In my last semester of grad school, I learned how to make GIFs! The timing on this is perfect because I am working on a series of short, sock-puppet-themed movies called BoardSockEmpire.

Apologies for my absence lo these past weeks. It’s been a busy month! Here’s what’s going on:
-I got engaged
-I finished grad school
-I launched my new comic, Tomorrow Jerks -I am moving

The first chapter is up already and the second chapter is rolling out, one page a week! It’s free, Bee Tee Dubs. Here’re a couple o’ pages, to give you a taste. They’re unrelated:

Pee Wee: The real work of art
I was trying to tell people that I didn’t photoshop my head onto Czar Nicolas II’s body, but raised a lot of questions.
This might be the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.
