Wedding Invitations

Did some illustrations for wedding invitations. The couple's names are Tim and Tami, so they had me draw things that are called "Tim Tam," like a popular racehorse, a semi-famous dog, and a packaged cookie. The printer blogged about it here.

I made this comic for a birthday present.
This is a snapshot of it.

Knicks drawings

The Knicks season has started off well, and I've been doing quick drawings after each victory. (If you're counting, you know they've won 7, but there are only six here. I missed a drawing because of travel.)

Biographile: Leonard Cohen and Neil Young

There's a new biography of Leonard Cohen out called I'm Your Man by Sylvie Simmons, who also wrote a Serge Gainsbourg bio. And Neil Young has written memoir called Waging Heavy Peace. Biographile asked me to check them out and draw something. Here's what I came up with. 

They are on the Biographile website here and here.
