I’d been kicking around an idea for a jam comic based on the game of tic tac toe. Recently I invited Tom Hart to meet up with me at a café before class at SVA and give it a try.
I’d like to share a sampling of amusing and occasionally astounding work done by students of mine using constraints.

My pal and frequent collaborator Charlie Orr has been making a splash on the internet lately with his new blog The Hypothetical Library, where he designs covers for books by real authors that will never exist. This week he is also guest-blogging about book design over at the Best American Poetry blog. One of his […]

For the next two weeks, I’ll be touring France with 11 other American authors as part of the Centre National du Livre’s annual Belles Etrangères festival. A film crew came to my house over the summer and shot a bunch of footage for an hour-long documentary which will be screened in Paris on Monday night. […]
