I’ve been drawing on an iPad a little bit lately, using a new stylus called the Adobe Ink. It’s pretty awesome, though I still need to get used to it. Here’s a little sketch I did about moving, which is fortunately now behind me.
September 22nd is the opening of my class’s group show, featuring all our book projects from the last year. I’ve already featured many spreads from my book, Bungles & Blunders: Missteps in History and the Losers Who Made Them, in this blog. I will post more, after the show. For now, the book is done, printed, and looking good.
If you live in NYC, you should come to the opening — it’s free to the public! It will be on SVA’s east campus, in the lobby of 209 E 23rd St.
My brain and hands have been completely focused on finishing this project. Since I have nothing new to show, here’s something from my sketchbook.
Another cover for Amazon’s Day One. This story, Yoghurt, by Colin Corrigan, is about a man, his dog, and his baby mama.
Wrapping up my book on the history of losers — should be done in a week or two! Here’s a spread about Shah Muhammad II:"In 1218, Genghis Khan sent a trade envoy to Shah Muhammad II, hoping to open trading relations with the empire of Khwarezm. But, the distrustful shah mistook the harmless Mongol trade mission for a devious Mongol invasion and had the entire group executed. In the end, there was a trade: in exchange for the beheaded Mongols, Genghis Khan took the shah’s entire empire, burned it to the ground, and massacred its people. Muhammad II fled for his life, fell ill and died in hiding a few days later."
For a private commission — some art to accompany a husband’s foray into beekeeping.
Latest cover for Amazon’s Day One. This one features Jennifer Blackman’s “You Know Me Better Than That,” a story about a woman reflecting on her high school years, particularly an incident when she was a lifeguard at Luke Wilson’s pool. Sketches below.
Hi friends! I’m trying to turn my weiner dog illustration into a t-shirt over at Threadless. They run everything based off of a voting system, so a lot of people need to give my illustration a score of 5 before they’ll consider selling it. Even if you don’t plan on buying a shirt, I’d really appreciate the support!

You have to log in, but you can do that through Facebook (or with a Threadless account). After that, it’s just one click.
Thanks! (and tell you friends)
