Back in 2012 I made this comic for a group show in Philadelphia to benefit the World Wildlife Fund. The title comes from the term saht-supahp which in Laotian means "the polite animal", a term by which, because of it's quiet nature, some in Lao refer to the saola, the subject of this comic. The saola is an extremely rare and critically endangered species found in Vietnam and Laos. A couple years late in posting the comic online I guess but never too late to care about animals. Here's a link that takes you to the WWF page regarding the saola.

I made most of this music about a decade ago after my mom died. It was a nice outlet to occupy my time and mind. Aside from the diversion it was fun and I enjoyed the process of making it. All of it is far from perfect and most of the songs are little more than unfinished attempts. In any case they are what they are, just weird little songs, and I've grown rather fond of and even quite proud of some of what is here, particularly the tracks 'Granger', 'Priz', and 'Droz.' Hope you like them!
