Things I’ve Named

with 15 comments


So, help me out here and tell me all about the inanimate objects you’ve named so I don’t feel like a complete sociopath. Bonus points for truly geeky names. Not that we’re keeping score or anything, no.

I’ve become just like a terrible mess
Searching the lines in my face for
Something more beautiful than is there
But the crowds keep me coming back

Watching the Clowns

with 11 comments


Welcome to the life of a guy that draws journal comics! These things just happen, y’know?

Turns out the clowns actually live in my apartment building, and they don’t change back into people clothes after a gig so I see them from time to time in full getup getting their mail and such. Fun, fun times. Not really. I hate clowns.

I’m doomed to love you
I’ve been rolling through stormy weather
I’m thinking of you
And all the places we could roam together

Coloring comics is so…2005!

Please sign up here if you’d like to be a future seat-filler some day.

Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don’t you know you might find
A better place to play

Lunch Meat Frowns

with 9 comments


Still on hiatus here, still enjoying my time off from comics on the brain 24/7, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to post a “hey, still alive!” sort of thing. So, um…still alive! I’ve been doing some doodling and other artsy stuff lately, with most of it posted over at my deviantART account for those interested.

Anyways, enjoy the lunch meat comic. No joke, my grocery shopping lately for two weeks’ worth has totaled something like $12.00. Impressed?

I’ve been jumping from the tops of buildings
For the thrill of the fall, ignoring sound advice
And any thought of consequence
My bones have shattered
My pride is shattered
And in the midst of this self-inflicted pain
I can see my beautiful rescue

That’s All, Folks

…for now.

I’m going to keep this short. Real short, actually. I’ll be taking a break from MyLifeComics, and I’m not talking about merely a few days off. Fortunately (take notice that I didn’t say unfortunately there), I’m no longer in a place in my life where I can devote the time and passion it takes to do a daily webcomic. And so we shall part, for now, as I’m sure to return at some point down the road. These things are inevitable.

Thank you, dear readers, for following along with me over the past two years. Your comments and support have meant the world to me, especially those from Tara, Bitsy, D, TK42ONE, Kelly, Trina, and many others.

If you’re interested in keeping tabs on me, there’s always deviantART and LiveJournal and Twitter and a slew of other places you can stalk me at. Do your worst.

For those reaching for the box of tissues, just remember this: we only part to meet again.

Excuse the bitching, I shouldn’t complain
I should have no feeling, cause feeling is pain
As everything I need is denied to me
And everything I want is taken away from me
But who do I got to blame?
Nobody but me
