Been working on some things in the background over here at Boredom Pays inc. but mostly have just been absorbing as much art as I can.

I’ve been obsessing over some of Kubricks films. Like, I just watched Eyes Wide Shut last night and it completely floored me. Such a fantastic film and incredibly relevant to a lot of the things I’ve been thinking about relationships over the past few months. Plus, the way it’s shot, the dialogue, the pacing, colors acting and use of music? Holy Christ.

Also, been reading a lot of R. Crumb comics. It has taken me a long time to come around to reading a lot of his work because I find some of it pretty offensive have had a hard time getting past some of the pornographic (not because I find it offensive, just uninteresting) elements of some of his work. And… I don’t quite know how I feel about his work quite yet but I’m blown away by the total honesty and complete lack of self censorship he seems to apply to his work. It’s just… refreshing. Even when some of the things he talks about are uncomfortable to sit through. I dunno. The more I read the more I fall in love with his work. So good!

I wrote this about a month ago. Finally got around to drawing it. Kind of tired of doing these comics. Not sure what I’m going to do next but It’s probably going to be different than what I’ve been doing for the past little while. Maybe. We’ll see.

Job hunt

Apparently I like doing weird comics about looking for work. Halfway through drawing this one I remembered this other one that’s kind of similar I did a while back. Weird.

Fuck Teenagers

If there’s one thing I could tell my teenage self it would be to have the courage to be myself and that all of those assholes that call me a fag or make fun of my fucked up teeth are going to “grow up” and lead really boring, pathetic lives. It has been proven to me time and time again.

So, please know, it’s these asshole teenage fuck faces that I hate. Not you sweet, lovely awkward teenage dorks - I love you all <3

New sketch blog - Drawing In The Blanks

So, in an attempt to get better at drawing - and actually work on getting some drawings out - my roomates and I have started a little sketch blog. It’s mostly going to be just drawings of whatever mixed in with a weekly theme that we plan to throw out… rather than, you know, depressing comics. Anyway, if you’re into that sort of thing you should come check it out. This week? Zombies!

I deserve to be loved

You know that moment? When the lyric “I deserve to be loved” comes through your headphones and you really feel it because the timing and key is simply perfect. You want to believe it but instead of having the self respect to agree with that statement in reference to yourself you just just kind of stare blankly ahead and aren’t sure whether you can or not? Yeah, that moment.

I wrote that in my sketchbook yesterday.

Last night I changed my mind. I do deserve to be loved. I deserve self respect. I deserve happiness. This is my one man picket line and I will never compromise on these terms or ever fucking capitulate for anything or anybody. Nobody ever should.

Love <3
