  • Hard Reset

    Hard Reset

    I almost posted a very different blog about my 2020 plans and expectations, but I had something of a revelation today concerning my approach to creativity: It’s not working. It made the original blog mostly irrelevant, but there are a couple of key points that will sneak their way into this one, too. My wife […]

  • Quick Thoughts on “Finished, Not Perfect”

    Quick Thoughts on “Finished, Not Perfect”

    Whoops! I got busy over the past couple of weeks, which has kind of wrecked my blogging productivity. I didn’t have quite enough time to get everything done just the way I wanted. I didn’t have time to get everything perfect, so nothing got done. I did it wrong. I forgot the code: “Finished, Not […]

  • My 2018: What Worked and What Didn’t

    My 2018: What Worked and What Didn’t

    All right, so, I didn’t know what to expect from 2018. It was my first full year as a parent, and with parenthood came lots of changes, lots of challenges, and a lot of stress. It wasn’t a bad year, but it was a struggle to stay rested and focused on anything for more than […]

    Transitioning from a Night Owl to a Morning Person to Get More Work Done, Better

    Wowie zowie. It’s been a busy couple of weeks! Following two fun, but hectic weekends, overflowing weekdays, a baby too fascinated by exploration to sleep, and a travel-heavy Thanksgiving holiday (including two Thanksgiving dinners and my cousin’s fabulous wedding), it’s no wonder I didn’t update the blog last week, or that I’m running late this […]

  • No Time? No Problem!

    No Time? No Problem!

    This is the post every blogger has made at least once. It’s the inevitable “I don’t have time to blog about my original topic, so I’m going to blog about not having time to blog” post. Unfortunately, both blogging (well, my original post, anyway) and comics took a backseat to some of the more important […]

  • How to Make Comics The Big Skink Way!

    How to Make Comics The Big Skink Way!

    I’ve spent the last couple of weeks telling you about these crazy comics that I make. But, I haven’t told you how I do it. How does a comic develop from that fuzzy idea I had at 2 a.m., stumbling around in the dark, looking for the bathroom, to a finished product on somebody’s bookshelf […]

  • Consistency, or Lack Thereof

    Consistency, or Lack Thereof

    This is another one of those blogs in which I talk myself through a problem I have. I hope that it is helpful for me, and maybe for you, as well. When I was a bowler in high school, there was one particular Saturday afternoon in which I was the only member of my team […]
