Hey wow, I’ve been nominated for a National Cartoonists Society Reuben Award for book illustration for my work on Dear Flyary.

I’ll have two books debuting at TCAF this May, and here’s a first look at the covers.
First, Destination X from Nobrow Press, a nice little 52-page hardcover pulp sci-fi comic book that I’m pretty excited about.
Secondly, an 80-page Machine Gum collection from my friends at La Pastéque. Technically it’s a French edition, but of course the comics are wordless.
I’ll post more about each book as TCAF draws near.
The music video I made for Jim Guthrie’s song Monsters (from the Indie Game: The Movie soundtrack) will be screening at the TIFF Kids International Film Festival in April.
Big news! I had the thrill of creating an illustrated version of Abbott and Costello’s Who’s on First? for Quirk Books. The classic comedy routine was one of my favourite things ever as a kid, and just about the closest I ever came to caring about baseball. The book is out today! Here’s the cover and a few of my favourite spreads.
I’ve been too busy to participate in Hourly Comics Day until just now.
Here’s a two-page adaptation of Robertson Davies’s Fifth Business that I drew for Canadian Notes and Queries last year.
Fifth Business is one of my favourite books, so I didn’t have to think too hard about which scene to draw. Young Dunstan Ramsay poring over books about an arcane artform in the Deptford library mirrors my own experiences as a young library nerd discovering the world of comics.
