The Broken Windshield Wiper

with 6 comments

021-BrokenWiper

Us Abbamondi folk…we’re like everyday MacGyvers I tell you. I actually first suggested using the string on an extra air freshener in my car so I’m not totally perfect as a resourceful secret agent, but I promise I’m working on it.

Anyways, after the car problems were finished up, all of us went out to eat at Carino’s Italian Restaurant. We nom nomed, we caught up, and afterwards we all went our separate ways (well, not me–I stayed in my apartment for the evening). It was a very nice visit, all-in-all, and hopefully I’ll get down to South Jersey some time in September/October…

Give me all your stuff
Until I can’t get up
Watch the whole world freeze
Counting tin cans in our sleep
Submarines are diving deep
And don’t believe in me

The Dance of the Packing Peanuts

It was more magical than that trash bag scene in American Beauty, I kid thee not.

Some rules are made with all intentions to break
And she defends it with a warped rationale
And I’ve seen what happens to the wicked and proud
When they decide to try to take on the throne for the crown

Don’t mind me, I’m just being mopey.

This old world, well, it was mine to take
Faith can keep you warm, but I’ll teach you how to shake
And I’ll come to you like a little girl
It’s only gonna make you love me more

I LOVE THE RAIN

There’s a 94% chance that if you yourself don’t love the rain that I don’t love you at all.

Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world I’m turning inside out
I’m floating around in ecstasy
So don’t stop me now, don’t stop me
Cause I’m having a good time, having a good time

That One Weekend in July 2009

with 5 comments

I dunno… felt like drawing the latest weekend in terms of journal comics again because I do miss doing them from time to time despite having no future plans of returning to them:

016-TheWeekend

How did your weekend turn out?

Feeling independent
I made it through another day
Having a wonderful time
I haven’t felt the sickness
I think i may have scared it away
Looks like I’m gonna be fine

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

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
