Follow me, if you'd like.

I've moved to tumblr! Follow - I've been keeping it pretty regularly updated. I tried updating both here and there with the same things, but it felt a little silly, the internet doesn't need me to have so many voices.

Dust Motes Vol. 1 and 2 are now for sale from Yeti Press

"Budnik gives voice to his loneliness, his wanting to connect but often feeling uncomfortable with others, nostalgia for a comforting childhood and difficulty accepting adulthood. Somehow, amazingly, he comes up with a punchline every day and a strip that’s just a solidly-constructed read."

- Rob Clough, critic for The Comics Journal and the High-Low blog

Dust Motes 1 and 2 are officially out today from Yeti Press. I want to again say thanks to RJ, Eric, Rob Clough for his quote, and everyone who supported the Yeti Press Kickstarter.

There are some really personal thoughts in these books- I’m excited to finally have physical copies of them to share. Its great to know that they’re out in the world and not only floating around inside my head.

Dust Motes part 1 and 2

They're here!
With extreme humility and thanks to everyone who donated to the Yeti Press 2014 Kickstarter, Dust Motes 1 and 2 are printed and will soon be on their way to those who pre-ordered copies.

These books represent a really intense time in my life. My second year of journal comics, my first year out of college, and a diagnosis of anxiety and eating disorders. They don't openly confront the latter as much as they could, but I hope anyone picking up these books who copes with similar issues can find a little happiness in them.

Once again, thanks for donating to the Kickstarter. If you haven't already gotten a copy, they'll be available online from Yeti Press in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for the next books in the subscription series from Andrea Bell and Sam Sharpe.

Til then, I'm spending the night doodling in all the pre-ordered books!

I was given the book 642 THINGS TO DRAW a few years ago. It sat on my shelf until tonight. I think I’ll break it out and use it for warm-ups and stuff from now on.
