I made so many post-its this years' Post-It show at GR2 that I made a mini out of them. It's called 31 Drawings That Have Something To Do With Being In Love And Not Being In Love. It has some of the better drawings I've ever done, I think. It would make a nice sort of weirdly romantic present for someone for the holidays. It refutes isolation.

I just reconnected with a bunch of my friends from my year in Japan on facebook so I've been drawing a little about my time there. All these girls are my fellow first-years in the racing kayak team; they are some of the coolest people I've ever known.

Two of the most interesting and vibrant cartoonists working today are Lisa Hanawalt and Jillian Tamaki. I was very excited to do a talk with both of them at the Society of Illustrators in February; if you missed it you can now check out this video of the event. Lisa and Jillian are both very inspiring - examples of their early work are especially fun to see. I am personally pleased that I didn't throw up. I was really, really nervous.

I went to New York in February and drew a lot there. Here are some sketches: including a drawing of Lisette Model, a photographer with the Photo League. I learned about her at the The Radical Camera exhibit at The Jewish Museum - in this photo Model is in the middle of a crowded jazz club with a monstrous camera and a huge bag of flash bulbs.
