Took the comic from the earlier post http://boxyheadbry.tumblr.com/post/99551844676/cowthulhu-last-night-half-asleep-while and turned it into a shirt. Necessary, yes.
This one has a thick border around it but you can choose one from the store that doesn’t. For example, if you wanted it on a white shirt. You can also fiddle around with some options such as shirt color and types as well. Zazzle is pretty cool like that.
They may have a sale going on right now too if you catch this before Columbus Day. Input the code “SALETHEOCEAN”
I usually prefer black or gray, but something about it being a cow makes me want it on this color myself. Hwehwehwehwe
Last night: Half asleep while scrolling through my feed, I misread “Juvenile Cuttlefish” as “Bovine Cuttlefish.” Somehow it became this.
I am easily a-moo-sed.
Shirt now available! Hwe hwe hwe.
Started off as a color test piece, and it ended up being an all kinds of things test piece! I like it. Definitely spent some lazy days like this… but with possibly more contortionist reading positions.
I have been working on this piece on and off between work, and I am both pleased and displeased with it. I thought it may be better that I stop and see what happens when I let them be. But certainly (or not), the title reflects my sentiment towards this piece.
Well this funny misunderstanding turned out to be fun to draw nonetheless.
I need to find this Mario Cat game.
Octo-bear take II.
Revisited this… “Shirokuma of the Sea”. Such a majestic beast deserved more than a quick pass. Well, I also just felt like drawing some of my favorite sea creatures. Although, I forgot to put the derpy box-fish. hmm.
Did you know that sharks will go into a sleep like state, or tonic immobility, when flipped upside down? Just learned that a few weeks ago. Wow. Some orcas have actually learned to flip rays (shark cousins) and sharks so they eat ‘em proper. I put my pancake and eggs to sleep before I eat them too.
So there: in honor of Shark Week, that shark is not suffering or dead - just asleep.

It spins a web of nuts. That doesn’t even makes sense.
We all know this dance.
People rushing, always rushing, towards something that they’re afraid to miss out on. Nevermind the elbows to the eyes and the toes to be stepped on.
If they stop pushing others around and instead made way for the their neighbors, maybe the ones who actually are in need - if they start stepping back, saying, “Oh hey… you go on ahead. I can wait,” - we, all of us, may never get what we really want, but at least the line to get there wouldn’t be so uncomfortable. We might actually find that it’s quite pleasant, waiting in line, if we’re all in it together.
Meanwhile, in Octopolis…
More birds in a basket, etc.
1) My spirit animal in the morning. We both wake up with our hair up. That and I like grey.
2) A collared dove? They love to sit in the tiny seed boat. Sometimes, I notice a finch sitting up on the hummingbird feeder while the doves eat below. Is it possible that the finch is keeping watch for the dove?
Also: The finches used to prefer the millet seeds, leaving the sunflower seeds for the big birds like the dove and the occasional western scrub jay. But after running out of millet seeds, they started to eat the sunflower seeds more, and now eat the sunflower seeds first and leave the millet seeds alone. Did they acquire this behavior from the big birds?
Another thing I’m curious about: after setting up my seed buffet, more and more types appear to visit - finches, jays, and doves. Squirrels too! I can understand finches communicating to each other, but how do other species find my buffet? Merely by seeing other birds flock? Inter-species collaboration?
3) Not a hummingbird.
5) Fly trapped
6) Basil growing nicely
7) Imagine if every Starbucks cup was re-purposed as a planter.
I’ve been meaning to migrate my old photo blog into tumbler, and I’m happy I finally did it! (http://boxybryfly.tumblr.com/)
Armed with a new lens, an oiled up bike, and new, secret, Wacom tech, I am ready to attack the free world once again!
After lunch. And maybe when it’s not too hot to bike around in full gear.
