No Way Of Knowing

Meditating or procrastinating?
Waste of time or living the dream?
To lunch or not to lunch?

Two new comics about feeling overwhelmed.

Thanks to my friend Aatish for listening to me vent and accurately observing that I should chill out :)

Shy With Dogs

These are based on real dogs at the climbing gym I go to and drawn from memory. I think I do this with people too. I'm social, but I have a very careful approach.

Self-Care Swim

New journal comic about the relief that comes after swimming. Personally significant because I just learned to swim this summer. (See my comic for The Lily earlier this year.)

Fewer Birds In The Sky

"It’s as if all birds are canaries, and the entire world their coal mine." - Ed Yong for The Atlantic.

A haunting line that I've been thinking about a lot. New journal comic inspired by the article.

Sketchbook: Goats in the City

A herd of goats were brought to the city for a few months as an NYC Parks "goatham" initiative to clear out weeds. I visited them so much, I almost memorized all their names.

They were 25 to start and these are the final 4 who haven't gone back to the farm. The remaining goats will return upstate this week. They were the highlight of my summer. :)

Marking the Occasion

New York City is an amazing, never-easy, ego-crushing, mettle-testing place to live. I just passed my 12-year anniversary of moving here. 

I guess I wouldn't trade it. That's the kind of trademark ambivalence New Yorkers have -- a feeling like you survived the day, the week, and the last 12 years of your life. 

I'll probably make popcorn and watch Netflix later to celebrate. Cheers.
