Raul's housewarming party.






















Waking up with a bunch of bizarre writing running the entire length of your arm is usually a sign of a night well spent.

Jesus humpers.























Ironically, the people who held up the signs were all baristas at Java Lords.

Peter is the man.























Peter, on paintballing with the rest of our coworkers:

"I'll go if I have to, but I'll bring a real gun."
"..."
"My paint will be red."

Blast from the not-so-distant past.











































Some comics I did during my last trip to Vermont, way back in January, featuring the lovely, incomparable, and totally rad Dave, Kate, and Sean! (Not pictured: the equally lovely, incomparable, and totally rad Colin and Aaron. I miss you guys!)

Fabulous Mameshiba Adventures: Part 2 of 2

When last we left Brooke, she was fruitlessly trying to get her then-boyfriend to open a package of chocolate-covered coffee beans and find the mameshiba inside. Mameshiba, you'll remember, are weird Japanese bean-dogs that pop out of food and share disturbing trivia. I wish I could say this video explains everything, but it actually explains nothing and will probably leave you even more confused than you already were:



Note: There is an English-subtitled version, but it's a lot funnier when you have no clue what they're singing.

And now, I present Fabulous Mameshiba Adventures Part 2!


















Erm, so yeah, epic battle in front of Caribou Coffee = strange looks. Yeah.

Anyway, I'm sorry this went up so late. I kinda fell out of love with this comic after awhile, but I'd already put up the first part, so I had to follow through. Later tonight, I'm going to post up a couple of older comics I drew earlier this year just to make up for the posting delay. And on the plus side, I have two more comics all queued up for this Tuesday and Thursday, and another one that's almost ready to be inked. Yayay productivity!

One more thing: Last night, I went to a fun-ass party at Raul's, and a bunch of people told me they'd read my work and like it. I can't describe how great it feels to know that people are reading these things, let alone liking them. So yay, thanks for reading!

Fabulous Mameshiba Adventures: Part 1 of 2

Note: Before you read this comic, you really should watch this video. Otherwise, it's not gonna make much sense. Also, this video is totally hilarious and bizarre-bordering-on-postmodern, and will make you consider moving to Japan if only to try to figure out what the fuck:



Okay, now that you're thoroughly puzzled, here's the comic:


















Thus ends Part 1 of Fabulous Mameshiba Adventures! Will Mikey discover the hidden Mameshiba? Will Brooke's sneaky plan come to fruition? Didn't they break up or something? (Yes.) TUNE IN THURSDAY TO FIND OUT!!

They opened up my eyes.



















Holy crap, color! This took for-friggin'-ever to put together, but I think it's worth it. Opinions?

I'm pushing the longer comic about the A.T. back to Tuesday. After getting a verbal beatdown from my idol, I decided to move my drawing style in a new direction. I tried some new things last night, and I'm really pleased with how well they turned out!

My bizarre life.























So, I'm trying some new things with my drawing and lettering style! It's going to be a little shaky at first, but I keep reminding myself that it was also a big leap when I stopped drawing stick figures and started including details like noses and eyebrows. I'm working on a longer comic about finishing the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail this weekend (btdubs, I finished the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail this weekend OMGZ), and already I'm getting a much better hang of this new style. No one tell Julia Wertz I'm cribbing from her.

I'm also experimenting a bit more with shading in Photoshop. I'm not wild about how the trees came out, but I think the different shades of gray add some cool detail to my people. Oh, and next Tuesday, I'm doing a comic in full color. I know, exciting, right?

I'm a creep magnet.



















I experimented a bit with shading in Photoshop this time around! What do you think?
