It’s New Bot Monday! Welcome to Twiki who hails from 1979 by way of the year 2491 on the tv show Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. He’s an “ambuquod” helper robot, carrying on his chest an artificial intelligence: Dr. Theopolis. Twiki is kinda funny, and was mostly voiced by Mel Blanc, famed Warner Bros cartoon actor.
Peak Expatriate Kid. This is a not-happy smile. I want to tell my younger self: “the unease you’re feeling is your mind expanding to learn the world is unfair, but also magical. This wisdom will comfort you in the far future. Also, take better care of your teeth.”
submitted a comic to a literary journal today. comics are malleable and I am a cartoonist. I think of the terrible gag strips I sent to The New Yorker in 1989 and the very nice, very deserved rejection they got. and I plot my next comic.
Reading @melstringer’s new travel zine North-Bound in San Diego’s most classic diner Rudford’s seems right. (And I got to stop into @burn_all_books and talk a lil #risograph tech with Nick on my lunch hour too)
Happy Divorce Day to me and Leah. 15 years, 14 days. It is impossible to encapsulate all I learned from and with Leah. I would not take it back. I remain very lucky and am happy to call her a friend. A+
Detail of panel from my latest submission to @burn_all_books art anthology zine “Sundays Quarterly”—I’m working on a way to make it easy for folx to get ahold of the comics I’ve done. Possibly Gumroad. Maybe web. In the meantime get down to the @burn_all_books shop behind @verbatim.books and buy SQ! Also playing with purely web-based formats but I like them less.
It is hard to imagine what it would mean for the holidays for someone to lose their mother or grandma on New Year’s Eve. Every year I understand my elders more and more and the struggles that come with the inherent hardness of life.
My top 9 features walks on the beach, my late mom, San Diego Comic Con, drawing at the Vietnam Memorial, candy sushi, plenty of time with @hellokellykuhl and a post from @spill_drink_and_draw. It’s been quite a good year. #top9 #sdcc2019 #cosplay #spillsantaana
Rereading 13 years later. Impressed @_scott_mccloud’s “Chapter 5-1/2” is still online. I have a record of bookmarking it in 2006. Also, I’ve made some comics. Never to late to start making things. Bookmark by @ronnyvardyart
I don’t do resolutions for a new year. Don’t really even believe in them. But I made 4 pieces for @burn_all_books in 2019. Follow and Support them! Wherever I publish, more comics are coming. #indiecomics #risograph #localbookstore
Sorry I’m running late my United flight on a 757-200 had an engine failure necessitating a non-emergency landing in the Mile High City and a stopover. I think I’ll use my lunch voucher on a Bloody Mary. (I kid, it was all handled very professionally. From fault to safe landing was about 25 minutes).
Corpsman James J Crawford 2nd/506 “Curahees” 101st Airborne Div. Vietnam 1969-1970. Our visits to Virginia co-incident with Veteran’s Day. There’s a ceremony happening here at The Wall today and we’re checking it out.
Me. Taken possibly in San Diego after we got back from New Orleans. I’m 12, i think. Playing my Epoch Galaxy II game (pretty sure it was unlicensed Galaxian) which I loved so much. I‘ve no idea who took this photo or why it was taken.
Today’s #inktober is a collaboration with my late Tata. My Mom told me he would draw this little dog whenever he was idle. I surely wish I could talk to him about it. Maybe my aunties know more about this little guy though. #inktober2019. Made with @Procreate
