IF – Worn



Hike up your skirt now you better run girl run, before they find out what you’ve done….

Ego Likeness. “16 Miles”

Playing around some more with my Runaway stuff. Running from your problems wears you down, whether you deserved to inherit them or not. And there is a time for flight, and another for fight…

IF – Tension


Drawing things out is a common way I work through and alleviate tension, anxiety, and nameless emotional things that sometimes I don’t even know I’m feeling yet. Last week our older cat Pandora had to go in for a dental cleaning and tooth extraction. Which mean general anesthesia, and all the potential risks it comes with. I trust our vet’s office whole-heartedly, and after bringing Pandora in weekly for eight months recently on account of a stubborn respiratory/eye issue a pretty solid rapport had been established with the doctor who’d be doing the work, and the preliminary blood work came back just fine… but I think there’s always going to be something to signing paperwork that says there’s a risk of death, no matter how small.

She’s fine, her remaining teeth look great, and in her wide-eyed pain drug-fueled haze she even finally managed to rip a ball off of the cat tower that’d been vexing her all year.

IF – Farewell



Sketch of a flashback scene that may or may not be included in future The Runaway books. ;)

I’ve applied for a table at WonderCon in Anaheim for April 2014. My hope is to have the next book out before then, two schedule willing. While it took me three weeks to finish the first, that was with brutal hours and no planning. Now that my 24 Hour Comic Book Day book has become a thing, I intend to script out the full arc before starting the next issue.
