I made a video of the comic about making a video.

It’s not a “process video,” per se (I have made plenty of those in the past), but I couldn’t resist making the most annoying social-media reel possible out of the latest comic, #1548.

I posted it on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

RELATED: There is a Wondermark Instagram. I set it up ages ago but have never committed to doing anything with it. Someday, I will post more things to it! Feel free to follow it now in case I do!

The most active community I post comics to these days has actually become Wondermark on Facebook?

In the macro, I dislike that website with a passion, but in the micro, I can’t argue with the results for my page in particular.

Lots of great people reading and commenting over there! If you are one of them…thanks!!

This Saturday: Reddit AMA!


This Saturday, May 18, starting at 10AM Pacific time, I’ll be doing a live “Ask Me Anything” on /r/comics.

I’ve been informed that the mods will make the actual post a few hours earlier, for questions to start rolling in. UPDATE: Here is the link to the thread!

I will of course (as is tradition) award a prize to the best question asked during the AMA.

I’ve done a few AMAs before, and topics previously discussed include:

➡️ In 2018:

  • Sick elephants!
  • Exclamation marks!
  • Sea lions!

➡️ In 2013:

  • The Machine of Death books and card game!
  • Tweet Me Harder, the podcast I did with Kris Straub that (at that point) had only recently concluded!
  • The art and state of webcomics!

Super interesting to see how things have changed and evolved since I gave those answers. Most of them still ring true, but a few have the lingering taste of “the way things were a while ago” on them now.

Anyway, please tune in this weekend to ask new questions and read new answers!!

Roll-a-Sketch: Now on Instagram!

It’s been a dozen years since I started doing Roll-a-Sketches at conventions!

Sometimes, even, your old pal Stan Lee shows up to help:

I’ve posted a ton of them here to the blog over the years, and to Twitter.

But there are SO MANY MORE drawings that still live on my camera roll, unseen.

I’m proud to say that I did some new sketches at the show in Juneau recently:



There were a few more, too — and you can see them on Roll-a-Sketch’s new Instagram page, @rollasketch.

I’ve started posting some of my favorites from the past decade to IG!

There’s also a Roll-a-Sketch Facebook page, which will shortly start mirroring the new posts — but which already has a huge backlog, from the last time I tried doing this.

This weekend: I’m in Juneau!


After a very long time with no appearances, I’m pleased to say I’ll be in Juneau, Alaska this weekend with books, trinkets and sketches!

The 2024 Alaska Robotics Minicon takes place on Saturday, April 27 at the APK Libraries, Archives, and Museum building.

I’ll also be doing a presentation the night before, Friday 4/26, at the kickoff variety show at the Mendenhall Valley Library. The full events schedule is here!

Final few days for #Pintopia!

I’m excited to remind folks that we are in the LAST FEW DAYS of the Pintopia campaign!

Most of the pledge tiers are for various numbers of pins, as you might expect.

But I’ve ALSO just added a new tier called PLEDGE MANAGER ONLY:


The best deals on groups of pins can be found in the regular pledge tiers (where every additional pin is cheaper than the last, as volume pricing does its magic).

But, if you’d prefer to peruse everything later and/or make à la carte selections, you can now opt in to the Pledge Manager tier for just $2.

This will give you access to the pledge manager after the campaign (with $2 credit already on board, natch), where you can then build your own reward of individual items, including:

  • Pins – of course!
  • Stickers – individually OR in sets
  • Wondermark greeting cards

But also, a few extra things will show up in the pledge manager as well:

  • Wondermark books and prints
  • Stickers of each of the NEW pin designs
  • T-shirts! I’ll be using this post-campaign order period to determine the long-term interest in making shirts of the new designs… So an initial, limited number will be made available.

If you haven’t joined the campaign yet, you have until APRIL 18, 1PM to pledge at any level, and gain access to these items! Here is a colorful button to click:
