Fox 1- an Art Post (+ updates)

Sooo, helloooo...I does have the arts hey. They is here today! (Sorry, I've just totally given up on being fit for society). Yes, new art and some updates and stuff. I am honestly not sure who even reads these, but what tha hay at least I'll write it down for myself...

Firstly, a new fox painting! I have named him "Fox 1" (so clever, heh) he is the first in a series.

"Fox 1" Original Cartoon Painting

"Fox 1" is an original acrylic painting on a 5" x 7" canvas panel. Initialed on the front; full title, date, signature on the back, wire hanger on the back as well, or you may frame it as you wish, if you choose to adopt him! In addition to the new art, I have a new SHOP! I've opened an Amazon Handmade shop (check it out--, where I will be listing original art a few times a month, plus exclusive shop items! "Fox 1" is currently listed there (at this link ), along with a few other things. More to come after the holidays...(I am a tad overworked).

So, that is new art and some news. Some other things worth mentioning...uhhhh...crap, I totally had more important stuff to write about.
Oh! eBay update-I will be raising the starting bids on the ACEO prints come January- I currently list them at $.99 (they are HERE ), however blah blah business stuff and something about shipping costs= in January they go up to $2 (which they originally were) but probable free shipping.
hrrmmm, I am considering starting a monthly subscription for the ACEO prints, but I have to do some plotting and finagling before that can happen. Also aiming for sometime in January for that possibility.
Ummm, check out the Zazzle Shop for fun things if you have the time. I think that is about all for now. I hope you are enjoying the Week of Weasels, and your December.

Oh, yes, and ye ol' website:

Cheesus Christ, Emily....

This is essentially how I feel about eating cheese. This is the opposite of how I feel about preparing cheese for the masses to consume.


Five Weasel

Heheheheheheheheheh I love this one.


"I need a second opinion..."

"Can you smell this for me?" The dreaded question when you work in kitchen world. Well, for me it's either that or "Can you open this jar for me, Lady Hulk?" *sigh*


On the Third Day of Weasel, My True Love Weaseled Me...

Christmas songs are better if you replace random words with random animals...or the word "feces" hahahaha...I need a good night's sleep.


A Week of Weasels...

I am doing something a bit different this week...mostly because it was all I could come up with and my brain is currently fried from working too much. Like, more than usual too much. Like "I work at the only restaurant in the only mall with a cinema in it for 20 miles in any direction and it's Star Wars and holiday shopping time" too much. If you see me in person and I am a rather huge bitchface, that is why. Also, go buy my art. Here is the first weasel in "A Week of Weasels"...


Weasel Day 2

Take your vitamins, eat your's cold season and I don't want your germssss ewwwww...

Octopie cartoon art + candy tins!

Octopustoberpie. (OMG, she's lost her damn mind!)
So, I have this new and very weird illustration to share- "Octopie". I am not sure where it came from, but's here, and it is currently up for auction on eBay (link is below the picture):

"Octopie" original illustration on eBay

Technicals: Original pen and ink (and a bit of acrylic paint) on bristol, 8.5" x 11", signed, blah blah all that. Looking for a loving and hilarious home.

In other news, I am trying to add some more fun stuff to my Zazzle Shop...I am in the midst of a candy tin obsession, so there are a bunch of those up (or about to go up, I try to stagger them). The candy tins are awesome because they come in different shapes and sizes, and also because THEY COME WITH CANDY INSIDE THEM!!!!!! :D You can see what I have available for those by clicking HERE. Here is a picture of one with my "Dorkicorn" illustration on it:

And that's all I have to say right now. See you on Thursday for the weekly comic!

An Artist Q&A

(This is not a comic post, this is a "ramble" post)

It's been so long since I've *written* a blog post, I am not sure how to appropriately I'll just start talking.
About a week and a half ago, I received correspondence from Patience Brewster...Patience is an amazingly imaginative, well known illustrator. I first discovered her work about 10 years ago, when I acquired a little day planner with some of her fantasy art as a design motif. Immediately, I fell in love with her work. It's fantasy art, but...there is something so distinctly original and hilarious about her pictures. Something extra special for a weirdo to appreciate.

In essence, Patience has asked me to participate in sharing some stuff about my artist self. This is fitting, as whatever I do tend to share is not so much about my artist self, just all my other selves. So, here are five questions that I have been given to ponder on and answer:

1) As a child, do you recall a significant moment when you felt truly affected or inspired by any particular artwork or artist?
Well, does an obsession with Popeye count? I've always loved cartoons. In my early childhood I also recall a strong fondness for "In a Dark Dark Room" (I believe this particular version was a Scholastic publication, with very intense illustrations) and Stephen Gammell's wicked scary pictures in the Scary Stories books by Alvin Schwartz. Quentin Blake's work in the Roald Dahl books (ALL OF THEM!) Oh! And the art by Rien Poortvliet in the Gnomes book (written by Wil Huygen). Those are the ones that stand out most.

2) As an artist, what do you hope to convey with your work?
Humor. Silliness. Play. Laughing is my favorite thing in all the world, I love doing it, I love other people doing it, I love hearing it, I love causing it. Perhaps I subconsciously try to portray some sort of personal diagram of self acceptance. Life is not all good and sparkly, it can be ugly and pain-filled at times, or it can be any gray area of dangerous/fun/boring/delightful, etc...but man, there's always ALWAYS something to laugh at.

3) What memorable responses have you had to your work?

This was the most difficult of the five questions for me. Every response is a memorable one, honestly, as I don't get tons and tons. I take every sale as a compliment! Actually, here's a list of things that I consider to be huge compliments and/or great big hugs (in no particular order):
Tattoos of my work
commission requests
Repeat sales/ repeat customers
Word of mouth

Of course, I have encountered a low to moderate amount of negative feedback. Honestly, I take most of it as an issue of taste. We all have different cone and rod set ups for our eyeballs, we all have assorted life experiences which sway us in certain ways, we are all doing our own different life-things-and-stuff. I don't take a lot of it personally. I don't take it personally if someone doesn't like waffles, or roses, or rose-flavored waffles. To each their own!

4) What is your dream project?
There are so many. To generalize a bit, I'd love to work REALLY big. Mural big. Billboard big. BIG! A coloring book (somewhat in the works). Illustrating a book, or a board game (does this make me sound obsolete?)

5) What artists, of any medium, do you admire?
Jim Henson and Dr. Seuss - they make me laugh
Edward Gorey and Aubrey Beardsley - I love etchings and black and white line work. They are both bizarre and hilarious as well.
Bill Watterson. Gary Larson. Bill Amend.
Frances Hodgson Burnett. She wrote The Secret Garden. What I admire about her is her sheer love for writing- she was so poor at one time that she could not afford paper to write on, so she saved and used every old scrap- the backs of envelopes, inside of book covers, anything. That is perseverance. That is admirable.
Pretty much anyone that can play an instrument.

I want to take a moment to thank Patience Brewster for encouraging my participation in this Q&A. Imagine an artist that adores Christmas as much (or probably MORE) than I dislike Christmas...That is Patience! She has brought so many of her whimsical illustrations to life as Christmas ornaments, so please take a moment to check those out at this link, perhaps get a big head start on the holiday shopping:
Of course, Patience has her own Artist Q&A blog post, at this link:

I hope all of you who have stuck through this ramble have enjoyed reading! If you have any questions of your own that you'd like to ask me, I do welcome them! You may ask them here in the comments, or you can always send me an email at

Animal Clouds- an Art post

This is an art post, no comic today, I apologize. I haven't been feeling very funny lately, I guess. But I do have this out of control doodle art to show you! "Animal Clouds" is an original cartoon doodle/illustration. It is cute and also slightly unnerving, which makes it one of my favorites :) Measures 9" x 12", archival inks on bristol. This piece is currently up for auction on eBay (click the picture or the link below to see the auction):

"Animal Clouds" original illustration
Hoping to get back into the comics in a more regular fashion, though I have not felt like drawing myself/people, so there might be a lot more animal character comics instead. In the meantime, please feel free to support my art in any way you see fit- sharing, buying, commenting, bringing food to my workspace, things of this nature :D

Rabbit Hole

I would apologize for disappearing, but...I'll just do it again, and again. While my behavior dictates that I would not actually be sincere in apologizing, I really don't think that is the actual case. Regardless, here is a brand new comic, all hand colored and sloppy, just how I art.


Go Buy My Art Or I Will Come Eat All The Food In Your Fridge :)

So I had this weird dream last week that pretty much went like this:

I thought it was strange and hilarious, and so now it is a comic. That is all, continue about your day.

Oh Deer! Art Post

Hello! I have an art to share!
May's illustration is titled "Oh Deer!" I am quite pleased with this piece, if for no other reason than it makes me giggle. Here are a few work in progress pictures for ya...

Work In Progress photos:

"Oh Deer" came from one of those doodles I draw when I don't know I am doodling. Usually those never make it past the scraps of paper I draw them on, but this one impressed me enough to "put it on fancy art paper". It measures 8.5" x 11", and is created in Prisamcolor and Sakura micron pens. Also, a few washes of strong black tea to give it that extra caffeine edge. (Kidding, I just wanted a nice tan base, the white paper was too overwhelming for a forest piece).

So, this illustration is currently up for auction HERE on eBay (or click the finished photo below):

"Oh Deer!" original cartoon illustration

I should have ACEO prints of "Oh Deer" in a few weeks or so.


Other art stuff currently happening: I have a small assortment of limited edition, hand embellished 5" x 7" prints available through my WEBSHOP- only five prints of each image, ever!! Check them out HERE! Also, "Harpies with Sharpies" ACEOs are now available through the shop HERE!

PS- Don't forget to come back for tomorrow's comic!! :D

Harpies with Sharpies (and a little clown)

Slacking on the comics, which seems to be the norm of late...just have not felt all that funny. I do, however, have a brand new illustration- "Harpies with Sharpies", and a cute little clown ACEO original as well!

"Harpies with Sharpies": I like to rhyme things, it brings me endless amusement. It is amazing to me that something as simple as two words could produce enough inspiration for me to create a whole picture, with colors and everything! :0 I like that I got to draw something mythical and something modern in one rhyme. I like that I got to draw some boobs. I like that no Sharpies were injured in the making of this illustration. I like that other than for visual reference, I did not actually USE a single Sharpie to draw this. Geeze, the dork is strong with me today.

These lovely feathered ladies are an original pen and ink (Prismacolor and sakura) illustration, 8.5" x 11", on bristol; signed and stuff. Currently up for auction on eBay at the link below the picture:

Annnnd, I have a clown ACEO up for auction as well..."Clown #1"- auction is at the link:

Probably keeping this one for my personal collection if it does not go at auction this round. Fair warning.

Now...I'm going to go brainstorm some comics that may or may not be good enough to make it past chicken scratches in my sketch book...


Don't forget that I have a website with a shoppppp!!!

Yelling in the Woods- an art post

Ahoy hoy...hoy hoy hoy...

Anyway...This is an art post. If you were looking for comics, you have to wait until Thursday. Or go browse all the old (and still hilarious) comics on the blog. February's large cartoon painting is a remake of a tiny illustration I made a few years ago- "Yelling in the Woods". I loved the title so I am keeping it the same for this piece.
Two lowbrow bunnies, yelling in a candy-colored forest. Yes, I have heard the shrieks of a rabbit before. I have a cat. No, they are not cute or adorable noises. They are horrifying and not at all something candy-colored forests should have happening in them. But just pretend like this is a make believe cartoon land (because it is) and imagine that these particular bunnies are making the kind of cute yelling noises that we all wish they would.
So, here is a picture of "Yelling in the Woods", and below that is the link to the eBay auction :) Should the auction end with nary a bid (as they often tend to do), I will be housing this piece in my etsy shop ;)

"Yelling in the Woods" original cartoon rabbit painting auction
In other art-related news, I have TWO new ACEO card prints that have just been released- "High Top Fade" and "Water Wings". They are both available for purchase HERE on eBay or HERE through my website See pictures? See pictures:

Okay. That's enough art stuff for one day. I will be back later in the week with a new comic. Thank you for looking. Seriously. If you are looking, you are awesome. If you want to TELL me you are looking, you are EVEN more awesome. Seriously. It's not like I know if you are or not. Unless you tell me. xo! Em

Water Wings- an Art post

Art time, y'allssss!!

So, I know that the focus of this blog is my comic strip, but the comic strip does not actually bring in any income (that's right, ZERO income, I simply do it for the love of making fun of things). Therefore, I am being forced by my boss-lady (her name is the same as mine!) to post a write up about each new piece of art that I create. So, here is 2015's very first dorkling/zombietoes original creation- "Water Wings"!

Click here to see the auction/read the blurb/view more pics/make a bid(?)

"Water Wings" is a strange piece, if only that it took me ten seconds to come up with the concept, and four months to turn it into a painting. The most hilarious part of this whole process (to me, anyway) is that this painting looks 100% NOTHING like the idea that it originated from. There were moments where all I wanted was to paint over it and start it all over...but I'd get halfway through whitewashing the shit, and then start a whole new layer...before the last one was even fully covered. Each layer was nowhere near what I wanted, so I kind of gave up on creating the original concept art on this canvas, and just let this painting happen. It's hard being such a control freak half the time, and a flighty artist the other half. It's constant self compromise. This explains my moody nature, to a point, but I digress... I am confident that someday I will create the piece that this one was meant to be. That day, however, is not today, so I hope you enjoy this bizarrely cute pirate ship bird instead :)

And just so you know, I've already ordered ACEO prints of this piece to be listed on eBay and my fancy schmancy website shop ;) Larger prints and posters will also be available shortly.

(And also just so you know, sharing links is just as awesome and helpful as making an art purchase. Plus, it's free to do, makes me smile, and I will count that as your good deed for any day you feel like good-deeding some dork such as myself.)

Don't forget to come back on Thursday for a new comic!! :D
