours or more! To our new home!!! It’s very exciting. I might make a comic out of the events (depends on how I am able to keep up with noting things down) since it will possibly be the most exciting thing I do all year, but I estimate that it won’t get posted until after the new internet gets hooked up (Either the 3rd or 6th).
So, I started watching Devilman Crybaby and I can’t stop thinking about it. I’ll probably end up blitzing it before the end of the week.
From what I’ve seen so far, it’s really interesting (I’VE ONLY WATCHED TWO EPISODES OKAY SO I DON’T KNOW MUCH) and I love that animation style. It’s loose, it’s disorientating, but it also feels solid. Andrea and I were baffled by the breakneck pace of the story, though, and this is definitely not the kind of show that sensitive viewers should watch. Blood, guts, sex, crying, etc. Here’s the opening for your consideration:
Another year has gone by! I have updated the site a bit to make it more easily navigable–the art and comics are now in galleries in the top menu and I’ve picked the comics slider apart into separate banners again. I do have a new zine due to come out at the end of the month as well, so keep an eye out for that!
Thanks for sticking around! There will be some more changes to the site soon, so be on the lookout.
me: look at this mass of crows! thousands of them! an ill omen
ornithologist: actually those are ravens. you can tell by the size of their bodies and the sounds they make
me: oh, so, not an ill omen?
ornithologist: oh no you're super cursed either way Retweeted by
Today I got to see a very unusual bird for Texas... a snowy owl! There were a whole bunch of other birders who drove really far to see this wintery friend. The bird didn't do much but I still got some good photos! Retweeted by
Trans kids massively benefit from being allowed to transition. A new study in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry shows allowing trans kids to transition virtually eliminates higher rates of depression and low self-worth. thinkprogress.org/trans-kids-soc…Retweeted by
Hello everyone, saddly I have some bad news. I'm victime of plagiarism.
A page facebook.com/fortafygames totally copied my art to make a mobile game with it. I want you to be aware of this and my situation, no artists on the internet deserve such disrespect.
Some truly moving responses to this thread yesterday, I could not keep replying once I went off the computer, but they kept coming, there are so many similar experiences out there. It is not just women who are not believed, I know, but the volume of stories speak for themselves twitter.com/beatonna/statu…Retweeted by
