I took part in Comics&Cola’s Shelfies feature, in which cartoonists share photos and write about their bookshelves and comics collections. I also picked three childhood favourites to focus on. Click through to have a peek.
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 just received my copies of Nobrow 6, packed full of comics by too many great people to name, including one by myself, and pals Luke Pearson, Joe Lambert, Michael Deforge, Matt Forsythe, Jesse Jacobs, and like I say — too many to name. And a cover by Tom Gauld! Get yours.
Hey look, it’s me! Starring in Backwards Day, the iPad kids’ book I illustrated for JibJab Jr. The book is now live in the app store, and I couldn’t be happier with it how it turned out. JibJab has corralled a team of great illustrators to put out a book a month, all of which can be personalized to make your child the star of the book.
Too many apps published under the guise of “kids’ books” are so full of interactive things to touch and figure out and play with that they’re more like games than books. All of that extra junk gets in the way of what books are for, which is reading. JibJab Jr. books have a single interactive element: turning the page. So I am proud to be part of a series of iPad books that are books first, and apps second.
From the looks of this photo from Matt Forsythe, it looks like Carton is in stores, at least in Montreal. Availability online is another story, but it does have an Amazon.ca listing free of any pesky information or details.
