About

Our Process has been published for more than a year and then I took a year off (yeah the Ogre sucks). Our Process focused on politics, education and other funny stuff, but will kinda slow down after the hiatus. If you see a partial comic on the page, click it and it will redirect you to the webcomic project I’ve started and will hopefully be able to stick to.

Here are a few actualities about Aaron “the Ogre” Guile:

  • I am a Latter-day Saint (or Mormon, if you rather).
  • I love politics, but distrust all politicians. I am politically unaffiliated.
  • I am a 40-something geek living in Provo, UT with two friends.
  • I have been married.
  • I have three children: Andy (married to Crystal), Uhn-ha (who goes by Martie) and Rob.
  • I am an English Major with an emphasis in creative writing; poetry and a minor in religious philosophy (an oxymoron if you ask me–sorry Brian).
  • I graduated from Provo High School, but have attended many other schools in my childhood (army brat).
  • I have seven siblings: Ben, Pat, Dan (Lee), Nate, Joe, Holly and Elisha.

    Hi, thank you for the like. :) I like your art a lot, it is really diverse.

  2. disperser says:

    Subs have bad reputations? I don’t agree. In fact I am pretty sure naval vessels are typically held in awe by the majority of people.

    Surrounded, as they are, with a mystique derived from their ability to disappear below the horizon, most ships evoke a feeling of adventure and mystery.

    Submarines are doubly so because they can disappear right in front of you.

    Yes, I am kidding. I used to not say that, assuming everyone would know. But now, having encountered an inordinate amount of humorless people, I do not want to be confused with them.

  3. Hey Aaron,

    Well, I studied religion and wrote on the side–I also am a teacher. All of this to say, I knew I’d like your blog, and I’m not just saying that because you’ve been kind enough to visit mine–though that didn’t hurt.

    I’m adding your thoughts to my list of interesting things to read–God help me for adding another blog. Oh well.

    Best,

      Gabe:

      Thank you so much for visiting and for your comments. I really enjoyed your comic and reading some of the others.

      Cheers,
      Aaron

    Thank you kindly for dropping by my blog & leaving a footprint. I added your blog to my follow list based on random reads and your list above. Enjoyed my visit, I did :)

  6. Skeeter says:

    Thanks for your comments on my site. I subbed for five years while I studied religious education in the seminary. I do better with the younger grades though, despite my background as a Mechanical Engineer, and all that higher math and science I know. So we have some things in common, and a few differences. I’ve always meant to write a book about my subbing experiences, your blog could inspire me to write out at least a few events.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      I hope you do write out a few events. There a few subbing books or books about subbing, but few have a lot of narrative or anecdotal information.

  7. molloy0708 says:

    Thanks for stopping by my website. As an educator myself, I have to say that you are a brave man subbing on a regular basis. I know people who love the variety but I personally prefer knowing what I’m getting into every day. Hence, I am unemployed at the moment. Good luck. I enjoyed your work.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      I do enjoy subbing. I love the variety, but I also love that it is an essential job. The feeling of being needed is much more immediate as a sub than in any other job I’ve ever had. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Haha, I loved your ‘about’ section! Looking forward to poring over your blog now. Very glad you stopped by and left a breadcrumb trail!

  9. You must be careful of reading Kafka. He will trap you. And there’s no exit.

  10. SK says:

    thanks for “K.’s Castle” – nice written log – “just not that funny” ? – less moan, may be !

  11. Hi Aaron. Your work is so impressive. Really Kafka-stylish. Man, your internet-comic could be huge. Some of the drawings I put on the site so far are also parts of so called “Dark wave comics”. best wishes and thanks for your feedback about my stuff. your new follower Clemens

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the ‘like’. Best wishes with your subbing, brave man!

  13. goldimark says:

    Howdy, A the O! Thanks for the likes over here at “ursula and bernice”. Wow, I can’t believe anyone is actually seeing my crummy blog already! Anyway, dig your style of drawing (looks pretty fancy to me)… and I have always been a fan of cockroaches (Madagascar hissing kind, not the see-in-your-house-and-panic kind). Three cheers for cartoons!

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      I actually really like the way you draw and ink. There is a lot to say for minimalism with its focus on story. Thank you so much for stoping by, I appreciate it. And indeed, three cheers for cartoons! Here here here!

  16. spesaeterna says:

    Hey there, I wanted to stop by and thank you for your support on the Microscope. Your own art is amazing – I wish I could draw like that!

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      It’s okay. I love your writing and since I might end up going to grad school (English of course), I think your comics are hilarious.

  17. julez52 says:

    Hi Aaron, thanks for the like on my art blog

  18. Well, you are one hell of an artist, love the cartoons, sketches, well done :) NBot so sure I agree with all the items in the About Me statement though :)

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Thanks for the compliments. RE: the about me stuff, disagreement is fantastic. As long as one can talk and not scream or take vengeance, then we might just learn something. I’m glad you disagree.

  19. bsebadger says:

    Hi Aaron,

    Thank you so much for going over a couple of my posts and ‘liking’ them. I’m new to the WordPress scene, and I initially thought most ‘likes’ were from random people who simply wanted more readers on their blogs. But I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled upon your blog. Its nice to find a kindred spirit, if you will, who puts up his rants and sketches on the web for people to see and get a dose of something else than what the media dishes out.

    I’m a grad student at UW Madison and I barely manage to find time to put these out. And the language is tempered to be tame enough for a college newspaper. I wish I could write specifically for the blog, but between all of my commitments, this takes a back seat.

    Anyway, it was great to see some real people on the internet, and I dig your artwork a lot. I am still working on my own, but I don’t think I have a style that I can call my own yet. It keeps morphing about depending on my mood and inspirations. Good getting to know you.

    Bsebadger

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Hey thanks. I want to let you know I love your newest post “The Skittles Terror.” I think you have found a great voice and I really like your art and how it is often quite raw. Keep it up. You are quite skilled. BTW, I understand your grad school problems. I am so glad you do take the time to post. My sister only posts between semesters. When I finally get to grad school, I hope to be able to pst as often and intelligently as do you. Thanks for stopping by.

    Thanks for visiting my site and leaving a footprint.

  21. ladystamper says:

    Believe it or not, I actually read all of your post and I believe you are a bit funny. I’ll be baaaack…..

  22. ladystamper says:

    I actually read your entire list this morning and, frankly, I think you are a bit funny. Thanks for the nod to parents of special ed kids…I am one of those and feeling it in full force today.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      I understand. I have been on a long term sub assignment at a transition center for cognitively-disabled, mentally-ill and/or brain-damaged adults (often all three) who are trying to move from special-ed to regular jobs. Most days are fine, but all of last week everyone there had at least one “behavior.”

      I love everyone of them and I am glad our center exists to relieve the strain on parents and care-takers, but I only see them for seven hours a day and I don’t have to change diapers. The parents who care for these folks day in and day our are modern-day super heroes. Especially since very few of them went out looking for this kind of pain (the pro-foster parents are the exceptions and they are amazing, too–most of the time).

      Keep it up. I am proud and awestruck by every parent of disabled children and adults.

  23. limner1 says:

    Hey Ogre. I never know what to say in these situations so I say nothing. I am beyond tired of saying “I like your post,” without saying why. It’s the artist/writer in me. I learned to critique and be critiqued, but too often I get so caught up in what I read/see that I end up talking to myself instead of writing ’cause I move on to older posts. Then, on occasion I don’t like what I see and refuse to say that I do out of politeness. How awkward, huh? Should I lie?

    Your bio is one of the most interesting-unusual-entertaining . . . See? There are reasons why I like or not like. Write on. And Thank you.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      My pleasure and I feel the same way you do. I really like the marker art you have shown and posted. I am trying to learn to use markers and photoshop together. I hope it works.

      If you dislike something I’ve posted or have advise, I will listen and respond maturely. I publish poetry and am a part of a workshop group. Sometimes, the criticism is very heavy handed and often personal. But, these other poets are my friends and I do not take offense. This is how artists should behave.

  24. Hey Aaron,

    Cheers for the like on my post. Much appreciated.

  25. murmurkacang says:

    thanks for dropping by!! it’s a pleasure to find great works here :)

  26. just discovered your blog and love it. happy to be a follower. your insights/details are amazing. hoping that the law doesnt slow down your stories. i enjoy reading them.
    thank you for sharing,
    odie mama.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      No problem. I’m glad you are along for the ride. I’m with you. I’m going to talk to my brother (a lawyer) about my plan to do a graphic short-story about an autistic young man I met. I hope I will be able to draw a fictional account at least based on something I fell in love with.

    Read your list lying in bed this morning in Bucharest, saw the muddy photo and thought: “Yikes, was this kid an extra in ‘Deliverance’? Interesting thoughts, well expressed, striking cartoons, well done. I worked as a supply teacher for 1 week @ American School in Khartoum, hard work but I enjoyed it. Thanks for dropping by, glad you liked the-cat-who-sold-the-dog : ) Mike

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      My pleasure of course, Mike. Bing a sub/supply teacher is hard as hell, but worth far more than the terrible salary they pay the subs. I love it.

  31. apeface says:

    Dear Mr. the Ogre,
    I’ve been checking out your site, and your work is really cool. I’m honored that such a skilled artist as yourself would frequent my site. Keep up the great work and thanks for your support!

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Hey, Thank you so much for stopping by. I love a lot of your posts. I’ve been trying to advocate a whole foods diet to my roommate who has type II diabetes, but his doctor has him convinced otherwise (all medication, minimal reeducation, exercise and diet changes). It really sucks and it bothers me that people who have alternative beliefs about diet are being punished by the law.

      • Veggiewitch says:

        Super-glad I found your blog. =0)

        Too true. There really is no money in being healthy tho, so we are feared into believing we have no choice. Fear breeds dependency, so it’s a Catch-22 for people who know deep-down there is a better way. Good luck to your Roomie.

  37. creativeliz says:

    Hello Aaron, just wanted to say thank you for stopping by and liking my blog – your illustration work is amazing, I’m looking forward to seeing more of it! Also I’d like to add, best of luck with your work at the transition centre – my younger brother is severely autistic so I’ve a great amount of admiration for anyone willing to help people in the way that you do :)
    All the best, Liz

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Thanks, Liz. I love working with them. They are great people and generally are trying to do the best with what they have. I wish I could write about them and their lives, unfortunately that is not possible.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

  38. junoroche says:

    A great list, having been a teacher for the past ……..years in the UK I will follow for the humor and art.

  39. maninacave says:

    Firstly, thanks for stopping by my new cartoon blog. It was good to spend some time this morning looking around yours and like others I enjoyed your bio and I might steal the idea! Your cartoons are very good and for me they work best, to a professional level, when the overall design and structure is very tight and bold. Have you any work for your Franz Kafka comic available online? BTW on first reading I thought you said you like Frank Zappa. Could be interesting. I will keep in touch and enjoy your progress. Warmest regards from Philip in South Wales UK.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Philip, I do like Frank Zappa. He is one of the most perversely creative persons in pop-culture. I just have not posted anything regarding him or any of his projects.

      Regarding Kafka: Unfortunately, my more obvious Kafka comics have been discarded, but like today’s pic (The Stranger & A.), many images have been influenced by Franz Kafka’s The Trial.

      I’m glad you enjoyed my posts. I hope to continue for a great more time to come. a.

  40. Geo Parkin says:

    Thanks for the like, Aaron, always great to see other drawing-based blogs! Love the list-format bio, too – an excellent idea. Share your affection for the Brooklyn Bridge; walked across it in sub-zero temperatures back in February – one of the world’s great views. Ditto coleslaw!

    All the best from Brighton, UK. Keep it up, man!

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      I agree, there are not that many artists blogging their drawings. Their CG stuff? Oh, sure. One of the things you’ve done, I just time to go to: models. I’m too busy to log studio time. At least not since college when I was a freshman trying to determine if I wanted to study Physics, English or Art, my three passions at the time.

      I am jealous that you’ve had the chance to get out and see the world. I haven’t traded outside the US in over a decade. I hope I get the chance soon. Have a good one man. Cheers!

  41. Dvido says:

    It’s great to connect with you Aaron. Your page looks great and your artwork embellishes it even more so. Cheers!! :D

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Thanks man, I appreciate it. I love your pictures of Seoul. I lived there for eight years and I don’t think I recall many empty streets even late at night.

      Thanks for stopping by. Cheers! ;)

  42. Lilian says:

    Wowee that’s a long post. And even more comments. I started reading the top comments, but then got too impatient to leave my own message. I did read to the full bullet list though, because I think I agree with a lot of your points. And I like your drawing style, bold.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Thank you very much. There is a lot of stuff there. I’ve thought about editing some of it and maybe I will, but it’s been a lot of fun so far. There are tons of comments, but I have been very happy to hear from everyone and comment back.

      However, I agree with you completely about shortbread. I love the stuff unless it is like eating a lego piece.

      Thanks for stopping by Lilian, I appreciate it.

  43. Gipsy Jules says:

    Thank you for stopping by and liking the post! Nice draws you have here and, by the way, you are funny enough! ;)

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Thanks, I appreciate that. My kids tell me I am too self critical. I think once you’ve been working on the same joke for an hour or so, its no longer any fun. Thanks for the encouragement, though, Have a good one and thanks for stopping by.

  45. mongrel4u says:

    You are an artist and a Kafka fan so I hope you have seen Robt. Crumbs’ illustrated “Metamorphosis”. Thanks for liking my stuff. Is that a self-portrait up above? It’s good. When I read some of your trials and tribulations of substitute teaching I visualized a younger guy, but then again anyone under 50 seems young to me these days. You have a unique and appealing perspective.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Michael, I love your comics. You have a very fine, confident style of drawing and writing. I look forward to everyone of your comic updates. I really identified with your last one where you are a complete technophile except you still don’t have a cell phone. My kids complain about the same stuff. I hate cell phone. Re Crumb’s Metamorphosis: no I have not seen it. I have a graphic novel of The Trial. I disagree with it. Which is why I seem to be inching closer and closer to Kafka every time I draw.

      Thanks for stopping by Michael, I appreciate it and I love your art!

  46. The Taxi Dog says:

    I think many Republicans are no better [or worse] than Democrats. They just have different ideas about what works. Good ideas should be able to stand on their own, without the rancor and ad-hominem [sp] ugliness. I’m not saying that YOU do it. Just that we all could do a little better at trying to understand each other.

    TD

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      I agree, the only problem I have is that when the partisans from both sides hear about an idea coming from the opposite side, then they automatically oppose it without thinking through what the opposition is saying. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it.

    • Aaron the Ogre says:

      Azi, thank you very much. I have enjoyed every one of your subway pictures. They are clever and catch the essence of the New York Subway and urban life better than many other attempts at urban art. Thank you for stopping by and suffering through my gigantic bio.

    Dear Mr. Ogre, thanks so much for visiting my blog and liking stuff. I’m new to this put-yourself-out-there digital world and am as novice as you can get. Your encouragement helps a lot! I suspect you’re not an ogre at all, despite your ogre origin story. Cheers!

  60. trojanwalls says:

    You majored in English – was it because you wanted to be a writer/journalist/some other type of pen-holder?
    I’m considering English for my masters (after majoring in Economics) and have been told I’m an idiot for considering it because it adds nothing to ones appreciation of english and doesn’t improve your writing either.
    Just thought I would ask you – what do you think?
    essentially I don’t know what I want to do, but I love writing stories, reading fiction and (recently) sketching characters. I loved the nuns on the cycle, by the way.
    Thanks for liking my Common Man.

    • My pleasure on the ‘like’.

      Re English: The story is long and convoluted. It starts with Physics and ends in English and a love of optics. The story involves love, loss, divorce, children, hate, institutional bulls–t and the kind of stuff one only sees in the movies. In the end though, I decided on English because I love to write poetry and I like philosophy.

      Huh? Yeah, my kids who are the most familiar with my reasons think I’m nuts, too. However, I love rhetoric and most of my favorite philosophers base most of their arguments in rhetoric. So: English. If and when I go to grad school, I will pursue Rhetoric and Composition with an interest in being a lecturer as opposed to a researcher and then spend all my none teaching time writing poetry and comics.

      Right now I’m stuck in an odd limbo zone, that is inexplicable but means I can’t continue on the hunt for a few more years. I’m fine with that. I enjoy what I’m doing now and English & Physics got me here.

    Hello, Love your ideals and your humor. We have quite a few things in common. I hear you about the “religion” thing. I am so tired of ppl “Christians” not accepting me for who I am, but that I must be a clone to their way of thinking. It is really a turn-off. I respect the rights and ways of others as long as no one is harmed. I am an advocate for the underdog (poor). I am a huge animal lover and animal welfare advocate and believe we are all connected, ppl, plants, animals. I believe in God, but not in the ‘christian” or traditional western way. I love to laugh!

    • My pleasure Mary, but I beg to differ. I love the style you show in your work. I particularly like the fishing lure and the great fish that in fact looks like a spinner lure itself. Fantastic. I like what your doing very much.

      I miss Lenny Briscoe. I listen to Law and Order while I draw all the time (not now, I listening to Deep Purple).

      Mary, I’m glad you stopped by and had a gander, I appreciate it!

  72. Thanks for the ‘like’. Your portraits are pretty darn nifty.

  73. I enjoyed reading this very much! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

    I love your blog, and it’s always a pleasure to meet a fellow artist and writer. Your art has such a unique and fun style! I can’t wait to see more!

    Hi! I like your blog a lot so I nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award :D More information here: http://lestwentytwo.wordpress.com/2012/07/08/today-i-learned-interim-10-very-inspiring-blogger-award/

  76. Hi Mr Ogre. Did you leave anything out above? Lol. I love your honesty. You would never be a good politician! Thanks for checking my blog as I’ve just started posting drawings and you have shown me the potential of pens, highlighters and Photoshop! Keep up the great work.

    • Thank you very much, especially the bit about being a politician. I would never make it as one. I really like your drawing on the Tour de France. I’m not following it as closely as I usually do since I don’t have a tv. I am excited that Wiggins is leading this year, however. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

    You have so many comments on your post.We were born to have a free will we decide our fate.You already happy with your thoughts.Cheers.

    • I agree 100%, we all were born with capacity for free will to make choices in our lives, the problem it seems is that many people have skipped that option and have picked to do nothing.

    Thank you for liking a post of my work, and being my first blog viewer! Your work is lovely; I’m digging the style and especially the colour combinations in your pieces. Also, anyone with spaceship art gets +10 points in my book any day :)

  80. Hey Mr Ogre, just thought – having been incredibly lax with my internettiquette – I’d swing by and say cheers for checking out my own wee page now and again.
    Nice to read and look at something with teeth! (says the decidedly PG rated kids book writer…)

  81. Thanks for the follow. I love your about page – it’s interesting what our accumulated posts say about us.

  82. Thank you for the like and visiting my blog. I appreciate visits from another artist.

    Thanks for your like on Carolina Wren. You have neat blog.

  84. Thanks heaps for checking out some of my cartoons!

  85. Thank you for liking my monarch butterfly pencil sketch. I enjoyed visiting your blog again.

  86. Thanks for dropping by my blog! I hope you found it an enjoyable read. :)

  87. Hiya Aaron, just thought I’d send a quick note to let you know I bought the App you use (Procreate). It’s really powerful and I like the brush translation ( annoyingly it is a bit slow when it comes to things like adding layers, undoing your last stroke, but I can forgive it ).
    Cheers! Marti

    • Marti (BTW: that’s my daughter’s name): I don’t use Procreate. I use PhotoShop Elements and scan drawings in. I wish I could afford to buy a Wacom and regular PhotoShop, but I’m poor and had to buy cheap stuff. Eventually I’ll buy some neater stuff. But right now it is still sharpies, felt tips and a trac-ball.

      Thanks though, Marti.

      I do gotta let you know, I love your cartoons. You are one of the best WordPress cartoonists. I think you are fantastic!

    Hi Aaron! Thanks for liking my posts :). Is nice to meet your blog too ;)

  92. Hi. Thanks for liking my drawing. :)
    Um, it’s kind of late right now and I don’t really have anything to say… Well, I quite like your drawing stile, to me it looks slightly ‘abstract’. And by saying that I meant it as a compliment, I like abstract. :)) Anyhow, thanks and good night (at least in my time right now).

  93. Thank you so much for liking my post “Sketch” on my blog “Diary of an art student” :)
    Wishing you Love, Light, and Laughter, Always :)

    Hey thank you for liking my post on the connection between One Piece and Frankenstein. Are the comics posted here drawn by you? They are very unique in style, and I think that they have a good balance between exaggeration and reality capturing. I also especially like the about page, quite hilarious.

    • Yes, I do draw the comics myself (I digitally edit, however). Thank you for the compliments on style and my about page, I appreciate them. I also like your inks. Good pen and ink is hard to find.

  95. You have a wonderful blog that makes me politically aware whilst being funny! I nominated you for the Blog on Fire Award, which you can find more about here: http://emptynotebook.wordpress.com/2013/01/04/blog-on-fire-award/

    Cheers!

    Hey there!
    I fear this is probably the type of thing you may be more tempted to make a witty cartoon about than engage with, but I’ve put you up for this ‘One Lovely Blogger’ award nonetheless:
