I'm a cartoonist living in Minneapolis. Co-Author and artist of A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns. Author of Grease Bats, coming out Fall 2019 with Boom! Studios! If I'm not working I'm socializing. If I'm not out with friends I'm drawing. If I'm not doing any of those things I'm probably depressed. Support me using Patreon.

  1. Lying on the ground is my favourite place to decompress! I don’t know why but its not like lying on a sofa or a bed, it’s some kind of magical other place where all you need to do is breathe deeply and exist.

    Does always remind me to hoover though.

  2. whilst this is feeling me with incredible feelings of Big Mood, mostly it’s feeling me with an incredible desire to make myself a “trash daddy” shirt…

  3. Reading the first panel I thought “oh no I bet the floor is dirty.. Get up!” Thanks Ari for reading my mind ?

  4. Way to relatable, just swap binder for bra & inserts. Thank you Archie for the great work you do, it’s always relatable & brings a smile to my face. Miss FistYou btw.

  5. man srsly! why is there no path forward for “solve gender ID once and for all”. can’t i just live?!?! lying on the floor sounds good.

  6. Ugh, this. =___=;;;

    The floor sounds so good right now… orz (Is a good reminder I need to sweep, though.)

  7. I love this! This is exactly how I’m feeling today — just wanting to ignore it all. Thank you Archie for reminding me that thinking and feeling all this gender stuff is worth it in the long run! And that I’m not alone :)

  8. do the work and “it’ll be terrible until it’s not” I apparently saved this til Monday because I knew I needed to be sitting down for it to properly change my life i lOVE THIS SO MUCH and same andy HARD SAME
