October 14th, 2017

I am working on and still working out an animation based on the famous coffee cup scene in Godard’s Two or Three Things I Know About Her.

Bunnies in Suits

August 23rd, 2017

Looks like I’m not the only person who likes to draw bunnies in evening wear.  These mid century drawings at Beleman’s Bar at the Carlyle Hotel are by the guy who drew Madeline.  See article.

Press Play Fair at Pioneerworks

August 6th, 2017

I had a fun time at PioneerWorks small press / zine / music fest. Met some nice people, sold some books and comics, and continued to perfect the art of staring into space while looking approachable at the same time.

Coming Soon: Volume 4: The Analysis of Margaret Wise Brown

March 28th, 2017

In All that Brown the Sun Went Down won  a AxP Zine Grant, First Prize. So I decided to make a new volume that tries to come up with a psychological answer for why Margaret was love with Michael. Dr. Bak and I put our heads together and come up with an analysis:

The zine will be available by mid-April.

Volume 4: In All This Brown the Sun Went Down

December 19th, 2016

volume4

I’m back in my studio sketching out Volume 4 of the comic In All That Brown the Sun Went Down — an ongoing zine abut the life and loves of Margaret Wise Brown.  In this issue I will attempt to show why on earth Margaret fell in love with the high maintenance and dismissive Michael Strange. Unfortunately no letters between the two exist in Margaret Wise Brown’s archives. They do exist somewhere. I just have to find them. In the meantime, Dr. Bak and I have our theories about this unlikely pair. I’ll also be introducing new characters: Maude Adams the turn of the century sapphic stage actress  and the illustrator Garth Williams, who bucks the bunny trend and appears  in the story as a raccoon.

Stay tuned!

 

Sehsapsing Corn

December 12th, 2016

This spring I sent some of the seeds to a grower in Pennsylvania. She recently sent me these pictures. I love that these beautiful corn seeds I started in Canarsie with the Maize Field project in 2010 are still being grown and shared.
