“Posed for Long”

Thus begins a series of strips based on my little brother’s move to New York. He was accepted into the Colombia School of Music and will be working on a Masters for education…or something like that.

“Out to Lunch”

First of all, these photos were all taken before work actually started. Often times I have the privilege of opening up in the morning, which leaves me a few minutes to get settled in before having to start doing stuff. And doing stuff makes you crazy. The busier things get the harder it is to stay sane…especially if you need to keep track of multiple unrelated things. In order to do that you have to be organized and being organized takes a lot of effort.
Yes, people talk to themselves. I didn’t used to, but now I do. I have to. It’s the only way to make sense of things. Amirite?

“One More Thing”

Basically this comic and the last two ones are set in the same venue. Our band BOX OF BIRDS played at this new(ish) venue called The Strange near LACC. It’s pretty spacious with a good sound system. However, it is implied in this comic that there is no audience. That’s not completely true. There were 3 people in the audience: the sound guy, the door lady and the girlfriend.
Psh. I’ve played to emptier rooms…no not my bedroom.
The thing that I dislike the most about being in a band is the promoting. Well, it’s not like I don’t like it, I just don’t have a grasp on the concept. Sure, I tell my friends and then what? Also, my friends have seen me perform the same 7 songs for the past 6 years. Why would they bother? I don’t blame them.

Celebrate your victory Los Angeles by destroying shit and possibly stealing stuff. I need a new TV.

“Father Knows Best”

Since I made a comic for Mother’s Day…BEHOLD, a comic for Father’s Day. As much freedom as we have as adults, there is a certain part of me that’s soooo tired. I just want someone else to be in charge for a while. You know, so that I don’t have to worry about the stupid things like buying groceries or servicing my car or paying bills or whatever else we have to do because we’re grown up. Hopefully I’ll be a good father to my kids some day.
I love you dad.
