Its cool to think that Matt Groening might scan over a comic i drew.
MATT FUCKING GROENING JUST BOUGHT COPIES OF AS YOU WERE #1 AND #2 FROM OUR TABLE AT THE LA ZINE FEST LAST WEEKEND!!!! No big deal.
I’m not even kidding, hearing this happened was such an honor. Be like Matt Groening and scoop them up for yourself!
There used to be this dry erase board at work in the lab. Sometimes people would write questions and people would either draw or write an answer. This was on of my answers.
I drew a birthday picture for my friend Taylor. She has the same birthday as Abe Lincoln and ex Doobie Brother, Michael Mcdonald. Taylor used to always draw these things called Chomp-Chomps. They are featured on Abe and Mike’s shirts.
Drew a nice little cover for Found Drowned’s cassette demo. And for some reason chose to use a terrible picture of it. Only 40 of these were made. Gary took them on tour with him so maybe you could track one down that way.
You guys knew I was in a band, right?
The 45 second drawing movie thing I did for tonight’s Instant Gratification Film Challenge. It’s a tribute to my friend Crystal.
I really wish people would actually watch these.
This is something I drew for the Murber: Cattle Assassins tour comic zine I made. Circa 2004?
Allison Rae Lahti died on Saturday. I didn’t know her very well at all. I met Allison when her band Bad Ideas played at 1919 in 2003. I thought their cassette “We Don’t Know Yet Don’t Yell At Us” was really good.
She was very tiny and when I saw her and Jim a year or so later in Chattanooga she was wearing borrowed clothes that looked gigantic on her. I believe she was the first person I ever saw with a stick and poke Hickey tattoo.
She was in band called Rock Paper Stupid around 2007.
Allison was a cool person who did cool shit.

Yeah you guys, I spent a whole hour buiilding a sub-rudimentary website for As You Were. Behold my entry-level html skills AND get a sneak-scoop on who’s new and who’s returning for the upcoming third issue (which I maintain is HANDS DOWN the best issue yet - and I’m not just saying that, it’s for real incredible).
Email Mitch a hand shake. (two scoop ice-cream, one scoop hand, your choice of milk.)
