Five pages of The City will appear in the first issue of Gorse, a new Irish arts/literary journal launching in January! Take a look at the full list of amazing contributors and pre-order your copy RIGHT THIS INSTANT.

I mean, you don’t have to. But you’ll probably be pleased that you did if you do.

Big in Finland

For that Finnish-speaking Finnegans Wake enthusiast in your life, here’s a treat in time for Christmas. It might have been as much as a year ago that I was asked to contribute an essay to an anthology on Finnegans Wake entitled What Does Finnegans Wake Mean? In Finnish. Obviously I jumped at the chance. I’ve seen my illustrations in print a few times now, but I think this is the first time something I’ve written has been published. It’s very exciting, of course, but also disorienting to see my name above an essay I can’t read. I wish I could read the whole book, as the scraps that I’ve taken the time to transcribe into Google Translate have seemed very promising. Each of the essays is also illustrated with one of my pictures! Many thanks to the editor, Ville-Juhani Sutinen! If you do read Finnish, you can take a look at the publisher’s website here.

MODCOM by Minnie Moskowitz

I designed the wordmark on the cover of Modcom, the new EP by French electro-pop band Minnie Moskowitz. Go give it a listen, they’re coolissimes!

The City: There isn’t much time now

Today’s page of The City marks the beginning of an ongoing storyline. I’m a bit nervous.

I really enjoyed doing this series of illustrations for Vestoj Magazine, to illustrate an article about the justice system’s sexist attitude to the fashion industry.

Promotional Mailers

I’ve just finished preparing my first ever batch of promotional mailers. I had big ideas of putting together some kind of fancy package, but decided not to get too clever for my first attempt. Fly, my pretties!

The City in Modern Painters

Page one of The City features in the May issue of Modern Painters magazine! Let’s take a tour, shall we?

I’ve never been so pleased to see Tracey Emin. She looks more ambivalent.
My comic. In print. OMG. (See it in legible form here.)
My photo is the only one that looks like a holiday snap because you know why.

Baby picture of the Universe

My editorial career has claimed its first casuality: this illustration – about photographing the afterglow from the Big Bang – was killed in favour of photographs. Which was probably a good idea, actually.

China’s Massive Water Problem

Another IHT-riffic editorial illustration. (I’ll chuckle over that for weeks.) [link]

Another Earth

Here’s an alternate version of the SARS illustration that they didn’t go for. I’m really into the brush pen right now.

How SARS was contained

Another illustration for the Herald Tribune, for an op-ed about the international response to the SARS outbreak ten years ago.

International Herald Tribune

Here’s my first (is there an emoji for touching wood?) illustration for the International Herald Tribune, for an op-ed about the reconstruction of Japan after the tsunami.

The City Page

The City now has its own dedicated page, so that the words are big enough to actually read. Here it is!

The City: Art

Another page of The City. Expect the next update in ten million years.

Wednesday, February 13, 2013


Here it is, the FIRST COMPLETED PAGE of The City. It’s probably a little early to start posting, but if I don’t post something soon, I’ll forget how.

A Panel from “The City”

Here’s a panel from the first completed page of The City. I’m still working out the inking and lettering. I haven’t decided yet how many pages I’ll finish before I dare post a whole one. Maybe a thousand.
