We’re Back!

Last week’s panic to fix two laptops ended well. We had to get new laptops, but we had no data loss between both the failing hard drives (my logic board went out also). I’m still setting up my new MacBook Pro, but that’s a trivial problem compared to losing years of...

No Strips For Now. My Computer Is Dying!

Ugh – so I’m back in Omaha for the holidays, and one of the things I always do is run some maintenance on my grandfather’s computer. He has an older MacBook, and he had been complaining that while working on his World War II memoires that his computer had been acting...

The Greatest Cocktail?

Troy Patterson, writing for Slate, has written a lengthy article about the Old Fashioned, its history and its many, many variations. The Old Fashioned is my favorite cocktail, and I’ve seen several variations, but I have come to make them at home in the manner of the...

Thanks for the break, everyone!

Thanks to everyone for being patient this week as I caught my breath. I was surprisingly tired the last few days after the marathon of work that was my first semester at the Center for Cartoon Studies. So, I thought I would celebrate for the lax week with a...

No Strip Today, But… SCIense!

Hey gang! I just finished my last project for the semester at CCS, and I just don’t have the energy to do a strip for Monday. I was in a group anthology: 80 pages, translucent cover flap, 4 color screenprinted cover, perfect bound by hand, held together with a belly...

Whoops!

Sorry about the interruption of strips this week! I was supposed to travel on Wednesday for the holiday, but after hearing about a large snowstorm headed up to Vermont, I decided to hit the road late Tuesday night and missed getting the strip done. Then of course...

Couple Days Off

Hey friends, I’m going to take a couple days off from production. School has been particularly hard, and I have someone special visiting me and taking care of me. There will be comics done this week, for sure, but I’m taking it easy when I can. School is incredibly...

End of the Drink of the Week (For Now)

Hello, friends! After much consideration, I’ve decided to put an end to the Drink of the Week feature for awhile. The decision is two-fold. Firstly, it takes a surprising amount of research for each drink. I take a good deal of time to learn the history and craft of...

The Center for Cartoon Studies

Sorry for interrupting the strip this week, but this is such a major event in my life that I wanted to tell all of you about it. I discovered The Center for Cartoon Studies maybe a few months after it had started (in 2004, I believe), and I was jealous. I would...

400 Strips!

Today’s strip is the 400th update (not counting the Drinks of the Week). Four hundred strips! Where has the time gone? I’m thrilled that so many of you are still reading, and that you are sharing the comic with friends. We’re getting new readers all the time, and I’m...
