Blog Name Explanation

Here's a little comic explaining the origin of this blog's name:

I drew this ages ago when the idea of running my own webcomic occurred to me. It's a true story. I actually had to clean part of my studio to find it, so now I feel nice and productive. I drew it much too small (at print size) much too quickly, and was trying to imitate Jennie Breeden's style (of Devil's Panties fame). Never try to imitate another artist's style except as an exercise. Unless you understand the methods that got them there, it's always going to be a pale imitation. Also, my handwriting is not appropriate for things where people will actually need to read.


  1. Awesome! I'm excited to read anything you write and all of those topics are extremely intriguing, I can relate to a lot of them. For your gardening topic, you could write about your herbal gardens in flower pots, I have always wanted to do that...someday.

    1. It's my intention to do exactly that. I have about half the seeds I need, I just need to go down to Campbell's and get the rest and all the stuff to pot them in. My mom has a lot of re-potting that needs doing (that she doesn't have time to do) so I figured I would do that at the same time. I should get around to it fairly soon, all this nice weather really makes me want to get my hands dirty, and I could certainly use the serotonin builders. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!

  2. Yay! I am excited about this :) It gives me a chance to stay in touch with my 'big' sister! I love that comic, I can remember dad saying that on several occasions.
