Hey all. I know, itâ€™s been a while since Iâ€™ve posted anything. Iâ€™ve been busy with a million different projects, it seems. I canâ€™t stay away from Taking Up Space, though.

We’ve got eight zillion social networking sites and apps all vying for our attention, connecting us to strangers around the world, and it’s a great thing. This is an age of instant and ideas and make no mistake, it’s nothing short of magical.
But how much of this comes at the expense of our connections to those around us?

I return from a hiatus with perhaps my most cynical comic yet.
I suppose there wouldnâ€™t be much of a market for REALISTIC romance novels. Well, if her books donâ€™t do well, thereâ€™s always greeting cards.
Thanks to everybody who posted comments on here. I appreciate it. If you enjoy Taking Up Space, please tweet it at Twitter and let others know.

I need a few â€œSunday-sizedâ€ strips for my syndication pack. I decided I would kick off with one of my favorite Taking Up Space strips, which was originally drawn as a very cramped four panel comic.
I love Bobbyâ€™s logic in this comic, it sums up both he and the strip very well.
Problem is, Iâ€™m not sure if the average person thinks like this, that they must open a â€œgood fortuneâ€ if they opened one they didnâ€™t like.

Sometimes these comics are more autobiographical than I should admit.
My wife makes me wear tape over my mouth whenever we watch game shows. Or most TV for that matter.

This is a new comic.
I had this memory of my original Burger Shack comics, being really funny. Well, I went back and re-read the early ones (written in 2002) and well, they werenâ€™t as funny as I remember. So, I ditched them and wrote this one instead.
Funny how the memory works like that. Things you thought were great were less than.

Here is a new Todd and Penguin comic. Taking Up Space will return Wednesday.
Yes, there are such things a pancakes in a can.
Yes, I bought them.
Yes, I am that lazy.

This was one of the first storylines back when the strip made its debut in The Stanford Daily in 2002. Itâ€™s also one ofÂ my favorites and perhaps the best balance of the caustic rants of Jessika and the innocence of Alexander Rabbit. This would be the second time Iâ€™ve redrawn this strip, each time making it a little better.
And yes, the initials for Burger Shack serve dual meaning. Subtle, eh?

This is one of the new comics which I did to introduce the fact that Bobby and Jessika are brother and sister. Of all the new comics, this is the one I am least confident in. I hope itâ€™s not as bad as I think it is as it will be the second strip the syndicates see. Well, unless I get an overwhelming amount of comments or email telling me to lose this comic.
