ladies and their pants




I have a spot illustration in the Op-Ed letters section of the NY Times today. It accompanies a letter regarding a previous article about the extreme variation in women's clothing sizing and the lack of a standard. Here's a little screenshot of it above, plus some of the idea sketches below.

shifting shadows

I have a new little book of images that will be released at the Stumptown fest in Portland this weekend! It's called Shifting Shadows, and it's part of the Little Otsu Living Things series, which is a new collection of mini art books in which different artists each explore one idea in 16 pages based around the theme of living things. Mine is all about the secret lives of shadows. You can get a copy here or at Stumptown this weekend. The other artists who have made Living Things books are Hannah Waldron, Jo Dery, and Lizzy Stewart, and they're all quite great.

smoke signal - kuti

I got to illustrate the cover and have a two page color comic in the newest issue of Smoke Signal, the free comics newspaper published by Desert Island in Brooklyn. For this issue, Desert Island teamed up with KutiKuti of Helsinki Finland, who publish my other favorite comics newspaper, Kuti!

This issue will be released in both Brooklyn and Helsinki, in both English and Finnish respectively. Here's a picture of the issue and the cover illustrations on both sides. My cover is shown on the left and on the right is the cover by Aapo Rapi (<3)

This issue includes 36 pages by these 32 artists: Sami Aho, Gabrielle Bell, Marc Bell, Michael DeForge, Roope Eronen, Glynnis Fawkes, Nathan Gelgud, Sam Henderson, Keith Jones, Paul Karasik, Ina Kallis, Tim Lane, Jarno Latva-Nikkola, Blaise Larmee, Mikko Luostarinen, David Mazzucchelli, Jesse McManus, Tommi Musturi, Jyrki Nissinen, Jaakko Pallasvuo, Ville Pirinen, Aapo Rapi, Ron Regé Jr., Anna Sailamaa, Kari Sihvohnen, Avi Spivak, Leslie Stein, Janne Tervamäki, Petteri Tikkanen, Jari Vaara, Amanda Vähämäki, Mikko Väyrynen, and myself.
