The show at The Secret Headquarters was great! There was much conversation and merrymaking. Many thanks to all who came out.
Original pieces from the show are available for purchase through The Secret Headquarters’ online shop. They make great stocking stuffers, presuming you have ridiculously shaped stockings.
This is cute, I was there. I saw this Happen IN REAL TIME!
HELLO, HOW ARE YOU?
This is part of a book proposal I’ve been noodling with for a while now, this particular bit being inspired by something I wrote last year about drawing horses and how nothing bad happens when you make a bad drawing. Nobody will die if your horse drawing looks stupid. The worst thing that happens is you get a little better at drawing horses. Just put your fun hat on and draw that dang horse or motorcycle or whatever it is you’re afraid to draw.
It’s All Bullshit: Pete Toms’ On Hiatus Pt. 2
Sometimes the relentless grind of stupidity and negativity and sheer stubborn regression makes me give up on comics for a bit. I look around on the internet, I see people being assholes and everyone complaining about how bad comics are these days and I feel like I’m stuck in an infinite loop of surreality, where huge creative strides in the medium are cast aside and all we want to do is talk shit about one another because that’s more exciting. It’s just hard to get worked up about things that don’t fucking matter when real things happen, like an ex-girlfriend dying a horrible death on a poorly constructed highway. And as much as I try to focus on the work that blows me away, eventually the energy it takes to hone in on the good shit is sucked dry by the energy it takes to ignore the suffocating bleakness of the medium you call home. Maybe this is why something like the second part of Pete Toms’ On Hiatus clicks with me enough to motivate me to jump back in to the cesspool.
