O Skyrim

0WINTER

I’ve been playing Skyrim again. Or technically, I’ve been modding Skyrim in preparation for playing it, but either way, I decided to revisit my favourite characters, therefore it’s the perfect time to make good on my promise and collect them into a post. I apologise to anyone who doesn’t play or care about the game, because this will be incomprehensible! Continue reading

Patreon

I’m arriving late to Patreon, as is my way. But I finally have (what I think is) a decent idea for it: monthly sketch requests, like back in ye olde tumblr days. As well as occasional comics (starting with the one you see above), and updates from other projects, which I currently have plenty of – and so on. Feel free to take a look at my page, and see if it’s of any interest to you! I’ll do the first round of sketches at the end of May, and I’ll add additional content steadily over time.

Desert Island Meal

I’ve been listening to the Table Manners with Jessie Ware podcast, and the hosts always ask their guests what they’d choose for a “Last Meal on Earth” (then they correct it to “Desert Island Meal,” in case the first is too macabre). Ever since I picked up the show, I’ve been angsting and aaaangsting over this question! I’ve arranged (and rearranged) dishes in my head for months, and at last I’ve carved it down to four meals, the fewest I could manage:

Shiny Poster

A couple people have asked about it, so I added the shiny poster to the store. The shipping makes the price a little steep for a poster all by itself, but I’d be happy to add up to two more per order for $8 USD each (the card paper is thick, so I’m not sure if four or five will fit into the tube!).

Diary Comics

I wrote some diary comics for a class assignment earlier this year. I’d never previously had much interest in diary-anything, but I found the exercise really interesting and helpful so I’ve repeated it a few times since.

I have mixed feelings about the results. For instance, I find it really hard to walk the line between self-censorship and over-sharing. It’s a narrow line, at least for me, and much easier to navigate in fiction. But I keep coming back – one of my classmates told me it all read like a sort of profile, which I liked – so  here are some entries, and you can find the first set on my Instagram.

Art Sale!

00POSTER1000

Update: I’m amazed to say that I’ve already sold out! Thank you to everyone who made a purchase – I’m excited to do the sketches, and I’ll get everything mailed by the end of next week. I’ve updated the store with a second round of art, for anybody who missed the first lot.

***

The Hchom Book is out, and I wanted to do something by way of celebration, so I thought I’d put together an art sale with a promotional poster thrown in. I’ve never made a poster before, so I’m very excited about it. Posterposterposter!

This round, I’ve figured out a real sales page with real paypal buttons, so you don’t have to email me and ask about stock. But please feel free to email me anyway, especially if there’s another illustration you’re interested in. I can check to see if I have it stored away somewhere.

The Hchom Book

The Hchom Book is coming out in a little over three weeks, on September 25th! This is what I’ve been working on (with much love and obsession) all summer. It collects most of the Hchom archives, but is also peppered through with new artwork, and I hope very much that you like it. Here’s the amazon link for a start, but of course I encourage you to pester your local comic book shop and see if they’re willing to order it in.

I have plans for a fun, supplementary project in some form, and maybe an art sale to launch it all, so more on that as September progresses!

Love Food


foodtypes_02.jpg

I was listening to Dolly Alderton’s “Love Stories” podcast the other day, and she asked one of her guests (I’m paraphrasing loosely) what foods she ate when she was in love, and correspondingly what foods she ate when she was heartbroken. I liked this a lot and wanted to add my own version to the Hchom book, extending the list to include other categories. Yes, I am one of those disgusting people who gorges while reading, and you can suss out my favourite books by their smears!

I also wanted to post the list so I could get everybody else’s input. I think the question can be loose: what are your associations from a specific meal, or what foods do you crave in general when working, in love, etc.? I should add as an aside: I view “love”, here, as encompassing friends and family and whatever else, in addition to classic romantic love. I mean, I’ve consumed some exceptional pizza while spending time with The Elder Scrolls.

Here is my Instagram, as promised.

Thank you to everybody who commented on the previous post – and again, to everyone who has visited over the years. I will do my damnedest to make a book for you! I’m going to keep the site up a little while longer, for ease of reference, but it’s now officially an archive. Please imagine dust and echoes, as you scroll.

A Silent Comic and the End of Hchom

To start with, here’s the first page of a silent comic I drew recently. It’s very short, but it might be the first completely textless comic I’ve ever made.

The Beguiling

artforsale

This is just a quick post to say that The Beguiling, in Toronto, sells my original comic pages. Why have I never pointed that out, before? Because I’m bad at PR, I guess. Anyway, I just sent them a bunch of my big, fully painted covers, so here’s the link to that.

Limbo

A while back, a nice director man made a short film based on my old Meathaus comic about a dying dog. Now the film has been posted online, and you can watch it here. I must say, the passage of time makes this no less surreal.
