What’s it like finding out, as a young adult who thought his ADD days were behind him, that he still ‘has’ it, and it isn’t doing him any favors? And what’s it like to try a bunch of different meds to help get by? Let me show you!

I’ve been on a roll with the Nothing Better pages the last couple months. Time to catch up!

Similarities Between Cartoonists and Cyclists: They have more in common than you think!

I first thought of this comic years ago, after noticing how I spent a lot of time leaning over both a drawing table and a bike. Once the concept was in my head I started to notice other similarities as well, for better or worse.

The future’s so bright…

Shades is a display font inspired by those shutter sunglasses from the 80’s. Only one version right now. If people like it maybe I’ll work on a bold version, or lowercase. Download it HERE (pay what you want).

So I’m married to this amazingly talented woman, Cori Doerrfeld. She’s been working on this neat little series of Euro-influenced silent stories she’s hoping to develop into a series of picture books. You can read them all so far:

-"Help"

-"Soar"

-"Got You"

-"Paint"

-"Race"

-"Hero"

-"Ready"

And while you’re at it, you should check out her website too!

The Nothing Better cast. Not sure what I’ll use this for. Can’t decide how to finish it (the type at the bottom mostly).

Something to make you think as we welcome 2014.
Interesting process on this one, done while out of town. Penciled in my sketchbook, ‘scanned’ using my iPad’s camera, then inked and colored digitally. I may try and do more of these little comic ‘essays’ this year…

The last five pages of Nothing Better #15, penciled! When I stopped work on NB in lieu of paid work, I don’t know why I didn’t just finish these last five. They’re coming!
