Hello from Miami, Florida, where 72 Degrees is considered “WINTERTIME” somehow. You can go outside for 5 seconds without screaming violent curses, and nighttime brings a smile. It’s also starting to get Snow Birds in. Between northern assholes and Canadian jerk-offs, the eye-rolling is at Summer levels again.
Recently been Watching TED LASSO on APPLE TV, and it’s actually quite good. Even though it’s getting a bit cartoony going into the second season, I have genuinely enjoyed it. I always think Good Art is the stuff that sticks to you. You keep thinking about it after the fact.
I like Ted Lasso as a character, and Jason Sudeikis as an actor is highly likable too. Confident but friendly, never admonishing, but overall a cool force to reckon. TED as a character is what interests me the most. The idea of being so damn forthright and upbeat to clash and, in the end, win over the staunchest darkest English dry-witted pessimism is not only ridiculously American but something I want to subscribe to.
I’ve been punk rock for a long fucking time. Too long, really. And when I mean Punk rock, I mean really angry. I took it out on everyone. It’s one of my prouder things now that people sometimes say, “I could never see you being like that.”
“Ah, Good,” I think. “It Means I’m hiding it well.”
Because I still think those horrible thoughts. I still hold my breath and bite my tongue, doing everything in my power to make sure I don’t call someone an asshole or even yet embarrass someone. Even if they are acting shitty, I try to find a way to interject, so they shift gears or get the fuck out of there.
This is what they call wisdom. I think.
So to see a character, fictional as they are, do it with a lousy joke and witty repertoire. I know it’s not real, and it’s a team of writers getting all those words out, but still. I dig it. Hopefully, it will fill the next part of my life
Anyway, have a variant cover. Hopefully to reveal in the next week or so, just waiting for approval. I have another one in the works, but I think I’m getting shot down. Sucks too, because I have done jobs for the other company, but I guess my name is mud right now.
It’s kind of a kick in the stomach, really.
Well, in dealing with Rejection.
Sat down today and just started mulling over my feelings after a possible rejection from my dream project I wanted to do. So I channeled that into a podcast! You see that making wine out of water, making lemons out of lemonade… Oh wait no what?
IS CHUGGING ALONG! I see the home stretch coming up now and I’m excited to get this in the can. I WILL BE MAKING A ZINE for the PATREON or for sale here, a digital one and a physical one, I think for people to collect.
Have a cover coming out for AFTERSHOCK for MANIAC OF NEW YORK! I’m just sharing a part of the sketch for now, but soon I will put out the full cover when it’s available for you guys to order! Check it out soon from ComicXposure.

Working hard to wrap up everything before the holidays. I will be going dark once Thanksgiving starts, a thing I do during the holidays. I like to get away from social media, be around family and friends, and also focus on my work without having to post stuff during that time. Just a heads up.
Alright, thank you for reading and for generally giving attention to my work. I am gonna go TED LASSO it up, and be a better me,
