Hello ComicsCamp. I'm a duck.
Artist/Writer/Migratory coffee drinker.

I don't know how social media works, but I'm here to have some fun while I make books πŸ˜€

My approach has been to make a list of the things I want. When this has passed, and I can be reasonably assured I'm not placing other people in danger just to get them, I'll come back to that list and start buying. I know that approach won't work for everyone, but I would encourage us all to think about procuring goods in a way that lowers both personal risk and the risk we place others in.

Does any of this help?

I think the debate about "necessity" is a way to move goalposts, and I think it's a lot more helpful to consider whether you need something or just want it. Right now might not be the best time to prioritize wants because the supply chain is just other people (a lot of people, actually) and other people get sick. So I guess my perspective is that it's the wrong question. I think the right question is whether you need what you buy? If you need it, I don't think anyone can fault you for getting it

I've seen some discussions about whether people should stop ordering things online and I wanted to give my perspective. (Disclaimer: I'm no expert, I just load delivery trucks for a living.)

Today when I went to pick up @turtlestory after work I parked in a different spot and waited for her to call, then pretended I forgot.

She got me back by pretending my favorite restaurant closed.

I needed a good laugh in all this πŸ˜„

I want to talk a bit about the cultural value of April Fools' Day.

There are many people asking amidst this global pandemic and related stress that everyone forgo April Fools' Day jokes and pranks. There are understandable and well-intentioned concerns, but I disagree with this view of April 1st. Here's why: (THREAD)

My art history teacher suggested we keep a journal during these "interesting times" but my entries keep sounding like the recordings from Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Well, it was a nice weekend but now it's time to head out and load more nonessential Amazon packages. Stay safe out there everybody. I would if I could. πŸ˜„

This is my last semester in college. In about a month and a half I'll graduate with an Associate of Communications.

This fall is my little brother's first semester of college. He's going to become a PE Teacher πŸ˜„

I wrote this whole thing up for him and I wanted to share it here in case anyone else is thinking about college, or in college and maybe a little lost, or a graduate and not sure how to feel about it.

Hey there. Long time no... uh... type? I hope everyone is doing well. I'm glad to finally have a day off. 😴

Everyone talks about the way pneumonia feels in your lungs but they never tell you about the confusion and complete lack of energy.

I don't think I'll be doing any cons next year. Something that I absolutely miss is the pre-social media experience of hearing nothing at all from your favorite band/author for years and then suddenly being hit by their new release.

That's the sort of creative space I really want.

Comicon Day 2 of 2:
Honestly, the more projects I finish the less I feel like I belong here. I don't know if it's burnout or if my work has just moved far enough out into left field that I don't fit anymore.

I was a little sad and frustrated about it yesterday, but I'm getting on with accepting it. What else you gonna do?

Some more pictures from the Cairngorms. This is Lochan Uaine, the "small green loch". So called obviously because of its amazing colour.

Hey everyone. Wow so apparently I missed a lot. We have polls now? When did that happen?

You might not know this, but people like nice people and want to follow them. It's not a conspiracy
