Every year, I draw our family in a Halloween themed drawing. This is 2015′s effort. I had already done Ellen and I as Frankenstein’s Monster and The Bride a few years’ back but I wanted another whack at it with the kids in tow.

Here are some past Halloween (and Christmas!) drawings of the Pearce family.

I’m short a comic this week. Here’s some stuff.

Thanks to Netflix Instant, I am a complete convert to Doctor Who… or at least, the modern version of Doctor Who. I spent a good portion of my spring break getting up to speed with episodes of the second season.

Something that I’m working on for a friend.
