We all just want to be understood, right?

And some things are better stressed
When unexpressed
Cause silence can be overwhelming

How Tara and I First Met Each Other

with 12 comments

StrangersToEachOther

This is the comic I submitted to a magazine recently with an open call on the theme of “how we met.” Alas, I did not make the final cut. So enjoy it here, free of charge. Or, if you’re a Tara/Paul hater: va la scopata voi stessi.

In other news, I’m working on a new webcomic project called Supertown. Scripting is going well, and after an upcoming vacation (thank the stars!) I’ll get down to the nitty-gritty and actually draw the thing. If superheroes and adorable moments are your thing, you might wanna stick around for this one.

And I’m going to have a story published in the next issue of Farrago’s Wainscot, which goes live on July 1. It involves birds and sex and sorta-maybe-vampires. People related to me should probably not read it unless they want to be disturbed a wee bit.

So yeah, that’s about it. Also, if you haven’t congratulated Kelly on her good news, get to it. She’s going to beat me at getting famous, but well, that’s okay. I’ll catch up soon enough.

In pastures blue and green
I’ll follow you and you’ll follow me
My fabrics mystery
I’ll wave your loyalty in the freezing breeze
So desperately
I think I see, see my life

My Life at the Crossroads

with 11 comments

013-Crossroads

Internally, I go through this every single day, and it’s getting pretty tiring. So how about y’all just tell me what to do with my life? I’ll even consider being a professional cabana boy or what-have-you. Just help me find my path. I thank you in advance.

I can hear you calling out
Across the great divide
Right or wrong, there’s a feeling in my heart
I try to follow
But lately I just hide

Are You Dead?

Some days I just wonder…

Also, curses, I forgot to draw in Osama bin Laden. I’d like to know about his status, too. Don’t you?

Baby, baby don’t treat me this way
I’m gonna make it again someday
There’s just one thing I’d like you to know
I got no more to lose if you go

Bonus Comics from August 2008, Part Four

with 6 comments

All righty, here’s the last two bonus MyLifeComics from August 2008 that never made it online until now. Hope all two of you reading this have enjoyed them, and I’m sure I’ll have some new stuff up…eventually.

I absolutely love game shows, but not game shows like this:

If you’re a Home Movies fan (and no, I’m not talking about those mini videos you and your significant other make late at night in your bedroom), I love you and we need to get together for a marathon real soon because the truth of the matter is that McGuirk is our nation’s greatest overachiever and I want to be 94% like him when I hit my mid-forties:

Today’s been a career day
Futures made and fortunes lost
As I’m standing in the lobby
I’m waiting for the elevator to take
Me away

Bonus Comics from August 2008, Part Two

with one comment

As promised, here’s another two bonus comics that never made it online back in August 2008. In the first one, please try not to focus on how badly I drew the waitress, but rather how annoyingly she asked us in a sing-song voice if we liked our turkey burgers (we did):

And then there was an escapade involving my father’s cell phone and the post office:

And still she finds that every time she runs
She leaves behind another piece of her
On every city street

Bonus Comics from August 2008, Part One

with 2 comments

Well, still currently sick and I tried to draw last night, but got quickly frustrated and stopped. So don’t expect anything new here for a little bit. BUT…I do have old MyLifeComics to show y’all! All week-long, too. You can start bouncing in your seat now.

Back in the day I decided I’d try and make a print zine out of my daily comics, an idea which flopped because I struggled with the zine-making process and probably need help and someone to guide me along the way if I’m ever to do this again. An incentive, however, to get people interested in these were the notion of bonus comics. Y’klnow, extra stuff. I kept them hidden from the online world for too long though…

So here’s the first two from August 2008, never before seen:

2008-08-01BTara loves that one. She enjoys potty humor, I guess. 😛

Here’s another, with slippage, and considering our one-year anniversary was yesterday (true fact: nine out of ten people don’t care) is pretty timely:

2008-08-08B1

I’ve got a Dungeon Master’s Guide
I’ve got a 12-sided die
I’ve got Kitty Pryde
And Nightcrawler too
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do
