happy halloween! let's have a MONSTER!

since i have t-minus FOUR HOURS til the children arrive for candy and i still have a lot to prep, i'm going to make this quick.

point the first: book 2 is just about ready for release! i'm gonna have that available before thanksgiving.
point the second: the nikitak patch is currently in production, and will be shipped to me soon! BUT there are LIMITED supplies, so when i open up orders for that you best not delay!!

point the third: i'm working on getting new stickers out!

if you want to have sneak peeks at all this stuff, you should absolutely consider becoming a patron on Patreon :o

support the comic!!

well hi-ho compatriots, sorry for the slight delay on this page. there was a miscommunication with the app company i also publish through which lead to a few days where i just sat on this page unable to post. but the good news is that shouldn't be an issue in the future!

i spent this last weekend kickin' around salem with alf and also lark (a long time reader.. hi lark!) catching pokemon and generally enjoying the weather. i also picked up a woodblock print from a local artist i'm a big fan of. check out the corey press if you're into the paranormal, you will not be disappointed.

i'm still working on getting the nikitak iron-on patch made into a reality, as well as the book 2 printing. currently the prototype patch is in the mail to me so i can check it out, and book2 is in pre-printing with the publisher. in the meantime, sartre is on a grouchy mug you can buy if you hate Every Day.

anyway, that's all i got. patrons got inks and pre-comic planning sketches, and i gotta get back to work on their other rewards. see you all next week!

psst ->

hey folks! autumn has hit and hit hard. beautiful trees, crisp cold weather, and a clear need for heat at night. brrr. time to start prepping for the inevitable deep freeze of massachusetts. but before that, my fav holiday. HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEN

i'm almost level 30 in pokemon go, and do about 3 miles walking every day thanks to it. while it hasn't miraculously cured my depression, ptsd or chronic shoulder pain it HAS helped me stay more focused during work, and to be more alert in the mornings after my walk. thanks pokemon! i can't wait til next month when the new game comes out so i won't have to give up pokemon when the snow traps me in my house, haha

ANYWAY... the page is up and patrons of course got inks. i'd love to be able to come up with more patreon rewards, but the weird thing about adulthood is that no matter how hard you work, you just don't seem to have the spare time you THOUGHT you'd have at the end of the day. or maybe it's just at the end of the day we're so beat we don't want to do extra work. could be either. BUT ON THAT NOTE i'm working on finding another manufacturer for nikitak patches, since the last one fell through pretty hard. so keep your fingers crossed!

see you all next week, folks. til then... NIDOKING wants to battle!

patrons got inks, but also a bit of a life update. i'm a little worn down thinking about it so i'm not gonna repost it here... sorry :B

the weather is finally reflecting fall here, and ohhhh my god it's nice. i'm sure i'll b e singing a different tune once it's reliably cold out, but for now it's GREAT.

i had a good morning of runnin out to a fancy bakery i didnt know existed with my neighbor, then grabbin coffee, then going on kind of a poke-adventure to find a growlithe and an onyx haha. i also put another ghost pokemon in another graveyard gym... i cannot help myself.

i'm off to do patreon rewards now. see you next week!

and patreon patrons got inks as well as camp maps and thumbnails.... ooo

hey guys, it's been kind of a rough/long week (a baby skunk from my burrow was injured and i had to call animal control to put it down) so i'll try to just stick to comic talkin'.

first off, i have a wedding i'm obligated to attend next week. normally this wouldn't be a big deal, but because of the contract i signed saying i wait 3 days before publishing the comic on my sites, it may mean i don't get the page up until i'm back from the wedding. i update my sites manually, editing the html each time, so i can't really just 'set it and forget it' to update while i'm gone. but what can you do! at least y'all know what's going on now.

on the cooler side, one of the patreon patrons (wink wink nudge) asked for their reward to be a write-up on the Rojerian hunting knife. that's the weird looking knife grey uses in the comic, in case you didn't know. sooooo i did that. it's pretty brutal, so be forewarned.

i guess i should also let folks know that the merch shop has a bunch of new things you can get now, like computer cases and notebooks - in addition to stuff like t-shirts and hoodies and mugs. so check it out, see if there's something new that calls out to you with a siren song :O

as always, please consider supporting my patreon so i can keep making comics and keep the hot water on as the weather gets chilly. see you when i see you, droogs.

long haul

first off, folks, lemme say: if you really like the comic *please* consider contributing to the patreon campaign! people who are giving as little as 1$ a month are still making a big difference in my quality of life. small pledges add up, even if its just to a cup of coffee or a few pokeballs for pokemon go. so please! if you enjoy what i produce, think about supporting me on patreon

>>> <<<

other than that... whew, not much to report other than we're still in the middle of a heat wave. i caught a red eft (salamander) and am trying to get it situated in a terrerium, but its hard to tell if a newt is happy... its got a lot of things to hide in (including moss) and a pool (necessary for efts) and im trying to feed it chopped up earthworm... but im not sure its into the worm, so im going to try wingless fruit flies next.

apart from that, i am mostly surviving the heat by alternating guzzling water and guzzling iced coffee. and putting weak pokemon in the gym on purpose and getting my butt kicked after i claim stardust for the day. its all good!!

im hoping to hit up the rock & mineral show in springfield ma this weekend, but we'll see how things go down.
see you next week, droogs

Inhuman update

forgive me being short here, i kinda rolled out of bed to go looking for a pokemon only to find the pokemon go in-game tracker is *entirely* broken... and i'm a lil grumpy. wherever growlithe is, he'll continue to roam free.

we finally got some much-needed rain in new england, after a really punishing july that left everything brittle and dry and a well-worn path through the lawn where i walk to get pokemon from the bridge. i'm hoping august continues to rain, because our whole ecosystem is pretty messed up. i was talking to someone from the dept. of fish & wildlife (she's on team valor) and evidently the turtle nests are straight up dried out. they're literally going out to water those they know of. this also means there's probably no frogs, and the fish have all just ~~vanished~~ from the dry riverbeds. can't find the bodies, can't find any stragglers.

not good, not good at all. it means this winter the skunks and other woodland creatures will need hand-outs more than ever. welp. i'm sure i'll have plenty of mousetrap mice and leftover human food to share... but yeesh, bummer.

i'm going down to NYC next weekend (this weekend??) to hang out with my little sister and get tattoos. i came out to her a while back and that was a relief, but that brings the total family members i'm out to to.... 2. not exactly monumental progress. but it's something.

see you next week, faithful readers. til then....

(and patreon patrons got inks!)

hey all! happy friday, yeah?

i've been having a blast with pokemon go still. almost got my nidoking! i joined the gym on my street and we've held it pretty consistantly, except for *one* night when red took it over. the gyms in the north of town (where i can't walk to them) are hotly contested though! but i been walkin a lot, hatchin & catchin. and as a bonus, i've met a TON of dogs in the neighborhood and got to pet them. i love me some doggis!

it has been aggravating my bad shoulder a lot, but y'know what? worth it. i've walked about four miles every day, and i've been sleeping really well (with a lot fewer nightmares). i've also run into a lot of neighborhood trainers of all ages. i can't imagine how exciting it must be to live in the city playing this though :>c

oh yeah, side note! there's a sale going on in the tshirt shop where *everything* is on sale for 14$ right now. so check it out, yeah?

(and yep, patreon patrons got behind-the scenes stuff)

hey y'all. holy crumbs, i completely forgot to update the comic this weekend. because of pokemon go!!! i live in the woods, so i don't get much besides weedles and pidgys, but it's still really fun for me. i've already run into a few local (way younger) trainers, and we've swapped tips on where we found rarer pokemon in the area.

i did get stopped by the popo though. nothing like trying to explain to a very confused officer that i'm literally wandering around this abandoned building looking for pokemon, nothing shady, it's all good here buddy!!!

my local gym is blue, so i picked blue. they're also OBSCENELY strong. like, cp 900 jolteon strong. so it's going to take a lot of effort before i can join their ranks! but i'm willing to put that effort in haha.

i just wish it didn't suck up so much data/battery/crash so much. but i guess that's what happens when you hire a company that's not nintendo, huh?

oh well. see y'all next week or so with a page :v

hey all, not much to say this week cuz i'm gunked up and still sick with whatever flu it is that alf brought home last week. but given how the world seemed to go last week, i'm glad i took the week off...sometimes this planet can be brutal. i hope you're all okay, though.

there's two new t-shirts in the shop now - a naitec logo shirt, and a koji's hat shirt. i also tweaked the chuian tee so it'll look better on darker designs.

alright, that's all i got. i'm still fighting off this flu (i made it through a fever, but i'm still coughing my lungs up now) so i'm gonna jet. welcome to july, folks

so good

(and yes, patrons got goodies)

okay so. it's been a rough week. a really rough week. america is really a messed up place right now and not much i can say will fix that. but i participated in the #queerselflove tag on twitter, and i ardently urge my readers to NOT look around for a scapegoat in this shooting. don't blame islam for this. it's a religion of peace and a religion that is under enough pressure and unfair scrutiny just to exist in this country. and as a jewish person, i'm already pretty heavy on championing NOT targeting innocent people for their faith. what happened in orlando is a symptom of our society's homophobic ideology, not a symptom of islam. to me, this is not up to debate.

and enough with the thoughts and prayers. how about: vote to get some of the lawmakers who feel that protecting queer youth is unworth their time OUT OF OFFICE. vote to ban semiautomatic assault rifles again. stand up for queer family members to homophobic family members. make the world safer for us. don't just declare this a "gay problem" and ignore it, please.

and for pete's sake, don't feed me that 'dont be negative, queer community!!!' bs. we just lost 49 people, most under the age of 40, to homophobia. a hundred people were gunned down, because of homophobia. the news doesn't want to talk about how the largest mass shooting in history was a hate crime against us. we're allowed to be angry and upset and negative. if our bleeding out inconveniences you, i think it's time you took a long hard look at why you feel that way.

and to my fellow glbtia+ peers - you are amazing, you are strong, you are beautiful. i love you, and you are powerful. thank you for being.

it's pride
i'm proud to be who i am

see you next week, droogs.

(patreon got inks way early this week!)

so i can tell y'all now: if you WANT, you can get comic updates 3 days early by downloading and using the webcomic app. no obligation! but yknow...give it a shot, right? haha

not a ton to say this week. it's saturday here and i finally found a tshirt with flash the sloth from zootopia. that's. that's my big news. exciting isnt it.

also: happy birthday to my editor chris!! editor for print book #2

because THAT is happening soon

okay, later!

Inhuman updated!

okay, BIG NEWS time!
tomorrow i will be signing my very first paid distribution comic for inhuman. it's for a webcomic app! i'm really excited!! it's not for any enormous sum, but it's still very exciting for me.

but the main thing is: this app will get pages 3 days before anywhere else. including my site! so if you're like a real hardcore fan who needs the page IMMEDIATELY, FIRST, you'll wanna get that app after i sign. patreon patrons are still the only ones who get all the sneaky behind the scenes wip stuff though! including first dibs on the tshirts (which are 30% off on their first two days of sale)

speaking of, there's also another tshirt up in the shop. a chuian tee!

grab your own here :v

i'm going to be trying to release one new tshirt a month in my shop! at least, one new inhuman tee a month.

in non-comic news, the cats have become pals and the weather is seriously summer here. humid, hot...and stormy! yaaay storms! i doubled the size of our little veg patch and started some catnip drying...but other than that, yeah, just kinda...glad to be able to have windows open again.

see ya'all next week + three days!
not_fun: cial nixon jarhead (Default)
Inhuman updated!

yowza some EXCITING STUFF happening here in the world of inhuman this week. most exciting for you folks is probably this:

it's back!! but more than that, it's got new art (i lost the original art file hahaha) it comes in lots of colours AND it comes in plus sizes AND it comes in different styles like hoodies or v-necks or tanks!

the big reason i stopped doing t-shirts was it took a lot of time and effort to produce shirts, and the more colours i wanted to use the more it cost...but earlier this month, i was scouted by the company Teepublic. so now they'll handle the shipping, the printing, and all that stuff! and this also means that they'll never be out of stock! i'm super super stoked about this. because NOT ONLY does this mean the nikitak shirt is means i can make MORE shirts! lots of different designs!!!

and patreon patrons already have access to the preliminary ideas for a few of those designs |3

the other stuff i probably can't talk about much yet, so i won't. but it is exciting!!

luna is settling in and ren is sulkily getting used to her...but luna also appears to be allergic to scented cat litter, so that's somethin to be careful of in the near future. she's a mischevious little scamp though...carries toys around, tries to claw furniture (bad luna!) opens the kibble cabinet and tries to feed herself...i'm just glad she doesn't dash the front door, y'know? and she sat on my lap in my work chair for the first time yesterday.

here's a pic of the troublesome shadow :>

see y'all next week! and if you're reading this on friday: grab the nikitak shirt now! cuz teepublic is having a sale, and it's 30% off!! gogogogo!

Inhuman updated!

and patreon patrons got their reward emails this week in addition to inks!

what up compatriots. looks like spring has FINALLY sprung here. leaves are showing up on most trees, most flowers are opening...i'm okay with this as long as it means summer lasts into october. you hear me summer. wink wonk

luna and ren are still adjusting to eachother, but they've started playing with eachother some which is good! luna needs to have some naughty habits attended to, though. like clawing furniture. also she has a tendency to steal things in her mouth and run off with them. she attempted to feed herself some cereal because she thought the bag was full of kibble. luna, come get a human if you want something you dope...

i'm PRETTY EXCITED about the new pokemon!! waiting til winter will be difficult.

i got nothin. i'm overworked and tired. back to work, see you next week folks.

Inhuman update!
(and yes, patrons got inks.)

the journey into the woods continues, with more bad choices being made. yes, let's stay for longer in this alien jungle. nothing bad will come of it.

here in mass, it's been super rainy. but for once, it's not bothering my shoulder as much! i've been doing weight lifting while pinning my shoulder in place, and it's helped a lot. if i don't pin the shoulderblade down, though, it kinda flip flops all over the place and ...yeah, it's not helpful for building up the surrounding muscle.

luna the cat has arrived, and is in the guest room. ren is displeased, but that's pretty normal. considering there's no danger of luna hurting ren and ren is the largest wimp in the entire world, we can just wait this out til they tolerate being in a room together. no biggie. also, luna has a cold and is super being in solitary is probably good for her, at this point. she's a real cuddler tho, with a GIANT tail. i mean, look at this!

like is she a lemur or a kitten???

anyway, it means a little more work for me (i'm the designated animal tender in the house) but i don't much mind. i'm looking forward to this weekend where we can let luna roam around the house while we keep guard.

okay...back to work for me. still got stuff to draw for folks. and if you'd like me to draw for you, remember that patreon is the current way-to-go for that. i hope you'll sign up!

Arc 15 of Inhuman begins NOW!

i'm stoked to be back to drawing these nerds! i've missed them, and missed how they bounce off eachother. i've also had sooo much of this arc written for...well, almost two years now! so it's kind of awesome to finally be bringing it off the notefile and into the real world.

and seriously, really. if you've been enjoying my comic, think about backing my patreon! any amount at all still gains you access to inks, notes and thumbnails...basically all that insider nerd stuff where i'm planning comic stuff out!

i'm also pleased to announce that soon we will have another kitty joining us! we're adopting Luna (provided she passes her vet screening thursday), a 2 year old tuxedo cat who's juuuust about as tiny as ren. i'm naturally nervous about how her introduction will go, but i've also wanted to get ren a 'little sister' for a long, long time now. ren gets major seperation anxiety when left alone, and hopefully having a friend will make it easier for her to cope.

but we couldn't be adopting luna without the support of my patreon patrons
and i'm unable to have patrons without you, my readers, supporting me.

i really can't wait to let this arc unfold for everyone. i hope you're as excited as i am!

the arc 15 cover is up....

next week: it BEGINS

this week was extremely rough, a lot of depression issues. but the cover turned out GREAT and i am REAL PROUD.

more importantly though, alf and i finally agreed it's time. get ren that little sister we've been talking about. so we made our way to the local shelter and met with Luna, a two-year-old tiny black cat who was recently surrendered. luna still needs to be vetted and spayed, but our application has been approved! so once she's through with her doctoring, she can come home with us.

i'm really excited!!! ren will be a lot less excited, but she's had girl cat friends before. i'm sure it'll be fiiiine.
