Posted by on November 22nd, 2016, under SNAPSHOTS

Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of reflection and appreciation. No really, I’m serious. It’s sometimes reeeeeally hard to remember that when you’re arguing with a relative, listening to Christmas music in traffic, or just stone cold comatose from overeating.

The Snowman Apocalypse

Posted by on December 22nd, 2015, under SNAPSHOTS

I remember avidly reading Calvin and Hobbes through my youth. Seeing this little boy’s seasonally majestic, twisted and hilarious snow creations made me wish for something most people grow to dread where they live. Snow! It’s officially winter in L.A. And by that I basically mean I can’t comfortably wear shorts anymore and my nipples […]

Comic by According to Devin.   I used to loooooove board games as a kid. Still do. Oh the sweet, cardboardy smell of the package!

Fowl Language Comics   I really don’t understand this whole “raising children” thing. I use the “air quotes” because it feels like my version of parenting is false and just wrong.

  Call it a side effect, a byproduct or an outcome, but fatherhood can lead to some rad consequences. It’s the most responsibility and pressure you can earn, but it’s also a perfect opportunity. I see a lot of “dads are buddies” stereotypes. It can be confusing to witness. There’s a pervasive myth that we’re […]
