The Bullet Train

In late 1996 I was in a mood to travel. There was an impasse in my life and, as with similar confusing junctions before and since, I hit the road, spending Christmas in Britain with friends, planning to head to Paris in the New Year, by way of the train through the CHUNNEL. Nobody was riding the EUROSTAR train that [READ MORE…]

The Sketchbook

Last year, during a visit to New York, my buddy Dave gave me a beautifully leather bound sketchbook he’d bought in Italy but never used. Despite being exactly the kind of posh sketchbook that I’m normally too intimidated by to actually draw in (the watercolour paper is clearly of a higher quality than my timid scrawls are yet worthy of) [READ MORE…]

New York

Lately I have been running around a lot traveling hither and thither. Last week was spent in New York City, visiting my pals Rhode and Dave. This photo shows us all sitting in central Park sketching the local scene, which happened to be teeming with eccentrics on that particular day, including a guy dressed as Batman riding around on a [READ MORE…]

Dave Gordon

This sketch of my buddy Dave Gordon was done in early 1997 when he, I and mutual friend Tony Stacchi all visited Paris during a very chilly winter indeed.

Smitten

My good pal David Gordon has been writing and illustrating charming children’s books for a few years now (such as THE THREE LITTLE RIGS and THE UGLY TRUCKLING). His latest story is a collaboration with his girlfriend Susan and, appropriately enough, it is a charming love story between two articles of lost laundry; a sock and a mitten, entitled SMITTEN.This [READ MORE…]

My Comic-Con Shopping list

Normally at this time of year, leading up to Comic Con, I would be powering up my personal Hype Machine and trying to whet your appetites for one of my own books. This time however I haven’t cooked anything new (or rather, it is still baking) but you don’t need to go hungry as I have some recommendations of other [READ MORE…]

The Ugly Truckling

My buddy David Gordon‘s charming new children’s book, THE UGLY TRUCKLING just got a nice review in the NEW YORK TIMES. I’ve seen the book on display in lots of bookstores, so if you want to pick up a copy for your kids it shouldn’t be hard to find. Or you could try short interview the man himself at the [READ MORE…]
