I'm a cartoonist with a thing for griffins. My main comic is Semi-Charmed and I'm also writing a fantasy series called The House of Claw. When I'm not drawing, I'm either playing video games or poking people with sticks.


HA! Yeah I won't be doing anything art related until probably Tues when Skindeep updates and makes me feel guilty for not doing art for a week. 
That awkward feeling when you realize you don't actually care for any of the characters in Dragonflight and find the book kinda dull as a whole, despite the dragons. 

Not for lack of trying but the first of the Pern series isn't gripping me like Split Infinity, last book I read, was. But I have a whole set of Pern audiobooks so maybe I just want a different one. I mean, there's a bunch of them, one's gotta stick.

Yeah they did, my parents came in and we went to lunch and then the Central Park Zoo. I'm going up the weekend for an official celebration of sorts.
