Welcome to our website

Punctuation Association is a comic strip created by me, Joni Righthand. What makes this strip so unique is that I have Fetal alcohol syndrome, Autism and ADHD. Also this strip stars punctuation marks as characters. Due to the fact that I have three disabilities, this strip and business is my way of being independent as I also live in a group home for disabled adults.

I’ve been doing this strip for many years. The idea came from my English teacher in grade nine who inspired me through a punctuation project. I showcase my strip monthly in the Ranchlands community newsletter as well as many other community newsletters throughout Calgary.

The magic of the creation of the strip happens at the university of Calgary in the Taylor digital family library. I don’t have to pay for this but this is what I call “school” I love it there.

As for the selling of my books we participate in as many Christmas and spring markets (Usually about two. Namely Ranchlands and Scenic acres)as we can and we also have a permanent place at Euphoria cafe here in Calgary in Varsity on Monday and Friday.

And now a word from the stars of the strip:

CRISIS7

Hi there my name is Question. I am a fun lovable pup who just never seems to stay out of trouble. I create the laughs for the strip through my way of taking everything literally! I hope you follow and learn more about me through reading my strip, I mean our strip.

Okay, move over there Question, it’s my turn. Hi there everyone! My name is Excla. I’m Question’s owner and best friend! I’m the serious one in the strip whose job it is to keep Question out of trouble, although Question does not make that easy on my part as you will find out as you read the strip, but do not worry cause there are also lots of tender moments between us too.
