Happy Pirate Happy Hourrrr

DORK ADDENDA: I’m told that at some shows, Paul and Storm actually use this gag pretty much as written here, so all credit to that awfully clever duo, as well as to Bob. K (@hamletseries) for divining it on his own. MEMO TO SELF – see if Paul and Storm are willing to forgo potentially crippling royalty payments if I promise never to draw them naked again.

Support a HIGHER PORPOISE!

Bike the Barns Duck (Charity)

Today I finished inking the limited edition  Insane Charity Bike Ride 2016 Munchkin Charity postcard (it lets you start a game of Munchkin at Level 3). Name? HIGHER PORPOISE! (I’d like to think Andrew Hackard has taught me well, when it comes to Munchkin Puns. Hopefully, this makes him proud. And “proud” is not a […]

Gen Come, Gen Gone, Gen Con

Particularly impressive: they got my Line Quality right.

Gen Con: the best four days of not seeing even an eighth of the friends you’d love to have seen… Yup, Gen Con 2016 is in the books, and it was a wild, crazy, insane time, with huge crowds, giant lines, and a total lack of sleep. And that’s just fighting for a Delta flight home! Ba-dum-kshhhh! […]

INSANE CHARITY BIKE RIDE 2016 IS HERE!

I’m packing for Gen Con, and guess what’s going with me? ALL THE 2015 BIKE THE BARNS SWAG, to be handed off to David Michael, Fulfillment Guru of the Gods (and of me). It took a lot longer getting the swag out for last year’s ride than I’d hoped. Also, it’s pushed back fundraising for […]

Cthulhu in the House! Ia! Ia! Art Notes! Fhtagn!

Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 2.53.15 PM

Every now and then, I find a little time to do something that’s not Munchkin. When I do, it’s usually Dork Tower*. But very so often, I get to play in another sandbox entirely. Last year, I was flown to Brazil for Comic Con, and got to hang out with some of the folks behind Cool […]

Reasons to be Cheerful, Part Three

I believe this says it all.

Sorry nothing went up on the site last week. The family (the Lovely and Talented Judith, Daughter, Age 7, and I) flew back from Spain Wednesday, after having visited my folks in Malaga. I assumed I’d be able to get a couple of comic strips up once we got home, but I assumed incorrectly. I […]

Defender of the Realm (or: “Thank God I Wan’t Invited to an Auto Show”)

Defender

I was a guest at Southern Fried Gameroom Expo this last weekend – a wonderful pinball and arcade gaming convention in Atlanta, Georgia. I’ve never seen anything like it: hall after hall of classic and contemporary games. They launched a tabletop gaming track, this year. Hence, my invite. Best of all, they also flew in the Lovely and Talented […]
