Relax. I would never shoot a bear. Even though several have shot at me.

Bearskinrug, Redux

— After many a month, Bearskinrug has relaunched with a new face. Here you can find all the work I put out into the world. Browse through the stream of comics, sketches, tweets, and illustrations I’ve generated since closing the previous Bearskinrug, view the various projects I’ve worked on, or treat yourself to a book that I’ve produced. I’m sure you’ll find something you like! Or, if not, I’m sure you’ll find something you don’t like. It’s a win/win for you!

But before you close this window and return to that BuzzFeed list of the top 87 celebrities who hate pineapple, I would be remiss if I did not thank those who made this site possible. First, my endless thanks go to Matt Kircher, who took my lifeless .psd’s and zapped them into existence, and then had to grin and bear it as I tinkered under the hood in my clumsy fashion. I assure you, if you find something askew, it is probably my doing. Thanks also to Daniel Mall, Greg Serault, and Ashley Steigerwalt, who pitched in last minute when I needed some more coding help. And finally, thanks to brave folk who gave me feedback on the site, Kimlan Cornell, Matt Sutter, Jason Santa Maria, Peter Dalkner, Kirk Peterson, and Rob Weychert.

Now, with that out of the way, I bid you a fond adieu. Which is french for, I’m totally going to eat a bunch of pie and Benadryl and zonk out for 17 hours.
