Despondent Tuesday is back, baby!
I tried a few new things with this one. I simplified the drawings (Rock, in particular) and the really cool side-effect is that there seems to be more animation in the characters! I’m also trying to do more panel-breaking.
I’m still not committed to a schedule on the comics right now, but rest assured that there will be more despondency in the near future!
Granitecon was a huge success! I sold tons of books and met some really amazing people! I already can’t wait for next year.
I know I’ve been absent from the web for a while, so I wanted to give you all an update on what’s going on.
Now that Night Terror is done, I’m working on a new comic called “Alice in Slumberland.” I’ll have more details later, but essentially it’s the first in a new series that I’ll be working on for a while. I’m very proud of the work I’ve done on this piece so far, and I can’t wait to share more of it with you!
For fans of despondency, you’ll be happy to know that I’ll be making some new Despondent Mega Man comics soon! The series will go back to a regular schedule again, but I’ll have to space it out more since I have several other projects I’m working on.
Beyond Mode 7, the SNES anthology I’m co-editing with Randall Drew, is going well. We’ve still got a few submissions trickling in, but we’re still hoping for a January 2014 release date.
I’m also working on some new sketches. I’ve been crazy-obsessed with Animal Crossing New Leaf, and I’ve been drawing some of the characters in my spare time for funsies. I’ll be sharing those with you guys soon!
that’s it for now! Expect to see more from me in a week or so. Until then, stay despondent!

I have an announcement! I’ll be attending Granitecon this year again! I’ll be selling my books and stickers with my buddy Randall Drew, and I’d really love for any of you in the Manchester area (and beyond) to come and see us!
I’ll have printed copies of Night Terror to sell, as well as the 2nd volume of Despondent Mega Man (finally).
This is the table layout, and the circled one is where I’ll be!
I will be selling custom sketch cards, as well as taking orders for more elaborate commissions. Don’t be shy! Come say hello and buy some sweet stuff!
Hey guys and gals!
As some of you might already know, I’m co-editing a Super Nintendo anthology. This is the 1st page of a 3-page comic I’m doing about Mega Man X for it.
This one is a bit more personal for me, because I pulled from my own experiences playing the game back in 1994. See back it my day, we didn’t have this fancy internet stuff to help us out as much as we do now. I spent days trying to beat just ONE boss (ANY boss), because I had to play by trail-and-error. This is the way it should be done, and I think I’m a better gamer for it, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating
If you want more information about the SNES anthology, check out this post I did here!
