DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Humblebrag Tuesday

DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Humblebrag Tuesday

This week’s episode is much more positive and cheerful than they’ve been recently. Just kidding, it’s all about death. A few great humans passed recently, so I dwell on that while dealing with my own lack of creativity. Somewhere in there is a positive message for those who look hard enough. Live long and prosper.

DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Tempered Expectations Tuesday

DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Tempered Expectations Tuesday

In hindsight, this episode finds me in dire need of some coffee and a hug. On the bright side, I remembered to talk about art this week. Listen to me describe a bunch of drawings that I accidentally spilled olive oil on after recording. Perhaps art historians of the future will have fierce debates on […]

In this episode, I’m nursing a hangover in the aftermath of the double-header of Friday the 13th and Valentine’s Day. Topics include Googling medical advice, creeping out stationary store employees, and riding the train in Japan. I also give an open invitation to answer whatever terribly personal questions my listeners have for me. I regret […]

DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Tuesday the Thirteenthentine’s Day (Bonus Episode)

DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Tuesday the Thirteenthentine’s Day (Bonus Episode)

This week, I’m giving you an extra episode in celebration of Friday the 13th and in dread of Valentine’s Day. My gift to you all is a few minutes of unsolicited relationship advice from the worst person to take advice from: me. Maybe you’ll find my advice helpful. Maybe you’ll find it abhorrent. Maybe you’re […]

DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Culturally Insensitive Pessimism Tuesday

DRUNK ILLUSTRATION TUESDAY: Culturally Insensitive Pessimism Tuesday

This is the episode that will keep me from becoming president one day. I give medical advice that I am not qualified to give. I oversimplify revered cultural traditions. I make sweeping generalizations and support offensive stereotypes. On top of that, I express bitterly pessimistic opinions on social dynamics and gender politics. It’s a really […]
