This is late notice but since nobody reads this anyway, I might as well let all you know that I’ll be out and about tomorrow. It might well be your last chance to see me in the wild this year before I go into hiding for the holiday season. Plus this is going to be a lot of fun.
I’ve had the very fortunate pleasure of doing illustration work for The Metropolitan Museum of Art for a few years now including the Family Map and poster. (Maybe I’ve mentioned it to you before?) Lately, I’ve been creating some additional illustrations, that along with the poster, will be used for a new section of The Met’s website devoted to kids and art… and kids. The official launch is coming up and they’re throwing a party on September 20, 2015 from 1pm to 4pm. Admission to the party is included with your museum admission. You can read more about it here. I’ll be there, too, signing posters if anybody wants, drawing sketches and making art and stuff. There will be lots of fun for the whole family (No, really!) so please stop in. Thanks!
While I was still in college I was lucky enough to work for The Associated Press. I drew a daily feature about weather trivia as well as various spot illustrations. This one, about overweight umpires, ended up on a CNN sports report. In case you can’t tell from the George Bell/Dave Winfield trade talk or the anchor’s hair and tie, this aired in 1988!
I was flattered to be asked by my friend and fellow cartoonist, Bob Fingerman, to contribute a pin-up for his massive must-have Maximum Minimum Wage Collection. It’s a beauty of a book, filled with great, funny writing and beautiful art. I hoped to give Bob a smile with my page by giving his MW cast the zombie apocalypse treatment. He loves zombies, I think.
Here’s a peek at my pin up:

Here is the last handful NWinNYC! comics. I’ll be putting the strip on hiatus for a while to focus on bigger problems. I mean projects, of course, but more on that later. I enjoyed doing these strips for The NY Observer and hope to do some more in the future. But these are the last of them for now so read ‘em slow. And if you find yourself jonesing for some Big Apple humor, you can always score a copy of If New York City Was The World. It’s a collection of strips about the city that never sweeps, and a sort of precursor to NWinNYC! that ran in a Manhattan neighborhood paper back way back when those kinda things still existed. But the humor contained with in is as fresh as a NYC breeze. It’s way out of print but you can actually get a signed copy from me through Amazon. In the meantime, enjoy!
