(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:
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).
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.
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.

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.
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):
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!
