I came. I saw. I Con-quered.

Well, I think Comic-con actually conquered me as I’m still trying to stop my brain from spinning inside my skull. Previously, I had only been to Vidcon, CTN, and Wondercon… so SDCC was a whole new beast. A swarming, hot, sweaty, beast. Doesn’t sound very pleasant, but somehow in all the chaos it really was.
It’s the only event where superstars from movies, TV, […]

Turner of the Century…A Movie You Will See Someday

Very happy to announce that today, yes as of 9AM this morning, my brother Nick and I started writing an animated feature for Ghostbot! It’s called TURNER OF THE CENTURY. Expect the movie to be Dick Figures humor wrapped in fantasy with a side-order of adventure. Ghostbot is an AMAZING animation studio in San Francisco so we’re both thrilled to be working […]

What Mischief at the Governor’s Ball?

AUTHOR’S NOTE: When I was in New Orleans, my friend gave me this writing prompt: “What mischief at the governor’s ball?” On a hot Louisiana morning beneath the willows in Louis Armstrong Park, I wrote this short, short story. Enjoy with a sazerac in hand.
Wouldn’t you like to know? Yes, you most certainly would. Well, I’ll tell you, even though […]

Progress Meters!

I’ve been toying with this idea for a good long while and decided to finally implement it: progress meters for works in progress. Since I have writing ADD, I often jump between projects when I’m stuck on one. I usually have two to three going currently from short stories to full novels and screenplays.
Right now my three projects are:
Meet […]

A Hole In The Plans

This chapter ends Part 2 of “The Owl’s Hare” in a way I wasn’t expecting. Already, Owl and Alyla have escaped a fortified castle, survived plunging over the Everfalls (and rapids), escaped a haunted forest and out-magicked a pub full of wizards…and it’s only been 100 pages! This story has been incredibly fun to write and with over 3/4 left to […]

Chick Figures

You asked for it. You got it.

This has been one of the most requested episodes ever—a gender bender. It took us a while to figure the episode out, and it’s still pretty dang confusing to be honest. For the girls, Red is “Scarlet” and Blue is “Lavender”. And for the boys, Pink is “Salmon” and Stacy is “Burgundy.” Wait…or did I […]

The Bard’s Big Show

And now the fun begins. Yes, Owl the Bard has gotten a bit sidetracked on his hunt for the Princess, but it will resume soon…once the wizards have had their fun with him. Most wizards in fantasy stories are wise old men so I liked the idea that these were all scoundrels of every age, gender and species. Perhaps […]

The Owl’s Hare – “The Sorcerer’s Snug”

The Bard + Wizards + Alcohol = Good Times. That’s really all you need to know about this week’s chapter of The Owl’s Hare which takes place in a snug (or pub) run by wizards. Foul, ill-tempered wizards. There be no kindly Gandalfs or Harry Potters here—in this world all wizards are evil. I shouldn’t say anymore, except that the […]

The Owl’s Hare – “Will-o’-the-Wisp”

So far, this has been one of my favorite chapters to write in The Owl’s Hare, and I never saw it coming. I won’t give out any spoilers, but it combines something I love with something I hate. Click here to read about what happens to Owl the Bard this week.

Also, this is how I write this story. The owl does […]

Dick Figures – “Trash God”

I LOVE this episode. Ever since Ed Skudder and I started working on it we knew it was special, but not quite sure why. Probably because the Ant-Leader is basically a Frat Bro (voiced by Mike Nassar, also the voice of Broseph). Goddamn we love making fun of frat-bros.

The core idea was “What if Red was shrunk down to […]
