A few hours ago I launched a Kickstarter project to raise money for the printing of WAIJIAO, my comic essay about teaching in China (My girlfriend and I lived there for four years, during which time we created this blog. We also have another website called Resolving Chaos). My goal is $1000, which will cover the printing of 100 copies, shipping, Kickstarter fees, and other unforeseen costs. There are some good rewards, including signed copies, prints, and original artwork. Already the project has reached about a third of its goal. If you are curious about China, or like alternative comics, or just like supporting creative projects, please check it out, and by all means pass it along to anyone who may be interested.
“The Street Cats of Zheshida Old Neighborhood is a collection of feral cat portraits taken in the Zhejiang University old teachers’ dormitory neighborhood in Jinhua, China. The cats live in a similar fashion to their homeless human counterparts; mainly they survive on handouts. They spend their days digging in trash cans, eating through plastic trash bags and resting in the sun. I save the meat from most of my meals for the cats and to pay me back they pose for my camera. Despite their blackened muzzles, the cats remain dignified in their posture and behavior. They rarely fight over food or space and all (but Pushy Susan) wait patiently for the delivery of their scraps.”

This Ridiculous World has started a new project based site called Resolving Chaos. It has not quite grown to its full fledged glory but any feedback or suggestions would be much appreciated. We will leave This Ridiculous World as is for the time being because we feel it contains an entertaining archive of our time spent adjusting to Chinese culture. Feel free to dig around past posts and explore our new site Resolving Chaos. As always, thanks for reading, I hope you find something worthwhile.
