Walk

3 panels. First panel, I sit on a couch, dinosaur looks out window and says 'It's lovely outside! Let's go for a walk!' Second panel, I say, 'Counterpoint...' Third panel, I have flopped backward and am having a nap.

************************

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted a comic, and that’s largely because, well … I’ve been asleep a lot.

It’s just my usual Chronic Fatigue Syndrome fatigue (which comes and goes and will continue to come and go) and it’s actually lifted a lot over the last few weeks compared to how bad it was November/December last year. But, even so, I’m still working on getting back on top of my doing-stuff routine, which includes making comics.

I’m completely fine. I even know exactly what triggered the fatigue to be particularly bad, and it’s nothing to worry about. Still annoying for me, of course, but this is just life with a chronic illness.

Naps

Cartoon me napping on a couch, cat also napping. Text reads: Naps are pretty good. ... that's it. that's the whole comic.

************************

… And it looks like I’ll have plenty of opportunity to have them over the next week, as South Australia (where I live) has gone into hardcore lockdown to crush a covid outbreak. In fact, it’s practically my civil duty to nap right now.

UPDATE: Our lockdown lasted 3 days because it turns out the outbreak wasn’t as bad as they first thought. Oh well. I got a few naps in.

Horror

Comic, 3 panels. Me and partner sit on couch. In panel one, I say 'hey, we should play horror games together this october!' and my partner responds "uh ... I don't love horror, but okay." Panel two, still on couch, room is dark, I am cowering the the fetal position. Partner says 'do you want a go yet?' I say 'nope'. Panel 3. Looks the same as panel 2. My partner says, 'do you want to stop?' I say 'nope'.

Concentration

The Two Writing Modes: panel one has an abandoned desk. I crouch next to my cat, sleeping in a cat bed, and say 'You're just so distracting today!' the cat is clearly pissed I am bothering him. Panel two has me typing furiously at a desk. Meanwhile, a giant dinosaur foot has crashed through the ceiling. Outside, people are running and things are burning. The cat is hiding on my shoulders, tail floofed up. I am oblivious.

*************************

I mean, I’m assuming it’s the beard and one of us isn’t just going bald down there.

I have struggled with this a lot since becoming chronically ill, and even more so since the pandemic started. Sometimes I need the reminder.

Living With A Bookworm #2

First panel: my partner and I sit in front of a screen that says 'a classy Shakespeare adaptation' while my partner says 'You'll tell me what they're saying, right?' and I respond 'Sure. Panel 2: I say: 'The 'dagger' is his penis'. Panel 3: I say, 'The 'sheath' is her vagina.' Panel 4: I say, ''Thrust' as in ... you probably got that one.' Panel 5: my partner says 'but everyone is dying!' and I say ''Die' can mean orgasm'.

*********************************

Everything Shakespeare wrote is a dick joke, a gloriously terrible pun, a sword fight, or a gloriously terrible pun that is also a dick joke taking place during a sword fight. If he had been big on adding stage directions, I’m certain ‘[pelvic thrust for emphasis]’ would be part of the Great Western Literary Tradition.

When I started drawing SKTD I did think things like ‘hey, I wonder if this would look good on a mug?’ but I did not think ‘gosh, what a great design for a device to reduce the spread of the plague!’. But I guess that’s 2020 for you. We’ve just got to adapt.

Also, Patreon. Still a thing I have. As well as social media. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
