My essay (and cover illustration) at Scratch

All about how, inspired by Cary Grant's character in "Holiday," I decided to "retire young and work old." Seriously. I did that: Do not try this at home. Did I mention I "retired" BEFORE getting a job?

Me, selling a cartoon!

On 60 Minutes! I appear a couple of times, and my sold cartoon also! Very exciting. My parents were very reassured. That's my editor, Bob Mankoff. Here's a link, in case there's trouble loading it on my page.

I won a writing contest

I won a writing contest at ToastingTheTown.com and read it for this fundraiser at the Nat Sherman Townhouse. Ten thousand dollars was raised for POTS!

my debut in Cosmo!

I did this piece for Cosmo, about how when I was younger I used to change my wardrobe to play the part of each girlfriend I was to each guy I dated. It was quite unconscious, and I only realized I did it in retrospect. What to do when you realize something like that? Well, you just write and draw about it.

Here's one look. That's a roof beam I'm dragging to my garret in Paris, for an art project.

new work

I also have had a few cartoons in The New Yorker since I last updated this site, of which I'm equally proud. Here is the latest:

There have been others, but you'll have to ask my Dad about them, he's keeping track. ;)
