Best of 2021

Before I take my customary holiday from chickening (I’ll be back on January 3!), let’s look back at the crazy year of 2021! Here’s my annual “class photo” of all of the characters who appeared in more than one comic this year.

This year was a bit of a rollercoaster ride for me because my mom passed away after a long fight with cancer. I drew a rare series of autobiographical comics as a tribute to her, and I was overwhelmed by the incredibly supportive comments and emails I received about these comics. Thank you all for being so awesome!

On the happier side of things, I released my newest book a few weeks ago: Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy: As The Deer Flies. This is how I spent much of my early pandemic, and it really helped to be able to throw myself into this fun creative project. I’m really happy to hear that people are enjoying it!

Here’s hoping 2022 brings more adventures and less pandemic! In the meantime, read the most popular Savage Chickens comics of 2021…

Best of 2020

Here’s my annual picture of everybody who appeared in more than one Savage Chickens comic this year. And what a strange year it has been! Because of the chaos of this year, my comics have veered between confronting the stress and avoiding it entirely through escapist weirdness. In the weirdness category, I really enjoyed drawing some unexpected theme weeks this year, including Melancholy Blob, Zep Broondar, and Moon Bear. Expect more weirdness from me in the new year, but let’s hope we have less real-life weirdness in 2021! For now, here’s…

Here’s my annual picture of everybody who appeared in more than one Savage Chickens comic this year – including me and my mom (the chickens playing cards here). I had a very busy 2019! I went on the road a lot! I visited my family (and drew a week of comics about them), I was a guest at Rose City Comic Con and at Hal-Con, and I did a tour of elementary schools around British Columbia. And somewhere in there, Andrews McMeel published my third Laser Moose and Rabbit Boy book, Time Trout!

As always, thanks to all you readers for stopping by and reading my chicken jokes. 2019 will be my 15th year of drawing them! And I’m very excited for you all to see what I’ve been working on, moose-wise, when my new book comes out in the fall. Happy New Year everybody and see you in 2019!
