Lost In Transportation

[actually posted on 4/16/14] I’m still playing catch up on a week’s worth of comics. This is the second new comic I’ve posted today. You can see the previous one by clicking the back button up in the comic navigation.

100% Convention Truefacts! You can almost always find your way TO the convention in the morning by following the Narutos and find your way HOME (to the hotel) in the evening by following the same, partially undressed/disassembled, significantly more sluggish Narutos. They are nature’s cosplay compasses. They flock… or school.. they do one of those. Anyway, they do it search of food, mates and nesting grounds. If you seek any of those things FOLLOW THE NARUTOS! Do not, I REPEAT, DO NOT follow the adult Pokemons anywhere. ANYWHERE. You do not want to go where they’re going. You do not want to see what they see.

2 HANGOUTS THIS WEEK! 

Patreon Patron-ONLY Hangout is tonight [4/16/14] at 9pm central! $10+ Patrons and above can join me on Google Hangout while I draw, answer questions and do other stuff for about an hour, or until we get bored. I will post the link in the Patreon Activity Feed 5-10 minutes before I get started.

That’s Why A Bear Can Rest At Ease

[actually posted on 4/14/14] I’m playing catch up on a week’s worth of comics. Luckily I’ve got three written and I’m banging them out one after another. Just like Josh will be at his Bear Meet Up.

Years ago, after Josh have given me a sort of crash course on Bear culture, I remember it dawning on me how cosmically unfair it was that we had similar man-guts (referring to the outside appearance of the stomach and NOT the gooey bits inside the body including the ACTUAL stomach), yet HIS was considered sexy by those whom HE would consider sexy. Of course moments later my brain recalibrated and remembered that as a straight, white male I was at the lowest difficulty setting and I should probably not envy the dude in a counterculture of an already oppressed counterculture. Still, to be able to eat Pop-Tart ice cream sandwiches for dinner and know that I was IMPROVING my sex appeal… there’s something magical about that.

Il Mostro

My Patreon is just past $1200! That’s amazingly insane! 3 comics a week (M/W/F) starts for real on April 1st! At $1500, you will be forcing me to do FOUR HE comics a week, and I am OK (if not somewhat apprehensive) with that.

SEATTLE FANCY BASTARDS! Emerald City Comicon is TODAY! IT IS NOW! 

David and I will be at booth #1412 right next to Cyanide & Happiness! More info about the con AND MY AWESOME PANEL THAT YOU MUST ATTEND in THIS BLOG POST!

I drew this for you on Thursday, on a plane from Dallas to Seattle, then I finished it in a Seattle hotel room. Somewhere in between I got drunk at a cartoonist party on Rootbeer and Rum, a Dark And Stormy and some sort of honey liqueur. That last one was like if bees vomited whiskey and it was awesome.  Now I’m getting ready for bed, flanked by no less than two and not more than two hundred sleeping, somewhat honey-drunk cartoonists. I’ll do the final count in the morning. I bet it ends up being somewhere in between.

Scared Straight

My Patreon hit $750, so starting in April (the first month Patrons will be charged) HijiNKS ENSUE will have an official Monday/Wednesday/Friday update schedule and THEN it went past $1000 so every month I will do TWO HijiNKS Hangouts, where me and my awesome cartoonist/creator/maker/professional awesome person friends will hang out with you live via Google+, answer questions, tell stories, draw dicks, etc. It will be a lot like my ComfyCon Panel.

At $1500, you will be forcing me to do FOUR HE comics a week, and I am OK with that.

COMMENTERS: Did you ever meet someone as a kid, or hear someone speak as a teen, or interact with a particular person in any way that made you say, “THAT. That is what I want to be.” Hearing Niel deGrasse Tyson talk on Cosmos (seriously, watch this show with your kids) about his encounter with Carl Sagan at 17, and how it shaped not only WHAT he wanted to become, but THE KIND OF PERSON he wanted to be really got me thinking about this.
