Welp, so. I guess I'm here now and it's #introduction / #introductions time? I'm a #science writer, #journalist, #podcast host & video maker with a special fondness for weird/gross biology. I'm also a #DnD GM and a huge nerd for #books (especially #scifi) and #comics.

This week, I wrote about a type of lemur that picks its nose with an incredibly spindly finger that's so long it can reach up through its nasal cavity and touch its pharynx.

Nice to meet you, too!

Computed X-ray tomography shows the interior of an aye-aye's skull as it picks its nose with a very long finger.

Add fangs and make a bad pun. Now you have a whole new costume. #comics #mastoween
A three by three grid of small frames shows a series of vampire-based pun costumes. From top left to bottom right: the basic vampire, the vampirate, a person with fangs wearing a beret and smoking named Vam-Pierre, a vampire holding a lighter: Vam-pyromaniac, a vampire piñata (vam-piñata) with a blindfolded kid whacking at it with a stick, a vam-pilgrim wearing the ridiculous pilgrim hat, Mr. Vam-Peanut (an anthropomorphic peanut with top hat, monocle, and cane, plus of course the vampire fangs), Vam-Pac Man, and a Vam-pineapple.

Some older Inktober best-of. It was the first year I completed the challenge and I still really like the little guys 😀

Ben Sargent's latest Loon Star State cartoon, from the July/August 2023 issue of Texas Observer magazine:

An older man in a Texas flag cap is reading a newspaper, confronted by a dictatorial looking person labeled “Legislature.“
Man: Wait, you're gutting local control ...
Lege: You can't be trusted with local government ...
Man: And public education?
Lege: Or public education ...
Man: Yeah welll ... You just wait 'til th'next election—
Lege: ... And certainly not elections.

Utown is out in stores! This book means everything to me and I'm so, so happy it got an English release. There's something really empowering about tackling the US market with a creator-owned, indie comic like this one ❤

We made these by special request some time ago but Disability Pride month seemed like the perfect time to share them. We say it a lot but it's worth repeating, anyone can do science⁠

Utown is the story of a notorious stoner so each year I do a little something for 4/20. Yes, I'm an adult 😛

Couldn't have said it better myself. (And I'm literally writing a dissertation related to motivated reasoning & cognitive bias).

How I miss Calvin and Hobbes. #art #comics
Hobbes: Denial springs eternal.
Calvin: It's not denial. I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

The last panel in a Calvin and Hobbes comic by Bill Watterson. September 28, 1992

I’m a person that makes art. Lately in the form of indie comics. I also make videos about music.
Current events are also of interest, but I’ll just boost that stuff rather than make original posts (mostly).
Here is a good example of one of my ongoing comic strips:

And a drawing I made of Deirdre Beaubeirdre from Everything Everywhere All At Once, that I think came out pretty good.

An illustration I made of Deirdre Beaubeirdre from Everything Everywhere All At Once. She has stapled a bit of paper onto her forehead and looks quite angry. It's something that happens in the movie.

Getting my priorities straight #mastoart #comics #goth
Panel 1: looking at phone, "What is wrong with me"
Panel 2: I should be scheduling more therapy, joining the gym or picking a new hobby. 
Panel 3: instead, I've entered my slut era, but like, unironically.
Me still on the phone, buying a bunch of gothy fetish wear and platform boots : This is just what you do when you move to Berlin!

I forget if I ever posted this here, but I comic'd special session my GM ran for the holidays about a sled-like Von Neumann probe brainwashing the children of Rumreign. Just posted it on my site here:

It starts a little medias res, but I'm hoping it still makes sense. Let me know! There's some context on the site as well as a link to a transcription.

I'll be uploading the next pages over the next couple days.

It really bums me out that setting up your own webcomics site is so difficult nowadays, and you don't need a lot! I'm started a project to help make it easier by using a static site generator.

It's a very, VERY early version, but if you're interested, it's called "Sunday Papers" and the starter code is here:

Please feel free to use/boost/ask questions!
