Actually I think it was more like 4 piercings, if we’re going for accuracy. If you weren’t a female growing up in the 80’s, don’t bother trying to get this one.

Also, I present the most encouraging text-conversation I’ve ever had:

Me: What’s your opinion of a first person narrator who isn’t quite the main character? Is that too passive of storytelling?
Molly: Ever heard of the Great Gatsby?

Thank you Molly!!

Van Rossum kids and car-ride sketches.

Our vacation was so great! I thought about drawing comics while I had the extra time (and there were plenty of moments that would have made great comics – our “lovely” GPS Annie alone provided enough material for weeks of frustrated, manic laughter… and then there was our harrowing unpaved mountain top car ride, and the exploding golf ball, and the RV that was engulfed in flames, and… ) but then I decided to just relax and enjoy the week and REALLY take a vacation.  But I realize I forgot to post this one before I left like I said I would… this is a comic I made for Meagan for her birthday:

Also, here are a couple sketches I did during our 12 hour drive.

punk

This guy is a character from my graphic novel, which I have an announcement about but which I’ll hold off on for now. Anyway, that’s probably not the style I’ll be drawing my story in, but I wanted to do it that way.

bunnies

We saw a bunch of wildlife on our vacation (black bear with her cubs, elk, cutie little baby raccoon, stray cats, heron, vultures, etc) but I don’t remember seeing any crying bunnies. So of course I had to draw some!

Dailies will be back tomorrow!

Larry and Balky would be proud.

So yeah, I’ll be on vacation in the Smokey Mountains for the next week, so there will be no new comics. Except ONE which I plan to have posted tomorrow. Happy Easter in advance, I’ll be back on the 20th!

Each face represents a “blah.” Profound, yeah? OR I just couldn’t write anything today.

Actually, I drew a comic for my sister for her birthday, but I want her to see it before I put it up here, so you’ll just have to wait! Happy birthday, Meagan!

Don't pay attention to…

…her magical hat! It was the daily comic version of a typo that spiralled out of control. That said,
