Life changes. (The full-color version is on its way.)
It’s true; my family’s relocating to the state of Utah, and the trailer leaves this Monday. This is the main reason for the extended six-month comic hiatus and unexpected three-month sketch hiatus the site recently experienced. Had my junior year started as I’d hoped, I might have had more new content for you guys to enjoy. But being burdened by the new cross country season, difficult classes, and (especially) the move took its toll on me, and I wasn’t able to get anything done until fairly recently.
Unfortunately, ending my career at SHS also means turning in my nifty school-issued laptop/tablet–this time for good. That doesn’t mean the end of the strip, though. While you should expect another (short) hiatus while I’m finding and purchasing my next drawing tablet, I still have plans for “Shenanigans: A Life”, and Dustlander Productions isn’t going anywhere.
I can’t thank all of you readers enough for the support you’ve given me over the years. I don’t have much to show for it, but making these few webcomics has really changed me. Here’s to many more years of cartoony goodness. Oh, and check out my Patreon.
This is my real name.
Funny story: this exact scenario happened to me whilst drawing this comic. It took all of my dignity not to show the person the comic and the irony of the situation.
In other news: I met my goal of finishing the comic by the end of May, and DeviantArt is now blocked on my school computer! So the DA users will have to wait a bit before this one gets posted.
What better way to celebrate 10 “Shenanigans: A Life” comics, my own birthday and the website’s birthday (both of which to be celebrated next month) than with a guest comic? As you might imagine, Cal drew it this time around. Trust me, he is way better at drawing than this. He just doesn’t do it as much as me.
He wasn’t recording or anything, so unfortunately that means no time-lapse this time around. Be sure to watch the last one, though!
We were a mere two months short of being ’90s kids…
Happy New Year, everyone! That’s all.
Don’t worry, that’s just whiteboard graffiti on the right.
I’d write more, but I’ll save most of the cool trivia about this comic for the “surprise” I mentioned in “More Caricatures!“. I hope you’re as hyped for it as I am!
Well, now you all know where I live.
Apologies for the lateness! I’ve had a lot going on, from school to cross country to even figuring out my URL situation (https://dustlander.com/ is still being blocked by my school… shoutout to our tech support team!). Here’s hoping I’ll get my act together and actually draw more soon!

Oh, shoot, forget the quirky one-liner description. All I’ve got to say is, WE’RE BACK!!
That, and I also have a few announcements!
- You read the website’s name above right. The URL’s finally changing to just plain dustlander.com! I’m still working out the kinks and the URL is actually blocked on my school computer, but it’ll all be sorted out in a couple days.
- Expect comics more frequently than last year! This time I’m starting the comic from the beginning of the school year, so that’s, like, ten times more comics than you guys are used to! Or something.
- EDIT: Enjoy the new, even more touched-up versions of this comic on all the websites I post on! I’m finally satisfied with the quality of each comic, so I’ll be working on the next one shortly.
Huh. That’s it. Here’s to a great year!
“Hold on. Is that LEAD paint?!”
For those of you who don’t know, “Shenanigans: A Life” has made its way to the webcomic community of Tapastic! Click here to visit the site and see SaL among some of the best webcomics out there.
Depends on your definition of “crazy”…
I’m experimenting with some new backgrounds–simpler ones that are easier to draw and don’t draw as much of the eye’s attention. Did I do well? Tell me what you think in the comments, and don’t be afraid to like or follow the blog while you’re at it!
Unfortunately, I do not own one of these badges in real life.
I’ve replaced the image in this comic with the higher-quality one previously on its own page. Now you can enjoy Art’s dazzling sunglasses and badge in pixel-perfect Normal Definition!
