Welcome to my semi-autobiographical comic, My Life In A Nutshell! Sporadically updated. Almost always lagging behind real life events and with wildly inconsistent art throughout. I think of this strip as my comic playground and creative petri dish.

Here are the My Life In A Nutshell archives. If you're mainly interested in the bit where I sell my website and move to the U.S. for a while, start here. Or if you prefer, you can start at the beginning

New Year's Resolution

I had fully intended to document the story of how I'M BORED got published in comic format, but decided to tell it via interviews, photos and sketches in the I'M BORED Bonus page instead. Here's where you can find more info:

How I'M BORED Was Created (A Photo Essay For Young Readers)

I'M BORED Scrapbook

and you can find lots of other info, including press quotes, activity sheets, tips for young writers ad illustrators, print-ready stationery and posters, more in the I'M BORED Bonus Page.
