Oh, the things you find when you quite literally clean your closet.
An unfinished Max & Lily from 1998. No other info other than the #36 partially erased on the back. I have no idea why I never drew it. All the dialogue was taken from actual job interviews I was going on during that time. I had sent out 100 resumes and went on nearly 65 interviews. It was freaking crazy. Then again, so were the employers. Madness.
Guys? The flyover states are gorgeous. At least what I think of the thousand of miles of emptiness as I hurdle from Chicago to the west coast. On the way back all I can think, road-weary and numb, is “Would it kill someone to fill all of this up with shopping malls and condos?”

Hey! Today, the lovely state of Illinois passed legislation making it a-ok for same sex marriages! I live in Illinois so you’re damn right I’m happy about it. I drew this CLASSIC Max & Lily comic about the ridiculousness of who is “allowed” to marry 9 years ago. I had no idea then that I would be so thrilled to have the freedom to marry, to have the same rights as everyone else. Illinois is the 15th state to catch up with the rest of the cool kids, so the country has a lot of work to do. But I think we’re getting there much faster than a lot of us ever expected.
Oh, hey! Hello! Long time no post, eh? It’s been a very busy late summer and early fall. And how appropriate that I return with this strip since I spent the better part of yesterday in a car on a long-ass road trip. I don’t care if I ever see the inside of my motor vehicle again.
As I said previously, I drive a lot. Driving long distances is fun and boring at the same time. So much so that I often find myself running out of entertainment mere minutes into the trip. Which makes the crazy long day crossing Nevada on the way to San Francisco a journey into insanity.
Where the heck have I been?
And…DONE! Cover art for JD Glass’ book Punk and Zen: The Remix. Coming soon from Affinity Press.
