Comic Info:

Eleven years, five books. A degree, two co-op jobs and three career jobs, five residences, a marriage and half a dozen broken bones. 

It's been a pleasure sharing it all with you, I sincerely couldn't have asked for a better audience. To those I've met, and those I haven't yet, I'm honoured to have been a part of your life. Thank you for welcoming me to it. This is the end of weekly updates, but rest assured it isn't the end of rainy days, jammyness, shenanigans, engineering triumphs, or stories I wish to tell.

We'll meet again.

Thanks for all these years of comics!
It's been both awesome and educational to have your inside view of what it's like to be an engineer :)
I wish you best of luck with your life from here on!

I haven't posted in over 5 years, but I had to be here to say Thank you! Thank you for so many amazing years of comics. I really hope we'll see more of your creative projects in the future. This comic was what finally motivated me to graduate so many year ago. I'm sad to see you go, but glad that it's ending on your terms. Best wishes, Jam, the future is looking good.

Made this account today to comment, but I've been reading since I was in middle school. I especially loved all your college stories and this year I'm a freshman at college reading your Real World career stories. (It'd be great to say I'm also a woman in engineering or something, but I'm in linguistics. You're still a great inspiration :D) Thank you so much for sharing with us for all these years.

Thank you so much for all the work and heart you put into this comic. I just graduated from college with an engineering degree and your comic has been an amazing source of comfort, humor, and reassurance since I found it years ago.
Thank you again, and I wish you all the best and success in your life!

Thank you for the years of effort and heart you put into this comic. You touched a lot of people over the years. I wish you good luck but you don't need it - you have the drive, compassion, and ability to succeed without the capriciousness of luck. Use the luck to avoid a few future broken bones, use your raw talent to succeed in whatever you do next =P

Wasted Talent is Ending

It's true, after over a decade of regular updates, I'm bringing Wasted Talent to its conclusion. I've put a lot of work into making the ending of this comic as good as it can be, and we'll see that rolling out in bi-weekly updates leading up to the final update on Dec 5th.


Meanwhile, I'm running a Kickstarter for the final two collected print editions. I'll only be printing as many as I need to fulfill the Kickstarter, so if you're interested in that DON'T WAIT!


I've been hearing your messages all day about how you'll miss Wasted Talent and they've been really touching and sweet, thank you! Of COURSE I'm going to miss the comic too, and honestly the wonderful community we've built together here is what kept me going for so very long. Rest assured that if you want, there will be a way to keep my creative pursuits in your lives going forward, and I honestly believe that my comics from here on out are only going to get better and better.


Happy Tuesday!
