[55] Chum

Note: I think I like this one. I had a better photo but there was no way to crop it to square and keep the quality :( perhaps I will put it up on flickr. Check the link over there -->

[54] Strange Signage

Note: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Lovely readers, I consider this to be a hold-over comic. I'll post a bonus comic on Tuesday night to make it up to you :) right now, I really need sleep. Enjoy!

[53] Letters to Santa

Note: Your photographer is really sick and sacrificed his health to bring you this comic.

Ugh, I need more advil(tm). I had 3 or 4 different ideas for this photo. All of them were funnier than this one but this one was the most developed. Please forgive me. Maybe next week I'll get to use one of my funny ideas.

[52] If Alien-anthropologists landed in Vegas.

Note: Las Vegas should be used for entertainment purposes only.

As promised, a Las Vegas themed comic! I'd like to give one more giant thanks to John C. Worsley. You should all check out his incredible artwork over at Www.OpenVein.Com.

[51] Guest Post #2

Greetings everyone. I'm stuck in Las Vegas with nearly zero internet access. Two of my peers graciously offered up artwork to guest post today. Special thanks to both Jeremy Peterson who wrote the porn-themed post, and John C. Worsley who wrote the bomb themed post.

I'll be back next week with a special Vegas-themed post!

[50] Secret Tiger

Note: This took way too long to write.. and I'm still not 100% happy. But it's 1:50 and I gotta go to work soon. :(

Addendum: Please remember, SkidmoreBluffs is *fiction*. Example: My father doesn't actually make mechanical birds... Though, he does spend a lot of time alone in the basement, and I keep finding feathers everywhere.

[49] Darkton Matterly

Note: You see, the pressure drop from the fridge door opening accounts for the accelerating expansion of the universe, specifically, toward the kitchen.

The text on the image was edited by Miss Ali of Indigo Editing. The rest of this drivel wasn't so don't blame her. :P

[48] When Metaphors Attack!

Note: Pester your comic artist to get the new site done faster. He's a slacker.

Portlanders should go check out the Roseway Theatre on NE Sandy and 72nd. Something about it makes you feel like you're sitting in the 1950s. Just don't park in the parking lot next door, you'll get towed.

Thanks to Kjerstin for putting up with my crazed obsession with taking photographs.

I posted this at 1:30 am, Indigo editing is NOT responsible for any mistakes :) they were very much asleep when I finally finished.

[47] Mr. Snarlsnacks

Note: Proper spelling and grammar in this edition provided by Miss Ali of Indigo Editing, who was fed up with my lack of editing skills.

Special thanks this week to Howard and Camille for posing, Nancy for the wonderful cookies, and
Helena for playing the part of Mr. Snarlsnacks.

[45] The secret life of ladders

Note: It's really too bad blogger won't let me post this all as one image at full size.

OMG! Someone stole the photographs for today! Well, I'm actually just completely zonked. I was planning to do this comic as a series of staged photos but this week has been less than pleasurable. Thankfully it's all done and tonight I can sleep for hours and hours. So, without further adu, I think I'll do that. Photos back next week!

I Love you kitty.

[39] Nonspecific phrases bother me.

They said you were gone. They could have saved me some trouble by specifying for a walk.
Note: Click on images to enlarge

Woo! Alt text! Finally! Too many exclamation marks! So, I'm trying to standardize the presentation of SB a bit, in preparation for the new site switch-over. Let me know what you think.

[38] My LHC comic (late, sorry)

Chances that tea and a nice
sit down will destroy the earth?
..Why is my tea swirling like that?

Note: Click on images to enlarge.

I feel like I should give a nod to since I kinda stole their name. Also. Heres some interesting information about the LHC from Cosmic Variance. I just wish they sighted their sources on those probabilities.

If anyone can figure out what is fake about this photo I'll give you a free DRAMA BUNNY tee-shirt! (people who are IN the photo will probably get one anyway and therefore are disqualified) [drama bunny teeshirt design will be forthcoming]

[33] Blatant theft

Remember, the "mouth" is asmall thermal exhaust port,
not much bigger than a womp rat.

This is of course a complete rip-off of the Yelling Bird. Thanks Jeph, I promise I'll pay you back some day... you know, if we ever meet.

I've been in San Diego all week and didn't have much time to work. I know, I know. one post a week really shouldn't be that hard, But I'm easily distracted by shiny objects!

Guest writing next week from our old friend MSH!

[30] Taken at face value

It was a costume party,
I wished for the government to go away,
No wonder his costume was so good.

Note: Click on images to enlarge.

I walked into my bedroom tonight and ran into a spider web. It was icky but I shrugged it off. I figured it was some tiny spider just going from place to place. I kept thinking i felt something crawling on me though. About an hour later when I was sitting on my bed with all the lights off working on this post.. A HUGE F*#$ING SPIDER crawled across my screen. It was on my BED. It was wandering around on my laptop for god knows how long. IT MIGHT HAVE EVEN BEEN IN MY HAIR THAT WHOLE TIME!!!!!! Now I'll never get to sleep. *twitch*

I needed more words this time so I did my own version of Joey's style. As usual, you should check his comic out! If you want to give jinx a pat on the head before he takes his trip, give me a call. I promise to answer the phone.

I waited as long as I could,
You never came back.

Hey everyone. I hope you enjoyed Andrew's flash-fiction last week. I was up until 4am last Sunday cleaning the house. (not fun). The kitty is really sick too. But things are starting to calm down. I'm still saying end of July for web site redesign. Also, check out Owlsoup for info on my upcoming summer movie series (if you live in Portland)

The Message

If you ever, in forty years’ time, living alone in that tree without anyone to speak to, ever doubted for the briefest moment whether I’d forgotten you...

They’ll be here soon. They may approach with torches and screaming for my blood, or send a few of the bigger men, barefooted with rope. They’ll lash me to the base of the Great Tree, and everyone will gather at dawn and...

I'm selling my house as some of you know. I *promise* the site will improve once that's taken care of. Meanwhile, enjoy the photo.

[22] Save Yourself.

Note: Click on images to enlarge.

Lovely readers, I'm sorry the text on this image is so hard to read. Never fear, something is being done to fix this problem. I've decided that it's time for SkidmoreBluffs.Net to move on from blogger. In the next month I hope to get a more comic-esque site put together. I'll probably steal some elements from a softer world. I might also steal a bit from Randal. I'd have it done sooner except my house is going on the market in 3 weeks and there is still a *crap-ton* of work to do.

My mother told me not to hold out for perfection.

She was wrong about other things too.

Note: Click on images to enlarge.
(She also said that cheese cake was gross.)

Hey everyone. I have no computer until Tuesday. Please forgive me for the less than exciting images from the last two weeks. All the photos I really wanted to use required some photoshop work which I can't do on this crappy dell that I stole from the trash pile at work. I promise a really sweet photo next week provided the sun holds up.

Blame Iron Man

Oh no! It's monday morning and theres no post. I got home last night at 12:30am after seeing Iron Man. It was really good. Go see it. I have the post for today sitting here on my laptop but some editing is required. I'll get it posted at lunch time.

Also, you can now get to this site by going to You may have noticed the name change at the top of the page. This is in preparation for an upcoming serial story. So keep watching!

"..because you work here. They pay you to be nice to me."

"I wish there was a universal signal for I'm not this nice to just anyone."

Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking that handing change back with your middle and ring fingers crossed. Of course, a good old wink would probably do the trick too.

The six of us will stand together and watch the river rise...

...and no one will be alone.

I got some great stories this week. Thanks to everyone who put up with my camera. You can see the photos that I didn't use on my flickr page. Theres a link over there. If you don't see yourself there, I might be saving the photo for a slow week.

Also, I'm thinking about buying a domain name for this little project. is taken. So I'm looking for name suggestions. It should reflect how the art here makes you feel. You can post your ideas here without having an account, just choose "name/url."

Some Ideas I have are: SkidmoreBluffs RememberTomorrow BrokenFixed

I dreamt that we were together again.

I was just inches from you when the phone rang.
My roommate wanted to know if we needed milk.

My sister reads this photograph episodic (new term I'm playing with) and mentioned to me that she was worried about my depression. I laughed out loud. Remember folks, I'm an artist. Don't try this at home.

I took quite a few good photos this week and under some strange circumstances. Thanks to Hostile Tapeover and Tega for this one. Also, thanks to the girl who posed for me on the roof of the car park. I can't remember your name but I hope you had a good time shopping afterward. I'll post the raw images from that shoot on my flickr page sometime this week. They didn't turn out quite how I wanted.
