A Quick One While He's Away

I owe a huge TCAF post (yeah yeah i know, a month late). In the meantime (and because i'm seriously rushing my ass out the door for First Friday), here is an amusing True-Life tale:

I'm lucky *i'm* cute...

How Mummies Happen

I work at the incredibly fabulous Penn Museum, and my boss is constantly trying to find ways for me to draw comics for visitor outreach. We have a replica mummy on loan that we're taking around campus/the city, and this is the handout I made.

Your envy at my life is appreciated.

(PS: A few staffers and I attended a special lecture about mummies in prep for going out into public w/the mummy. I can now say I've heard the phrase "anal spigot" used in a purely academic context)

    dr. horrible songs i have stuck in my head.

oh septa.


I'm going to do my damndest to participate in Hourly Comics Day tomorrow--it's going be a hectic day at work, but then hopefully that means more things to comic about, amirite?

"Let's all meet up in the year 2000. Won't it be strange when we're all fully grown?"

So Drawvember was derailed due to dramatic life events, and Drawcember was kind of derailed by not having the internet for the past week. BUT, here is a three-page comic.

Also i am finally gainfully employed (UPenn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology WHAT!), and thus will have money for things like art supplies, comic copies, and general food and well-being. I still need some kind of self-imposed goal, but i'm beginning to realize that I am not a creature of schedule. So i promise updates will freaking happen, just bear with me. <3

ooh la la laaaaa.

C'est Magnifique

This was kind of a doodle that took on a life of its own. Can't say it's not at least partly inspired by a certain favorite redhead of mine...(hint hint: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QN4NyD6l8A)

Also, don't miss out on the birdies i posted previously. their feelings will be hurt. little hurt birdy feelings. you monster.

    Stairway To Heaven (no, really.)

chirp indeed.


Drawvember is a week behind, due to unforseen circumstances. i'm going to try to post two per day this continuing week to make up for it.

you know, except for today.

the movement you need is on your shoulder.


This is a kind-of cop-out--i merely finished a drawing i had started months before. For once, i'm not being lazy; i'm making up for having a lot on my mind. a heads-up that tomorrow's Drawvember may come a day late, but we will have to see.

Times like this make me wish i were more profound.

A high five for anyone who knows the song the title comes from....

Java Junkie

I am one of those "give me the coffee and no one gets hurt" kind of people. I have no problem acknowledging my drug addiction, no problem spending far too much money to keep myself highly caffinated at all times, and no problem with the fact that if i don't ingest some form of coffee everyday my body painfully reminds me with headaches and general brain-mushiness. My relationship with that wonderful dark brown liquid has been more stable than almost any i've ever had.

i guess throw me into the 12-step if i'm ever trying to freebase espresso beans in an alleyway.
