“My son is very intense and he took my box, when are you going to make comics about this?” “Mom, I’m a good boy, why won’t my girlfriend love me? MOM?” …yeah, there’s a comic coming this week, I’ve been working on it all week. I HAVE BACKUPS. It’s just not done and that’s myContinue reading “Where is the next comic?”

So, Where Were We?
Yeah, so…it’s been a while, huh? I’m going to try to catch up but let’s be honest, you don’t even remember where we left off. Last week was 17 years since I started this comic, and last month was The Fluffy One’s 18th birthday, The Puppy’s 15-year Gotcha Day, Babycat’s 2nd anniversary of living withContinue reading “So, Where Were We?”
Top Men Are Working On It.
Where were we? Last January one computer went poof as I was working on a comic you all haven’t seen yet, that one is safe on a drive…that wants a password to access? I’ll get to that. The old PC I used to put together my comics followed in July. That drive was fine, butContinue reading “Top Men Are Working On It.”
Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
Hey hey, it’s the first post in two months! That plan to post from my phone didn’t work at all, but I finally have Krita re-installed on my computer, and I am still alive, so maybe it won’t be three months until the next post?
Working Very Hard To Get Back To You
I am taking the very long scenic route around getting some drawings done. But we have top men working on it right now.
How’s everyone doing today? Good? I hope so. I can’t wait to tell you what I’m doing today but most likely I’m exhausted right now so you get the first bit of artwork I made this year. (I was spaying and neutering Team Tuxedo, good lord I was nowhere near Washington DC but yay forContinue reading “Blue Skies….”
Wow, you think I would’ve had something cool drawn for today, but believe it or not, I’m still going on side quests to get Krita back on a computer. And back up my photos. And clear space on a hardrive. Also my Nan’s PC got corrupted so I reinstalled her OS and while I wasContinue reading “Happy 2021!”
“Uncle, how do I get my girlfriend to join me?” “Uncle?” “Baby, you need to stop jumping out at her.” “Aww, mom, you don’t know about girls.”
I’d call it a May-December relationship….
But he was born in August. 😻
Well, this is a pickle.
I had a lot of comics in the works, and having not learned my lesson in February when one computer went kaput and took a comic with it, I continued to not use paper and just tonight noticed I lost about 700 files of comics in progress, reference photos, fan art requests, and who knowsContinue reading “Well, this is a pickle.”
Surprise, surprise, surprise!
You know I couldn’t leave them be. To be fair, she brought them into the basement, I just followed her in with a litter pan, bowl of water, plates of food, a radio, some boxes, lots of crunchies…. I really didn’t mean to bail on the comic, but drawing on a phone is weird whenContinue reading “Surprise, surprise, surprise!”
Trying it out.
“It is peaceful in here.”
What Is Even Going On?
“Uncle, what’s it all about?” “Eh, it is the only place I can do the thinking.”
A flashback to 2018 in honor of the king. This year is so cruel it now took Chadwick Boseman and I can’t deal with that. He’s younger than me, for one thing. My heart goes out to his family and all the kids who saw T’Challa and believed they could do anything. That part ofContinue reading “Wakanda Forever”
