Alex and Astro

A cerebral comic series

Ever question the nature of your own reality?

Yeah, me too. All the bloody time. My wife would argue probably a little too much. The problem is, no one empirically knows what conciousness is or how it came to be. No one. And I ponder this quite often.

Although many have speculated over the centuries, they have all merely fabricated an easy answer to a complex problem. Answers that put a band aid over the pain of existence. Answers that defy nature's complexity. Answers that defy our natural instinct to go beyond our comfort zones and be curious.

This existence we take for granted is just as much a mystery to Sapiens today as it was in antiquity when the likes of Plato and Socrates were scratching their heads about the same thing.

So when the term "Reality" is used, we should be skeptical to say the least.

Alex and Astro is my attempt to not solve, but explore the beautiful void that is the light of conciousness.


obliviouschimp mission
Pain is not only inevitable, it is the proven necessity for growth. Yet when the toddler falls we coddle and deny them this gift of agitation. We stunt ourselves and others when cowering from pain. Building on top of the best in neuroscience and philosophy, obliviouschimp creates children’s books as tools to lean into that pain in a unique, fun (yep, fun!) and memorable way.
