A Stray in the Woods
A collaborative comic adventure, in which you are a cat. After each update, I take suggestions for what Cat should do — Investigate an object? Move into another room? Eat something off the floor? Then I read through all of the suggestions that have been submitted and select one as the basis for the next page.

The comic updates about once per weekday, and is hosted on Tumblr. You do not, however, need a Tumblr account to participate, as anyone can issue "commands" anonymously.

"A Stray in the Woods" is an experiment for me, in that it's very different from the kinds of comics I usually draw and write. However, although reader commands will ultimately dictate the path of the story, I have a general plot in mind, and I plan to see it through until the end.

I like the concept, but more unexpectedly, the art is really beautiful!

And now I've posted a little follow-up story, A Leaf in the Night! (Also available in print, if that's how you roll.)
