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.


This weeks it’s the metaphor for Hope’s life.  Sometimes things we think are small obstacles can become huge in a big hurry.

I started this comic when there were leaves on the trees, but it only took a few windy days to strip all the branches and leave us (see what I did there) with new kid trees.  Just in time for SpookyNight.

There won’t be a comic next week as there is a lot of family stuff happening this week and I”m a bit too run down to add the stress of getting a comic out to all the other things that are happening.  But I will be back with comics the next week!

Take care out there in the scary world my friends. Be kind to others and do something to help someone else along.

Hey if you are unhappy about missing the comic next week you should start contributing to my Patreon. I will be posting stuff, drafts of comics, and drawings from the comics class I’m teaching there.  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.
