all about me

March 15th, 2011

David Paccia wrote last week asking if I’d contribute to a survey of illustrators and cartoonists that he posts at his blog David-Wasting-Paper. I was happy to oblige, and the survey was posted last night. If you’ve always wondered what kind of paper I like to draw on and whether or not I am right-handed, here you go.
Go forth and learn.

See this pretty face?

November 12th, 2009


Get a good look. I’m shaving today for a good cause.
See, last month I ran a few miles for brain cancer and raised $750. Now I’m doing something much more difficult. Just as I did last year, I’ve signed up to grow a dorky mustache for a month. This has its benefits, of course, as I’m raising money for schools in doing so. Please visit my Mustaches for Kids: Donors Choose page and do what you can do.
Here’s info about M4K Philly.
So today I shave the mess that is my pretty face and will photograph the slow growth each day for a month. Stay tuned.

This lovely Spring day makes me think of bicycles. So I thought I’d post a movie taken last September of me.

Moments later, redemption.

Mustaches for Kids: day 22

December 4th, 2008


Long delay between posts, I know. I was away for the Thanksgiving.
Finally people see me and say, they say “he has a moustache.” The problem is the next thing that they say is likely “I need to keep him away from my kids” or “I didn’t know he was a cop.”
You can see more pictures here.

Mustaches for Kids: day 6 I think

November 18th, 2008


I shaved today, so the wheat is separated from the chaff. Jay and Adam probably have giant furry animals growing on their lips.

Mustaches for Kids: Day 1

November 13th, 2008


The lovely and talented Adam Rex convinced me to sign up for this thing wherein I will grow a mustache over the next 30 days, and it will somehow help underfunded schools. What’s not to like?
Of course, whether or not it helps the schools is up to you, since you need to go over to this page or follow the link on the thing there on the right, and donate a little cash.
According to the rules, I had to shave clean this morning, and I shall take pictures of the progress as often as possible. It’s not fair if you don’t pledge.
Yes yes, I asked for your money a few weeks ago for the brain cancer run, and I’m doing it again. It’s that time of year.

solidarity head shave

solidarity head shave
solidarity head shave

In preparation for her hopefully-cancer-removing surgery on Monday, and because it was falling out in clumps due to chemo, Mom had a head-shaving party tonight at my sister’s house in Arkansas. In solidarity, i decided to shave mine as well.
We set up the cameras and the video chat, I showed the kids how to use the clippers, and we went a-buzzin’.

me and Mom

A few weeks ago, my mom learned that she had come down with a bad case of the brain cancer. Specifically, an Astrocytoma Grade 4 Glioblastoma. She’s fighting it like Mike Tyson and I’m running 5k to support her. There’s a “Race for Hope” here in Philly on November 2 and if you’re reading this, I’d like your support.
Take a minute and go to this page and see if you can make a donation.
Thanks

I'm 40 today.

me

A new book about children’s books was just published and I’m interviewed in it. Written by Martin Salisbury, it involves showing some work and interviewing many of my favorite artists inclucing Alexis Deacon, Shaun Tan, and Sara Fanelli. It’s mostly European and Asian in direction. The only two Americans, in fact, are J. Otto and myself. Go get it. I’m in some fantastic company and I’m just really pleased. (For the record, the quote regarding Lane Smith was misinterpreted. I was going to play accordion at one Lane Smith signing, but it never actually happened. Lane’s cool with it…)
