The 24-Hour Comic Challenge Starts NOW

This is a pre-loaded reminder that I’m participating in 24-Hour Comic Day today. Together with other members of the Cartoonist League of Absurd Washingtonians (the CLAW), for the next twenty-four hours I’ll be ensconced at Tacoma Games, each of us attempting in that time to create a 24-page comic. If you’re in the area, swing […]

24-Hour Comic Day—Oct. 3, 2015

Ever since I first heard about in the letters column of Cerebus, I’ve been fascinated with the 24-Hour Comic. It sounded like fun and challenging exercise, and one I wanted to give a whirl. That feeling only grew when I discovered that there was a semi-official 24-Hour Comic Day when cartoonists around the world all […]

COMICS: artTown Tacoma

The city of Tacoma is incredibly supportive of the arts . . . including cartooning! In the latest episode of their YouTube show artTown they talk to some of the cartoonists living and working in the general Tacoma area. And starting at about the 3:30 mark in the video, they focus on a group I’m […]

NorWesCon, Here I Come!

Okay, it’s not really much of a trip, seeing as the convention hotel is less than 10 miles from my apartment … but still, I’ll be spending a lot of time at NorWesCon 35 this weekend. If you’re in the greater Seattle area, you’re a science-fiction/fantasy fan, I expect to see you at the show! […]

It’s Time For ECCC

As hard as it is for me to believe, it’s time for Emerald City Comic Con again! I’m planning to be there on Friday and Saturday for certain … Sunday I’m leaving up in the air, for the moment. Mostly, I plan to just wander the exhibit hall and attend a few seminars … but […]

A No-Lose Lottery

A few years ago, Hyrum told me about this thing he’d read about called a “No-Lose Lottery.” Now, just by the name alone, I was suspicious, but he’d told me some crazy things before that turned out to be true, so I listened. It turned out he was talking about a financial product generally known […]

A New Toon

I neglected to mention it the other week, but I put a new comic up at the 10’x10′ Toon site. That’s a pretty rare occurrence these days, and it makes me feel sad to realize it. There was a good 10 months or so back a couple of years ago where I was succeeding in […]


On Saturday night, just for a change of pace, I went with a couple of friends to see a professional lacrosse game. Now, if you’re like me, your first reaction to a sentence like that is something like, “There are professional lacrosse teams?” As it turns out, yes. The National Lacrosse League (NLL) has been […]
