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.


 As a rule of thumb, the metaphors for your life should not be edible. 

Piper is having some full-on adult-sized stress and that's OK.  We all get that sometimes. I am certainly feeling the pressure of stress myself this month, but we almost always come out with a successful outcome, and when we don't at least we learn from it.

I have been so busy lately that I woke up in a full panic thinking that Halloween was this week and I had nothing ready for it. Clearly, my brain is trying to get me to plan ahead, or at least panic early.

How has your October been?

Hey if you are interested in seeing something new you should consider contributing to my Patreon.

I’m starting a new collaboration with a writer friend on a cool sci-fi story and pages will be posted there as I complete them.  Patreon supporters also get advanced comics and get exclusive content like my grown-up 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.

See you there!
