I missed re-posting a whole slew of past week Next Week in NYC! strips from The Observer lately. What? You hadn’t noticed? Well no worries! Here’s a batch from April for you, still as fresh today as the day they were first slapped onto bristol. New strips appear each week in the paper and at The Observer online every Tuesday or Wednesday or so.

I’m pleased to officially join the ranks of the Usual Gang of Idiots, I guess, if one appearance is all it takes and I’m pretending it does. (All the work I’d previous done was for MAD was, in fact, for MAD KIDS magazine, which is not apparently the same thing.) Anyway, I drew some pictures for the front end of this sucker. They are funny pictures. Please check it out!

Here is the strip from the April, 1 2013-ish issue of The Observer. New strips magically appear there every Wednesday!

There’s too much even I can’t explain in this one, from the 3/18 (I think) issue of The Observer. An all-new strip appears in the paper as well as online there every Wednesday.

I can’t keep up with what’s what or when so I’m just going with numbers for now. Here’s the fourth Next Week in NYC strip as originally seen in 3/10 issue of The Observer. A new strip appears online there every Wednesday.

Or something… Three weeks in and the name of my own strip already has me totally confused. Anyway, this one appeared in the March 11 print edition of The Observer which was, like, a couple of weeks ago… but it’s supposedly about the following week, I think, which is last week but I’m posting it here this week… and then there’s another all-new strip appearing later this week (Wednesday) here at The Observer. Or something… Ow. This is making my head hurt. Or something…

Here’s the second installment of Next Week in NYC! as seen in The March 4, 2013 issue of The Observer. Check here every Wednesday for the latest strip.

Here’s my NEXT WEEK in NYC strip from last week’s issue of The Observer. This week’s NEXT WEEK strip can be seen at The Observer all this week. After which, the following weeks’ NEXT WEEK strips will appear Wednesday both in print and online and I’ll post the previous this week’s NEXT WEEK strip here, week after week and so on and so on. Or something like that.

Wow! Suddenly, I’m front page news! Not really, but that is my name right up there next to Sam Henderson’s Hysterical Hipster Hulk. That’s because starting this past week I have an all-new, weekly comic strip featured in The New York Observer. It’s called, NEXT WEEK in NYC! Any fans of my old NYC comic strip collection, If New York City Was The World will certainly want to check it out. Last week’s NEXT WEEK in NYC! strip can be seen here. New strips appear every wednesday in both the print and online versions of The Observer. It’s a work in progress and I’m still ironing out all the details but it’s a real treat to be contributing a weekly feature to The Observer and I’m looking forward to trying and make New Yorkers both laugh and scratch their head in wonder for as many weeks to come as possible. It’s a dream job but it’s tough crowd, so wish me luck. Details to come…

Well, OK, then, I will! In fact, I will be part of a teen education program at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Sunday, January 27 from 1-3pm where I’ll be speaking about my experiences as a freelance illustrator, in particular, the work I did creating the poster/puzzle featured in the museum’s Family Map. (Other tricks I know, – which I may or may not perform at the event – include sitting, rolling over and playing dead.) Regardless, it will all be accompanied by an array of, if I may say, quite fetching images. I believe a visit to some of the museum’s galleries and some sort of on-hands drawing workshop are also involved. It’s free and open to teens 11-18. Find out more and sign up here. And there’s a Facebook page for you to like, too. C’mon! I won’t (totally) bite.
