Hold on, give me a minute

So, me and my girlfriend of the past eight or so years broke up a couple of months ago. It's a good thing, super mutual and incredibly loving, etc. but it still kind of fucked me up. Well, not only this - there were a few other things in conjunction with the breakup - but I went through the worst bouts of depression that I've ever had right afterward. The kind of depression that makes it hard to get out of bed and do anything at all. I would literally nap 3-4 times a day for hours at a time. Fucked up. Anyways, that's kind of what this comic is about.

One album that I absolutely fell in love with in this period was I Clung To you hoping We'd Both Drown by Flatsound. It just captures exactly what I was feeling at this time. You can listen to the album over here. It's super good!

Anyway. I'm thinking I might put down autobio for a bit. I've got a lot of ideas and stories written out... but frankly I just don't want to draw them. At least not right now. We'll see what happens. Until next week!

A couple of months ago I really got into reading Johnny Ryan's Angry Youth Comix (which, I HIGHLY recommend, it's been a long time since I've laughed so much reading comix). As a result I wrote a bunch of comics with knives in them and stabbing stuff. A bunch of these comics had me stabbing myself. It was a weird time for me. I might draw a couple more of them, though, probably not along this pathetic self loathing tract.

I feel like I keep saying the same things over and over again. It's as if I'm trying to refine exactly what I mean with each comic. With this internal struggle to be happy in a world that just drives me crazy. If it's getting repetitive please forgive me. I intend to move on from these depressing things eventually, but thinking about them takes up a lot of my time lately and it would be dishonest of me to write... I dunno, fart jokes or something.

Oh, also, I should point you at a little web comic that my friend Miguel has started up called Maladjusted. He's got a couple of comics up now and I'm super curious to see where he goes with it.
