Personality research study – call for participants!

(A) The next Don Depresso comic book is becoming quite the project. ETA is end of summer. Here’s a preview of the cover design: Don Depresso, Volume III: DD-NOS (draft of cover design)
The title "DD-NOS" is a reference to the diagnostic label “Not Otherwise Specified (NOS),” often tacked onto the end of uncertain and atypical diagnostic labels (e.g., PDD-NOS is Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Not Otherwise Specified). And speaking of diagnostic labels…

(B) I’m including a lot of my writing on social constructions of mental health and personality in this book. Also trying to run a small, anecdotal study on personality trait correlations, and I need research participants!

All you have to do is take personality tests online and send me your data through this web survey that I laboriously authored (knowing nothing about statistics).
3D Spectral Cluster(fuck) Personality Theory Research Pool (click to go to questionnaire) For more details and discussion on my research, join the 3D Spectral Cluster(fuck) Personality Theory Research Pool group on Facebook.

(C) Here is an example graph of Myers-Briggs type data I’ve already collected. As you can see, my study desperately needs more participants.

Master’s degree in Don Depresso studies

I’m publishing a new Don Depresso comic book for my technical writing graduate portfolio, which is due in less than two weeks!

This adventure will either be awesome or horrible. Right now it’s awesome because I have hope that I’ll put together the best volume yet.

#569: Don Depresso Meets Heartbroken Hads
Non-disclaimer: The real Heartbroken Hads forbade me from prefacing this comic with any disclaimers about the art not being perfect, so I’m totally not gonna… Oh, wait.

It’s been a while.

This is yet another boring update about how Don and I are not dead, etc. My computer was broken for about a month, during which I was too preoccupied with some ridiculous and petty interpersonal bullshit (about which I’ll remain vague on public forums) to prioritize fixing my computer and/or doing comics.

But the good news is that I have a shit-ton of material from all the time I’ve spent not making new comics! Now I just need to find the time to do them.

Exciting new things coming soon!

Just wanna let you guys know that Don Depresso is still alive (I was about to say “alive and well” but realized that phrase doesn’t really apply to Don). I’m working hard on building the new website rather than doing new comics right now, but the comics will be back soon!

As for the new website, it’s still a mess, but it’s coming along. I expect to release the URL to the public by next week. Here’s another sneak preview (I totally changed the theme since the last screenshot I posted):

New Don Depresso website in progress (screenshot)

As you can see, some of the code is all wonky and needs to be fixed before I can officially start using the new site.

Oh, and I’m also gonna release an interactive Don Depresso crossword puzzle along with the new site! Stay tuned!

New Don Depresso website in progress!

That’s why I haven’t published any new comics lately. I’m not gonna give you the URL of the new site just yet because it’s still under construction, but the picture shows what it looks like so far.

I’ll probably keep updating this Tumblr blog after the new site is up, but I will focus more on the new site. My main motivation is to gain more control over the site’s design and content than Tumblr currently gives me with this site, so I’m moving to Wordpress.

#566: Sam Dumps Ella
Sometimes I worry about pushing away new readers when I make comics that refer to Don Depresso’s back story. So, if you’re a new reader and you’re curious, check out:More comic strips about Ella the Ex

#565: Intimate Relationships
Intimate Relationships by Rowland S. Miller is actually a really interesting and thought-provoking psychology textbook. As the previous link will tell you, this book is prohibitively expensive for the average person who reads this blog, but I found a free scan of it here (file not hosted by me). Alternatively, you can download the PDF from here.
