EDIT: I finally managed to get it uploaded! New Taxo Unbo is on Studio NDR right here. I solved the mystery by leaving for a couple of hours, and then trying again.
So I do have a new Taxo Unbo ready, and have been able to post it to Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and Patreon, but for some reason the WordPress media manager absolutely, positively refuses to upload the file.
I have tried resaving the file in a couple different formats, I’ve tried renaming it, I’ve tried using a different browser: all of these generate an “HTTP error” with no additional information. I’m able to upload other image files, just not this particular one to this particular website. I am completely and totally baffled, no clue whatsoever what to try next.
Soooo, anyway. You can in point of fact read the new comic, you just gotta do it at one of these other places:
Speaking of the ol’ Patreon, I’ve been posting a few work-in-progress images from the new Valley of the Silk Sky short story. The most recent is here and is available to $1+ subscribers. I have another I’ll likely post tomorrow.
Anyhow, back to bashing my head against this website to try to figure out why I can’t upload this one image that every other website has had no problems with.
All the new Taxonomically Unbounds this month are gonna be Halloweeny, so just imagine me pulling a lever in a dungeon and screaming something about Pun Goth Power to Maximum. The first ghoulish endeavor is available here:
Also, I’m hoping to get a post up tomorrow for $1+ Patrons with work-in-progress sneak previews of the new Valley of the Silk Sky short story, so if you wanna peep such a thing, drop a buck in the bucket.
The latest in the Most Worst Puns onslaught is here for your reading “pleasure”:
Starting next week, I will be inflicting a series of Halloween-themed pun comics upon you all, so brace yourselves for that.
In other news, it may interest you to learn I just finished penciling that Valley of the Silk Sky short story I’ve been working on for an upcoming anthology. Next up: inking, inking, and more inking!
That means folks who pledge $1 or more to my Patreon will soon be getting sneak previews of the work-in-progress.
And, of course, once I have more info about the Kickstarter for the anthology (which I think will be going up in November?) I will let you know.
Yes indeed, it is time once again for a new Taxonomically Unbound. It may be groaned at in any one of these fine places:
Also, in case you missed the announcement last week, don’t forget to check out Draw Out the Vote, the new website put together by Oni Press. It features comics by cartoonists from all 50 states, plus Washington DC and Puerto Rico, sharing their personal stories about why voting is important to them.
I did the comic for Colorado. There’s info for each state on how to get registered and how to vote, so be sure to give it a look and share widely!
Yes indeed, a new Taxonomically Unbound makes itself known today. It lives in these places:
I thought I was going to have another announcement today, but it has not yet been officially announced. So. I may well be posting again shortly, just waiting for a green light.
ANYway. Do carrion.
It’s been awhile, but I finally got around to making a bunch of new Taxonomically Unbound comics. These are my Most Worst Puns illustrated with various doodles and sketches I’ve done.
I’ll be running these weekly throughout the rest of 2018, so brace yourselves.
The first of the new batch may be seen in these places:
Meanwhile, the STAPLE! Independent Media Expo is this very weekend Sept 8-9 in Austin, Texas, you’ll find me there at table 20A with my various comics and Feeping Creatures monster art.
I will also be on a panel on Saturday, Sept. 9 in The Theater:
4:30 PM – 5:30 PM: LGBTQIA Comics Panel – Prominent & Emerging Comics Creators discuss their work and experiences in the comics industry. With Lilah Sturges, Jeremy Holt, Alex Grandstaff & Dylan Edwards. Moderated by Sarah Marloff of the Austin Chronicle.
See you this weekend, Austin!
Chapter 10 marches on with page 94 reporting for duty. Observe:
Nevermind that, you say. What of these SDCC deets of which you speak? Well, then, read on …
The San Diego Comic Book Concern and Entertainment Emporium
Guess what! I’m going to be at San Diego Comic Con next week (July 18-22, 2018). Here’s where you can find me:
Small Press L-05 is where I’ll be camped out in general throughout the week. Come buy some comics!
I am also on two panels:
Transformation Magic: Transgender Life in Comics from Street Level to the Stratosphere – Thursday, July 19, 6:00 PM – Room 28DE
Secret Loves of Geeks – Sunday, July 22, 11:00 AM – Room 32AB
I’ll also be doing a signing at the Dark Horse Comics booth, along with several other creators featured in the Secret Loves of Geeks anthology, just after the Secret Loves of Geeks panel, from 12:30 – 1:15 on Sunday, July 22. This would be a great time to snag some sigs on your copy of the book!
Finally a word about advertising
Maybe you know this, and maybe you don’t, but Project Wonderful has closed its doors. I ran ads through them to help defray the costs of hosting this website, and while the money I made from advertising never fully covered those costs, it was still much appreciated.
At this time I don’t have plans for any new ad hosting. If you enjoy my work and want to help with the expenses I take on to maintain this site, please do consider becoming a regular Patron, or giving a one-time donation via Ko-Fi (they suggest $3, you can put in whatever dollar amount you like).
Yes indeed, Chapter 10 has arrived, and page 93 awaits your eyeballs in these various locations:
If you want to nerd out about that face Tavaly is making in the second panel, this public Patreon post has the rundown.
Meanwhile, WesterCon 71 (a.k.a. MALCon 6) is going on RIGHT NOW here in Denver.
You’ll find me in the dealer’s room at the Out in Colorado table throughout the show. I’m also on a veritable slew of panels:
Wed, 12:00 PM-12:50 PM, The Laser Cannon on Page Two (Thunderpass)
Thu, 12:00 PM-12:50 PM, Queer and Trans characters in Sci-Fi and Fantasy (Serenity)
Sat, 10:00 AM-10:50 AM, Characters are Who, not What (Serenity)
Sun, 10:00 AM-10:50 AM, Body Image in Sci Fi & Fantasy (Room of Requirement)
Sun, 12:00 PM-12:50 PM, Diversity in Fandom (Serenity)
Come to the show, buy some comics, and hit up some programming!
I will be at Denver Comic Con this weekend, but just for Friday. My schedule is thusly:

PANEL: Denver Public Library Presents – Creating Comics & Community in Colorado, Room 302
1:00 – 4:00 PM
BOOTH SIGNING: Charlie LaGreca/DiNK Booth #1300
4:00 – 4:50 PM
PANEL: How To Support Small Artists, Room 607
So! if you’re going to be at Denver Comic Con on Friday, you should come find me at one of these things.
Also, if you are a giant nerd, I’m doing world-building appendix posts over on the Valley of the Silk Sky tumblr in between chapters.
$1+ Patreons get to peep concept art and other behind-the-scenes stuff on upcoming projects during the break, so drop a dollar if you wanna see.
Valley of the Silk Sky page 92 is up! Oh, and don’t mind that thing in the corner. I’m sure it’s nothing:
And that’s a wrap on Chapter 9! Go here if you want to read the whole chapter in a single sitting.
Chapter 10 will start running in a couple-few weeks. In the meantime, I’ll be doing the usual world-building posts between chapters on the Valley of the Silk Sky website.
If you don’t want to wait, you can, of course, always pick up the collection of Part Two, which includes chapters 6-10 in their entirety. Available in print and digital editions, or on ComiXology.
During the break, Patrons who pledge $1 or more will get to peep some concept art for a Valley of the Silk Sky short story I’m working on for an upcoming anthology. Neat!
See you soon,
