Welcome!
Jan 23rd 2023
My first full winter back in Massachusetts in 15 years has been thin on snow, so I find myself running out delirious into the merest slush-fall. I hope you are all warm, and with someone, or with yourself. I am thinking about a new t-shirt based on the horse thoughts strip. Stay tuned!

In other news, there's new artwork on the Patreon. If you use Hive Social, look for me @buttercupfest. And please, wherever you are on the internet, if you enjoy my comic, the loveliest thing you can possibly do is leave a link, a social media tag, anything that helps others find their way to Buttercup Festival. Mercy buttercups.

I recently spent a day wandering in the woods, as one is wont to do. As the sun set, the urge came over me to take out my phone and talk about nothing in particular to no one in particular. Would you like to be that no one?

There's a huge willow at a park that my kids love to climb, one of those park trees which seems to know its job is to provide a wealth of horizontal branches for kids to sit on, pretend on, leap from, be lifted into and out of.

I know I plug Patreon regularly, but I wanted to let you know that they've changed their system so you can join any time of the month with no worries about being double billed in the first month. I've made two bonus posts there just in the last week, with process material from this week's color comic, and a collection of recent paintings from my favorite woods.

I have spent my October weekends running around Massachusetts and New Hampshire, enjoying my first New England fall in the better part of two decades, hiking hither and thither ... sometimes with my sketchbook or painting kit in my back pocket.
