This week’s Dustinland comic speaks for itself. Pretty depressing I guess! Not really a cry for help. More like a substitute for therapy.
Also, my comic updates have not been as regular as they once were. This is why. Just hard to creatively get it up these days, if you will. Well, maybe it’s just a phase.

This week’s Dustinland comic is about how I fight depression in these dark days. I mean, man, it’s getting pretty bad. When those kids were being taken from their parents, I just didn’t know what to do. I remember drawing an extra comic just to deal with it. Staying up late to do something, anything. Now of course the problem hasn’t be solved, but things are so bad, we’re just happy it’s not getting worse.
Anyway, yeah, if you want to look at it rationally, we are PRETTY fucked. I mean, it’s bad. But emotionally, that can really screw you over unless you just accept it in an eastern “life is suffering” sort of way, or… or I don’t know. You laughing at farting bunny comics.

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.
Yeah… I mean, as this week’s Dustinland comic shows, it’s hard to sleep sometimes. Damn brain. Shut up! Shut up, brain! Perhaps some of this is due to my health habits of not working out ever, not meditating, etc… I should do some of that stuff. Also beer, coffee… all the things that make life fun… I dunno. I actually do everything in moderation but sometimes it feels like even that is too much.
Blech. I blame Trump.
This week’s new Dustinland comic is about when you’re in a bad mood and someone is all bubbly and friendly, asking you “HEY WHAT’S UP?!” and you just can’t hide your discontent and you just sort of fake it unconvincingly. Also I was super busy and only had time to draw one frame, so yeah, tah-dah!
