Buttercup Festival

Welcome!
February 17th 2020
It's just been one of those weeks, and I don't have a new comic ready. Regular programming will return next week, pinky swear!

And here's something else to distract you from today's lack of a new comic, something I can't let pass without comment. According to Wikipedia, Buttercup Festival first appeared on Feb 17th, 2000 ... twenty years ago today. And I'm forty now, which means that Buttercup Festival has existed for half my life. Not always updating, but always there. Have a look at the instagram account for photographic evidence of what half a lifetime of Buttercup Festival will do to a man.

I've also been posting odd bits of artwork and sketches to instagram and twitter, so even if you're not big into social media you might want to have a look from time to time. You know, if you're interested.

Two recent sketchbook drawings are available as prints!

You can read a poem of mine, Acadia, on Northern New England Review's website, because they're kindly putting it forward for a Puschart Prize. And there is, of course, a guineafowl drawing on the sketchbook page.
