Joseph Scrimshaw and His Unstable Rodent

What happens when you give a squirrel a martini and a light saber? It’s probably best not to think about the ramifications of such actions. However, if you are at all curious, I highly recommend checking out the comedic ramblings of Joseph Scrimshaw. I’ve also heard he is the primary expert in drunken weaponized squirrels.

An unstable squirrel.

In related news, I did design that squirrel image, which, I have to admit, was pretty awesome.

In other related news, you should go check out all of Joseph’s hilariously humorous things and go support his Patreon campaign while your at it. If you do happen to join the Patreon campaign, you can get all sorts of fun things including, but not limited to, a copy of his book Comedy of Doom, your very own LOLScrimshaw and short awkward poems about a random thing you think should be honored in short awkward poetic form.

Weekly Comic Update: There’s a Venn For That

Because I somehow forgot to post one of these last week, you get double the goodness. Hooray for forgetfulness?

CS_2-7 Ever wander into a room and forget why you came in there? The horrible abominations over at Cthulhu Slippers also have this problem from time to time.




CS_2-8 Remember folks, a clean fridge is a fridge that probably won’t try to eat you. Probably.




oe-001 In the first Over-Encumbered comic we learn about Harriet’s will power.






In which Yukon and Jupiter ponder life, the universe, and Venn diagrams.



Because what’s better than warm bread? <insert sliced warm bread joke here>

Due to popular demand I made this image available as a print and a t-shirt along with other goodies.

T-Shirts and goodies are available on my Spreadshirt page. If there’s a specific style/color/design you’d like, let me know.

The prints are available at my DeviantArt shop. Many sizes/papers/prices are available from the drop down.

Additionally, if anyone would prefer a custom signed print (8″x10″), email me for details.


Weekly Comic Update: Beards and Tentacles


CS_2-5Since I have more than one comic going on right now, I thought it would make more sense to just consolidate these updates each week.

So, to start things off, we learn about tentacles on this week’s episode of Cthulhu Slippers. When one works for a mega-corporation run mostly on and by tentacles, it’s always to wise to gain as much tentacle based knowledge as possible.

Check out the full comic over at Cthulhu Slippers.



Also this week we meet another Over-Encumbered character in our house of misfits. Jupiter may look the most “normal” out of the bunch, and in many senses he is, but looks can be diversionary. Or something.

Check out Jupiter’s character sheet over at Over-Encumbered. Now featuring a favicon and sharing buttons. Woo!



In other news, I tried my first Scotch egg last night and it was everything I’d hoped it would be. EGG! AND SAUSAGE! DEEP FRIED! It was glorious.

Cthulhu Slippers: A Truly Crazy Cruise


I’m happy to report that Cthulhu did not consume the JoCo Cruise Crazy 4 boat, only an abundance of fruity drinks. This is a postcard we created for the cruise. All 250 were quickly taken except the handful that someone made into a companion cube. So, all in all, a huge success. You can see the full comic over at Cthulhu Slippers.

The cruise this year was pretty amazing, although we all needed a nap by the end. The entertainment was top notch and quite fantastic.There was much lounging in the sun and in beautiful tropical water. Games were played. Giant LEGO structures were built. An imaginary ball pit wandered around the ship. WARM BREAD was eaten. Many ukuleles were strummed to a tune about flying lady bits. New friends were made and old friendships were nourished. Everyone, for the most part, was wonderful and supportive and full of kindness.

This is the third time we went on a JCCC cruise and, I have to say, they just keep on getting better. My only compliant was that we were utterly exhausted by the end of the six days because of all the awesome. So, really, not bad at all.

I highly recommend this trip. Next year is going to be eight fun filled days. The countdown is already starting. :)

Also, I have a few of these postcards left (I kept a couple as keepsakes). If you want one, leave a comment (be sure to include your email so I can contact you for addresses). First come, first served.
