I like comics, sci-fi, art, and sometimes spectacularly bad tv.

I've got a webcomic called Manifold Destiny about an aspiring supervillain looking for a superhero on a super-dating site.

Here is my self indulgent photo blog about my wiener dogs: Two Stupid Sausages

The story of the time I used dog commands on a super high dude (A story for Nicole)

I’m a bit drunk, so I’m sorry if this is… a bit all over the place. 

So, it was super super fucking hot (hotter than Portland usually gets for more than a week at a time) and Andrew and I were tired of it in our non-air conditioned 100 year old building. So we decided to go to a movie. Because we are cheap fat lushes, we decided to go to one of the multitude of second run pizza and beer theaters in Portland to watch Only Lovers Left Alive to watch attractive (nordic?) vampires. Unfortunately everyone else in Portland had the same idea. 

So we were standing in line, awaiting… whichever movie would have us. As we’re standing there, this dude slunks out of the theater. For some reason, both Andrew and I have the issue where we look like A Very Good Person To Ask A Favor Of. So of course this guy beelines for us. 

Super high guy: Hey… I got caught sneaking into the movies… I need someone to swap identities with me. 

Me: No. 

SHG: I’ll give it right back!

Me: I… I don’t think that’s how it works. 

SHG: Maybe not in twenty thirteen, but this is like… this is twenty.. FOURTEEN!

Me (using the same command I use on our small dogs, while pointing down the road): Out. 

Him: But…

Me: OUT.

Him: Okay… I love you. 

Me: I love you too. 

Then he just… left? I was kind of impressed that my dog commands worked on a real live person, and that he wasn’t upset, just sort of dejected that he got kicked out of a movie and then told he couldn’t swap identities with anyone. 

Oh right and then we couldn’t see Only Lovers Left Alive because it was full. So we watched Grand Budapest Hotel and I cried a bunch and this was the whole reason I was telling this story.

this is your life: you’re half drunk on a warm night on the last day of your best job (and you can’t wait for the next one to start). your favorite bartender asked you where you’d been and said “well, you look happy,” and you are happy. you are, maybe for the first time, exactly right in your skin, alone on your porch and looking for fireflies and pretending to read but mostly just watching the sky.

I decided to do an update of one of the first characters that I drew when I decided to start drawing again (see here). She looked pretty glum in my original. Since then, she’s gotten a cute new top, and a seal puppy. Life is pretty good. 
(She’s also pretty much based on PNW octopus. So I can imagine her chilling when I go to the beach).  
(I did also put this on redbubble.)

I realized I’d never drawn Rory’s shoes. She gets… also boots. I like boots. They’re fun to draw.

I was downtown tonight and I passed this group of big kinda scary looking guys and all I heard was “are you fucking kidding me? harry potter wouldn’t last 10 minutes in the hunger games.”

The Aftershocks
medium.com

I was asked to create a .gif of a house interior during an earthquake. The article chronicles the controversial aftermath of the devastating quake that happened in L’Aquila, Italy in 2009. I wanted to capture the movement of the “tremors” before the full-on earthquake, although this tremor is infinite, never resolving.
This image and the all the animation was made in Photoshop. thanks AD Erich Nagler!

I’m pretty sure that they actually did resolve the noseless-Wolverine thing and twelve year old Storm plotlines, but I think they just quietly dropped the team’s “undetectable to technology” thing they had post-Roma resurrection. I don’t think anyone had a problem with them dropping that particular plot point. Sometimes things just don’t stick.
