January 1st, 2015

Big news! The book I’ve been working on over the last few years, Cool Japan Guide: Fun in the Land of Manga, Lucky Cats and Ramen, is available for pre-order right now! The official release date is March 10th 2015, and I’ll be on tour this year for it, so let me know if I should come to your town! This is my first non-fiction book and also my first full-color book. It’s a fun, fully-illustrated, cartoon guide to traveling in Japan and features amusing stories and anecdotes as well. Whether you’re planning a trip to Japan or not, this is a fun read!

You can pre-order from NY indie store McNally Jackson here! Plus, here’s a B&N link and here’s an Indiebound link. You can pre-order it from Powell’s too. And Amazon has it too of course (link below)!


Exclusive Robicelli’s Comic!

December 17th, 2014

Hurray! The Robicelli’s book, Robicelli’s: A Love Story, with Cupcakes: With 50 Decidedly Grown-Up Recipes, is out now! I thought it would be fun to share these comic pages I collaborated on with Allison when the book was in the pitching stage. These pages are not in the book, but I think they’ll give you a good idea of the fun tone of the book!

Hope you all have a wonderful New Year!

Looking back on 2013, I didn’t get to post as many dessert comics as I would have liked. But there is a very good reason for that! Every day, I was working on a new project that will be announced very soon! So hold on tight, you’ll be seeing a whole new book full of my art out in Fall of 2014. In the meantime, here are some of my highlights!

I’m on the Schlock Treatment Podcast!

December 8th, 2013

In addition to comics and desserts, you may know (via my Twitter feed) that I love cheesy and campy movies. I listen to various podcasts as I draw, and one of my recent faves is Schlock Treatment! It features four hilarious guys who watch schlocky movies and joke around about them. It’s been a staple for me the past several months, and I was honored to be invited to guest host this week. Since it’s December, we watched Jingle All the Way. I don’t recommend the movie, but I DO recommend you listen to us having fun joking around about the movie, as well as toys, cookies, Japanese bathroom technology, Spider-Man, and various other topics of interest. I encourage you to subscribe to their podcast via itunes, Stitcher Radio, or just listen to it streaming on their site. Click here to listen!
