First issue of Shroom Raider!

Hey there! It’s been awhile since my last post, but I’ve recently completed some new work – I’m trying my hand at comics!

I think comics are where it’s at in terms of storytelling.  What better way to tell a meaningful story than through semiotic mediums – or comics! Comics are unique because they are like languages –  they are systems of signs the reader must interpret to understand what the author intends to communicate (just think of any time the sequence of panels on a page threw off your understanding because you read the panels’ speech/narrative bubbles in a different order than the author intended).

Above is page 16 from issue 1 of Shroom Raider – only one box of narrative here, not confusing at all heh 🙂 you can click through to the *entire* first issue of Shroom Raider, where we are introduced to our mushroom-foraging citizen detective, Amanita Jones (named after Amanita muscaria).

Let me know what you think in the comments! We’ll be seeing Amanita again soon enough; I just finished a beat sheet for a new comic she’s featured in – exciting! See you all next time!

Support The 1%.

There’s a minority in America. A threatened minority. And they may just be the most important minority of all.

That minority is of course, The 1%. Those noble Americans who have struggled day and night to hoard their God-given blessings of wealth. They truly deserve all that they have.

The top 1% of us now own 50% of the world’s wealth. But we still lack basic necessities. Many are unable to find parking to accommodate their yachts. Others are discriminated against when buying shuttle fare to the International Space Station. Saddest of all, some can’t even find food, and will be forced to have barbeques without white rhino meat.

For us Real Americans, we know all wealth belongs to the 1%. We can each do our part. Watching cable news, buying new phones, and voting Republican will make…
