MGH Diabetes Views webcomic: No Exercise Excuses

Panel from exercise excuses webcomic on the MGH Diabetes Views blog

My latest webcomic for the MGH Diabetes Views blog is up!

It’s about taking common excuses for not exercising and finding ways around them! I am the master of looking at speedbumps in my path and treating them like they’re mountains, so believe me, this comic comes from the heart.

Ultimate Powers Jam: Worrybird

Logo for Andrew Weiss’ Ultimate Powers Jam; logo by Dave Lartigue

I got to participate in Pal Andrew’s Ultimate Powers Jam!

Here’s how it goes: Andrew Weiss uses the character creation rules from the Marvel Super Heroes RPG’s Ultimate Powers Book to roll up a random character description. Then he hands them off to artists and writers to flesh out.

One of those handoffs was to me! Check out Ultimate Powers Jam #6, with art by me and writing by Fake AP Stylebook’s Ken Lowery. Who is … WORRYBIRD?

Come and see me at Artists Alley table AA343, right near my Boston Comics Roundtable pals. Minicomics, art, lots of chatter about comics and health care - all this can be yours! Possibly hugs as well; hug action pending on whether my gross mucus-fiesta head cold clears up.

What I love the most about MICE: Free admission! Anyone can stop in and get a taste of indie comics without having to lay out a huge chunk of cash.

I’ll be there and I’ll have new comics for sale! Check my new health info minicomic Mindful Drinking, a fun little thing about drinkin’ and cutting down a little by using mindfulness. Half auto-bio, half self-help, guest-stars a sloth.

And I’ve got a 4-page story in the latest issue of the Roundtable’s indie-flavored local superhero anthology, In a Single Bound! Look for my "Nuttin’ But Trouble!" which touches on two of my favorite topics: LADIES and ALLERGIES.

Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 11am-4pm, all in Lesley’s University Hall at 1815 Massachusetts Avenue (Porter Square), Cambridge, MA. MICE 2013: See you there!

Comic: Mindful Drinking

DRINKING! How awesome is drinking, you guys. But just like cats, caramel, and all the other cool stuff in life, sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.

If you’re looking to scale down the drinking a little, especially before it turns into A Problem, try mindfulness! Check out my comic "Mindful Drinking" for thoughts on being in the moment while boozing it up and autobio reflections on how habits get out of hand. Plus: THERE’S A SLOTH.

Read the whole thing for free online! Share it with pals on Tumblr! Order print copies from my comics webpage!
