Putting up zines at Grimalkin haus to cover up the giant cracks in our walls. Sooo beuuutiful!
After much procrastination I finally decided to put the final touches on Boredom Pays 7 last night. It’s the last issue I’m going to do for the foreseeable future so it feels somewhat substantial to finally say “done” to a series I’ve been working on for the past four years.
It feels somewhat right.
I have a few illustrations in the new Broken Pencil (the one with Kickass Annie on the cover!). Stoked!
Sadness for Numbness
This is the last comic for the seventh issue of Boredom Pays (debuting at TCAF!). It’s a little out of context here, as it has been designed as a double page spread and fits in between various short comics that (hopefully, intentionally) string together a larger narrative when read in their intended sequence.
This is also the last autobio strip I’m going to be doing for a while. I know I’ve said that before, but I really feel like I’ve gotten much of what I needed to out of my system with this last issue of Boredom Pays. I’m really proud of it, I think it at least sort of touches on what I was going for.
It’s time to move onto something different <3

How to sleep through the winter (hibernate) by Alice and Martin Provensen
Today I found this little gem of a children’s book at a thrift store and upon a quick look through it’s clear that this is one of the best dollars I’ve ever spent. Entirely drawn with the cartoon modern sensibilities that I absolutely adore this book is chock full of beautiful illustrations accompanied by text as well as a few comics scattered throughout. By all indications it looks to be the first edition, too, which is surprising given it’s general good condition that it was published in 1952.

Mister Hobbes hard at work on his new comic, ‘nappin’, debuting at TCAF 2014
Hey! So, I’m in this book that Hic and Hoc is putting out - Unknown Origins & Untimely Ends: A collection of unsolved mysteries that’s being launched at TCAF! I’ve got a weird spooky story about gelatinous rain goo in here that’s quite unlike anything else I’ve ever really done and there’s some other seriously talented folks in here so make sure to check it out if you have the chance!
Seriously getting so stoked for TCAF <3
Sewing a patch of an alligator riding a bicycle to my sweater because I’m just that punk.
Also, I didn’t grab the artists name but he’s based out of Guelph and does fantastic drawings. Anybody recognize this/could tell me who did this so I can both properly credit and find more?
