Yes, this is based on that Alanis Morissette song, "Ironic." I thought of this after I went to a 90s party :P For these Daily Misfortunes, I make a bunch at once, because it's faster that way, and I get in a groove of creativity. Lots of times I get ideas when I'm out during the day, and I'll write them in my travel sketchbook and get to the computer part later (in Adobe Illustrator). Some people wondered if I write the comics myself. YES I do! I'm not sure of the ratio of artists that write their own stories vs artist-writer duos, but it seems that people are usually surprised when I say I'm also the writer.
