Hump Day

For the past two weeks I've been enjoying a brand of oatmeal that I recently discovered due to the fact that I had a coupon for it. The brand is Better Oats and although they have other flavors, I was eating the flavor "raw-pure and simple" because most flavored oatmeals have unnecessary added sugars and what not. It tastes like crap when it's plain, but if you add just one packet of a zero-calorie sweetener like Splenda, it makes a world of difference 0_0

Anyhoo, I'm sure this story about oatmeal is interesting. The point of my story is that I ran out of Better Oats so I bought my local grocery store brand in plain instead,'s disappointing. From now on I'm sticking with the good stuff. Lesson learned. 

I'm working on a new illustration, just something simple. I don't want to post it yet because I'm actually almost done with it. However, there are always comics to post, so here's another doodaloo. I don't know about you, but I have the worst memory when it comes to reading books. I can remember bits and pieces, but for the most part I completely forget almost everything that happens in a book the second I finish it. This is especially bad when I burn through a series of books, one after the other, in a short amount of time. I usually end up forgetting what part came from what book, so don't quiz me on Harry Potter because I will most likely draw a blank.

P.S. I'm really bummed because this was almost small enough to bump up to the size XL, but it just barely hung over the edge. And now it's microscopic, so you'll have to click to zoom.


  1. Hi I found you through Illustration Friday and was looking back at some of your work, which I love btw!

    I always want to size my pics XL and they always go over a smidge, but I found a solution so you can go as close to XL as possible.

    You put the pic in, choose XL, then switch from "compose" to "HTML" in the upper left corner. You'll see the code for your picture. Within the code there is a spot that says width with a number and height with a number.

    I take each number and multiply it by .9 to reduce it slightly and replace the respective numbers (ex- height = "640" to height = "576"). You can then switch back to "compose" and make sure that your photo has not been skewed.

    For some reason sometimes when I mess with the numbers it gets skewed even if the ratio is the same, but it hasn't happened when I use the multiplier of .9.

    This might be something that is obvious to you, but just in case it's not I thought I'd share my tip :0)

    1. I don't know why I never thought of coding : 0 Thank you!

    2. Update: It works like a charm! You're brilliant!
