Having spent my entire adult life overseas, I never know what’s foreign culture and what’s just modern day livin’.
Example: Parents driving their children in tiny remote-controlled luxury cars instead of strollers- Is that a Korea thing or a 2010’s thing?

Each Broken Telephone story is a standalone tale of miscommunication, but when read all together, tell one massive tale!

So I just got back from the Arab Film Festival at the Busan Cinema Center, and Hollywood... we have to talk. You are getting your BUTT kicked by the Muslim world when it comes to badass female characters in movies.
I saw two movies, and both of them stomped the Bechdel test into submission with fascinating characters. The woman who defiantly sang while getting 40 lashes... for singing. The woman who strutted through town with a chicken on her shoulder like a parrot calling ISIS assholes to their faces... and the main character of 'I am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced'... who kicked the patriarchy's butt so hard it cried in open court.
Step up your game, Hollywood.

One of my catchphrases, and one of my wife's least favorite phrases is "I found a shortcut!" These diversions are never short, but they do often lead to adventure.

Today, after calling shortcut on a random alleyway, we found a school with a really cool mural around the perimeter. It was Where's Waldoesque, in that there were lots of characters, and the longer you looked, the more of a story it told. It blended traditional styles with modern comic art in a really cool way.

As we reached the unfinished portion of the mural, a Hayao Miyazaki-looking old man on a rooftop shouted down "DO YOU LIKE THE PAINTING?" I shouted back "YES!" Knowing that white beards and explorer hats are the Korean shorthand for artist, I added "DID YOU PAINT IT?" He confirmed, I told him I was an artist as well, and we shouted a conversation for several more minutes... more »

He confirmed, I told him I was an artist as well, and we shouted a conversation for several more minutes until his wife appeared on the rooftop and invited us for coffee.

They've been making art together for 45 years. Jeong Sungoo handles the lineart, his wife is the colorist, and their dog rolls in the paint and looks like a Jackson Pollack painting. We got to hear stories about doing set design for K-dramas in the 70s, doing murals all over the country, doing the talk show rounds, and got serenaded with his hand-made guitar. They even cooked us a massive dinner.

My shortcut turned a 10 minute walk into a 3 hour endeavor. But it was well worth it.___

Oh, hey! Finally, after 2 years of hard work by illustrator +Diana Nock  and editor +C. Spike Trotman  the graphic novel I wrote about how to travel cheap has come out! My goal was to make the anti-Lonely Planet. It works for every country and doesn’t tell you WHAT to see but how to confidently and inexpensively find stuff on your own. I covered everything from how to pack for a weekend trip to how to find an international or location-independent job. Everything I learned over a decade traveling the world making comics. Just 5 bucks for Digital, 10 bucks for print!

I recently wrote a 10 minute play called Dogfish for the Busan International Shakespeare Festival. It’s a comedy about how often Shakespeare’s characters fall in love after reading a fake love letter written by their jerk friends. It is super nerdy, and contains a wide variety of dirty Victorian jokes and cheesy Mtv references. I decided to make the play available under creative commons so that if anyone out there is as dorky as me, they can do whatever they like with it. You can get the script here: http://www.ryanestrada.com/dogfish/Dogfish.pdf

My Nana.
1918-2014.

Leatha Deane was an awesome lady. She lived 96 years, and made every one count. She survived two husbands, brought a whole bunch of supercool daughters into the world, who brought her a whole heap of grandchildren, and the great grandchildren multiplied exponentially. But even with all those offspring, she made a difference to every one of us in ways that changed the lives that we already owed to her. Probably not a day went by that she wasn’t helping someone in her family go to college, get a house, fix a car, get medical treatment- and instilling us a sense of appreciation for what she had because we know the work and sacrifice she put into every penny she shared.

My Nana.
1918-2014.

Leatha Deane was an awesome lady. She lived 96 years, and made every one count. She survived two husbands, brought a whole bunch of supercool daughters into the world, who brought her a whole heap of grandchildren, and the great grandchildren multiplied exponentially. But even with all those offspring, she made a difference to every one of us in ways that changed the lives that we already owed to her. Probably not a day went by that she wasn’t helping someone in her family go to college, get a house, fix a car, get medical treatment- and instilling us a sense of appreciation for what she had because we know the work and sacrifice she put into every penny she shared.

When I was in college, I had the good fortune of being able to play odd couple with my Nana when I moved into an apartment attached to her house. Me, the one so messy and careless I would amass a mountain of disgusting dirty dishes that I would throw away every 6 months instead of washing… and her, the one so intent on making the most of everything she had that I had to sneak into her apartment at night to steal cans of beans that had expired 7 years earlier and throw them away before she ate them.

But living with her, and listening to her stories, I learned to appreciate what I had. Granted, sometimes the lessons drove me crazy… like when I offered to buy new towels to clean her kitchen with and she rushed to her basket of old clothes and made my scrub the floor with my dead grandfather’s used underwear. It was the grossest day of my life, but it was equivalent to making a naughty teen smoke a whole pack of cigarettes. I got the message. Make everything count, make everything matter. From days, to years, to interactions with the people you love, to cans of beans and old pairs of underwear.

I appreciate being able to introduce her to my wife Hyun Sook Kim over the phone. She’d tearfully welcome her to the family every single time, and tell me how happy she was that I found someone to love. But she couldn’t quite grasp the pronunciation of Korean names. We never told her- and every time she was SO PROUD that she’d finally mastered it. And every time, she’d call Hyun Sook something so wildly different from her actual name that it became a new nickname. Shu Tzu, Shee-shu, Chubby Chip, Sunka and Nooka have all become part of our vocabulary.

But as much as I love, respect and honor my Nana, I am going to do something now she wouldn’t like. I am going to tell you her biggest secret. The thing she wanted no one to know. Something that her own family, the people she was closest to still don’t know. A secret she took to her grave.

Leatha Deane was an Everybody Love’s Raymond fan.

I cannot begin to imagine why this was so secret, but it was. I lived just below her. There was no door between us, just a stairwell. And every day at 5:00 I would hear those tennis balls at the bottom of her cane scuff the floor as she walked over to her chair, turned the tv to CBS, watched Everybody Loves Raymond, and laughed at the jokes.
Each of the dozens of times I went upstairs to see her during her show, she would freak out like I’d just caught her watching porn. She’d fumble with the remote and say “oh, I don’t know how this got on, I was just flipping the channels. I don’t watch this show. I can’t get this remote to work. Can you change the channel?” and every time, knowing she wanted to watch it, I would reply “Oh, I like this show. Can I watch it?” And we would watch together.

I’ll miss her. I wish we hadn’t been so far apart so that I could have introduced her to Chubby Chip in person and we could have all watched Everybody Loves Raymond together.___

Here's a comic about two adventurers unwittingly walking through a war zone on their way to the Amazon. It's told as all stories about martial law and drug cartels should be: in whimsical rhyme.

This is the true story of the time I hitchhiked across Korea with the most complicated, weird man I ever met. John was rude, racist and stubborn. He was my friend. Warning: This is a long one.

This comic used to be ebook-only, but now it's free to all thanks to my supporters at www.patreon.com/ryanestrada

This week, a project that’s basically been my full time job for almost 8 months… that I have been working on in some form for almost 8 years… That took the work of 20 different artists from who knows how many countries was finished.

I got to read my book, Broken Telephone, for the first time. And I couldn’t be prouder. I cried in a coffee shop. My collaborators went above and beyond the call of duty. Those tiny thumbnails down there? That’s what it looks like.

(Don’t zoom in too close! Spoilers!)

Everyone who’s seen it has had nothing but kind words. It’s now off to agents and publishers and people who can help me figure out the next step.

I’m so happy and overjoyed to be done, Of course, like an idiot, the second I finished I had to go and start a new webcomic.

In 2008, I made a guest comic about weird fashion subcultures. For the punchline, I made up the most ridiculous fashion subculture I could think of: Normcore.
Now, according to Newsweek, "Normcore has been called the internet meme of 2014."
NY Mag calls it a "Hot new trend."
GQ says "we just hope Normcore is on it's way out."
I'm credited on Urban Dictionary:

and Wordspy:

Apparently, I invented Normcore, you guys. I'm sorry.

This is just like when Alfred Nobel realized he would be remembered for inventing dynamite and quickly made up some awards to make up for it. I have to do something really beneficial to humanity now.

I was a guest on Lean Into Art talking about the importance of taking on projects outside your wheelhouse, and how spoken word, stand up comedy, poetry slams, Shakespeare and radio all helped me become a better cartoonist.

I'll be in a live hangout in about 24 hours, talking about embarking on creative projects outside your wheelhouse and how they can improve your work!

Talking about finding new opportunities & improving your work by taking the "not my thing" challenge on the LIA Cast!

I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer! – Leonard "Bones" McCoy

Given all that goes into being a visual storyteller, it's easy (and understandable) to default to our own realms of comfort and expertise to talk ourselves out of trying new things. Especially things that are "not our thing."

But what if trying such things led to new job opportunities or enhanced your visual storytelling abilities?

We're thrilled to be joined once again by +Ryan Estrada (http://ryanestrada.com), who will walk us through how hosting game shows, participating in open mics, and running parody Twitter accounts opened up new professional doors for him and added to his storytelling tool kit.

You can participate in the discussion via comments on the G+ event listing.

Having spent my entire adult life overseas, I never know what’s foreign culture and what’s just modern day livin’.
Example: Parents driving their children in tiny remote-controlled luxury cars instead of strollers- Is that a Korea thing or a 2010’s thing?

This week I wrapped up Act I of my comic series Broken Telephone. And holy shoot, you guys. My artists are creating something so beautiful that I can't even express how proud I am to have put it together. Just look at these preview of how gorgeous the next 12 chapters are going to be.
