I am very pleased to announce that the Kickstarter campaign to print DREAMER, the fourth and final book of Snout’s search for the legacy of Dominic Deegan, reached its funding goal over the weekend! I’ve mentioned this before but I’ll say it again: this campaign had me extra nervous, both because of how strange and … Continue reading “A Fully Funded Kickstarter!”

The Kickstarter campaign to print DREAMER, the fourth and final book of Snout’s dreamquest, is going great! As of this writing it is 87% funded with just under two weeks remaining!

A Humbling Weekend with Several Disclaimers

By Mookie | March 12, 2024 | 0 Comments

Like the title of today’s blog says, AwesomeCon was a humbling weekend for yours truly, but not without its disclaimers and reflections. Let’s get the humbling part out of the way first. I spent much of AwesomeCon weekend feeling invisible while watching Garth make sales of his new comic book, A Polycule of Mars. Attendees … Continue reading “A Humbling Weekend with Several Disclaimers”

It should come as no surprise that this and almost every blog post for the next month is going to be about the Kickstarter campaign to print DREAMER, the fourth and final book of Snout’s adventure. Because when you’re crowdfunding this is what you have to do. The response so far has been wonderful. As … Continue reading “Kickstarter This, Kickstarter That”

February Break

By Mookie | February 20, 2024 | 0 Comments

Here in Massachusetts the public school system gives kids a week off in February. That week is this week, and traditionally it’s seven days of struggling to work on art and comics while trying to keep my nine-year-old son entertained. That’s been the case in the past, anyway. This year things are slightly different. My … Continue reading “February Break”

Character Ideas

I’m one of those people who’s constantly toying around with ideas for new characters, whether they’re meant for here in the comic, or tabletop roleplaying games, or random ideas for my Patreon page, or just for my own amusement. Some stick around for years waiting for their opportunity, others come to me in the moment, … Continue reading “Character Ideas”

This Does Not Come Naturally… To Wizards!

By Mookie | February 13, 2024 | 0 Comments

Last week I wrote a blog about how nothing about making comics comes to me naturally and how I’ve had to work very hard over the past twenty years to achieve my current level of skill. There was a comparison I meant to make in that original blog post which didn’t seem to fit in … Continue reading “This Does Not Come Naturally… To Wizards!”

This Does Not Come Naturally

By Mookie | February 8, 2024 | 0 Comments

I wish I was “naturally gifted” or “a natural” when it came to making art because all of this is really hard for me. I have a feeling there are more of these types of people in various forms of fiction, where a character needs to get good at something fast for the sake of … Continue reading “This Does Not Come Naturally”

Soul Coughing

By Mookie | February 6, 2024 | 0 Comments

I’ve been coughing all year. Since January started I and everyone in my household have been coughing. Our chests are sore from the seemingly endless contractions of muscles that come from repeatedly coughing, and some nights it’s so irritating that I can feel the strain of the cough behind my eyes. I’m starting to feel … Continue reading “Soul Coughing”
