Now What: An Adult Activity Book for Boring Tiresome Times

This week’s Dustinland comic is about a new book I made! It’s called Now What: An Adult Activity Book for Boring Tiresome Times, and it’s a funny collection of games, jokes and activities meant to get you through this boring-ass winter! Yes, it’s short. But yes, it’s also cheap. And I am selling it through Blurb to make it as cheap as possible. I still only make $2 a book! If I sold it on Amazon it would have to be $15 for me to make the same profit so I am doing my best to keep costs down. I could actually get it down to $8 but the paper is as thin as toilet paper at that point and it’s just not worth it.

So check it out, give it a whirl, go get yourself a copy today, because for only $9.99, you’ll get more than your money’s worth.

Color Therapy

Despite the feel of this week’s Dustinland comic, I love the whole adult coloring book thing that’s been super hot the last year or so. It’s like monks making those sand tapestries or whatever they’re called. Very eastern. Mindless meditative art is awesome. Hey, that’s one of the things I love about drawing comics. Yes, the first part of it is anything but mindless. But once it’s written and pencilled, the inking and coloring is relaxing. And mindless doodling, that’s even better. Just getting lost in your art… I love that more people are doing it, even if it’s “just” coloring.

But it is funny to see my wife using coloring books more than my kid.
