Always Overthinking

Have you ever considered that the biggest fanny pack is a messenger bag? And that the biggest hacky sack is a bean bag? Just philosophizing ;)

These are random thoughts I had while waiting for the subway train. I have been writing and reflecting on heavy topics lately, so it's nice to take a break and play with nonsense ideas now and then.

My favorite thing about this comic is the elephant eye roll.

Me Vs. Social Media

This is especially true when I'm at a difficult stage of a project or dealing with something hard or just "introverting".

Best Gift Ever

First cartoon of a new year. I took a break from posting on social media over the holidays and it was the best gift ever.

There's a lot going on in the world and a lot to process.

For the journey ahead, I wish you solace and I wish you strength.

Take breaks as needed.

A heart full of thanks for your support and here's to a new decade.

Sketchbook: Working Through It

I've been writing through some hard stuff, which I'm learning is an important part of the creative process. I'm also learning to to replenish as I go. Thanks for your patience and support while I work through it. It's not easy, but I'm feeling the love too.

Less Single On Average

I sometimes wish I had a naturally charming personality and that I always knew the socially appropriate thing to say.

It would make life less awkward --

But maybe also more boring for elephants :)

Very Intense Humans

Please excuse the lag in posting new journal comics. I spent my holiday focusing on writing longer-form material and reminding myself it is okay to be in the middle of the process. Thanks for reading along as I figure it out.

Artists are very intense humans :)
