Not Much of a Summer Break After All

By Mookie | August 15, 2023 | 0 Comments

My annual summer break is usually a time I spend relaxing, whether it’s with my wife and son or by myself while they go to her family’s yearly vacation spot. This year I did the latter, except I didn’t spend a lot of time relaxing. I worked straight through my break. The commission list from … Continue reading “Not Much of a Summer Break After All”

Forgot About My Vacation

By Mookie | August 3, 2023 | 0 Comments

As mentioned in my previous blog, summer is a difficult time for my productivity. This summer is also the year I am at my most forgetful, it seems. I didn’t remember until this week that every year I take an annual week-long summer break. My wife and son are leaving for a vacation of their … Continue reading “Forgot About My Vacation”

Summer Difficulties

By Mookie | August 1, 2023 | 0 Comments

Summer is the single worst time for me to be making comics. It’s got nothing to do with the heat, despite this July being the hottest ever recorded. My summer difficulties come from a much more distracting source: my son’s summer vacation. I’ve worked from home for two decades now and I’m very fortunate I … Continue reading “Summer Difficulties”

Almost Used To Be Famous

By Mookie | July 27, 2023 | 0 Comments

I’m not as famous as I used to be, and I’m fine with that. Truth be told, I was never really famous anyway. People who were aware of me, whether they liked or disliked me, had strong feelings about me and my work on both ends of the spectrum. But in comparison to other webcomickers … Continue reading “Almost Used To Be Famous”

I don’t think I have enough words to express the sheer joy I felt both during and after ConnectiCon. There was so much love and excitement both directed at me and coming from me that it became this beautiful swirl of emotional euphoria.

I’m leaving for ConnectiCon this afternoon to get set up for tomorrow’s opening. As I wrote at length on Tuesday’s blog, ConnectiCon is a hugely important and exciting show for me on both a professional and personal level. It’s also where I host the Cosplay Death Match. The Cosplay Death Match is the highlight of … Continue reading “Stage Fright”

This weekend I get to see Garth in person again, which is always a treat. It’s time for ConnectiCon! ConnectiCon is the only convention I have attended every … Continue reading “Countdown to ConnectiCon”

Dwarves of Kadaz

Yesterday’s update was the 600th page of The Legacy of Dominic Deegan, and it signaled the beginning of the end of Snout’s story. His time as the protagonist of this comic is coming to a close, and it will be time to transition to a new format once things wrap up. That new format will … Continue reading “Dwarves of Kadaz”

My Horrible Basement

By Mookie | July 11, 2023 | 0 Comments

When my wife and I were looking to buy a house around eight years ago, we saw some nightmare properties. One was literally a drug den and I’m surprised we made it out of there in one piece. There was another significantly less frightening house that was merely messy, but its basement was in rough … Continue reading “My Horrible Basement”

I’d Rather Fail For Being Too Weird

By Mookie | July 6, 2023 | 0 Comments

At AwesomeCon a few weeks ago there were some very nice people who had some very nice things to say about The Legacy. There were also some very nice people who had some critiques for it, and were very nice about offering them. There weren’t many, but the few critiques said approximately the same things: … Continue reading “I’d Rather Fail For Being Too Weird”
