CoverAnimalsColor

  QUICK! ONE THING FIRST! Lots of folks have asked for prints, mugs and tote-bags of yesterday’s “Writing: Bad Days and Good” comic. So now they’re available from the Dork Tower Society6 store! For the insecure artist in YOUR life! (HINT: this may mean “for YOU!”) OK. Onto the real news. It’s time for… Some […]

LET’S BUILD WORLDS! Pat Rothfuss’s Worldbuilders charity push for 2014 is in its final days, so I wanted to call attention to a few things you,  my dear readers (BLESS YOU ALL – both of you!) might grok. There are three really cool Munchkin items up at the charity’s auction site, as well as a […]

Sweet Charity

A man, a duck, and a dream...

A dream to not look so ridiculous.

Sweet Charity! Let’s talk charity, today. My basic belief is you can never do enough – but my limited organization skills seems to set their own goal posts. Fortunately, I have many kind and generous readers, who make up for it. So here are some quick updates on the various things I’ve been up to, that […]

Cartoonist, Draw Thyself

john kovalic munchkin

Cartoonist, Draw Thyself If you know me, you’ll know the drawing of me just above here does not look like me in the slightest. You know. This one. I’ve started using it as my Twitter avatar, too. Even though it’s not even close to me. It’s so far off the mark, it has  its own […]

My Year in Review II: The Credit Card of Creativity

NewYearCarson

My Year In Review Part II: Getting Back on Track There were two things I was particularly proud of in 2013. The first was making sure that family always came before work. I’m extraordinarily fortunate to be in a position where I can prioritize family life, and I take advantage of that every opportunity I […]

My Year in Review I: “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal”

NewYearCarson

2013 in Review Part I: Bright Shiny Objects (OR, “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal”) 2013 will go down – for me, at any rate – as the year my distraction by Bright, Shiny Objects reached Critical Mass. If the year were a short story, it’d be titled “I Was a Teenage Stretch-Goal.” If I were […]

Dork Tower – Where Do We Go From Here? A Psychological Selfie.

Selfie

  “First Dork Tower in over two months,” noted one tweet, ecstatically, when today’s strip went up. Boy, oh boy, did I hate seeing that. I never meant to take time away from the strip. But things got busy this summer. Very busy. I mean, like “last five minutes of Iron Chef America, where the […]

Eat Brains, Shiny Venns and My ConQuest Schedule

EatBrainsT

My pal Brett Myers suggested this idea to me, a few years ago. I still love it, and I cry silent but tasty Foodie tears that the folks who make my T-shirts didn’t want to make it an actual, honest-to-goodness T-shirt-for-sale. I mean, c’mon! There MUST be ten or twelve people who are into Michael […]

Daddy-Daughter Monster Drawing Day, plus MUNCHKIN: The Book!

GlowWyrmDaughter

Apparently, I missed “Take Your Daughter to Work Day” this year. That’s OK, though.When your job is essentially a glorified version of Goofing Off, every day can be “Take Your Daughter to Work Day.” Still, “Can I be a cartoonist when I grow up?” Daughter, Age 4, will sometimes ask. Making me wonder where I […]

The Path to a Munchkin Pathfinder Cover

Cover2Large

I should be in Hannover, right now, getting ready for the big 20th anniversary party of Hannover Spielt. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. Most of yesterday afternoon was spent at Dane County Regional Airport, watching the weather reports from Minneapolis and Detroit. It made for fine television, really. Much better than watching cable news […]
