It’s #haikusaturday. I have a new full-time job. I love the organization but working back in an office full-time (when I used to work flexible hours from home) is really taking its toll. This is how I feel.
Another Haiku for #haikusaturday. I’m on a weekend get-a-way in Nanoose Bay. As I look out the window of our Airbnb, I notice an incredibly tall lone tree towering above everything. I feel like it’s reaching beyond, for something humans will never understand.
In this comic strip, Bob-o-lob’s friend Cornelius the Caterpillar asks Bob-o-lob why he is magic.
What makes you magic?
After joining Twitter, I learned that there is a hashtag for #haikusaturday. I had never written a haiku before. This was my first attempt. I was (sadly) inspired by the smokey air here in Vancouver. So many forest fires right now.
Welcome to my first attempt at a comic strip.
Growing up I loved the Garfield comic strips. One of the first characters that I ever came up with was Bob-o-lob the Magic Snail. He came to me during on of Noel Fielding’s Art Club sessions during COVID.
Wiggly Squiggle is a story of a squiggle that just doesn’t believe they are ‘enough’. Wiggly tries to fit themselves into other popular shapes, merely trying to “fit in” but nothing feels right.
After many attempts, Wiggly takes some time to think about the ways in which they are pretty awesome and finally starts believing in themselves.
I was inspired to write this strange little poem after taking a drawing tutorial through the Bardot Brush website. In this particular tutorial, artist Lisa Bardot teaches the viewer how to create a screen print effect illustration using the drawing app Procreate. This sad-looking cat was the subject of the tutorial. Afterwards, this rhyme came into my head. It’s really not great but I just felt the need to get it out of my head onto paper.
This short was inspired by Marion Keye’s 4-weeks course “So You Want to Write a Novel” that she taught via Instagram in early 2021. Her first writing prompt was “The doughnuts failed to de-escalate the situation”. We had to write 500 words starting with this phrase. Johnny and the Alien was my first attempt. Enjoy!
