Comics: I’m useful!

Posted in comics with tags , , , , on December 29, 2016 by Christopher Pearce


…for the record, we’re pretty sure Elliot didn’t hear us, he was so absorbed in his Kindle. Plus he’s 9 years old so it’s going to happen eventually.


Sketchbook: Where he lives and what he brings

My 2 year old daughter is convinced Santa lives in our chimney… so suck it everyone else, I guess. WE GOT SANTA IN OUR CHIMNEY AND HE’S BRINGING ME BEER.

Pearce Family Holiday Drawing 2016!

Posted in illustration with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2016 by Christopher Pearce


By now you probably know the drill – every Christmas, I draw our family into a holiday themed picture which then gets used as the X-Mas card we send out to our friends and neighbors. Truth be told, I already had a go at The Grinch six years ago but I was never happy with how that one turned out (too much yellow!) and the previous grinchy doodle was done BEFORE we started sending these out as holiday greetings so… yeah, natural do-over.

Feel free to click here and peruse that last 7 years of holiday drawings.

Pearce Family Holiday Drawings: Halloween 2016

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2016 by Christopher Pearce


Every year, I do a Halloween drawing of my family on social media. This year, I took a page from one of my favorite Stephen King books (‘Salem’s Lot is definitely in my Top Three). I was a little dubious about this being THE Halloween drawing, since it doesn’t directly connect to the season, but whatever!

You can see the rest of the holiday drawings over the year here.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Posted in 2015-2016 school year with tags , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2016 by Christopher Pearce



It’s Teacher Appreciation Week and I drew this comic in appreciation of my son Henry’s teacher.

It’s a new comic! Hooray!

A eulogy for Creature

Posted in 2015-2016 school year with tags , , , , on February 22, 2016 by Christopher Pearce


Some sad news – Creature, the cat that belongs to my best friends Melissa and Brad, died this weekend.

Longtime readers of my comics probably remember Creature – he became QUITE popular during the LiveJournal days, when I was first starting to put my comics up online. Those comics still exist over on LJ and you should check ‘em out. He was a great cat.

We are heavy on eulogies on this website in the last few days. I will do something to try and change that before the end of the week.

Pearce Family Holiday Drawings: Christmas 2015

Posted in illustration with tags , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2015 by Christopher Pearce


If you’ve been following my comics here for long enough, you know the drill – every December, I draw my family’s Christmas card featuring all of us in some kind of seasonally appropriate homage. This year I decided to have a go at Rankin/Bass’ seemingly immortal Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. As a kid, this one was always my favorite.

Take a stroll back through Christmas and Halloweens past with some of the other Pearce Family Holiday drawings.
