This weekend, come see me at ECBACC 2013, May 18, 11am-7pm. 4548 Market St. at the Enterprise Center, Philadelphia PA.
Books, minis & other things! COMICS!! Afterwards, a cheese steak will be consumed somewhere.
COMING SOON: San Diego. North Bethesda.
My cover for the latest issue of the lefty economics magazine Dollars & Sense. The editors wanted a parody of the recent Bloomberg Businessweek cover which sparked criticism last month by seemingly blaming the housing crisis on minorities.
Check out the original, my sketch and the final image below, then read Darwin Bondgraham’s great article on the real culprits.
Two old characters and one new whatever-it-is.
Since last summer, I’ve been drawing cartoons (more specifically ‘visual rounds’) with my wife Mikhaela Reid for Geeks Who Drink, a company that hosts pub trivia quizzes in over 200 bars across the country, not to mention the incredibly popular annual Geek Bowl. Aah, the pub quiz. It combines three of my favorite things: beer, pop culture, and using my big sexy brain to answer pop culture trivia.
I’d show you an example of one of my cartoons, but it’s a quiz, dummy. You’ll just have to find one in a city near you.
Get Stephen Notley’s new Bob the Angry Flower collection How to Operate a Chair and help him celebrate 20 years of drawing psychotic flowers, fetuses, Daleks, stumps, Gunts and all sorts of death-rays and robotic mayhem.
Not only does this book have some of the funniest, smartest and sci-fi geekiest cartoons I’ve ever read, but it also features amazing Bob pinups by me, Keith Knight, Mikhaela Reid, Shannon Wheeler, Ruben Bolling and a bunch of other top comic and video game creators.
I’m also doing some stuff for my friend, award-winning editorial cartoonist (and editor for Cartoon Movement) Matt Bors. In this case, “stuff” means laying flat color for cartoons like this, and this one here, and that one, and a bunch of others. Check them out!
This is the image from my sketchbook that has been at the top of this site (in cropped form) for awhile. If you’ve seen the cover of my book Deep Doodle and happened to see my other sketchbooks, then you know that I draw a lot of intricate pictures like this. I don’t know if it’s indicative of the clutter I deal with inside and outside of my head or part of my obsessive-compulsiveness tendencies, but I do know that I like to draw weird little things crammed together in a tight space. Maybe that’s why I moved to New York.
I’m posting it now because I’m about to upload a buttload of images that have:
a) been on the site before but have been lost or purged when I was hacked months ago
b) have never been seen before.
One of those images will replace the one at the top very soon. Finally.
I’m participating in the traveling library/world tour known as the Sketchbook Project that starts in the Brooklyn Art Library (April 14th-29th) and travels to 13 more cities around the country. That means you can go to a participating art space and see 30+ pages of my original art in a sketchbook. You can check it out and get your grubby fingerprints all over it. And I’ll get a phone text notification letting me know! Or you can just be a ‘lazy Daisy’ and click here.
Brooklyn, Chicago, Portland (Oregon and Maine), Vancouver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Toronto, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Winter Park (Florida), Austin. For more details on Sketchbook Project locations, go here.

This is actually the first rolodex card I sketched on, but I couldn’t find it until recently. It makes me want to do a trading card series of CEOs. What kid wouldn’t want a card collection of chief executive officers?
