Over the past year, I’ve been working on coloring, re-lettering, and editing my 12 issue series about my time in the Peace Corps.

When my younger brother suddenly died early last year, I realized that we don’t know how many tomorrows any of us have left. For years, I have thought about publishing my comics or having a table at a local comic book convention; but I always said I could do it later.Read More
To mark the six months since Jordy’s passing, I want to share with all of you the coloring book. I am in the process of getting it published, for those who want a physical copy in hand.
In the meantime, you are welcome to the pictures now.

Our baby is now 13 months old and it has been a beautiful ride of long nights, mini panic attacks at hearing silence, and a series of impulsive laughter and contentment.
Is it possible to be impulsively content? Yes.
There were a few hallmark moments over the past year that I need to put in haiku form.Read More
Last Monday, I took a walk with Elizabeth. It was our normal route around the neighborhood. We first stopped by the playground. She had fun on the swings and sliding down the slide. Then we continued on our afternoon journey through the neighborhood.Read More
As part of the rich and vast cultural expectations of my wife’s heritage, her mother was expected to come and live with us for a period of time slightly before and at a minimum of three months after our baby was born.Read More

Personally I am very thankful for all of the support and feedback I have received from all of you over the years. When I first started this website, it was just to share the work I’ve done. It has now grown into hundreds of pages of writing and thousands of images and illustrations.Read More
