Well, still no new comics, but here’s a ridiculous music video I made to a mashup of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” with Missy Elliott’s “Work It”!
1. Sorry I haven’t published any new comics lately. I’ve been focusing on multimedia shit.
2. Here’s a short film I made for a college video art class in 2005. It’s pretentious and artsy as fuck, but I still like it. It was supposed to be about unrequited love or some shit (in a really abstract way).
My friends and I shot the footage at an abandoned prison at Fort Ord in Monterey, California. The song used for the soundtrack is Tim Buckley’s “Song to the Siren.”

Thanks! I really appreciate it!
Anonymous asked: Are you still in rehab?
Don says: “No, I’m actually out of rehab now, but my author has been too lazy to finish drawing the comics about how I left.”
jeannetto asked: I'll be at selling my books at the Portland Zine Symposium, too. (See you there.)
Awesome, see ya there!
Anonymous asked: Just curious, I know Don lives of his parents, can you as the author make a living of your comics?
Ha! I wish. I don’t make that much off of my comics. I get a small cut when people order my books off Amazon.com, and I earn a bit more from selling books at conventions. It still isn’t much when you consider the cost of tabling at something like APE (Alternative Press Expo), which is the only convention I’ve tabled at so far (FYI, I’ll be tabling from August 10-11 for the Stumptown Zine Symposium in Portland, OR).
I mostly earn money by doing freelance writing gigs about the Linux operating system.
