Ten Years Ended

Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of the end of the Oracle for Hire years of this comic. It struck me that I’d never really had a moment to sit back and reflect on that run. The Friday that it ended was the first day of 2013 Anime Boston, and that very Monday I launched Star … Continue reading “Ten Years Ended”

The Sick Day

By Mookie | May 23, 2023 | 0 Comments

I was sick yesterday. I woke up with no fever but I had all the aches and fatigue of being ill. But because I wasn’t incapacitated with sickness, whether it was nausea or a screaming headache or something, I decided to try powering through whatever was ailing me. It didn’t go well, and after an … Continue reading “The Sick Day”

As I sit down to write this I’ve just come from one of my weekly gaming sessions with my tabletop roleplaying game group. Since the subject of TTRPGs is fresh on my mind, and I wrote on the subject for Tuesday’s blog, I’m going to continue writing about it today.

My Favorite Characters to Roleplay

By Mookie | May 16, 2023 | 0 Comments

It’s no secret that I’m big into tabletop roleplaying games. TTRPGs are the source of half the characters I’ve put into my comics. My entire career in comics is thanks to making a Diviner Wizard in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Second Edition in the very early 90s and recreating him for a Third Edition game … Continue reading “My Favorite Characters to Roleplay”

Over the course of my life, so far, I’ve had two Art Families. And I miss them both. An Art Family is a close-knit social circle of artists, whether it’s visual or performing, who bounce ideas off one another or create art together and generally support each other in a beautiful mixture of friendship and … Continue reading “Missing My Art Families”

Twenties, Thirties, Forties

By Mookie | May 9, 2023 | 0 Comments

Last month I had a conversation about age with one of my table neighbors at a convention. She was only a few years into her thirties, just as I’m only a few years into my forties. We mused about our twenties together, and I came up with a summary of these ages that I’m pretty … Continue reading “Twenties, Thirties, Forties”

A few months after my son was born, which is eight years ago now, I decided it was finally time to get in shape. I’d attempted it in the past, several times, and the routine never stuck. But after my son was in the picture I felt the need to be physically fit, just like … Continue reading “Struggling With Self Image… Again”

A Potpourri of Thoughts

I don’t have any one thing to talk about at length for today’s blog post, so here instead are a few short musings and reflections. My son gets a lot of cavities, despite our having him regularly brush twice a day. His dentist told us we need to start flossing more reliably with him, and … Continue reading “A Potpourri of Thoughts”

The Chaperone

This week my son’s second grade class went on a field trip to the New England Aquarium. Last year, his first grade class went to the zoo and I applied to be one of the chaperones. I was not picked. I applied again this year, and this time I was chosen to be one of … Continue reading “The Chaperone”
