"In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it."—Michelangelo
"You want me to draw you as what?" -Chris Gugliotti
Sometimes I ask Chris to draw strange things for me. You will be seeing this statue as part of a logo in the near future.
chiefsfan71308 asked: Why do you need support to do the comics? Just curious. Is it a hobby or something you do for profit?
My primary goal is to make people happy. I promise that creating smiles is more important to me than any amount of money.
However, I feel that what I do has value and I need to pay my employees and make a living. That’s why I have ads, that’s why I sell t-shirts (which will be restocked soon), that’s why I have paypal donations, and a wishlist. A large portion of the money I earn I put right back into the site in the hopes I can make it even better.
Beyond that, the comics require art. I do not believe in “free” artwork. By posting the comics on Medium.com I am able to fairly compensate Chris for his amazing work. It can be a challenge to get my audience to go somewhere else to see my content, but that is what I have to do to make this work.
All of the comics and my original work will be posted on my tumblr a week later and everyone is free to view them here if that is easier.
But if you want to help support Chris, Gab, Otis, and myself… you can view the posts on my Medium.com page.
kamiweed asked: How's your hole?
The nurse just left and said my hole is doing very well!
I told her my hole started to itch and she was like, “That’s great!” and I was like, “That’s one way to look at it.” It is itchy and owwy and apparently that means it is healing well even though I want to rub my hole on a tree like a bear.
I’m going to link to the hole for those who haven’t seen it. It is super gross and if you are even a little bit squeamish I do not recommend looking at the hole.
That said, the hole is large and glorious. It is deep and wide. Small things can be stored within. If you would like to see a giant hole in my back, in all its glory, you can click on this link.
Anonymous asked: Do you ever feel like you're just garnering sympathy by talking about your health problems. I am in and out of hospital constantly, very unwell and having all sorts of gory procedures and surgeries, but I'd feel very self-conscious posting about it where hundreds of people would see it, even in an ostensibly 'funny' way. I don't think you're as profound, humble and wise as you make out to be, sorry! It all seems a little transparent.
Transparency is my goal, actually.
I have no interest in pity. Sympathy is fine, but I am not seeking it.
This blog is about my life, my humor, my passions, my pup, and my hardships. It is a positive, honest place. Illness is a huge part of my life. I talk about it when it is appropriate and I try to use my voice to help others with chronic and mental illness. I talk about my struggles, but I try to keep complaining to a minimum and I try to keep a positive outlook even when things are dire. Most people seem to appreciate that.
I will admit that when I write things for my blog I can present the best version of myself. I can be profounder, humbler, and wiser than if I was having a spontaneous conversation with someone. But you are free to ask those who know me best. This blog, my words, my ideas… they are very much me. Just with a bit of spit & polish for public consumption.
This is an homage to The Frogman and all his accomplishments. He’s an amazing person who’s website you ought to check out!
You might not be able to scratch your back, I did it for you.
Oh man, I need that tree so bad. My hole is itching like crazy.
This is beautiful, thank you.
Since I am still recovering from having a hole in my back. Chris was nice enough to do another Animal Facts with Lil Froggy!
anyway here’s wonderwall
