Nursery Murals

I’m home sick today. I don’t have a new comic to post right now, but I thought I’d share some pictures of the mural I painted in my baby’s room. Obviously, the theme is Vikings. Friendly Vikings. I didn’t think raping and pillaging were appropriate for a newborn. So, instead, ...

Things I’ve Cried About While Pregnant

I wrote this comic as a way to cheer myself up. During this pregnancy, I’ve had, what I feel, are frequent bouts of “the blues.” Sometimes I over-think things and get hung up on some pretty heavy stuff, but I’ve realized at other times I cry over the most ridiculous ...

Pregnant? Prepare for Crazy!

Oh, the crazies. They come out of the woodwork once you get a bump. Sadly, I didn’t have to think very hard for this comic. Each panel is based on something that has happened to me in real life. I probably could have made several more panels on this topic, ...

Baby Anatomy

A few weeks ago, I did a comic about what early baby kicks feel like. Later baby kicks feel much more like actual kicks. But their punches feel like kicks, too. And so do…whatever else it is he’s doing in there. Elbows? Knees? I don’t know. I had a sonogram ...

We’re Having a Boy!
