steve-and-stevePatrick Farley, my long lost spiritual doppelganger, who I first discovered in 1996, and whose historical life resonates so much with mine, has created another extraordinary comic taking place exactly where I lived in 1975, Los Altos, California. My brother and I used to spend a LOT of time in those hills up behind Pore Clares. Farley has several times now captured the exact essence of my formative years across several comics. To this day I know of no one who has done this as eerily as he does. And he does it again here.

This comic is about Steve and Steve (Jobs and Wozniak), who lived just a few minutes from my house.

Comic: Steve and Steve

A few years later I remember driving with my dad by the small building that was then Apple HQ, with the pirate flag flying on the mast, hearing my dad uttering under his breath, “Damn hippies”.

See my related post about my time in Los Altos and Cuptertino in the late 1980s.

Probably the most extraordinary comic Farley has ever done is First Word – definitely check it out!

Here’s a similar post I made about Farley in 2002.



Patrick Farley has done it again. Except this time he has totally outdone himself. This is hands down the best webcomic that has ever been done so far. Simply amazing. This stunningly beautiful graphic comic tells the story on the origin of language Terrence Mckenna style. While you’re at it, listen to some trippy psychill music while scrolling through this visionary masterpiece:

First Word

E-sheep is a website by a fellow named Patrick Sean Farley, who I have never met but, who in the 7 years I have been aware of his work on the web, is like the brother I never had. I discovered his first site called “In Orbit Around The Web” in 1996. The similarities between him and I seem uncanny at times. The site features comix by Sean and his artwork – which is achingly beautiful at times.
