That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve decided to embrace the inevitable and start making fan service. I know many of you have been looking at a certain character and thinking to yourself “gee whiz, this is the sexiest character I’ve ever seen! I wish the artist would get cheekier with the art!” Well your hopes and dreams are about to be realized! Behold…. THE SEXIEST PINUP DRAWING OF ALL TIME!!
Sometimes moving forward hurts a little 😉
Hey there, ladies and gents! I just wanted to give you all a little tease of the stuff I’m working on for the patreon page. This is the undersketch for the monthly pinup drawing of Alyssa, the full color version turned out great! These pinups aren’t too racy, just good old fashioned classic style pinups. Each month she’ll have a new pose, a new costume and other furry members of our little family will be featured. Who knows, you might even see me in there sometimes! 😉
Don’t worry, there will definitely be a comic this week. I’m not gonna leave you all hanging two weeks in a row!

Hey there, everybody! Just making a little update here to keep you all in the know about Awkward Love. I’ve been focusing on a few things that are pretty big over here, one of which is a AAA Hard Science Space Dogfighter video game that will hopefully be seeing some light in a month or two. You can read a few small details here! I’ve been the lead UI designer on the game for about 2 years and since we’re about to start hitting the gas on the project I’ve been pretty busy. Toss a heavy load of other freelance projects, a teaching position at Rutgers University and a full time job on the pile and my brain is never too far away from a meltdown! It’s all work I adore, but it can sometimes get in the way of these comics.
Because of this, I’ve made two decisions.
1. I will be redesigning the site once again to make it a little more exciting. Nothing terribly huge like the last redesign, but still something good…. beacuse…
2. I have made a Patreon account! If I can remove that “heavy load of freelance projects” from my days I will be able to go CRAZY with Awkward Love. I never wanted to ask my readers for money outright, but as life keeps getting in the way I am beginning to realize why this is so common among web comics. I’ve got big things in the works including more additions to the “Beginnings” comics showing how I met Alyssa, more “Singles” one panel gags and a huge Awkward Love spin off comic!! The link to my Patreon is right here. Or you can click on my little ad right here!:
Anyone who can help support this comic will be my hero. It’s been a long time dream of mine to do something like this and I’ve already come so much further than I ever thought I would. I’m so proud of this project and even more than that, I’m overjoyed that these little gags make you all smile a little every week (or so).
I’ll be focusing on making the Patreon page look better and sprucing up the site this weekend so no comic tonight. Thanks endlessly for the support, and as always, I love my readers!

When you’re with the person you love, you never struggle alone. Thanks for your support and care all these years, Alyssa. You’re more than I deserve.
A colleague of mine posted a link that got me thinking. Figured I’d toss a picture on those thoughts and get something published early this week I’d LOVE to hear all of your thoughts on this, it’s a great spring board for philosophical conversation!
Hey there, everyone! Just making sure I reach out to you all and let you know I’ll be late posting again. Things have been really tough at the office, and with all the other work I do on the side I’ve been pretty strapped for Awkward Love time
Here’s a little rundown of everything on my plate just to give you all a good idea and explain why I’m not always hitting my mark:
First I have a full time job making small games for which I have a rather long commute. Once that part of the day is over I have three hefty freelance clients and a major game title I’ve been working on for the last 2 years (I’ll be posting details here when we start our Kickstarter campaign! 😀 ) And FINALLY, I also teach at a local university here in Jersey. Teaching and Awkward Love are the two things that really brighten my life, but unfortunately only one of them helps put food on the table. Until Awkward Love starts earning a little money I will be forced to put my deadlines on the back burner when deadlines and student issues get heavy. I never intended to use this comic as a revenue source but as many artists know, to make a real living with art one must work very very hard and the fun stuff often ends up on the shelf.
I am DETERMINED to make this strip the long lasting reliable source of laughs and smiles I have been trying to make it, but until I can find that right balance between work and passion, I will unfortunately miss the occasional Friday
You folks, my readers, are very important to me. Every time I get a comment on a strip, or a suggestion or joke on Reddit, it really makes my day. Eventually I would love to hear from my readers a LOT more. I want to get to know all of you, I’d love to know if my comics brighten your days like they do mine! Talking with the people who read these strips really fills me up with fuel for the next comic!
So thank you all for the patience and the good vibes. I hope to hear from some of you, get your thoughts on the direction of Awkward Love and hear suggestions for making space for comic art time in my life. You’re all the life-blood of this endeavor!
