Living in a new country in a new language is fun because you discover all sorts of new ways to make a fool of yourself.  
Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

A few weeks ago I threatened to do some actual blogging about being here in Buenos Aires. I suppose I should actually follow through with it now, so here goes… I’m here because I met Argentinian cartoonist Fran López when we were both invited to be guests at the Entreviñetas comics festival in Colombia. I was just...

Colombia Sketchbook

I’m currently in Colombia for the Entreviñetas comics festival, which has me going from Medellin to Armenia to Bogota with a bunch of other cartoonists from all over Latin America, North America and Europe. I’m taking a break from festival activities in Salento with Argentine cartoonist Fran López and fellow American, Anders Nilsen, who just...

Version Française

I am currently living in Angoulême as an artist in residence at the Maison des Auteurs. The MdA is part of the Cité Internationale de la Bande Dessinée et de l’Image, and it welcomes cartoonists and animators from France and abroad to come to Angoulême and have a place to focus on their projects in...

London Sketchbook

Last week I went to London for an assignment for the Jewish Quarterly, a cultural journal based there who I do comics for. It was Jewish Book Week and they asked me to come to make a piece about it. The illustrated essay I’m making from it will be coming soon, but for now, here’s...
The festival that was: Angoulême 2012

The festival that was: Angoulême 2012

Well, THAT was something.                   Bear with me; I’ve never done a “con report” or a “festival recap” before. I think they often involve the blogger talking about the convention day by day, being very thorough about covering everything important that happened, the most buzzed about books and news and who’s...
A Walk Around Angoulême

A Walk Around Angoulême

In the year leading up to coming here, I would tell people that I was moving to Angoulême for 7 months and would get different reactions depending on where the person I was talking to was from. If they were American, they would usually sigh and say “oh how wonderful to live in France for...
Occupy Miami

Occupy Miami

While in Miami for the Miami Book Fair in November of 2011, I headed over to Peace City to see what the local Occupy movement was up to for Cartoon Movement’s Occupy Sketchbook series.  http://www.cartoonmovement.com/comic/22  
Pierre Feuille Ciseaux

Pierre Feuille Ciseaux

From October 2 until the 9th I was here in Arc-et-Senans, France, for the 3rd installment of Pierre Feuille Ciseaux. Its a little hard to describe what exactly PFC is…its a residency, an art retreat, an OuBaPo (comics either done alone or in small groups based on constraints) workshop, and a festival. I came in 2009...
Back in Israel

Back in Israel

I’m back for the first time since doing the trip four years ago…this time for a conference and then for some reporting out of the West Bank. Here’s a little quick comic about getting through passport control which I was a bit nervous about..
