this one’s for greg!

this is another one of those alchemical transformations in which a wizard took an online thingie and turned it into a real bookpoof!

it’s not a transmutation in which all 100 pages are the funniest thing ever, but there are plenty that made me laugh.

and while i do not personally know the author/illustrator, we share an opinion about a particular beloved beastie, which i discovered on his “about the author” page, because why yes, i DO read those:

His favorite animal is the red panda and he’s convinced that if you don’t know what a red panda is and take a second to look it up, it’ll be your favorite animal soon too.


my favorites are among the (many) cat-based pictures, which should come as no surprise:

also no surprise that i applaud the heroism of sharks:

and animals being jerks to other animals:

especially the jerkiest creatures of allbirrrrrrds:

it’s cute; i especially like the way he draws raccoons and the way the situations are sometimes specific to the animal kingdom:

and sometimes have behavioral crossover into our own:

it’s good for some ha-has; if you’re on the fence, check out the online comics, including this one that somehow didn’t make the cut because wizards make mistakes, too:


that’s all i needSOLD!

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
