Here are some pages from a short comic I thumbnailed out a few years ago, and just recently realized I would never finish. I was an exchange student in Japan in highschool, and I was on the school's kayak team - this story is from the point of view of one of my male teammates, and it's a male exchange student instead of me. It was a fun idea - partially because I was close with my girl teammates, whereas my male teammates were complete enigmas - but without a good enough story behind it. I still like the pictures of rowing. I can still remember the weight of the water on my paddle.

My friend Jeff Tobias is part of a band called Pegasuses-XL, and their latest album Psychic Entourage is out today and available on iTunes. You may recognize the album art - it's an image of mine. The thing is about this album: it is extremely good. I love it and have listened to it a hundred times and feel a pang that my art doesn't do it justice. It's big, and hard, and sad, and thrilling, and excellent. Plus it rocks out. Check it.
