Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part I

ConFusion This Weekend

I’ll be attending ConFusion Through The Looking Glass in Detroit this weekend. I’m not on any panels (by choice) and I’m neither exhibiting (by choice) nor selling merchandise (you see the pattern here). I’m just hanging out.

If you’re there and would like something signed, and you happen to see me, it’s okay to ask. If I’m in the middle of something (like, say, a dinner with friends) then use good judgment.

I may bring work with me, so it’s possible you’ll see me sitting somewhere drawing comics. It’s just fine for you to talk to me while I’m drawing. Literally half my brain will be looking for something to do while the other half makes pictures, and since it’s the half with the language center, conversation fits the bill nicely.


Happy 2018!

Happy 2018, everyone (at least everyone celebrating these things in conjunction with Gregorian calendars.)

I spent most of the holiday break being sick, which is no fun, and breaking a tooth, which was such a non-event I don’t remember when it actually happened, but I’m on the mend now, and am terrifically busy trying to catch up on all the work that I was meant to do last week.

Fresh health and a big stack of things to do? Auspicious beginnings! 2018 will certainly have some suck in it, but it will begin (at least for me) with a proper grind.


Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was every bit as much fun as I hoped it would be. In part this is because I saw it with my sixteen-year-old daughter, but mostly it’s because the folks on-screen were simply delightful. Also, yay  video game physics!

It clears my Threshold of Awesome, and takes slot #6. Yes this means I did in fact have more fun at the second Jumanji  than I had at the ninth Star Wars.
