This week at the Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop: a day early? Yes, indeed. In time for your Halloween happenings is a vampire who is just... over it, you know? I mean... really.

Once again, over at the Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop: Some of the many odd deities (I swear these are all going somewhere) in the Huge Suit universe. A bodiless god of skirmishes, a spirits that occasionally pop the perfect bag of popcorn... A new pantheon for the unambitious.
This week at the Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop: shirt one of two for this week, prior to next week's announcement of a new project (that I could announce this week, but why spoil the anticipation?). Here we see the typical family portrait. Mom, Dad, awkward hair, floating bean-shaped furry beast , oddly glowing. Ah, memories.

This week at the Forlorn Funnies Shirt Shop: the opposing deity, mythological beast, or short order cook to the dripping and previously-shirted Murp, Prum arrives be-boiled and ready to confuse.
Next week: to make up for lost time... two shirts! Prepare for more weird gods, life's larger questions asked.

A couple of upcoming group events: the first is "illust_ratio 3" in Rüsselsheim, Germany. Illust_ratio a show of illustrators and cartoonists (among them the late great Heinz Edelmann of "The Yellow Submarine" fame) from the pages of the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung. I won't be in attendance, but it sounds like a great show if you're in the area and able to make it. The show runs from October 23rd to November 20th. Unless my German is even worse than I think it is (and I think it's really bad), the opening is on October 22nd. Visit their site for more information.
The second event, where I will be signing or whatever we deem acceptable behavior, is at Quimby's in Chicago on November 5th. Julia Rothman, Jenny Volvovski, Matt Lamothe, Lauren Nassef, Isaac Tobin, Lilli Carre, Anders Nilsen and myself will be at that venerable shop to do our scratchings in The Exquisite Book, a collection of 100 artists participating in an exquisite corpse. The book, published by Chronicle, is out now. So pick up a copy and head over to Quimby's on the 5th of November. See you there.
Here I am, making good on the promise of the last post: back to posting I go.
Above is the second installment of The Late Live Show at Second City in Chicago. The audio is a bit dodgy in places, but you can heat me discuss the origins of my comics as a cum-rag, debate the muse of gay mummies, and perform rather poorly in a game of "Win, Lose, or Draw." I take the stage around the twenty minute mark, but roughly half the references I make are about bits from earlier in the show, so I wouldn't recommend skipping it (and I'd recommend watching it mainly because it's twenty minutes of solid comedy from a bunch of talented young comedians).
Thanks to hosts C.J. Toledano and Joe Kwaczala for having me on. A good time was had by all. Or at least by me.
Several weeks without so much as a shirt, a post, or even a postcard. Easily 2.72 of you might be asking, "What happened to that guy?" Alright, 1.6, let's be fair.
But to answer the tens of people asking: I was busy doing something involved in the picture above and subsequently moving our home and my studio out to Evanston, Illinois (one of the most verdant and agreeable places I've called home since moving from Ohio farming country).
Posts, shirts, and more will be on the way shortly. I haven't died (despite some people's views of matrimony) and neither has the blog.
