Anonymous asked: You are so amazing. Why do you hate the things you do? I mean everyone loves it, i swear there must be millions of people who love it! Seriously, i swear on myself, your art is amazing, i stopped drawing a year and a half back, and now i see myself drawing ONLY ONLY ONLY because of you. Thank you so much. But seriously, you should love your art. Its amazingly breathtakinly beautiful.
Man someone taking up art again because of little ‘ol me? Dang. Jeez. Dang. Thank YOU so much. Jeez dude, I’m so glad you’re drawing again- those are melodic words to my ears. Show me some of your art some time.
And what’s up with the influx of super kind messages and words lately it ain’t even the holidays yet you guys

Anonymous asked: have you ever been in love?
In love with books and comics and the wax and wane of a night and passing strangers and the potential energy of simply living living living and trivial moments I could caress in my palms forever if I could and ideas! So many ideas! And friends and shared laughs paired with stupid, really stupid jokes and you guys and overcast days and overwhelming kindness and the general benevolence of most people
But a single person? A single soul person human bean thing? I mean, no, then. Nah.

Anonymous asked: You are actually my inspiration and my goal in life is to be a great artist like you. I love you style, and I actually did an in-the-style-of project for my highschool art class on you. Have a great day!
That’s nuts you’re nuts and I wanna kiss ya
Anonymous asked: Hey how do you make those ink blotches in your comics? :)
It’s a pretty simple process
Before anything else I put water on the paper with a flat watercolor brush and use the form of that water to sort of create the shape I want when I put in the ink (?? is this making sense??). It’s nothing too structured since working with ink or watercolors for that matter is such an organic and unrefined process.
Anyways, after that I plop in the ink wherever I want really and let it diffuse however it pleases
Just let the pigment do its thing man! It has a will of its own
I don’t like this one so *flops on bed and melts away
Anonymous asked: do you have the portfolio you applied to csulb with online somewhere?
Naw man because as far as I know, CSULB didn’t/doesn’t require a portfolio to apply! So I never had one. Yeah high fives and stuff all around!
Anonymous asked: Would ever consider showing us a photo of your rabbit?? :D
the sweetest baby
and I just got a job and the weather is gorgeous and my neighbor’s wind chimes are softly ringing and goddamn I know the government shutdown’s unresolved (in my country at least) and there’s always a cesspool of shit going on small-scale/large-scale but it’s the trivial things we gotta appreciate and keep us rolling y’know? Those tiny speckles of sunlight peeping in through the black, suffocating mesh.
I love you all and whatever that thing is that you’re working hard for or stressing out about or just mulling over YOU CAN DO IT ok alright go team go
I’m sick of talking but it’s the only way I know how to communicate firsthand
Words just seem to dribble out of my mouth like dead, useless slugs nowadays
