Offering a Sign of Peace

with 6 comments

024-PeaceSign

In case it’s not clear on what is happening in that third and final panel, let me use words to explain what my drawing skills cannot: Tara and I were giving each other a sign of peace, first with a peck on the lips and then moving on to kiss each other’s cheek…except we both turned into each other’s face and ended up smushing our faces together. We then spent the next five minutes trying not to giggle over this because, y’know, we were in church.

And it seems that’s not the place where you belong
And it seems that’s not the place where you belong
When there’s no sun and there’s no moon
And there’s no stars, child, have you gone crazy

Tara’s Breath of Life

with 5 comments

One more for the night:

guestcom

This happened on our way back from Philcon in November 2008, but I’m only getting around to posting it now because…well, I can be forgetful at times. Anyways, Tara is probably going to be the next Mother Theresa. She’s that kind, especially to frozen bees. And she’s allllllllllllllll mine.

So yeah, enjoy. I’ll have to look around and see what else I can post to keep this place happening while I get Supertown going…

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

The Many Faces Tara and I Make Playing LEGO Batman

with 4 comments

014-LEGOBatman

Despite its many flaws, I love the LEGO videogames. My parents got me LEGO Batman for my birthday (gee, that sentence reads like something a seven-year-old might type; oh well), and a gaming session with it pretty much turns out like the above. It’s all fun and games until things get frustrating as all gets. I don’t even know how kids play this game and get anywhere. Co-op is enjoyable…if you don’t mind dying a lot or getting snappy with your partner in crime. Because you will snap. Oh, you will.

Yet, even with the bad camera angles, glitches, horribly done automobile levels, and forestalling puzzles, one can’t stop playing. There’s too many studs to collect and not enough time. I want to buy–and collect–everything there is, and that’s the part that hooks me every single time. As of this post, I’ve completed somewhere about 45% of the game. What am I doing wasting my time here then? The Batsignal shines above!

My messenger in disguise
Makes up for such short goodbyes
You can’t come home again
Each time it’s different

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

Are You Dead?

011-AreYouDead

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 Three

with 2 comments

I see these posts are very popular with the WordPress crowd. /sarcasm

Two more bonus comics, one capturing the actual moment when “I love you”s were both finally exchanged after the initial slippage (aren’t you jealous you yourself don’t have such documentation of your SO’s adoration and affection for you to refer to through all of time?):

2008-08-17B

And then there’s this one about ordering Chinese food:

2008-08-19B

Speaking of that, tonight is the season 5 finale of LOST and I’m thinking I need to throw myself a lonesome party and get some general tso chicken. Yes? Yes.

Follow me down through the streets of the states
Make up a reason not to come for old time sake
Nothing in this town could ever change
Except maybe new lines on your face

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

Name Our Boxy Baby

with 18 comments

xboxcomic

Yup, that’s right. Tara popped one out, and it’s a next-gen videogame system! Dun dun dunnnnn. I guess the ultrasound lied.

Okay, truth is, I saved up me moneys from published short stories and freelance art gigs and made the big purchase a few days ago. It’s heavenly and amazing and superawesometimetown (not a word). But there’s a problem. As evidence shows, I can’t help but name inanimate objects (Tara says, “Don’t call our baby an inanimate object!”), but I’m struggling to come up with one for the ol’ Xbox 360. I need your help. Some criteria to consider:

  1. It’s a boy.
  2. It’s name cannot be Sam, Samuel, Samwise, Sammy, Sammich, Samamamamamama, or anything else Sam-like.
  3. It does not have to be an actual name. Considering my laptop’s name is Macaroni.

If I lurve your name (lurve is a greater state of love, for those not in the know), you might just get a free drawing out of this. So suggest away, and may your babies be plentiful!

Go go go
Go have a baby
Go have a baby
Baby, baby
