Honey, I’m Home! Stacy bellows as the door creaks open eerily. It is pitch black. A creepy hissing sound is heard emerging from the darkness. “Ryan, are you there?” Stacy enters warily. She notices a strange smell that is like a mix of stale cheese fries and old onions…The hissing sound grows louder. “What is going on here?” Stacy turns on the lights, and a dark figure with hair standing on end let’s out a large hiss! Haha. Yes, if you were wondering, that is Ryan in comic form, hissing at the sudden flash of bright lights. “Who is this intruder,” he thinks? Ah my– Time can do so much, it seems. Isolation is indeed, difficult for some. To all you out there who have to self isolate, stay strong, and stay connected.

My precious…. Oh oh– some one has let out their inner Gollum. 😮 Today’s comic is aptly entitled, “Precious.” Ryan passes by a mirror in a daze. A voice calls out to him– and GASP! it is a shadow version of himself! The shadow goats Ryan into feeling abandoned– He argues back but the shadow has a trick up it’s sleeve. He found a new precious-zis…one that will stay with them, forever! Haha. Yes it is a mop with googly eyes on it– but also, she baked cookies! Ryan in a hypnotized and hungered state, zombies towards the fantasy– his new “precious” awaits…
Ah my– being alone can be rough. I do not envy long distance relationships. Nothing against them either, but it takes a strong will to be alone. I dare say, it’s a valuable skill!
So that’s it for this week’s LWS comic. If you liked it, then check out my other strips. Or bid on one of my ad spaces over on COMICAD NETWORK. Better yet– Head on over to my PATREON and check out my full color pages. Not only do you get fullcolored pages of all my newest comics, you’ll also get re-colors of my older strips. Also, for a higher tier, stay ahead of the pack by seeing 1 week’s comic in advance (1 comic ahead of what’s on my website)! Neat! So if you’re a LWS fan, please support me, it goes a long way! 🙂
New LWS Comic comin’ at ya called “Being Alone.” Ryan contemplates the positive aspects of being alone while gazing out his apartment window. To his credit, it seems he did come up with a couple of good points… like the birds chirping. That’s a good one. And uh…I’m sure there are others. Haha. But staring into the infinite void is probably not one of them. Best to avoid void staring in general, as to not awaken your inner somberness.
In other news, I think I will be adding my colored comics to my PATREON account only, so I actually have something to post there. Coloring is good practice and doesn’t take too much more time for me, so expect to see all colored version of the my newest Living With Stacy comic strips on my PATREONin the near future.
Hold it together Ryan, just hold it together. Haha. I hope you liked this week’s comic. Ryan gets the sudden urge to watch some Netflix (minus the chill) and asks Stacy what she wants to watch. Either Army of the Dead or Marriage Story. Both really good movies. The problem is, Ryan forgot that Stacy is gone on her internship for 6 months– meaning he just spoke to nobody… :p.
When you’re so used to someone being around it can be tough to be by yourself. Don’t sweat the small stuff. And it has been proven that talking to yourself is healthy. Haha. The look on Ryan’s face however, is priceless– I don’t think he meant to talk to himself…
Alternatively, I have another version of the comic that shows Ryan coping with Stacy being gone a lot better. This one shows that if you have animals you’re not truly alone.
Anyways, that’s it for today’s LWS comic strip. If you like it, then please like, share and subscribe to my Facebook and Twitterfeeds. 🙂
Hey LWS fans, I have a new LWS comic out today called “Precious Moments.” Animal lovers know what I’m talking about. Sometimes if you ever feel alone, your cute dog or cat will come over and pay some much needed attention to you. In those moments you can’t help but feel loved, and you just want to pick them up and give them a big hug. Or in this case, dance with your cat.
Our cat Tori loves to dance. She gets swung around, and then clings to your shoulder purring with glee. And just when your love meter is almost full, your cat let’s out a super sneeze right in your face. Haha. :p Happens to the best of us. Cats sneeze like a shotgun, boom, no time to react. But you still love them just the same. Ha.
Anyways, that’s it for this weeks comic. If you liked Precious Moments then please check out my other ones by hitting the back arrows. Have a happy weekend! 🙂
New comic up today called “Somber Thoughts.” Ha, this one is for all of you who have a lovely dark sense of humor. I often find intrusive thoughts come at any time, and humor is a good way to diffuse such compulsive thoughts.
As you may know, Stacy is off on her 6 month internship. That leaves her significant other all alone to fend for himself. That wouldn’t be so bad, if it weren’t also for the ongoing pandemic and the current lockdown. Lockdowns are hard on all of us and everyone has a different way to cope. Humor is one way. And exercise is another– if you can bring yourself to do it. Haha. For all of you in lockdown currently, stay strong, and full of energy and humor. Don’t sweat the weird or somber thoughts, that’s completely normal, but don’t dwell on them either. Have a happy lockdown everyone. 🙂
Welcome LWS fans, I have another new LWS Comic for you called “The Internship.” Stacy’s on her new journey to learn permaculture! And on her first few days there, she is…well shoveling crap. Haha. A natural farming practice. However, we see that Stacy would rather shovel Frank the Goat’s crap, than deal with people’s crap as a customer service rep at the office. A sentiment that I feel a lot of your might relate to. 😀
In other news, but related to this, I plan on doing a full series based on Stacy’s Internship. This will not be happening soon though, and will be only available (most likely) in a book format and on my Patreon. As far as the online comics are concerned, Stacy and Ryan will be back annoying and loving each other very soon. 🙂
Hey y’all, and welcome to the latest LWS comic strip called “A True Sagittarius.” That’s right, Stacy is in full on Sagittarius mode– First quitting her job out of the blue, and then signing up for a six month perma-culture internship without telling anyone. On top of that, she was accepted and is leaving TOMORROW! Haha. No issues there at all right? Well technically, no– as it’s all good news! What gumption, some might even say! But it is also good to let your loved ones know of such important decisions before hand. At least that’s what’s going through Ryan’s head in the last panel. Haha. :p
Anyways, A True Sagittarius and along with the Stacy at the office arc/series has been a blast to write and draw. If any of it is relatable to you, please like and share with your friends and family. Have yourselves a happy weekend! 🙂
Well here is another LWS comic for you “Out of the Blue.” Haha. Stacy arrives home from work with a sigh. “Hunny, I’m home.” Ryan smiles, “How was work?” “Great!” Stacy replies as she prances past Ryan happily. “I QUIT.” :0
Yes, Stacy after one of the worst days on the job, has pulled a Sagittarius and quit her stifling, petty, low frequency job, out of the blue. And boy does it feel good. Ryan on the other hand…hasn’t quite had the time to process such a, ahem, important decision.
Guys and gals, if you live with a Sag, be ready to be spontaneously surprised a lot of the time. Speaking of Sagittarians, I might do a series of jokes about star signs….you know all that fun meme stuff. We shall see. In any case, Stacy is ready for a new chapter of her professional career…whatever that may be. So if you liked Out of the Blue, check out my other Living With Stacy comics. Cheerio!
A smile a day keeps the blues away! Or at least, that’s insightful quip that some rando guy decided to bestow upon Stacy. Yikes. Stacy is having one rough day at the office and to get told to “smile” is not only a bit sexist (cuz let’s face it, when do gals tell guys to smile more?), but also completely unsolicited. Now on the flip-side, smiling does release endorphins, it is a proven fact. But being “told” to smile, doesn’t quite have the same impact. :p So yeah, only smile if you feel like it, please and thank you. As for Stacy, well it seems like the comment had the opposite affect. Haha. Oh my.
Anyways, that’s it for this week’s Living With Stacy comic. If you liked “A Smile a Day” then check out Stacy’s other office adventure strips.
Hello, and welcome to the official Living With Stacy website! You may be wondering what this Living With Stacy comic is all about. Well allow me to shed some light on the subject. Living with Stacy is a modern, slice of life, comedy comic about the everyday routines and struggles of a happy, young couple living with OCD. Join Ryan and Stacy (and their two cats) as they attempt to comfortably coexist, love each other and push through life in hilarious and relatable ways! To quote some random awesome guy on the internet, "LWS is cute, adorable and fun for everyone, even your cats!" Wow, thanks random awesome guy!
The creator of LWS wants to show you that having OCD, or a partner with OCD isn't the end of the world. While dating someone with obsessive compulsive disorder does provide some unique (and occasionally funny) challenges, it can also be normal, loving and warm, just like any other healthy relationship. :)
Living With Stacy is now being printed in the Advance, a local newspaper from my hometown. The Advance is a faction of TC Media which publishes papers across Canada. Anywhere from Halifax, Nova Scotia right to Vancouver, BC. I'm super excited to be a part of it. Keep an eye out for LWS strips in your local newspaper and of course, please continue to enjoy the comic on my website.
Living With Stacy, or LWS for short, updates every Saturday so come back often to lol at the latest strips! To learn more about LWS please check out the About Section. If you're interested in Flapjack Studios' other comic works you can check out Rankless the Comic and its Comic Archive.
