I put the whole thing on the internet because I just want everyone to see it.  I’ll be printing things soon. but look at it on the internet before you get a physical copy! also, a warning: if you ever had to let go of a pet, or have even just owned a pet, this might make you very sad.

I’ve been waiting with baited breath for a longer form comic from Melissa Brain. Do yourself a favor and check this out! 

I haven’t made a comic in months and months and this makes me really anxious to get back on it. Check out and follow Melissa’s work!

What We’re Reading Wednesday
Little Fish: a memoir from a different kind of year by Ramsey Beyer is a coming-of-age graphic novel that’s essential reading for anyone getting ready to leave home for the first time (or anyone who remembers what it felt like!).
Whether you’re going away to college, joining the military, or branching out for a new job, you’ll surely relate to Beyer’s charming illustrations and journal entries as she forges new friendships and even finds new love on her journey to independence in the big city.
PS- Most of it takes places at Baltimore’s own MICA!

Found this little review on tumblr. Thanks!

Anonymous asked: I'm currently planning a sleeve that I want to get in the next year, but I want to tighten up a bit first. How do you recommend getting into the workout routine? I love being healthy but I have never worked out steadily apart from running

here are the things that have worked best for me:

1. crossfit - having a trainer and someone programming the workouts and showing me what to do each day takes out all the guesswork that makes you feel self-conscious at the gym. i hate walking into a regular gym and feeling clueless or feeling like everyone is wondering what the fuck i’m doing over there in the corner. i’m currently in that boat right now and i’m so glad i have a base knowledge from having gone to crossfit for so long because it feels awkward as fuck! 

2. sprints/interval style workouts rather than mid-pace cardio. i get bored and don’t want to do 45 minutes on a treadmill. it’s the worst. instead, i do high intensity, fast paced workouts that are over within 20 minutes usually. i can convince myself to do that but 45 minutes to an hour feels like such a drag. i’d way rather work harder for less time.

3. build it into your mandatory daily routine. i bring my workout clothes to work and go to the gym straight from there, even though my house is in between my work and my gym. if i were to stop home to get my gym clothes instead, i would probably only ever actually leave again like 50% of the time. i even LIKE to work out and i still constantly find excuses not to go. i started thinking of it as the end of my work day and make it part of what i have to do before i go home. 

4. strength train! and tracking tangible gains. i keep a record of workouts i do, and then do the same ones a few weeks later and compare my times, lifts, etc. It’s a way better way to motivate yourself than stepping on a scale or something like that (which fluctuates almost arbitrarily depending on when you ate, if you’ve sweat a lot, if you’re on your period, if you’re on a different scale, if you gained muscle, etc). Doing a work out for time makes it feel like a game and it gives you a motivator to help you push yourself. If I don’t have something to work against (like timing my work out, or seeing how many rounds I can do within a set time) I never push myself very hard and don’t feel like I’ve made the most of my time at the gym. at the gym, i do “travel wods.” google them! 

5. try different things! a lot of it just depends on finding something you like and that works for you. it’s really different from person to person. i hate running but am totally down to do other cardio stuff or weight training stuff (like tons of squats, or burpees, or jumprope or kettlebell swings, for instance). try out different things and see what works for you. mix it up! i do a different thing every day so it doesn’t feel monotonous. 

6. also, it just takes work and consistency. it’s stiiiiiiilll hard for me and i’ve been actively into fitness for 4+ years at this point. before that, i was totally in the same spot you are. you just have to decide to be a person that is committed to it, and then honor your decision. 

i’m excited for you to get into fitness because it feels awesome to be doing something really good for yourself. if you feel like you want to tighten up before getting your sleeve, that’s 100% okay and real, but i’m sure it would look bangin either way. best of luck.

I’ve been thinking a lot about writing, being a writer, putting my work and myself “out there”, and learning how to work and write every day.

Inspired by friends who are constantly creating and pushing themselves, I’ve decided to jump right into the new year with a project. Starting January 1,…

My roommate Laura is a really great creative writer. She’s just starting a project where she will write a short (310 words or less) story on her tumblr every day. I recommend following her tumblr so you don’t miss out!

—This Will Be Our Year (The Zombies)

michaelcantor:

Last night, I recorded a version of “This Will Be Our Year” by The Zombies to cassette tape. All in all, 2013 was pretty good. 2014 will be better. Happy New Year.

So simple and good. This song is a gem and Mikey always does justice to the gems.

Hello Lizbians,

It’s that time of the year again, for my annual birthday request. The best gift you could give me for my birthday is to share my comics with friends who you think would enjoy them as much as you do. As an artist, the only external gratification I get is that people (sometimes) like my work! This year is a little different, because in February my first new Top Shelf book in 5 years will be available in comic shops and bookstores! Alone Forever: The Singles Collection is a compendium of all the Alone Forever strips from my website, as well as new material never available anywhere else.

 Here’s where you come in: If you’ve enjoyed the comics series that I’ve been posting online since 2010, please consider buying the book!

1. Pre-order is available from Top Shelf Productions.  Ordering the book online from Top Shelf puts the money directly into my publishers hands, which is better than siphoning it through a conglomerate like Amazon.

2. Actually requesting the book from your local comic shop or independent book store.  This method is probably my favorite, because it supports a local business, my publisher, and myself.  The more people that request the book from an actual storefront, the more copies that might get ordered for the shelf, that way a browser can discover the book and enjoy it just as much as you!

3. Just reblogging your favorite Liz Prince comic, and pointing people towards my website.  Who knows, maybe you’ll gain me a lifelong reader, and for that I’d be eternally grateful!

Thanks for supporting me through another awesome year of drawing comics.  Seriously, if it weren’t for you readers, I wouldn’t exist!

It’s Liz’s birthday!! For her birthday, pre-order her new book, which will be out around valentines day. She deserves all or your support, as an honest, hardworking and humble comic artist who does it all right. She’s been a huge resource to me as I’ve gotten further into the world of comics and I’m really thankful for her support and insight.
