For today’s New York Times about mindfulness conferences. It’s rather massive, so here are some details too (spot the Yoga Detective).
Thanks to AD Barbara Richer!
A comic I did for NYT’s Private Lives column, thanks to AD Alexandra Zsigmond. You’ll notice the published version has three panels edited out and the girl in the first two panels is replaced with various things. The full version has a nicer pacing with the dual timeline, but it would’ve been too heavy and cluttered to go with the article.
Also, since I had to do it in a hotten humid land far away from home it’s my first fully digital piece for NYT, which finally gives me an opportunity to recommend Kyle T.Webster’s brushes. For this one I used “brush beauty.”
Finally, APE this weekend. I’m not tabling, but I’ll be at the Ten Years of the Cartoon Art Museum panel and I’ll bring some of my recent zines and comics with me in case you recognize me. If you’re in town, my originals from Picnic Ruined are currently exhibited at CAM, next to the toilets.
For a NYT article on not sharing work-in-progress, something I can very much relate to. Thanks to AD Matt Dorfman!
Myself, I feel completely paralyzed when people ask me ooh what’s your book about. I never have a decent reply readily available and whatever I come up with just confuses people and reminds me why I should never talk to anyone. Yet there’s this strange urge to have some confirmation from another person… It’s no surprise that the only things of mine I like are those made with no audience or purpose in mind.
A little tornpaper thing I made for NYT Book Review of Louis Begley’s ‘Memories of a Marriage.’ Thanks AD Nicholas Blechman!
Two. I sold out of Cling, and I can’t be bothered to reprint it, so you can just read it for free here.
A quick spot illo for today’s Times about sequels, past & present. I’m a big fan of repetition, repetition and repetition, but I must say, some of these modern movies that you see these days are really pushing the limit—the Seventh Seal, come o~on.
Thanks to AD Sarah Williamson!
And this is what my illustration for today’s NYT Op-Ed looks like in print. Thanks to AD Matt Dorfman for a great assignment and an even greater layout to match my drawing. The article itself is rather upsetting
PS. This is the only post this week that doesn’t involve a shameless plug for my Kickstarter campaign.
A tiny twoowinch NYT OP-Ed about self-reliance, thanks to AD Alexandra Zsigmond.
Excuses: 1. Drew it with a broken nib, realized the fact only by the end.
