There's nothing to see here.

Thanks to the glorious web design vision of Cody Kratzer, I now have a shiny new website for my comics that I am overly pleased with. Also, my head is swimming a bit, as I just spend the past several hours changing code and basically transposing this blog onto it. So please, go check it out! I even set up a little RSS feed for it, because I know some of you like that sort of thing. I will not be updating this blog any longer. You know where to find me.

This is a composite. A conversation that was relayed to me, that I then tweeted, that was then responded to.

Hourly Comic, 11/9/10

There is this meme among comics that is the hourly comic. It is a spawn of the 24-hour comic day (a challenge invented by Scott McCloud for Steve Bissette)

So the idea is, every hour you make a comic about something that happened that hour. Every hour you're awake anyhow. I decided it might be a fun challenge.


When I have time for making comics, nothing interesting is happening & vice versa.

It's a lot of pressure to choose what deserves to be included. Maybe something more interesting will happen in the last 10 minutes. I never inked until after.

Are there ethical responsibilities within comics? For some reason, I felt like I had to use realism in place of metaphor / symbolism.

I also became a little too cognizant of how I was representing my life. I could make myself seem very social or very anti-social just depending on the parts of my hour I chose to represent. I left out the part where I went to Kinko's and was a jerk about the weight of the paper and the light splotches in my field of black. I left out the part where I went to the record store to drop off a couple comics and ended up buying three dollar records. In other media I don't think that it is necessary to show the whole truth, but for some reason, it became a concern here.


The grass. It's greener.

This happened over the summer. Or maybe in September? It's still summer for me until I start working again, which is usually mid September.

Generation gap.

In case there is any confusion, my comics are autobio. That is, if any of my comics purport to be fiction, they are probably just thinly veiled autobio as well. And I'm a substitute. And this happened. Last week. On Friday.

NEWW Diary

I went to New England Webcomics Weekend this Saturday, which means I finally get to participate in the post-con-diary-comics meme. Also, I get to try my hand at image mapping. Check it out! Click a panel to be brought to a related website. Sometimes. I'm figuring it out.

Duck on the Charles

Chicken Dance Comic, I don't want to be a duck
I find some moments too funny to NOT immortalize in comic form.

Centralia PA is on fire and there was some foreshadowing, as joked about by thejealousone and ericseverynewday and made into comic by chateauofadoubt

I hereby reserve the right to take anything funny you say to me or around me and make it into a comic. Additionally, I reserve the right NOT to.

A Tip

There is no Z in Exercize

I like mnemonic devices and I always try to spell it 'exercize' so I this is how I have to think about it.

I googled it, and it doesn't seem like anyone else has thought of this, sooooo you can get this one as a T shirt if you're so inclined. I set up a little spreadshirt shop and everything.

What Is Art?

I made this a couple of years ago.... it's a sort of mind map about my concept of the meaning of art.
