TCAF, Sick

Since this is my Personal Website, it’s my duty to bore everyone by clogging your bandwidth with self-promotional posts like this one. Dear anyone scrolling slow enough to care: i am presently en route to the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, where i will be trapped all weekend, peddling my little song of self-hate, my juvenile...

better living through spreadsheets

The above spreadsheet represents a pathologically rationalist approach to getting out of Chicago. I’ve scored each state on a scale of 0 (“worst”) to 9 (“best”) according to my life’s present greatest ambitions and fears: 1. environmental toxins (including but not limited to ionizing radiation, fracking wastes, and agricultural runoff) 2. cheap rent (a dying...

The only thing i know (1 of 5)

The first page of a 5-page “comic” that will be appearing in a collection of diary comics entitled A Process of Drastically Reducing One’s Expectations, out this Fall. I’ll post the next pages M, W, F, & M. Spread out that content. Not sure why but that’s what i’m doing?

Spengler’s open-casket service

What is practised as art today — be it music after Wagner or painting after Manet, Cezanne, Leibl and Menzel — is impotence and falsehood.

And so it begins. As haggard and frostbit as these incredibly overpriced little nubs of commodified wilderness may be, they serve as testament that somewhere out there — undoubtedly much further south than chicago — the fungi have begun plotting… Stay tuned for incoming (& most likely fruitless) Nature Pics

instagrim

Our younger, hipper coworker keeps insisting that it’s way cooler to have an instagram than an actual website. Although instagram seems like an even more vacuous waste of time and privacy than twitter, i’m not quite ready to lay down and die completely just yet — so tonight i locked the 21st century in a...
