Living With Stacy #142 - Nap

Living With Stacy #142 – Nap

Hey-yo LWS comic fans, I have a new strip today called “Nap.” Ever have a nap soooo good that you wake up thinking you’re still in school? Or that you missed the bus? Or maybe you’ve forgotten to go to work? Then you realize it was all a dream? That’s Ryan in today’s comic. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Luckily, Stacy was there to comfortย  him. Ha.

Naps are something I’m trying to do a lot more lately. I find after 2:00pm is the perfect time for a quick snooze. My dreams during the day time are quite vivid. Hence my back to school dreamland flashback.

Today’s comic “Nap” was inspired by a hilarious meme I saw on the subject of napping. If any of you can relate to this one, feel free to share it with your friends and family.

In other news, LWS books are being prepared to send to donors from my GoFundMe campaign. I don’t plan on shipping most of them, so I’ll need to arrange pick ups or drop offs. That’s why it is taking a bit more time to get everyone their books. I’ll be making the rounds sometime soon, so keep in touch to know when your book is coming.

That’s it for this week. If you liked this week’s comic than you’ll love “Happy Birthday” and “Takeout.”

Living With Stacy #141 - Happy Birthday

Living With Stacy #141 – Happy Birthday

Hey there LWS comic fans, I have a new strip for you called “Happy Birthday.” It’s quite an awesome one if I do say so myself. Not only because it’s really funny, but because it is also my actual birthday. Ha! Yeah, my Saturday comic actually coincided with my real birthday. Neat, huh?

This strip is quite special as it’s Jeanie’s first real debut since her introduction. I hope you all like Jeanie as much as I do. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also had quite the birthday party. Family and friends, BBQ, cake (gluten free of course!) and presents. Oh and some booze, ha. The night was cool and the fire was warm. It was a good time. Special thanks to my folks for arranging it.

And that’s not all! Tonight is my book signing for Volume one of Living With Stacy! If you’re around town, stop by the Natural Grind at 7:00pm this evening to snag a signed copy of the book. Hope to see you there!

If you liked this weeks kitty comic than you’ll love my other kitty comics like “figure of speech” or “stinky kitty.”

Living With Stacy #136 - Stinky Kitty

Living With Stacy #136 – Stinky Kitty

Well hello again my fine LWS comic fans, I have a new strip for you called “Stinky Kitty.” As you may know the stinky kitty was in fact Ryan all along. Ryan let’s out a silent but deadly fart under the covers while Stacy reads peacefully. Little does she know that a waft of god-awful gas is headed her way. Suddenly, she coughs and gags at the stench. Panicking, Ryan blames the smell on Tori, claiming she has “farted.” And you know the age old saying “When you toot you get the boot!”

The last panel makes me laugh so much. I’m sure a lot farts get blamed on pets. How convenient, no? Those stinky little wieners. Haha. Always farting. Shame on them. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways, that’s it for this weeks Living with Stacy comic strip. If you like this comic then you’ll love my other hilarious ones like Figure of Speech or The Pimple Popper.

Onto other exciting news. I’m in the process of printing Volume 01 of my Living with Stacy book! Those of you who supported the project will get a book! So look forward to that! I went with a printing company in Canada and I’m excited to get the Test Copy Proof in the mail. I’ll post more about the book soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

Living With Stacy #132 - Figure of Speech

Living With Stacy #132 – Figure of Speech

Hey there LWS comic fans and welcome to another new strip called “Figure of Speech.” Ryan professes his love for cooked chicken, proclaiming his love for it matches nothing else in the whole wide world. Wow, that is quite the statement. Good thing Stacy is 90% sure he’s speaking figuratively. Although, that leaves a 10% chance that it is not a figure of speech. Oh my…haha.

Today’s comic is interesting for two reasons. One, it was a fun one to create and draw, and two I literally came up with two versions of this one. I chose the one above as the definitive version, but I’ll post the other one below for anyone who is curious.

LWS Comic #132 - Alt Version

Neat huh? Not too often I do up two versions of the same strip. But hey, if I do the work and put in the time, might as well share it with you guys. If you liked this comic then you’ll love my last one, “Waiter.”

Anyways, that’s it for this weeks comic strip. Check back again for more new Living With Stacy content! Oh and for anyone who has supported me on my LWS GOFUNDME page, look forward to some news about the book soon.

Living With Stacy #131 – Way Harder

Hey there LWS comic fans and welcome to another new comic strip called “Way Harder.” In this one, Ryan attempts to draw what would be a lovely town scene on a bright sunny day. I say what would be because of Tori and Jeannie, who’s attention seeking knows no limits nor bounds, proceeds to walk all over a nearly completed artwork with inky paws in pursuit of affection. It’s sweet ad also so tragic. Maybe I can get a Wacom Cintiq and avoid such scenarios in the future.

Anyhoo, that’s it for this week’s comic. I hoped you liked “Way Harder.” Even though cats can be a pain sometimes, in the end, they’re worth it. Even if they destroy some fantastic artwork from time to time.

If you liked this week’s comic strip than you’ll love Getting Old. For all my Living With Stacy comics you can also check out the LWS Comic Archive.

Living With Stacy #126 - Let Us In

Living With Stacy #126 – Let Us In

Heyo LWS comic fans and welcome to another new strip called “Let Us In.” Ryan and Stacy attempt to get a good nights sleep after finding their lonely cat Tori a new friend. This new friend is none other than the lovably chonky kitten Jeanie. Well, Jeanie isn’t a kitten anymore. Keh, keh. So how did everything turn out for our married heroes and their sleep endeavors? Haha, well let’s just say, now there are more kitty mouths meowing, “Let us in!”

LWS Comics - Jeanie Color

Anyways this page (Let Us In) marks the end of “New Kitten Story Arc.” Jeanie is officially part of our growing family. Expect to see more of their cat shenanigans in the future. Also, I was thinking of making a few Cats of LWS T-Shirts if anyone was interested. How can you get a hold of one of these precious tees? Well, contact me of course with your size and measurements and I’ll set you up with one. For everyone else, I’ll be making a post about merch in the future.

So that’s it for this week’s LWS comics strip. I hope you enjoyed it. I know I really enjoyed writing and drawing our new feline friends. Also, drawing Stacy frustrated is fun too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Stay tuned for more updates. Have a good weekend!

LWS Comic #125 - Growth Spurt

Living With Stacy #125 – Growth Spurt

Hey Living with Stacy fans, and welcome to another awesome comic called “Growth Spurt.” As the title implies, our new kitten Jeanie goes through quite the time lapsed growth spurt. Now this is an actual true event. Jeanie was in fact the Runt of the Litter, and within a short year, she was bigger than Tori. Tori used to pick on Jeanie quite a lot as a kitten, and as you may have guesses, the tables had turned. You’ll get to see more of Tori and Jeanie shenanigans in future comics. So if you like cats, you’re going to love the LWS kitty duo! I mean, just look at Jeanie! I want her on a T-Shirt (keep an eye out for that update soon).

LWS Comic #125 - Jeanie

LWS Comic Jeanie by Ryan JS Chandler 2019

Today’s comic (LWS #125) is close to ending the new kitty arc. For those of you new readers out there who are just joining in, feel free to read my comic backlog and catch up on current comedy story arcs. The start of this one was comic #118 Let Me In. And if you’re feeling adventurous, why not read my first ever LWS strip Sick starring the infamous Banana. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s it for this week. I hope everyone is enjoying the focus on our two lovely and hilarious cats. Check back for new updates. My stomach is growling, so it’s time to cook some lunch. Until next time.

LWS #124 - Good Example

Living With Stacy #124 – Good Example

Heyo LWS comics fans, and welcome to another new strip called “Good Example.”ย  Tori bullies Jeanie while she attempts to drink from an oversized dish of water. Stacy scolds, “No bullying Jeanie! You have to set a good example, okay?” Tori retorts with another BAP on Jeanie’s head, plunging her into the water dish. Oh Tori…when will you learn that picking on something smaller than you is not nice. Just because Jeanie’s the Runt of the Litter, doesn’t make it okay. And who knows, she may be bigger than you one day…

So that’s it for today’s LWS comic. There are a few more in the “New Kitten” arc. So if you like cats and kitties, stay tuned for more strips. I am encouraged to write more text here and it fills up the space, but I’ve already said what I need to, so now I’m just rambling. I probably only need a few more words and I’ll hit that magic number. In fact, I have four minutes left on my spaghetti, so I guess I have to wrap it up. Stay tuned for the nextย  hilarious LWS comic.

LWS #123 - Battle Mode

Living With Stacy #123 – Battle Mode

Hey there LWS fans and welcome to another hilarious comic on this fine March day called “Battle Mode.” Ryan and Stacy bring their new kitten Jeanie home to see Tori for the first time. How does their old cat react to her new sister? Well, let’s just say that Tori enters her battle mode state as soon as she sees her, essentially this mode is a cat freak out. Haha.

Anyone who has more than one household cat knows how hard it can be to predict how well integrating a new kitten can be. Sometimes it goes great, and sometimes your older cat goes into battle mode. ๐Ÿ™‚ When we first got Jeanie (IRL) Tori was not as kind as we thought she’d be. She was quite jealous and tried to attack the kitten quite often. Eventually, we managed to get them to get along, but yeah, cats- am I right? The story isn’t over yet, more kitten fun is coming your way.

So if you liked this week’s LWS comic you definitely want to check out the previous comics in the Jeanie arc, as they set up for today’s comic and what’s to come. If you ever want to adopt a kitten and live in Nova Scotia, feel free to check out the SPCA website. You may just find the kitten (or cat) of your dreams.

LWS #122 - Peace Offering

Living With Stacy #122 – Peace Offering

Hey there Living With Stacy fans and welcome to another new LWS comic called “Peace Offering.” In today’s comic Ryan is upset that Stacy lied to him about such an important thing. Stacy apologies about the kitten but Ryan quickly retorts that it wasn’t about the kitten, she’s adorable, no…It was about not going to the games store like Stacy promised. Haha.

This comic took me some time to write. I wanted to have Ryan talk with Stacy but also consult with their new kitten. There’s only four panels to work with and so much space. I literally had to clean my living room until the eureka moment when I nailed the dialog in my head. So two great things, the living room is now clean and I have a great new LWS comic for you to enjoy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of enjoying, I did not enjoy breaking my keyboard. It “fell” against my desk and the keys came off and scattered throughout the living room. While cleaning though, I managed to find all the missing keys and snap them back onto my keyboard, thus enabling me to finish my comic. Is there nothing cleaning can’t do?

Anyways, if you liked this week’s comic you should check out the previous two comics called Detour and Runt of the Litter as they are the precursors to today’s comic.
