This, along with the corresponding scheming pose, immediately cracked me up.

This made me very happy.

Sorry that the show left you burnt out (although I'm not surprised). I'm glad you're recapturing your sense of joy, fun, and delight in your own art.

Couldn't have said it better - this comic really has a sense of joy in embracing whatever drives you at the moment and it really puts a smile on my face. Thank you Nate for this small peek into your madgeniusification process :D

“How do I want to spend the last 20 minutes of my life” is basically how every pre-Zoom meeting pep talk goes for me

"i hope these are real words"!

(i'm glad that THESE ones are!)

"how do i want to spend the last twenty minutes of my life"!

(a good eternal question!)

"i'm fine & normal"!

(glad to receive all of this at a daytime hour!)

Hey I’ve got a typewriter collection with like 4-5 typewriters. Lmk if something breaks or some shit and I’d be happy to help.

Also, hell yeah! Be a weird little creecher who gets sudden bursts of inspiration at 2am and creates something so fucking cool it becomes an anomaly in the space-time continuum! Make a character who’s just a paladin that uses ceremonial armor and everything about him says Jim from Accountimg who Fucked Up The Printer and Ruined Everyone’s Data! U go u crazy little gremlin!

Reading these are the highlight of my week 😊

You drawing creepy deep-sea creatures and you finding it cathartic gives me hope that me currently drawing creepy raven's after burning out is OK 👍 I get a real gilt trip for not producing 'real art', like you said about art that is marketable. But in art therapy they say "trust the process" and hopefully you will find this path healing.

I love your deep sea creatures! Your new art style is so choice. Like that comic about being bipolar with the boat? I think about some of the panels a lot, both the meaning and the style
