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!
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!
