    Love is in the Air.

    The thrilling conclusion, kinda! More characters, more questions, and more lovesick drama with a mix o’ humour!

    I really enjoyed drawing this comic, although inking everything was a bitch — especially when my hand and arm were a little shakey after drinking a lot of caffeine (damn your delicious addictiveness, Full Throttle!). The guns, in particular, were really fun to draw just because drawing firearms asserts my masculine and violent side.

    Other small details:

  • The boarded up hole in the guys’ apartment is a result of a giant, toaster-headed robot breaking through the wall.
  • The “Doran” sound in the fourth panel is a tribute to fellow cartoonist, Pat Doran.
  • Both Kyle and reincarnated ZCC are visible in Chris’s photo, indicating that Chris and Lizzy have retained their friendship after “The Rules of Attraction” Storyline (in which Lizzy hardly makes an appearance after its conclusion).
  • There is a Broken Social Scene poster on Chris’s wall. I am seeing them tomorrow, and I am very excited.
  • I just started watching “Veronica Mars.” Damn you Christina and Shane!
  • Though I do want to slowly ease myself out of the usual college humor of my older comics, it’s obvious that all events still take place at my University, U of I.
  • Random, non-linear comics starting Friday (minus Randy of course), so stay tuned!

    Plan B.

    Here’s a word of advice: never underestimate small, cute creatures with bows on their heads; they may be packing a rocket launcher.

    Friday is the semi-spectacular conclusion to the Oakley Cupid/”Love is in the Air” storyline, which will probably raise more questions than a resolution.

    I Saw The Sign (Or Pie).

    Coincidentally, as I was drawing this comic, there was a History Channel documentary on Hell and Satan. I believe I saw a clip of Dave Grohl as the devil on there.

    In other news, go watch The Departed. If Martin Scorsese doesn’t win an Oscar this year, then the Academy can suck a fuck.

    …but how do you suck a fuck…?

    FUCK ALL Y’ALL BLOGS!

    I’LL UPDATE WHENVEVER I WANT — which, luckily for you, is today. I’m continuing the whole “Oakley Cupid Introduction” story arc, starting with how Oakley lost his eye.

    So what have I been doing during my unexpected absence? The usual, you know… drugs, sex, and marauding the streets with crowbars. I’ve also resumed working on the first official Sausage-Fest book, “Whiskey and Pills,” after my friend Allan kept asking me about it. It will definitely come out this late summer/fall since I have finally gathered all the comics I needed to include (for instance, the “Rules of Attraction” storyline). I’ve also decided to rework some of the material, like the cover and the written parts.

    I’ve also drawn/pressed 7, 1-inch Sausage-Fest buttons. Now you can be stylish AND funny!

    Once I get the store all set up, you can buy them for US$1.00 each or US$5.00 for all seven. More goodies, surprises, and news within the next following days, and I promise you, more art and comics!

    Just Us Rabbits.


    While writing the script for this comic, I realized that Nigel and Randy do look like rabbit heads when they’re upside down.

    Did anyone spot the Neil Diamond reference?

    And for a small treat, check out the 5 (of 6) promos I’ve created for the site!

    All’s Well That Ends Well.


    As you can see, unlike Jeffro, Caitlin can take a punch or two. She’s virtually unharmed after this fight!

    She’s evil and manipulative, and her intentions remain a mystery to everyone. Heck, even me, her creator!

    Caitlin lights up a cigarette and, as Chris and a wounded Jeffro watch, walks towards the morning sun. A fitting ending, I feel, for what has been a really long and interesting story…

    Every Kiss Begins with *Yurk*!


    Let’s ruin a beautiful moment.

    Call it karma for Chris setting Lizzy on fire in the “Frat Party” storyline. And honestly, if this ever happened to you, do tell!

    Meet My New Boyfriend.


    Oy! Sorry for the delay. I was swamped with graphic design work yesterday, not to mention that it was also my 23rd birthday.

    Jeffro and Caitlin are an even match for each other — at least when it comes to fighting. But, according to the first panel, where does one necessarily find a wrench and a hunting knife in a bar?

    On the other hand, Caitlin and Kyle the Duck are a perfect pair: both are moderately sinister and both like to wear black.

    Speaking of fashion, I have placed an order to the good people at PureButtons.com for 100 Nigel and Randy 1″ pins. These two are new designs apart from what I had drawn a year ago, so whoever owns the old Nigel and Randy buttons (Pat Doran, I’m looking at your general direction) you may wanna get a hold of these:
