Lil’ Moments of Obstinance Part Deux

Over quarantine I’ve been working on a comic about my dog, Lily, for the MICExpo mini-grant contest thingy. It was great to work with my partner on this as a collaboration as she did most of the verbiage and some editorial work and I just told a story through pictures, and test out doing cleanup, grays and tones on the ol’ iPad after I drew everything by hand. Here are some more images as I anticipate printing off the thing for MICExpo or for my own dang self.

Entering contests and these sorts of projects is a fun way to keep motivated as I abstain from cons for the foreseeable future, and the responsible cons abstain from themselves.

Part and parcel with doing comics at home is opening up a storefront to sell off some of the physical media I had ready to go for comic shows. So if you want a mini-comic, or a coffee mug sticker, check out:

Also, sorry I haven’t been posting for 6 months. First I was busy, then I forgot, then I found WordPress wasn’t working on Chrome, so I have to use Bing (ugh) to update. I should be in more of the swing of things going forward, or I’ll forget again. Either way, the world keeps turning.

The Punchin’ Bag 7: Zone Defense

The Punchin’ Bag encounters an inescapable realm: the friendzone.

Is the friendzone real? Is it a matter of confidence? Is it wrong to expect something out of a relationship with the opposite sex and not accept it for what it is, which may just be friendship? Or does the pain of liking someone and them not liking you back make “just being friends” too difficult to realistically pull off?

My wife and I debate the merits of lamenting being friendzoned, herself having to deal with guys who acted like friends but turned a cold shoulder once they realized “it” wasn’t happening, and myself mired in several friendzones in my youth, lamenting that a girl I liked just didn’t see me “that way”.
