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.

  5. Plz tell me where the queers who are willing to throw out their lives and responsibilities for a week of sex are because I am trapped in Google Calendar hell most of the time. ; ;

  6. Man, I remember the first month of dating my ex. Our first date lasted literally two days without a break. I failed two classes. Don’t be like me. Listen to Andy(‘s therapist). Set boundaries.
