Building Stuff With Wood Jun22

Building Stuff With Wood

I’ve recently gotten into the hobby of building stuff! Reading the sweet blog YoungHouseLove.com (they DIY awesome things), it inspired me to make something too! So after about a dozen trips to the Home Depot and almost as many days of back break labor I made my first piece of furniture (a bed frame) :D Sure it’s super heavy and a little on the ugly side but it’s miiine. If you’ve never built anything it’s hard to really know how great it makes you feel. I even made a song up to sing as I strutted around the house about my accomplishments. It was truly a great time :) The short story, go build...

Cereal Emergency Mar18

Cereal Emergency

Nobody may really know how or why it happens but it is the bain of any respectable cereal connoisseur…the crusty bits that hang out around the tip of the milk jug. We all hate you crusty bits.

How To Make Fun Of A Facebook Post Jun12

How To Make Fun Of A...

I tell you, I don’t think I could make this stuff up. Sometimes all I have to do is just write down whatever my wife says and more times than not, it ends up making it into a comic, she’s great like that :) I don’t know how other comics artists do it. . .

Would You Still Love Me If. . . May29

If your wife is anything like mine, her favorite game is also: “Would you still love me if. . .”  Husbands, try this one out, it’ll teach ‘em a lesson >:D

The Moment I Realized I Was Old May09

The Moment I Realized I Was Old

Theres really something about growing up hmm…For me the moment I sort of realized I was no longer a kid was when I started buying cereal, not based on the amount of marshmallows or frostedness, but when I started looking at the fiber content at the main selling point :) What was it for you (or what do you think it will be) that made you realize you were no longer a kid?

Blessings In The Midst Of Things Apr25

Hooray commissioned art! While I work out the rest of the story (procrastinate) I didn’t want to leave you guys with no update this week. I figured I’d show you this neat commission I did for a buddy of mine, he’s getting married soon (congrats) and this is half of a 2 part...

Catsle Cat Detective (Part 3) Feb06

Catsle Cat Detective...

I think this is the last of Catsle for now, hope you guys liked him. I had a bunch of other ideas but I don’t want him to over stay his welcome–plus these long strips are pretty taxing to do ;)

Catsle Cat Detective (Part 2) Jan31

Catsle Cat Detective...

Catsle the (stupid) cat detective is BACK! Stay tuned as Catsle tries to catch the mad bomber :D

Catsle Cat Detective Jan24

Catsle Cat Detective

Make sure you check out part two :D Anyone else watch the show Castle? If not this might not make too much sense, but whatevs! I think I’m going to make a short series about Catsle, the stupid cat detective, is a pretty funny concept to me, so we’ll see where it goes...

Joy Without Measure (Part 4) Jan17

Joy Without Measure ...

This is the last art strip in this series, I’d like to thank Mrs. Jeanne Walker again for the beautiful poem, and letting me adapt it for the comic. Also, thanks to all of you for putting up with me as I branch out a bit and do something different. You guys are rad.

I’ll really try to push myself artistically with this short series, I hope you guys enjoy it!

Everybody should know that girls, no matter how hard they work, don’t sweat. They glisten.

Diagram of a Woman’s Brain Dec06

Diagram of a Woman’s Brain

This is a pretty fun game to play, you take a piece of paper and diagram what you think a friend’s brain looks like and they do the same for you! If you’ve never done it, it’s a good way to see what people really think about you ;) If you and a loved one would like to try the game out for yourselves, feel free to print out this thinggie and have at it! I’d love to see what you guys come up with too so send em in...

Thanksgiving Day Fam...

Here is a recent commission piece I did and I like how it turned out. It’s a family portrait for one really cool reader and her equally cool family. I like this one so much because she really gave me a good idea of what her family was like, sort of introducing me to each one and sending...

Can’t? Or Won’t? Nov11

Can’t? Or Won&...

Nothing like a little nonsense to start off the day! Seriously though, what is it with wives? If you “organize” the stuff we guys leave laying around, how are we ever supposed to find it later? Maybe think about that before you start “cleaning” and “picking up...

Great Ideas: I Got a Million of ‘Em Nov01

Great Ideas: I Got a...

This sort of thing happens rather frequently, not only from my wife but I get helpful suggestions from all sorts of people.It’s not so much that it’s bad ideas, it’s more that they’re half-ideas. Ah well :D Does anyone else ever get unwanted/bad advice?

I Love You Because Oct25

I Love You Because

My wife loves playing this “game” with me. Other favorites include “Would you love me if…” and “Take out the garbage.” Anywho, it’s all in good fun, I’m not really a curmudgeon…honest. What are some of your favorite games you an your s

Ketchup Breath Oct14

Ketchup Breath

Another semi-true tale! There are a few things that I really just don’t like the smell of, ketchup, ranch, and wet dog. Boo bad smells! If it seems like I’ve been aloof recently I have been! The wife and I have been out of town for quite some time and I’ve been trying to keep...

The Simple Things In Life Aug30

The Simple Things In Life

My dog loooves laying on clothing for some reason, she’ll really go out of her way to lay on some pants I left on the floor. Sometimes she’ll do this funny thing and try and gather it up in a pile to lay down on by squatting over the clothes and kicking them behind her with her front legs. It’s a funny sight :D PS nerd news: I went to my first MTG draft tournament yesterday and it was fun! I asked a ton of questions but I ended up doing really well. Now to convince the wife to play with me so I can whomp her with my fancy new cards >:D

WoW: Destroyer of Relationships Jun16

WoW: Destroyer of Relationships

Yup, the wife and I got back into World of Warcraft, we even got her a separate account so we can play together now. We’ve been getting into an absurd amount of fights since we began playing too. It’s an odd phenomenon how “fun” can turn into “not fun” when playing with loved ones. If you guys want to save Azeroth with us we’re Sugafoot and Sugaface (alliance) or our alts, Moohere and Moothere (Horde) on Whisperwind. Yes we’re nerds, but who cares! :D If you’re new to these parts, the WoW series starts here!

She Eats Poo.

I’ll admit it, I’m more of a cat person, and no, I don’t feel compelled to justify my love of cats to you crazy dog lovers! Ok maybe a little bit, dogs are pretty cool, I admire their faithfulness and all around cheery-ness; however, for some reason I prefer cats,...
