Op-Ed Illustration

This illustration appears on today's NY Times Opinion page, alongside a letter suggesting the creation of a progressive third political party to caucus with the Democrats. The drawing was a self-initiated challenge in drawing equine legs. Thanks to art director Alexandra Zsigmond for the gig!

Pig Latin Redux

As "Wayne's World 2" definitively proved, the sequel is never as good as the original. Still, I wanted to find out what happened to that intrepid pig.

Pig Latin

In my exhaustive research for today's comic, I read that John Steinbeck often signed his books with a drawing of the Pigasus, a mythical flying pig. He also included the Latin motto "Ad astra per alas porci":
"To the stars on the wings of a pig."

You can order a poster here.

Behind Every Great Novelist

This illustration appears in the New York Times Book Review alongside a review by Christopher Benfey of John Sutherland's "Lives of the Novelists." Sutherland's book profiles a long list of notable writers and the personal events that may or may not have influenced their creative output. I tried to distill the typical experience of a literary icon into nine small panels. I'm certain that many of our great writers have worked in a coal mine and owned a small poodle.

Animal Advocacy

I do not often use my drawings for political activism, but this comic is an exception. It highlights two issues I feel very strongly about.
