Comic: I’m a tomato!!!

I have a surprisingly dark complexion (for a white person, at least). I have a bit of Native American blood in me and spend a ridiculous amount of time outside (even in the winter). Combined, that means that I’m usually more tan than all of my [...]

Comic: I make children cry

I remember doing this once when I was a kid. I grabbed onto what I thought was my mom’s skirt and then looked up and then it wasn’t her and I ran away screaming. I assume this happens all the time. In every country. So when I was at the [...]

Comic: Tofu Skins

I went to the city of Nikko recently with a friend. While I was there, I realized I haven’t gone on a trip without Ryosuke in, well, years. Before we met, I only traveled alone. I thought the easiest way to wreck a friendship was to travel [...]

Comic: I want to grow my beard back!

Ryosuke had to shave his little goatee when he started work last year. I drew a comic about it. Actually, this was the first comic I drew (in Japan). I drew it on some printer paper lying on the tatami mat while we were visiting Ryosuke’s [...]

Comic: Embracing the Unemployed Lifestyle

In February of this year, Ryosuke quit his job. Shortly after, we moved to the countryside. This is pretty much what happened (right before this comic). Ryosuke highly recommends walking around the house naked and drinking a beer for at least a week [...]

Not every company is like this, of course. One of the main reasons Ryosuke and I moved out of Tokyo (to the quieter, surrounding countryside) is the incredible work ethic people seem to have in Tokyo. All day at the office, then drinks with your [...]

Comic: Ryosuke is so tall

Ryosuke finally got glasses! He’s been wearing contacts for most of his adult life (because he hated the way glasses looked on his face). However, with the amount of time he spends studying, reading, or on the computer, he wanted to try to [...]

Comic: Time to find a new hobby!

Just kidding. I’m still going to keep drawing comics. For the last year, I’ve been using a specific type of pen from a specific art store in Ueno. I absolutely adore how it handles, what the lines look like, and how quickly it [...]

Comic: Apartment hunting in Tokyo VS the Japanese Countryside

People keep asking why we don’t live in Tokyo. It’s probably our “most asked” question this year. Truth is, there are a lot of complicated reasons. Part of it, of course, is finances. Our current place in the countryside is [...]

Comic: This is the countryside. It won’t be crowded.

Government offices always seem to take forever. It doesn’t matter what country you’re in. It took me several days of waiting in lines and bleak rooms in America to get all the documentation to get my name legally changed (after getting [...]
