This is my second year at the Word Vancouver festival, and I will be selling posters, postcards, and chapbooks in the Alice MacKay room of the Vancouver Public Library all day today (Sunday, September 25). I will also have lots of my friend Peter Chiykowski’s Rock, Paper, Cynic merchandise available too.
I’m still working on my Star Wars action figure comic, but I took a break to write a little book that I’m really proud of: The Existentialist Lop.
“I just read Existentialism as a Hoomanism”
It’s basically a beginner’s guide to existentialism as told through the thoughts of a lop bunny rabbit. Lops have long, droopy ears, and they are delight to follow on Instagram. My comic is in the style of the Lops of Instagram who refer to their “Mommy” or “Hoomans” in their first-person posts.
I also have a poem coming out soon in Carousel Magazine. The issue will debut at the Word on the Street Festival in Toronto… today I think! I’ll post more about this soon.
Hope to see you at Word Vancouver!
Part 1 and Part 2 below.
The next comic is a scene change, and you get to finally see the “passengers” that Sidon and Quiggold are looking for.

The Vancouver Comic Arts Festival is this weekend at the Yaletown Roundhouse! I will be there at a booth with Rock, Paper, Cynic. He just released a full album of amazing (i.e. geeky) songs that you’ll love, and we’ll have his books, t-shirts, posters, and other merch available.
I’ll have a few things out . . . like a new set of Star Wars haiku postcards!!! I’m so excited about these (thus the three exclamation points). They’re a great way to tell your friends how well-travelled you are through hyperspace.
I’ve also been doing a lot of photography of my Star Wars action figures lately. Force Awakens really got me re-excited about Star Wars. That and my friend Macroworlder, whose own toy-photography inspired me. I’ll be posting the beginning of a comic I’ve been writing about the pirates Sidon Ithano and Quiggold (seen offering Finn a ride in the Force Awakens). TOMORROW.
Damn he looks so cool
Pretty exciting stuff! Please come see us at the festival or drop us a line on most social media. He’s @rockpapercynic; I’m @writelightning.
May the Force be with you!
