"Teacher, tell us of Doubt."

"Doubt is what comes before knowledge."

"Teacher, what comes before Doubt?"


Wishing you a Happy Birthday, Jason.

Webster's Dictionary defines hiatus.

Good for them.

How I feel these mornings. In other news, work has become unbearable. More on that later.

Mother's Day

He went to Jareds

May lose a few readers with this one:

I think I began to hate the concept of the engagement ring when it became more important than the actual engagement.

Birthday Post

Spent most of the day playing with my new toy. The folks sent me a nice Wacom Tablet. A special thank you to them. And now I am able to digitally ink and paint that sketch of dirty old man. I can't wait to use this with Photoshop.

27, people. 25 was a bit of a milestone since it was a quarter of a century. 26, I just shrugged my shoulders. Now I'm 27. And I've got to say, I don't think this feeling of manhood exists. I think it was something created by the media to get people to buy more aftershave and go to work on time.

So it's come to this...Fanart

Bernard and Purple Tentacle (otherwise known as the evil tentacle).

These two are featured in Day of the Tentacle, a wonderfully absurd computer adventure game from LucasArts. One of those games where you walk around and select actions like "Pick Up" and "Talk to" in combination with other characters and items. LucasArts got a lot of my money back in the day. Such classics include:

The Secret of Monkey Island
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge
The Curse of Monkey Island (Gary Coleman did a voice cameo)

Sam and Max Hit the Road

Maniac Mansion
Day of the Tentacle


Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb


If you think the image is confusing, be glad I didn't include the Time Traveling Port-A-Potties.

I knew I couldn't keep up that pace...

Another classic comic. I'm tired. So sue me.

The Man in a Case

Anton Chekhov wrote a short story titled "The Man in a Case." It featured a man as you might expect. His style of dress kept him closed off from the world as did his apartment, which featured a bed surrounded by curtains. The man was miserable most of his life. He had a brief love affair but it ended shortly before he died. They placed him in the coffin and his friend remarked that he had never seen him look happier.

My day began with someone dying in a cubicle. It wasn't on my floor and it wasn't anyone I knew. Someone died in a cubicle today and I find that to be horribly depressing.

So I missed a day...

To make up for it, there's a new comic up at New schedule idea: Daily sketch posts during the week and use the weekend for Cumin and Reginald?

Dear god, I love this image so much.

When Pigs Rocket

Dan: About as much chance as pigs flying.
Me: Could strap a rocket to its back.
Dan: Then it'd be rocketing.
Me: Really?
Dan: Yeah, it's like the Rocketeer. Otherwise they would've just called him 'The Flier.'
Me: How dare you bring up that film.

For the sake of modesty

Instead of posting old stuff, if I'm ever too tired to do anything elaborate or just looked at the clock and thought "Oh shit", I will post one of these:

Scene from my walk home. And I knew exactly what this guy was up to. He picked the smallest tree next to the busiest path in Loring Park and then I saw the thin stream emerge. While the people on the path we're spared, those driving on the highway that was ten feet away from the man got a nice view.

When in doubt, make a fart joke

Okay, I've been cheating. The purpose of the daily post was to put up new stuff but when midnight suddenly rolls around and I have blank pages, an old doodle gets posted.

Y'know, I think it's been a year since I bought my first sketchbook for all this silly comic nonsense.

Ben and Cooper

Taken directly from an email Ben sent me concerning the possibility of living with a giant praying mantis.

Can I get an opinion on hand drawn word balloons vs those created by ComicLife?
