Hey Internet Buddies,
Today is my birthday, and also marks one year since I made Something Terrible available online. If you would do one thing for me today, please share these links with your friends, family, and followers.

I know it seems like a small thing, but this year has been both the most amazing and most challenging one of my entire life, and one thing 33 taught me is that when you share a story of recovery to any group of people, you’re going to end up finding someone who needs it badly.
Thanks for all your support, patience, and kind words this year, and I can’t wait to show you what my son and I are cooking up for the next one. Hugs and capes from Trippe HQ!

Happy Birthday, Dean!

All Hands on Deck!

I did the artwork for a new pirate-themed card game that just launched a Kickstarter campaign (appropriately enough on “Talk Like a Pirate Day”).

If you like family-friendly card games and my artwork then be sure to check it out. If they don’t reach the stretch goal of having the metal coins based on my design made, I’m going to be very disappointed.

Sketch Card Commissions
I’m doing 5 sketch card commissions for people who pledge at the $45 dollar level of the Hero Happy Hour Kickstarter.  On top of a mini original piece of my art, you also get the HHH print collection and a bunch of other cool swag: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/geekpunk/hero-happy-hour-on-the-rocks-graphic-novel

My friend Dan Taylor has a Kickstarter going right now to get his Webcomic Hero Happy Hour back in print as a graphic novel.  If you like superheroes, drinking, and comedy, I recommend checking it out.
I drew Guardian, one of the bar’s regulars.
