#distractiondraw & involvement as self-care

  #distractiondraw (Instagram link) is something my friend Stevie and i started doing because our social media feeds were too depressing to read immediately upon waking. We decided to draw something that made us happy and post it every morning before looking at anything else, and we’ve now started doing it when we need to “reset” […]

Hanzo had his 6th birthay party yesterday!

For the past 5.5 years, any time i have given Hanzo a balloon, he has happily destroyed it with his poky little claws and bitey little teeth. If given a choice between a cardboard box, a stuffed animal, and a balloon, i’d bet money he’d pick the last one first. So i got a bunch […]

Fat Jokes

This happened almost word for word. If anyone gets mad at me for making comics about fat jokes, this will be SO META. We’ll understand if you never want to talk to us again. But we’re going to make fun of you behind your back, and draw devil horns and a mustache on your picture […]

Duck Collection

My friend Carlie collects rubber ducks. We have rubber duck painting kits at the art store. Carlie and her sister recently adopted two kittens. You don’t have to be a writer to know how these different facts fit together, right? The nature of her birthday gift was inevitable:
