I had the privilege of being photographed recently by the great Dmitri Kasterine. He wrote a little post about it and my work up on his blog.

I’ll add my own narrative to this experience: I was nervous to be photographed.  I hadn’t “posed” in 20 years and usually go running and screaming from any and all photos of myself. He made it easy and his only critique was, “Don’t smile!” As he says on his site, he likes to go beyond the polite face of his sitters. I think it shows.

Illustrations in The New York Times!

July 28, 2019


I got to do 23 portraits of 4th graders for The New York Times Magazine‘s All Comics Kid’s Section in today’s print edition of the Sunday New York Times. It was a labor of love! Go get your hands on this amazing issue–so many beautiful stories!

True story!

UPDATE: I didn’t think of it, but after I posted this I realized that today would have been my mother’s 75th birthday. Happy Birthday, mom! Hope they have a case of Pall Malls wherever you are!

May 15, 2019


Happy to announce that Paper Pencil Life #6 is now available for purchase in the shop!! Hooray!! I’m really proud with how this baby came out–it’s the first issue with color in it!

More shop news:

To make room for the new, I have decided to discontinue Paper Pencil Life #2. If you haven’t got a copy and want the humble beginnings of my life in comics, now would be the time to get it!

After a brief run out after MoCCA, my travel diary form 2015, SOUVENIRS, is back in stock! Get ’em while you can!
