Y’all, i’m pretty deep into the instagram and not very into my website atm. But i just finished a five-page watercolored story about nature that, if i could get photoshop on my new laptop, i would have posted up here today. But i don’t and so i didn’t, and instead i’ll go to work and then come home and then email some things and eat some dinner and possibly in the next couple of days i will start posting pages. It’s real scary because i’m starting to wonder if the website — the actual, real, pay-for-hosting website format — is obsolete! Is this true? Doesn’t it seem a bit too isolated in here? A little tryhard? A little too $8-a-month-plus-domain-fees? Now that i’ve found out how much easier (and free-er) (and more popular) it is to update instagram with pictures of drawings i’m working on or mushrooms i’m fondling in the woods, all i want to use this website for is rambling concerns about my internal life, polls about where i should move, and asking people if they have a cheap car they want to sell me. Boring! It seems like so much effort for so little return, now that i’m not filling this up with self-pitying diary comics. Well, maybe it will be more useful once my new book comes out in May. Also, Alec Longstreth is helping me put together a POD book of the aforementioned self-pitying diary comics, and that should be out by Fall, so i will mention that here as well.
Other than that though, follow me on instagram (gabbyschulz). It’s so happy there. Just pictures of dogs, flowers, and good art. Good vibes & likes, without the petty drama and intolerable Zizek-fan crypto-Stalinists of twitter. Maybe i’m just getting old but all i want to do with the internet anymore is show people doodles and mushrooms. We all know the world is a giant methane bomb that humans don’t deserve to exist on. We don’t need any more proof, or any more tiresome parsing of our pathetic Solutions. Just scroll into the collapse, try not to breed, and close the door as softly as possible behind you.
