What’s In A Name

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about when people get your name wrong. I used to just get Justin instead of Dustin, but these days, it has gotten weirder.

So…  anyone ever really mangle your name?

Nose To Nose

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about my giant nose. Actually, it’s about my normal nose, but some dude called it giant. Whatevs. I guess it’s a little bigger than average but… well, you can read the comic. I won’t ruin it for you here.

But yeah, nose haters can kiss my ass.

No Thanks

This new Dustinland comic is about how I don’t know how to accept a compliment. Some say it is part of Imposter Syndrome, but I don’t buy that. But who knows! Maybe it is. Either way,  it’s something I’m working on. When someone says something nice, just say thank you! Don’t make it awkward. Shouldn’t be so hard but for some reason my instinct opts toward the awkward.

Can you relate?

Stay Clean

This week’s Dustinland comic is about the cleaning frenzy that goes on before guests arrive. Of course I’m exaggerating a bit, but the general idea is correct. Your day-to-day life at home does not ever live up to the cleanliness that occurs when you host – even just a few friends. There’s always some cleanup in an attempt to generate an image of neatness+. In fact, one of the best things about having people over is that it forces you to clean up. Of course, this can backfire if the hosting leaves the house messier than it was to begin with, due to massive amounts of cooking, eating, and children playing with every toys and art supply they can find. Either way, drinking can help.

I Broke My Hand

Oops. Guess this is as close as I’ll be getting to a comic anytime soon.

Technically it’s a fracture of one of the smaller bones but it definitely doesn’t feel good.

High five (lefty only).

Migraine

In this week’s new Dustinland comic, I pretty much show you what it’s like to have a migraine. Although I did leave out the incredible sensitivity to light. Not the trippy sparkly light they call auras. That I covered. I mean like once the pain starts, you can’t even be in a room with the lights on without cowering like a vampire. I was out in the broad daylight for a few minutes and I really did feel like Nosferatu. It would have been embarrassing if I wasn’t in such agony.

Anyway, I’d prefer not to do that again. Man, do I feel bad for people who deal with this all the time! Brutal. It is NOT a headache. A headache is like a cool breeze compared to this.

Well, if you do deal with migraines and people tell you to “suck it up” or something like that, send them this comic.

Meh

This week’s Dustinland comic is something something meh I dunno.

You know the thing is, I am most energized and inspired in the morning, yet that is when I am least available to be creative, between family life and work. I occasionally have time at night, after a full day of activity, and that’s when I am tired and uninspired and all I want to do is sit on the couch. Such is life I guess, or at least until my kiddo is a teenager who sleeps until 11:00 and never wants to hang out with me. Not that I’m looking forward to that but it will be good for the comic.
