I feel like this hasn’t been a stellar time for decision-making on the crew’s part all around. In fairness, maybe they’re all recovering from post-Tiki-God-stress-disorder. Too bad things are about to get even worse

So in other news, I’m going to be a guest at this year’s Spocon here in Spokane, WA! It’s this weekend at the Doubletree Hotel. I’ll be on several panels and have several times during the day when I’ll be doing commissions and have some Catbeard-related prints.

On an unrelated note, I’m sure everyone heard that comedian Robin Williams killed himself this week. Most, if not all, people who entertain in the comedy industry have bouts with depression. I know I’ve had my moments. I wanted to take this opportunity to talk straight to any of my readers who might be depressed or have ever considered suicide. I know things are hard, believe me. I want to encourage you right now to reach out to someone, anyone, and talk to them about what you’re going through. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached at 1-800-273-8255 or by clicking the name. I’m a lucky man; I have a very supportive family, good friends, and my faith in Jesus to get me through tough times. If none of these things seem to help you, maybe this last one will. You, you specifically. I’m writing Catbeard for you. I want you to be around to see how it ends.
