Insert Life Here: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When is the comic updated?
A: Mondays and Thursdays.

Q: Why did you call the comic “Insert Life Here”?
A: Back when I first started drawing I was as reclusive as one could get at a tech school. The comics were an attempt for me to get out, see the sketchiness of college, and write about it. I tried to, in a sense, “get a life” and used the comics as a backdrop for it. So I put my life here…in the comics. Well that and I thought it sounded kinda cool.

Q: Are the people in your comic real?
A: Yes, every comic is based on real events, with slight exaggerations and altered names. However, the people are real, the events are real, and the hallucinations are real.

Q: Can I meet these people?
A: I wouldn’t recommend it. However, if you go to RIT, you might run into us…or at conventions. Then again, there’s always facebookgroup if you’d like to meet the actual characters.Q: How long does it take to do a comic?
A: About 3-5 hours (depending). I draw the six panels out, scan them in, go over them once in Adobe Illustrator and then color them in Photoshop CS4.

A: Yes, check the Cafepress link.

Q: Where do you go to college?
A: Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY.
