Comic: Bad Hair Day Joke

This is Pi Day #024

Did you get a hair cut?
No…. I got them ALL cut.

I’ve been aiming for a kind of universality in my comics. Y’know… parenting moments that are relate-able. Quirks you can empathize with or see yourself projected into.

This week is a little less so perhaps, and is brought to you exclusively from the mind of The Girl, who upon “outsmarting” her Dad in real life, thwarting his tried-and-true dad joke material said (in what could be the fifth frame of this comic) “you should draw a comic about this…”

So I did.

Do you Like Web Comics?

Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.

This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.

Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.

New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.

Comic: Dad Hair Day

This is Pi Day #023

With the Mom-bo out of town on business all week, I spent the better part of five days doing the dad dance solo.

And while I usually ain’t no wallflower, I did sit out the part with the dance lessons: and by sit out, I mean sit out in the waiting area for about four hours over two evenings while The Girl took hers.

This would normally give me plenty of time to polka out some new dance puns on my laptop, maybe even cha-cha-ching some new ideas for the comic, but alas, all I could fill my dance card with was a few new strip ideas.

Also, check out this SAME POST on my Blueberry Pi App for more fun, links and participatory…. ish..

Comic: Found Photos

This is Pi Day #022

The key to a good selfie is to just stay focused and don’t be negative.

To be fair, I think the Girl is going through a phase when she is LESS likely than me to post a bad photo of herself online. But in reality, it’s become clear that she has two sets of friends: those who social and those who don’t.

The day is inevitably coming when she doesn’t just ask, she begs for permission to sign up for an insta-snap-twit-book-latest-fad account. I can still hide behind the “you gotta be 13” user agreement rules for a while, but then again: so many friends who social!

C’mon fellow parents.

Comic: Classical Confusion

This is Pi Day #021

Gone Chopin. Bach in a minuet.

If you’re a fan of This is Pi Day you probably already know that my mostly-recent endeavour into publishing webcomics is happening in direct competition to another mostly-recent hobby.

As of last week, I’ve been learning to play the violin for a whole year… an effort that will eventually pay off in the form of having my own in-house one-man-band, but in the meantime requires dedicating each day what could be a solid thirty minutes of valuable comic-drawing to literal fiddling around in the basement.

The Girl actually told me the other day that I’m improving, a true compliment from a kid with an underdeveloped verbal filter, but she’s still lacks an appreciation for my repertoire, a song list that is heavy on a mix of classical alternating with fiddle tunes, and very under-represented in Top 30 pop tunes.

I dabble, but honestly… my singing voice has nothing on Adele.

Comic: Training Wreck

This is Pi Day #020

There is a time and a pace for everything.

Life is reasonably back to normal, and I figured it might be time for another running comic for my running fans. I know there are a few of you out there.

This one was lightly inspired by true events. Yup… hit in the face with a tree branch and someone actually said “that would make a good comic!” So, does it?
