I run the show.
Yes indeed, I have a new Taxo Unbo with which to torment you, and it may be found in these places:
And Meow This
Speaking of punnery, that there is the title of the all-cat art show I’m in, and it opens this very weekend. My pieces in this show come from the Feeping Creatures side of my artistic output, so expect monsters and cuteness.
Come to Spectra Art Space at 7 PM on Saturday, February 9 to party at the opening reception and revel in the feline art.
Spectra is located at 1836 South Broadway in Denver, CO. Come to the thing!
Continuing with my efforts to add comics to my website that were originally published elsewhere, here’s the piece I originally created for the 2018 Draw Out the Vote project from Oni Press. Cartoonists from each of the 50 states discussed political issues relevant to their state, and why voting is an important part of addressing those issues. My comic focused on LGBT issues in Colorado.
Anyhow, this is now posted to the here in the Autobio Comics section of good ol’ Studio NDR.
But what of 2019, you ask?
I made a public Patreon post going into some detail regarding my comic makin’ plans for this year.
The TL;DR: version is more Valley of the Silk Sky, including a new minicomic, a new issue of QAT Person, and further pun horrors with Taxonomically Unbound.
Anyway, I seem to be having yet more website issues, so I guess I’ll drop everything and go troubleshoot that now. Cool!

This is not actually a NEW new comic, just one I realized I had forgotten to post here on the ol’ home site. It was originally published by The Nib way back in June of 2018 as part of their Response feature on transgender stuffs.
You can read all the Response comics here on The Nib’s site, or you can read just my comic here on Studio NDR.
As for t’other news:
I had meant to have enough Taxonomically Unbound comics done to last through the end of the year. That didn’t quite happen, on account of various things exploded (my creaky old version of Photoshop, my website, my other website), and I have spent much of this month Dealing With Trying to Get Basic Things Working Again instead of making new art.
One of my temporary solutions to the Photoshop explosion problem was to download Clip Studio Paint, a graphics program that’s more specifically designed for comics creation. I have not actually had time to learn how to use it due to the various website explosions, but one of my goals for the coming weeks is to at least dip into the basics. Probably gonna make some new Taxo Unbos as part of my practice efforts.
I’m also working on a bunch of Valley of the Silk Sky stuff, about which I shall go into more detail next week as a sort of What to Expect in 2019 post. SO. Stay tooned!
This comic was originally published by The Nib, as part of a Response feature with several cartoonists giving their thoughts on what it means to be transgender and how that has changed for them over time. You can view all the comics here.
Just as you feared, there is a new Taxonomically Unbound, and it lurks in these locations:
There is also, as you may have gleaned from the headline, a brang new Valley of the Silk Sky website:
This is, as I have probably mentioned before, a replacement for the VotSS tumblr website. While the tumblr one still exists, this new one is self-hosted and therefore less subject to the whims of content moderation algorithms.
It is also much easier to navigate, given that the underlying architecture is more conducive to separating comics from appendices from random art. Also the tagging is actually useful, since it’s not mixed in with all the rest of tumblr’s tags.
ANYway. I’ll continue to post VotSS comic pages here on Studio NDR, but, as before, extra content like appendices, concept art, character portraits, and all that biz will live over there.
Yes indeed, the latest in Taxonomically Unbound punnery may be found here:
Meanwhile, I’ve been working away on the new Valley of the Silk Sky website, which is still not ready for your eyeballs, but it is definitely starting to take shape. Turns out I’ve created a fair amount of content for this series, and it’s gonna take awhile to get it all put in place.
Speaking of Valley of the Silk Sky, if you’ve been wanting to get the digital edition from ComiXology but have been holding off for whatever reason, it might interest you to learn that it’s on sale for 50% off at the moment. You can grab both collections here:
