At least I think that's what she said.

If you’re curious the position, I bet Rossmom will post it in the comments.

I have plenty of time to look, since now I have to walk everywhere.

It’s true, my bike was stolen.

Sure, there’s being out the cost of the bike. But the real sting is knowing that someone stole something important from you. That hurts.

Now my bike is off somewhere, (hopefully) getting ridden by someone. I’m sure they don’t appreciate all the little details. The new pedals that I picked out which are a solid piece of metal (and supposed to last much longer). The new spokes I put on the wheels. The scratches on the frame from locking it to parking signs. The new handlebars that made getting up hills much more comfortable. The bike seat that a friend gave me when my old one got infested with ants (yep, really). You get the idea.

So if you ever liked the bike comics I’ve put on this site, that means you liked my bike too. Because every time there was a black icon representing a bicycle, it was Chester, my 2010 Jamis Coda Comp, seen here (this is what I call “Georgetown Parking” because the only place to lock up in Georgetown in Washington, DC is onto trash cans).

UPDATE: I’ve had a few people posting to “keep on the lookout for the bike” and link to this post, so here’s a little more info:

  • 2010 Jamis Coda Comp
  • Had a “City Bikes” sticker on it (was bought at City Bikes)
  • Note the Oury black rubber handlebars
  • There was a lot of scratches on the top bar of the bike from locking it to various surfaces
  • The U-lock mount was on the top bar, which wore down the paint. Even if that’s been detached, there is probably a lot of wear to the paint/frame in that spot (near the seat post on the top bar)
  • From this photo, I changed out the pedals to black ones with no toe clips

UPDATE 2: Big update. The bike has turned up, but isn’t mine again yet. It’s locked up outside near my work/office (remember, I lost it at my home 1.5 miles away from work). There’s been 2 rounds of cops and some scrambling to find registration. Read the whole ordeal here:

And by all that I mean oh god it's happening again.

Our third and final installment in DUCK WEEK. I hope you guys enjoyed our little duck friend.

Why all the ducks this week? At Connecticon a few weeks ago, I promised people in attendance more ducks on my website. I’m happy with the duck I designed (that’s a custom duck, dammit) and I’m sure he’ll pop up again when the time is right. I’ll try and tell the story in a video soon, but there’s not much more to it than that.

Why the sad duck? Someone in my family is going through a lot of mental health issues. So you all get Kenneth, the Overly Anxious Duck. He’s no Jimmy the Murderdog, but he gets by. Oh, Ken. I hope you get better soon.

By the way, anyone else think of The Long Kiss Goodnight when they hear about ducks? It’s a great movie. You should watch it.

If that doesn't work, JOIN THE BAND.

This is how it felt to see Ellie Goulding with my girlfriend and be only 5’6″. The top of her head looked lovely.

I’ve been trying to update more! It feels good. You guys liking the updates?

Note the subtle typography joke.

This one took all day to get right.

Happy new year, one and all! I’m going to try to be updating more in the new year with some updates to the site as well. In the meantime, enjoy the new comic.

For those of you going to Magfest this weekend, come see Super Art Fight on Saturday in Panel Room 3!

The winter struggle is real.

This comic is an actual conversation (monologue?) from Kristen. She’s from the south and thinks anything colder than 50 degrees Fahrenheit is the worst thing that’s ever happened. Then I got to the office the next day and Joanna (from the South as well) was dressed for the arctic and we were indoors. So I’m sensing a trend.

Is this like anyone you know?

Meanwhile, I’m sure you guys are wondering what’s happened to updating and the comic and the Kickstarter. In short, my day job has taken over many of my nights, which has thrown off the Kickstarter and with it updating the comic. My life’s a bit out of balance, and I’m working on bringing it back into balance and back to updating. I’m not disappearing and I’m not going anywhere. Just be patient, I’m working on it.

Thanks, everyone!

Who are you again?

Happened.

What’s your costume? Or just what you’re wearing anyway?

They were Michael Bracco's ties.

If you’re wondering which shirt this woman is talking about, it’s this one. Also, this has happened 13 times in the last day.

At Connecticon

I’m at Connecticon all this weekend in the Online Media Guests area (OMG) with the rest of the Super Art Fight crew. Just come to Exhibit Hall B and look for this table:

Be sure to come by and say hi. High fives are free.

Also, we have two Super Art Fight shows this weekend. The first already happened and went well (I think) and the second is Saturday at 5pm in MAIN EVENTS. There will be a t-shirt cannon.

If you’re not at Connecticon, follow our Facebook page for The System, I’ll be posting any sketches I do there all day. I already did one of me as Super Mario 3’s cover. That’s right. I drew things.

The Kickstarter

It’s happening. In a big way! Unfortunately I didn’t get to finish the video before the con, but you’ll see it on the site in the next week. It’s my way of saying “Happy Five Year Anniversary, Systemics!” It’s also my way of saying “buy my book!”
