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.

The Cycle

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.

Just Fine

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!

Two comics for the new year

I drew two comics for the new year.

A positive one. 

A negative one. 

Which did you click on first?

Happy Holidays: 2017 Style

This new Dustinland comic pretty much says it all. It is a really miserable time for a majority of Americans. Although a very vocal minority is super happy right now, and I will say it right here: Just wait for the gloating comments on this strip. I predict they will either simply revel in “look how the liberals are freaking out” or perhaps voice some sort of sad, patronizing “the liberals are now delusional and we should pity them” thing. Just watch — it is so predictable, it’s really sad and scary. I have to admit, the right wing propaganda machine we are witnessing right now is incredibly effective to the point of sci-fi brainwashing. It may be undoable. I mean, we’re in 1984 territory right now, with truth and fact no longer agreed upon. 2 + 2 =5. That’s our future. Hell, that’s our present. Fun times everyone. Drink up. Happy holidays.

The Straggle

I don’t know what to say about this week’s Dustinland comic, but I do like how weird it gets at the end. Well, not weird, but let’s say I think it doubles down nicely on the concept of the strip.

From The Bottom Of My Heart

This latest Dustinland comic will probably offend some people but oh well. At this point, Dustinland is a non-profit venture. I don’t make money off it, and my livelihood does not depend upon it. So I can do with it whatever I want, and at this point, I feel like venting. Perhaps you agree with me, perhaps you don’t. Either way, it’s hard to argue with this one fact: I hate this election more than any I have ever been witness to. It is awful and depressing, and winning is losing to some degree in either situation. That’s how I feel, and that sucks — for me.

It will probably suck for you too whether you know it or not, and that’s sad. Hey, maybe not. Maybe everything will turn out just fine. I would love that. I would love to be wrong. Because unlike most people these days, I’d rather be happy than right.
