Hello, Good-bye

We're more than half-way through 2016. Maybe my head will stop spinning by the time November does its fly-by.

It’s a little rough due to lack of Photoshop, and the fact that I had to put it up when given the chance, because June will be totally gone before we know it.

Ypres! A Mouse: Dropping in for Tea

Zeppelins were used to carry out bombing missions across Europe, including Britain.  The physical damage they caused was probably not as great as their psychological impact--bringing the war to the doorsteps of people far from the front.

Time is Running Away…

Sketched this in five minutes, took a photo with my phone, and uploaded it.  Because…you can probably guess.

Shiiiiiiiiiny

shiny_WMI sketched this comic a while ago, but since my brother got engaged last weekend (hooray!), I thought it would be a timely post.

Diamonds can be very distra—-oOOOOooo, shiny!

Ypres! A Mouse: Victorian England

The theme for this comic is taken from one of the papers my class wrote for Mayterm.  I wish my professor had let me defend my thesis in comics instead.  That would have been much more fun–for both of us, I’m sure.  On the other hand, this comic gave me so much trouble, it probably would have been just as much work as the paper.

Fun but useless fact:  the top three panels are all based on portraits of Queen Victoria.

Cowering Brain

I contracted senioritis in my junior year of college, so by the time I was actually getting ready to graduate, it was at a pretty advanced stage.  Writing papers was like pulling teeth, and writing my senior capstone paper was the worst.  I didn’t even have a thesis until about two weeks before the first draft was due, and most of it was written over my week-long Easter break.  My topic was “English domestic civilian propaganda posters during the Second World War” (your line: “Wow.  That’s specific.”).  By the end of the semester I was having nightmares about the Blitz and Nazis, and was very ready to be done with the whole thing.  It was a relief to finally turn the first draft in, even if it wasn’t all over quite yet.

And of course, this all coincided with the outbreak of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” spin-offs.
