This is my second year completing Inktober, as well as my second year using Star Trek as my theme. This time, instead of using the prompts I used a “30 Days of Trek” meme I found floating around the internet.

After a long hiatus, I wanted to make a comic for the five year anniversary of the original launch. I kept trying to come up with a topic that was “worthy,” but in the end I went with the story I was motivated to tell on the day that I began telling it.
April 1st, 2014 I published the first update to Life and How to Live It. A few of the comics were ones I’d already made, but this was the first time I put them under a heading with a name.
I hadn’t seriously considered doing a daily comic, much less think I could do that for three years.
I started this comic with a broken heart, I fell in love a few times, I lost my Mom, and I lived.
There’s still more to come. I hope you’ll join me for it.
When I was working on my Discovery piece, there were a few drawings I did that either didn’t come out the way I’d hoped or just didn’t end up working when I combined everything together. Today, I added some ink washes and repurposed them as a White Elephant gift at a Star Trek party. Here are a few I scanned to share with you.
In honor of it being four years since I launched the website, here’s the first comic I made for this: The Jon Hamm Dream.
This is an actual dream I had and this is still one of my favorite things I’ve made.
