I’ve got an announcement: I’ve started a new webcomic. It’s called Last Night At Wyrmwood High & you can find it at wyrmwoodhigh.com & it updates every monday and friday! There are already a couple pages up, so please check it out!
Wyrmwood High is about a curse. For the past 50 years Wyrmwood Secondary School has had the same grad prank, but this year Amber (a werewolf), Tiffany (a vampire), and Steph (a reptile) are planning on changing that.
Maybe you’ve seen various sketchbook pages with these characters floating around on them. Maybe you saw the earliest un-edited very much ancient first draft that exists somewhere on my tumblr. Needless to say, I’ve been working on it for a while, & now it’s here for you to read & enjoy!
I regret ever telling her about that family joke. (my last name rhymes with “moss” but is constantly mispronounced as “gross”)
In other news: Lyndsey’s back in town. So I guess she’ll probably show up in some comics…
I work 2 jobs & have been getting a big project ready to share. I don’t get to do fun summer things in the sun. I am pasty as ever. Although, somehow I have a shoe tan on my left foot???
My brain is such a scumbag. Sometimes it feels like no matter what I do, there’s always a little voice in my head saying “You aren’t good enough, you don’t work hard enough, you will never be good enough or work hard enough to achieve your dreams.”
And that’s when I take a deep breath, remind myself that I am a worthwhile human being & tell those thoughts to go frig themselves. Frig themselves to heck. & get on with my day. It’s not always easy, but I try to keep moving forward. The last thing I want to hold me back is myself.
(Coincidentally, the morning after I drew this comic, a friend posted a link to this article.)
I have never been the tall one in a household before. My dad’s 6’5” & my brother’s 6’3”. I’m 5’8”, but back home my mom & I are the short ones.
Since my roommates are short, I’m not allowed to put their dishes on the top shelves of the cupboard.
I’m pretty sure I’ve never mentioned on this tumblr that I went to an arts-focussed elementary school & also an arts-focussed high school. I was very lucky.
I’m actually not still friends with anyone I went to elementary school with, so I couldn’t really ask around to see what anyone else thought about this class. I honestly hadn’t thought about it in years until I tried explaining my elementary arts school curriculum to someone.
Art school was cool. Art school was weird. I got a lot of stories about it.
Life update comix!
I’m really happy at my new place! Chris & Mara my new roommates are great. It’s been really nice having other people around. I’m very, very used to solitude, but this is a nice change.
I know only Mara got a shout out in this comic for being amazing at moving, but Chris was awesome too. They were both total champs for helping me move all my junk.
I have honestly been so stressed about this move for about the past month & I’m so glad it’s finally over.
(also the bathroom at my old place was infamous. Everyone who came over had heard about how creepy it was at some point & insisted on seeing it)
