I quit (kinda)!

I’ve been thinking about it for awhile, and I have a lot of good reasons: I’m not having fun anymore, three times a week is too often, I’m not really all that funny, I’m not that much of an artist, my mom is starting to understand too much math because of this comic, etc. So for now, I’ve decided to let my Brown Sharpie pursue other hobbies while I focus on things that make me happy (like grad school! and beer! and fuzzy kitties!).

What does this mean for you, dear reader? Well, I’ll keep the site up indefinitely. When I think of a joke that I just have to share, I’ll throw it here. Guest artist submissions are still encouraged. Caption contests may occasionally happen. I’m open to doing some stuff–for free, for commission; make me an offer. I might rework some of my older favorites to make them more artistic. I’m thinking of putting all the comics into a book. I’ll still sell stuff via cafepress. And one day, I might decide to do this three times a week again. You never know!

If you want to keep abreast of the sporadic updates, I suggest that you subscribe via RSS.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for being huge, wonderful, fantastic, immensely attractive, mathematically-savvy geeks!

If you’re at the Joint Meetings in San Francisco, be sure to say “Hi!” I’ll be the nerdy mathematician…
(seriously, though; say “Hi” and I’ll draw you a doodle! Or leave me a message on the old school message board and I’ll draw you a doodle. F*** it, I’m just gonna draw you a doodle. Come find me to get it.)
