Lackadaisy on Patreon
Uh...something's up with the Journal widget here. Apologies for the repeat journal entry. I tried to edit my old one and it disappeared entirely.
I've recently left my job in the game industry so that I could focus more of my time and attention on Lackadaisy.  Patreon is my weapon of choice in trying to see this to fruition.
If more Lackadaisy comic updates, illustrations, tutorials, mini-comics, books and other things interests you, please do check it out!

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog.  In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an i

Giving up on giving up.
Webcomics. It's probably the thing I'm best at, which is pretty fucking depressing considering the rather mediocre, amateurish level I work at.
So far, since I started doing comics, I've done something like six series and a couple of false starts. They always get cancelled rather unceremoniously, I take a 3 to 6 month break then start a new series which is pretty much the same fucking thing but with a different title.
So what's going on here? Well, making comics it's pretty important to me. Not that I think what I make is important, but the act of creation. Like I said, making comics is the one thing I've invested my time learning and practising. It's the thing I've obsessively been doing for a couple of decades now. This is where the problem lies.
It seems as there is always this build up of frustration with the limit of my own skills. A sense that my best is not that great to begin with, whether it be with the art or the writing... or both.
Even to this day I make comics to prove a p

The Importance of Nier: Automata
I like video games. A lot.
I've been playing games since I could walk, all the way from Pac-Man and Space Invaders to today's games.
One thing I would never ever say though is that games are important (not in the vital sense anyway).
Social equality, intellectualism, accessible education and healthcare. Those things are important, not video games. Just because I play games obsessively doesn't mean I don't understand that they are just a hobby like any other. So when I say a game is important, believe me, I'm not pulling that statement out of my arse.
Nier: Automata was a surprise to me, not just in how good the game is (and believe me, it's a fucking incredible game).
This game manages something that until now no other game (or movie, book, comic... etc) has ever done. It gave me a feeling I've never felt before. It took advantage of its medium to convey a feeling in such a manner that it left me shaken, confused, elated and giddy.
Now, I don't want to giv
