Two particularly stand-out photos from last night’s signing at Keith’s Comics Mockingbird in Dallas, Texas. Featuring two Valkyries and their sketch requests!

An exercise for my tablet. Drew this while Fox News played in the background. Felt good.

I won’t spend more than $10 on lunch, but I’ll pay more than my rent for a painful experience I in no way whatsoever require, sure!

People keep sending me links about how CrossFit is going to kill me, and it drives me nuts.

I’ve been going to the gym here in town for about 4 months now, and it’s pretty much changed my life. I’ve never been in shape, ever, and today I rowed 1,000 meters, did 50 thrusters and 30 pull-ups. I’m still struggling through and scaling down my workouts, but it’s done incredible things for both my physical and mental well-being. I almost have abs! I have the tiniest hints of abs! It is really cool, for someone who has never been able to climb a flight of stairs without getting winded.

The thing I love about it most, though, is the community. My CF gym is more than 50% women, and I never feel uncomfortable. Everyone encourages each other, cheers for each other, gives out high-fives. There are always cute dogs hanging out. People I don’t know keep coming up to introduce themselves and help me out, or say hello. I don’t feel creeped on (although I can’t help staring at some of the buts during squats, because good lord). People call it a cult, I guess, but it’s the kind of cult I can get into…

All of the things above happened recently. It makes me happy to find this incredibly supportive community of people who like lifting really heavy stuff. The genuine excitement every time someone sets a new personal record or finishes a workout in record time - it’s infectious.

I love it.

My bud Angelina has been having a bad month, and I wanted to remind her just how magical she is. Another tablet warmup/test. I could draw her hair for days.

Half-hour doodles on the tablet help try & keep me sharp! Baby steps there, too.
New 5 rep max! Today’s WOD ripped up my hands, and it was so good.
Working on my ability to literally pick up babes

It’s funny… I chickened out after I drew & posted this, so I deleted it, but it was too late - it had already started working its way around tumblr!
So here it is, for posterity. I am a pervert.
That is a pretty great looking vibrator, though, on the right. I’m proud of that.
