Who are Hope & Harry?


Hope and Harry is a semi-autobiographical comic about my family. Hope is a lot like me, except probably better, kinder, and more patient. Harry is a lot like my husband, except not quite as funny or good looking. Hope and Harry have two daughters and a cat just like my husband and I do, and many of the things that happen to them are based loosely on things that actually happen to our kids, their friends, our family friends or more often than I would like to admit, just made up by our family over dinner.

Hope and Harry is a comic that really celebrates the lives of families and the funny and strange things that happen to them. It’s all about busy schedules, unpredictable pets, unexpected catastrophes and the world of children’s imagination. I hope you will stop by for a coffee and a cookie and be ready to listen to Claire and Piper tell you all about their latest adventure.


Yes!  the transformation is complete.  I have allowed the kids to grow up into teens pretty much overnight.  It's not so obvious with Piper, but Claire has moved from 8 to 15 in pretty short order.  Also, Hope and Harry are showing their age too.  A little more wrinkly, a few grey hairs, and Harry is tired today!

This is also showing an evolution in my practice.  I'm doing more of the artwork in Procreate and then importing it back to Clip Studio. I find that I'm more comfortable in Procreate right now and that makes everything go faster.  Maybe when things settle down in December I'll go back and work to familiarize myself with the drawing tools in Clip Studio so I can be faster.

If you like the comic and want to support me consider contributing to my Patreon, or just buying me a cup of coffee.

Patreon supporters get advanced comics and get exclusive content like my new comic "Mornings with Cletus" which is only available there.  Also, Patreon supporters will get to see all the cool stuff I make just for fun, or to sell at places like Comic Expo.
