It snowed today and I had a lot of free time between jobs to eff around.
This is my most legitimate attempt at an hourly comic day. As you can see I was super busy Feb. 1 so I didn’t bother to ink most of it (CRUDELY IN SHARPIE IN THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON) or scan it until Sunday when I legitimately had a day off. I guess for that reason I treated it more of a writing exercise— or self-help therapy to get over my fear and loathing of autobio. I still have trouble thinking of autobio as anything but stand-up comedy for introverts / a way to spend way too much time giving power to the corniest moments of your day when you should be out there Dorian Gray’in’ it! Your art is your life, and your masterpieces synthesize your art but not your life!
For everything I’m about to get embarrassed about it’ll probably be impossible to read my handwriting on Tumblr so… so WUT.
These are comments on a sponsored ad in my feed. Can’t believe life for us all now includes public forum where everyone is entitled to a dumb-dum opinion /they are proud of having./
My favorite is “fire your ad agency.”
Full disclosure, I didn’t see the ad but won’t need to after the 18,000 comments on this dumb-dum Facebook thing.
Illustrations by Mooshe Nickerson.
Cartoonist and animator Mooshe Nickerson is exhibiting her work WHAT ELSE ARE GIRLFRIENDS FOR? is a series of illustrations from 2010-2014, at the Green Rock Tavern in Port Richmond, Philadelphia. The exhibit is up all month and the reception is this Saturday, February 1st, 2014 starting at 7pm. She describes her work as “exploiting the bizarre & intimate interactions between women through strange and distroted pin-up drawings. From hair dye parties to beach blanket bingos, women showcase ambivilent levels of comfort and shame among other women, blurring a line between girlfriends and girlfriends for the casual”. Mooshe just so happens to be the very next guest on the Comix Gab podcast! Go figure! I’m looking forward to seeing her and her art at the reception, chow down on some pierogies, drink some Philly brews, and reveal our interview on the Comix Gab podcast in two weeks.
Here is the address:
Green Rock Tavern
2546 E. Lehigh Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19125
My show opening was last night, but the show is up ALL MONTH at the Green Rock so if you’re in Philadelphia go and check it out and snag one of the three (!!!!!!!) unsold pieces!
Hourly comix = go to bed already
Haircuts I want, but am not in the right stage of my life for / will make me look like my mother and not Scott Thompson.
Soft updates, new sizes for printing… going to update the last 10 pages at once in the near future and then move on <3

A car-charger coffee pot is all I have wanted for years. The review on this one couldn’t be any clearer, with its use of clip-art and all!
