Our little boy turned one this weekend, which barely seems possible. He's an absolute joy.
I had a great time talking with my old friends Dave Huerbin and Greg Yates on their podcast, Art Talk with G&D. We got into mysticism and abstract art, Jung and lucid dreaming, and all sorts of fun stuff.

While it didn't necessarily fit into the episode, we also had a nice tangential discussion about states of consciousness and making art. For whatever reason, the language gets a little rough toward the end there. This is why we can't go to nice places.
This is a few months old, but it's still pretty adorable.
Did I mention we had a baby?
Leo Martin Kocan joined the world on March 29, 2013. He's the cutest thing ever. Hey, little guy!
Remember this whole thing? Probably not, but you can refresh your memory at the bottom of the post. Either way, I just found the scans of my original pages, so I figured I'd provide a little closure, four years after the fact. If you got a printed copy, cherish it—I don't even have one anymore!
If you're at all interested in learning how to make comics and you're in the New York City area, check out the Cartooning Basics class at the School of Visual Arts. Tom Motley is a great teacher. I went into this with zero drawing ability and came out with three drawing ability. Maybe four. Registration is actually open right now for the upcoming semester, which starts on September 20.
I also dug up the thumbnails I made for the second chapter, so look for that sometime in 2019.
