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. The one time I had a crush on a roommate I told her and I am so glad that I did. My feelings were not reciprocated but it was such a relief to have them out in the open as something that could be recognized and discussed instead of something that I had to hide. It let me do a lot of roommate and friend things that otherwise I would have been like “is this a date???” and be able to answer “no Alice, this is not a date, calm down, you are having fun with your friend.”

  2. I am both of these when I have a crush, but very very little Andy so really it’s just me being like “I should do something to let them know I like them!” and then the rest of me going “DON’T DO ANYTHING. LEAVE IT ALONE. LET IT FADE. MOVE TO A DIFFERENT STATE.”

  3. I hooked up with a housemate. We were fine, but our other housemate gave us both black eyes because she fancied both of us. Punching people is a bad way to say you like them tho.
    Also, I am disappointed Andy does not like Settlers of Catan. How about Ticket to Ride, Andy??

  4. I realized I had a crush on my roommate (but suppressed the feelings b/c whut ur not gay!) and it was actually part of how I found out I was mayyyybe not straight. So, thanks roommate who I don’t talk to anymore for helping me figure out I’m bisexual!
