Workin' on a new comic.
Mer-Bot | A Tale About A Robot I’m working on a new comic that will begin on Monday, May 4, 2015, and update each Monday until it’s done. The site went up at midnight this morning, but it only had...

I've missed working in vector. I draw all my comics entirely in Photoshop, and my recent illustrations have been done that way as well. Finding these sketches on my backup drive has got me charged up to make stuff in vector again.
Vector Sketches Some vector stuff I made ages ago that I found on my backup hard drive.

The weather is nicer. The days are longer. The moods are better. I've started riding my bike on long-distance leisure rides again. (About bloody time!) 27.4 km (17 mi) on Wednesday, and 48.6 km (30 mi) today. My body aches from the sudden increase in physical activity, but I'm happy to be spending time away from the computer.

Since I don't have a camera, I can't document my rides in pictures. Instead, I'm taking screen caps of my route on Google Maps. Still using the old Google Maps because the "new" one can't (for some insane reason) display bike routes and terrain at the same time. However, the old one can.

I'm documenting my rides on a new Twitter feed. Follow if you like. Or don't. It's all about me and my bike anyway.

The photo is from a 2013 ride up Highway 242 to Mckenzie Pass. The road was closed to vehicular traffic, but open to bikes and hikers. So cool!

I'm not here very often. But if you're interested in keeping up with me and/or my work, you can do so at these sites:

ellejohara.com/threads - my comic
gumroad.com/ellejohara - my online shop
twitter.com/ellejohara - my twitter (most lively!)
ellejohara.tumblr.com - my art tumblr
jewelofterceira.tumblr.com - my art inspiration tumblr

Sometimes I'll reblog here things I post at those sites. Otherwise, I'm just here to stay connected to folks I know here, and to use the hangout feature every once in a while.

My Avatar universe persona. Southern Water Tribe non-bender who gets airbending after the Harmonic Convergence.
Imagine her surprise, this non-bender Water Tribe gal from the south, when she discovers one day that she’s an airbender.

I took the "What Animal Are You" Earth Day quiz on Google, and this is what I got. I'm okay with this. Could be more giant, though.

I have comics for sale at my Gumroad store. They are in PDF and CBZ formats (except for one of them which is only PDF). Pay at least the minimum, or more if you like, to download a copy.
The Potato Drinkers is a story about humanism, curiosity, and adventure. After a storm changes her world forever, Jemma of Birchvale sets out on a quest to find the answers to her questions about life.This book was my first attempt at completing a 24-hour comic. I did not succeed in 24 hours, but I liked the story enough to see the book through to completion.This title is formatted in both PDF and CBZ files. 30 pages.

I miss my Instagram. You have to have a phone to do Instagram, and I don't have a phone anymore. Ages ago, I took apart my HTC phone (that was locked in to Virgin Mobile) to see if I could find a way to swap out the SIM card. Well, no such luck. I tore apart my phone learning that locked phones really are quite locked.

I would document my bike rides on Instagram. So it's basically just a bunch of old-timey photos of my bicycle in various locations.

Just some random, slightly intoxicated thoughts.

Hi, Ploogle! Miss me?

I've only had a smart phone for about five months, so it's pretty fresh and new to me, still. I don't really use it for anything I didn't already use a laptop/tablet PC for, though.

My Patreon page is done, but I still have a subscription option for my comic at my Gumroad store. See Threads pages as I finish them for $2/month (or more, if you like). At this writing, page 90 is on the site, but I'm up to page 96 in the store.
Want to see Threads comic pages as I finish them, rather than wait until they publish? Then this is the place to see them. For a mere two bucks a month, you'll have access to every page of Threads (starting with chapter three) as I complete them. Whee!Pages from the preview will be removed as they are published on the main comic site. When the chapter is complete, all pages will become available as a separate PDF download. (Subscribers will be ab...
