Dear SNOTM readers and fans, I am very much alive... I've just not been drawing many comics because Iris and I have been traveling a lot lately. We spent a few months in Spain visiting my family and walking the Camino de Santiago (by the way, it was awesome). As of now, our current residence is in Sao Paulo, Brazil... and I think we'll be staying here for a few years. I don't know if new comics will come anytime soon.
Starving Artist RecipesI used to live in Seattle and one of the big things I miss about that city is Tom Douglas’s Serious Pie restaurant. It is seriously intense, with their stone-encased applewood burning ovens, exclusive charcuterie, and artisan cheeses. But my fav is their Yukon Gold Potato with Rosemary and Pecorino Romano Pizza. While flights from LA to Seattle aren’t super expensive, making this pizza (or as close to it as possible) is a better alternative.15 Things Highly Confident People Don't DoHighly confident people believe in their ability to achieve.

The Future Of Collaboration Is About Looking BackwardsThere is a fascinating thing happening in today’s world of work. Employees are drowning in technology, yet they want more and better devices and applications to do their jobs. At the same time, millennial workers, whom we all assume are the most enthusiastic about technology, are expressing a desire for more human, face-to-face interaction while also lobbying for more effective collaboration and productivity solutions. Organizations would be making a mistake if they overlook this "weak signal" of an emerging culture shift. In the late 1960s, Dr. Ed Lindaman was the director of program planning for Apollo, working for North American Rockwell (formerly North American Aviation).How To Waste Time Properly - Issue 7: WasteEver since Frederick Winslow Taylor timed the exact number of seconds that Bethlehem Steel workers took to push shovels into a load of iron ore and then draw them out, maximizing time efficiency has been a holy grail of the American workplace. But psychologists and neuroscientists are showing us the limits of this attitude: Wasting time, they say, can make you more creative. Even seemingly meaningless activities such as watching cat videos on YouTube may help you solve math problems.
