So I’m taking out the identifying info, but this note so touched me, so made me sit back and say, “You get it - thank you, thank you because I know you’re gonna go out and do good things, you already are, even if you don’t see it yet.”

Punk and Zen - revised cover artwork now with scribbly background texture.
Hey! Today, the lovely state of Illinois passed legislation making it a-ok for same sex marriages! I live in Illinois so you’re damn right I’m happy about it. I drew this CLASSIC Max & Lily comic about the ridiculousness of who is “allowed” to marry 9 years ago. I had no idea then that I would be so thrilled to have the freedom to marry, to have the same rights as everyone else. Illinois is the 15th state to catch up with the rest of the cool kids, so the country has a lot of work to do. But I think we’re getting there much faster than a lot of us ever expected.
I know, it’s only rock ‘n’ roll, but I like it. Yes, I do.
I like it, I like it!

Oh, hey! Hello! Long time no post, eh? It’s been a very busy late summer and early fall. And how appropriate that I return with this strip since I spent the better part of yesterday in a car on a long-ass road trip. I don’t care if I ever see the inside of my motor vehicle again.
As I said previously, I drive a lot. Driving long distances is fun and boring at the same time. So much so that I often find myself running out of entertainment mere minutes into the trip. Which makes the crazy long day crossing Nevada on the way to San Francisco a journey into insanity.
Where the heck have I been?
And…DONE! Cover art for JD Glass’ book Punk and Zen: The Remix. Coming soon from Affinity Press.

Two old friends talk about relationships - specifically about the fear of entering into a new one - in this scene from “Chop Suey” by Kris Dresen. Kris is a veteran cartoonist - she’s been nominated for the prestigious Eisner Award, won the Xeric grant, and most recently was selected for the list of “Notable Comics” in the new edition of Best American Comics. She has the deep respect of her peers in the industry, none more so than from me. It’s an honor to feature 10 new pages from her in QU33R. As you know, QU33R is being kickstarted - we are now in the final 2 weeks of the campaign. Please pledge if you can, and help spread the word if you would! Thank you!! xo Rob K.
QU33R is going to be amazing. Please support if you can!
Great work by great storytellers - ya gotta get yours!
Rockin’ off the page!
