RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


February 22nd, 2008: A few people emailed me about Jess Fink's art theft story (see below!) saying that yeah, it looked bad, but what about Natalie Dee's comic here? I think that's actually a good example of an important difference. Natalie and Jess both came up with the idea of "soap talking about washing butts", and I think there's room on the planet for two riffs on that idea.

That's different from Hot Topic's shirt, which is both the same idea and the same realization of the idea: same soap, same improbable colour, same position, same body. One is two people thinking in parallel lines, while the other is one person copying another.

Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!

One year ago today: Did you know, dear friends, that a "royal flush" can beat a "two of a kind" on the strength of the cards alone?
