Casual Encounters

Inspired by various goings-on in the Woo, I wanted to make a comic about Craigslist. "In my backyard naked" and "Wheres ugly women at?" are real ads that I saw. The rest were far too explicit to lift.

This was my first comic of the summer session. It's nice, getting back into the swing of things.

End of the Semester Haikus

lol shading.


I am so ashamed of this guy.

Very Small Comic

This comic is pretty much glorified filler, but it was made to express my terror and hatred of Belton, Texas.

I got this firing line in response. Paul Boston, you show me that other Taco Bell, because I do not believe it exists.

A Most Nefarious Plot

People are petty, that woman looks pregnant, and I'm not good at drawing arrows. That is what I've learned from this.

Leif Erikson Day

You know, even though I didn't spend a lot of time on this one, I'm really, really proud of it. Especially that helmet. Oh yes.

Student Government Editorial Comic

This was a tie-in for the editorial page about the student government scandal from last semester. This is pretty much how things went down. I remember being alarmed by the scandalous phone calls, then enraged at the scandal, then totally apathetic because I realized what a small impact the whole thing actually had on my life.

Also maybe I should stop making sorority girls the butt of all my jokes.

I tried looking up the scandal's article on the Daily Texan's website but it's pretty tough to find anything but pictures of Keshav. I even looked up "student government" and "zest." Oh well.

Another comics dump

Do you ever look back on things you've written in the past with humiliation and shame, thinking "Jesus Christ I was such a little twerp"?

I am feeling a bit of that reading some of the things I wrote for this blog. Anyway, I guess I'm going to take a bit of time posting old stuff and commenting on it.

This is a comic I drew for Ros, my boss at Einstein's. She's about 5'0" even.

God damn, I lose the nerve to talk about these once I post them.

New comics

This semester, I have been promoted to Editor of the Comics Page. lol @ unnecessary capitalization. It's a cool gig, and I am going to do my best to return the Daily Texan's comics page back to the standard of excellence it had in the 90s. OK, maybe excellence might be a bit of hyperbole, but it was definately a ton better than it is now.

Here are some comics I drew so far this semester. One is posted in a previous blog marked "Relationships" so I won't repost it.And here are the advertisements I made to try and get more comics artists.
And I think I'm temporarily done uploading! Eff yes!


I decided to group these two published comics together, because I rail against guys a bit in one, and against girls in the other. Too tired to comment, commencing in posting this stuff. One was published towards the end of last semester, the other was published last Tuesday, respectively.

comics dump 2


I love talking to myself in a false-vain way.

There are in some order. Not any order that accurately reflects these comics' publication, but some sort of order nonetheless.

Comics dump

No dates, nothing other than a huge mess of comics I've done over the course of last semester that I forgot to dumb.

Check out the deviantart or the facebook group, which might be more convenient. Whatever. This blog is so much less shameful to link than a dA page.

Second Grinch comic

I'm going to upload all the backlogged stuff both here and Deviantart this weekend. All of it is already up on the facebook group so go check it out if you are that anxious.

This comic contains drunken, vomiting silhouettes and Gene Ray. What's not to like?

The Grinch

This comic is so horrible, but I promised that I'd keep up with them on the blog so look at me, here I am, doing what I said I'd do.

That's really nice.

Here's the first Grinch comic, anyway. If I could hate it any more it would set fire immediately. I hate working from a script, and the art in this one is shit. Well, after my Italian oral exam I'll have time to plot out the last three of these before Thanksgiving break.

Ahhhh, Thanksgiving break. I am quite excited. Do any of you have exiting plans coming up?

Bad Pun Comic

I didn't feel like coloring this day and I was really busy, so this is all you guys get. :) This idea was suggested to me by my awesome boyfriend Chris but I screwed it up. Whatever. BAD PUN.

Got a moment for the environment?

I hate these guys so much. Also, this one was really small in the DT version. Maybe it's the way I saved it...? Hope not. :(

Classroom Distractions V. 2: Inappropriate thoughts

The process behind this one is as follows:

Me: Hey, Terra, what are three objects that are sexual but utterly terrifying?

Terra: Hmm. Well, there's some kinds of porn about things eating other things.

Me: Whut.

Terra: Yeah, it's really weird.

Me: That would be too hard. What else do you got?

So basically we brainstormed and the result was an iguana, a prosthetic leg, and a bottle of lube. The colored version of this is also here.

The Return of Misfortune Guy

This guy just can't catch a break. Hey, didn't I say I wasn't going to comment on these? Damn it. Whatever.


This one caused a bit of controversy with my friends and so I wrote a huge paragraph about racial diversity at UT. Unfortunately, the internet ate it, and it took my desire to explain any of the comics for the last two weeks. I'm just going to update them anyway, because I'm fairly certain these don't get looked at much.

Here is the version that was published in the paper......and here is the fully colored wallpaper dealibob I promised. Look at that. Absolutely beautiful.

A note about the rapid fires

This one was in response to all of the rapid fires in the Texan that bitch about the comics page. I mean, come on, we're getting paid but we're barely being paid to make an effort. It's the best we can do. If you hate the comics page so much, why not just draw one yourself? Jeez.

Also, that is one awesome-looking giraffe. Look at that shit. That's classy.

Scrap day!

I am going to make a weekly post filled with scraps that didn't make it into the Daily Texan. Sometimes they will be Circumlocution related, but sometimes they won't. I am too lazy to put them on the facebook page but I would prefer to just post them once.

I was honestly hoping this club had something to do with Teddy Roosevelt. I am really unsure as to why.

This one will probably be revised and put in the Texan one of these days. As someone who is not from Houston, it is definately something I can relate to.

Why do I always draw blond guys with huge chins? Maybe he should be a recurring character, Big Huge Blond Chin Guy.

Study Breaks bothers me. It seems like the booze and babes magazine. It pretty much tells us "Hey, you're a college student. Drinking and getting laid is all you should care about. Oh, and football sometimes." My life is about totally different things, so it really doesn't jive with me.

Man, I hope Study Breaks doesn't have a mob that will beat me up.

These two are so awesome. I can't imagine them fighting anyone but if they did it would be some crazy shit. I can't even imagine it.

And that's all I have for now.

Reunion in Aisle Four

I really hated how this comic got the shaft, as far as the Texan comics page goes. It was really massive and it took me a long time to photoshop though, so I'm glad that Devins put it in at all. At least now people can actually read it.

This has happened to me once, but I refuse to give any more info on it because it would be unprofessional and mean. I think that once you get into college you should drop those high school grudges but damn it is hard. Also the "totalllly hang ouuut" girl is not based on an exact person's appearance. It is just some random chick. Do not hate me.

I have a sketch about the more frequent things that happen to me relating to high school, but this one is more of a universal truth. Not everyone morphed from a loserly weeaboo to a slightly less loserly comic book fan.

Freshman Misconceptions

To be fair, I have met very few people like this, but whatever.

Also the guy in the bottom panel is modeled vaguely after someone I know. Let's see if he can spot himself!

Jester Poster Sale

You may notice that this one hasn't been colored in photoshop. Well, no offense to the Texan, but sometimes I am too busy to labor over a comic for two hours, especially for the amount I get paid for these. On one hand I am really glad to be getting paid to work on my life's passion, but on the other hand it takes away from studying, so it had better be worth it. And sometimes it isn't.

For this comic I wanted to find the date that the first Jester Poster Sale took place, but I couldn't. At least, a quick google didn't reveal anything to me.

Jobs for English Majors

I think this is arguably my best work. I'm fairly proud of it. It is a reality of like that I am sad to embrace. Every time I think of my major it leads me to thoughts like WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH MY LIIIIFE and I AM NEVER GOING TO HAVE A JOB.

The Real Reason Science Majors Can't Stress Themselves to Death

A lot of people don't get this one, and I can certainly see why. The joke is that science majors will just re-form after exploding, so they can never really die. Maybe they're like the Highlander. I don't know. There are too many of them for that.

There are far too many panels and the background is weak, but I did get to experiment with brushes in photoshop. The problem with the published version is that it was really, really small. I think that is a problem for a few of my comics.

Elevator Girl

This one was was really badly done. I didn't know it was going into the Texan; it was something I used to apply there. Whatever. The published version looks like shit and I tried to touch it up with MS Paint. That was a really bad idea.


cir·cum·lo·cu·tion [sur-kuhm-loh-kyoo-shuhn] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation –noun
1.a roundabout or indirect way of speaking; the use of more words than necessary to express an idea.
2.a roundabout expression.

I find this to be a word that explains me fairly well, although I am trying to work on that. You can't really use a lot of words to explain things when you're drawing (or rather you shouldn't).

I really want people to like my comic, so I'm working hard to promote it. The Texan comics page gets a lot of unfair flack for not being the most professional comic book page ever, but there are people that work really hard on it.

Man. My brain is moving at half the speed of ass right now so I'm going to stop trying to write a clever introduction and just upload a bunch of comics. Enjoy.
