Site for sore eyes.

Hey y’all (one of my new friends from Oklahoma taught me that it’s okay for a Northern girl to say such a word). If you haven’t noticed, my old wordpress.com website got a big old kick in the rear and now I’m self hosting, thanks to much assistance from my friend Arek. Already this means a more customized web design, and hopefully it will mean I can do a lot of the stuff that wordpress wouldn’t allow before. If I can actually figure out how to manage my own website 🙂

You’ll notice some obvious cosmetic changes, such as a new header, hand-drawn links, and vast expanses of white on all sides. You’ll also notice that this blog is a seperate page from the comics, which will really help to clean things up, I think. It’s a work in progress, as we still need to put the portfolio and links pages together, but we’ll get there. I’ll also be posting sketches and samples of other work I’m doing, so check this blog for that as well. And actually, I’ll probably use this blog just to get back in the habit of writing, whether it’s about my Portland adventures or anything else. So read it!

And for all of your webdesign needs, make sure to call Arek Miaskowski, and if you like this site, it was very much a team effort and I couldn’t have done it without him. Thanks Arek, and thanks readers, for sticking with me!

Wi-five.

Thanks a hundred million, Arek!

Moderately link-crazy.

Some updates! I’ve booked my flight to Portland, I’ll leave the end of August. In the meantime I’m just trying to get things finalized here. I begin work on my new website today, so hopefully I’ll get that up and running in the next week or so! I’m also going to test out my new scanner today, so I might be able to post a comic – no promises though. Rachel and I saw (500) Days of Summer last night and it was terrific. The best movie I’ve seen since Juno, and probably even better. Also, please check out this article where our family band (Family Band… third band listed on my music page) gets name dropped in a Rolling Stone article! It’s Rolling Stone, Brasil, though, so you’ll need to read Portuguese. Featuring Todd Fadel and my buddies Agents of Future at The Bridge in, can you guess? Portland! Read it here. Does Laura look rad playing the accordion or what?

Finally, I did say I’d post some other artwork here while the comic is on temporary hiatus. So here goes, some old sketchbook scans:
