Unfortunately I can’t make heads or tails of it, but the artist, my good friend Sean Bieri, assures me that it’s a trenchant, spot-on satire of some current internet […]
Marko Jačan’s ROYGBIV comic Darko Macan recently sent out a call for entries to his Croatian cartooning friends to do versions of my ROYGBIV comics constraint, where you assign one of the colors of the rainbow to each panel.

I had great success trying out a classic Oulipian exercise with my cartooning students at SVA, and I’ll likely do some version of it at my upcoming MoCCA Obstacle Course workshop
Back in November 2009 I was invited to France to tour with 11 other American authors for a few weeks as guests of an annual festival called Belles Étrangères. (I blogged about it here and here.) Part of the program was a documentary they filmed about all of us in the US during the summer […]
