Looking Up

This comic is based on actual events. My favorite time of year is when I can lie under the ash tree in my backyard without getting swarmed by mosquitos. Sometimes I take a nap. Sometimes I just stare up at the sky. Usually it inspires a comic. I may have stolen the "gold coins" metaphor from Pablo Neruda. If so, it was entirely intentional.

How to Finish

 This comic was inspired by Jon Acuff's new book Finish. Thanks to Jon for the collaboration - you can get this poster on his book tour!

As a recovering perfectionist, I was thrilled when author Jon Acuff asked me to draw a poster for his new book Finish. Visit Jon on his book tour to get a poster, or find it at my shop.

Lately I've been reading poetry by Mary Oliver, Ted Kooser, and Pablo Neruda. It's like looking at the ordinary world through a lens that gives common things extraordinary brilliance. This comic is my attempt to capture that feeling.
