What is this comic about?

It’s about me putting whatever I think is funny out on comic form. Sometimes, I put out things that aren’t so funny. On purpose.

How many times does it update?

Weekends, with the occasional comic thrown in on other days when I feel like it.

Why is it called “I’m Not Depressed?”

It’s because that making a webcomic on a regular basis requires energy and enthusiasm that depression just erases. In making these comics it’s a reminder that I’m currently doing really well in me combatting depression. For more information on my depression, I made a comic about it.

Are you sure? The comic is pretty dark and the title sounds like a statement of denial…

I am pretty dark, so that comes out in the work. Also, if you don’t know what depression is like it’s pretty much like being strapped to a chair while suffering from an intolerable nothingness. It’s certainly not “spend hours writing and drawing comics.”

What do you make this with?

I will occasionally draw on paper with blue pencil, then ink using a variety of micron pens and then scan those in to my computer. Mostly though, I use an iPad 6 with an Apple Pencil. I use the Comic Draw and Procreate apps, usually writing and laying it out in Comic Draw and drawing or enhancing the artwork in Procreate. I typically finish it up using Photoshop. 

The website runs off of WordPress, mostly a modified version of ComicEasel with a bunch of other code jammed in there like a cake in a mail slot.

Where are you?

Typically in my apartment or office/coffee shop in Chicago, Illinois.

Do you have a way for us to throw money at you?

Nobody is seriously asking that question right now. When they do, I will certainly add ways to throw money at me.
