this was gonna be a comic but now it’s a gif! yay.
shout-out & thanks to patreon subscriber kim who says, “How appropriate. You fight like a cow.” I am rubber, you are glue.
it was a vine of a girl dancing at her cat, to carly rae jepsen’s ‘i really like you.’ but i can’t find a link 🙁 if you’ve seen it, feel free to post it in a comment or something!
update: my girlfriend found it! https://vine.co/v/eWggmLLxhp0
shout-out & thanks to patreon subscriber The Bank! you rock!
it’s nutrient-rich crap though. (hey i’m drawing in pencil again!)

for those of you who remember, i’ve been battling an RSI injury for the past year and it forced me to put the comic on hold back in march. it has thoroughly sucked, and i’m still not 100%, but just being able to draw again on a regular basis makes me feel REBOOOORN and full of comicky life.
i think i’ve got a much healthier attitude about it now too. part of the reason i dropped drawing digitally was the infinite potential of undo-redo hell. you can nit all your picks until your brain explodes, and that was part of what led to my injury. plus i just like pencil, man.
anyway, thanks for reading. this is officially the start of volume 2 of smiling ribs. i’ll put out a print version of volume 1 sometime when i can. exciting! fun!! work work work. it feels good.
been feeling it lately. my parents are starting to talk about moving out of my childhood home. all our old stuff will have to move too, and i can’t keep it all. i know i won’t actually miss most of it, but i’ll miss it all a little. that adds up, man!
reminder: smiling ribs updates are currently occasional! i’m working more regularly on my other comic project, blue-eyed haiku.
