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!

The book got a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly!  I had a blast drawing Allison’s script for some recipe comics. This book is going to be hilarious and packed with great recipes!

This week I’m guesting again on the awesome podcast, Schlock Treatment! Listen to the episode here (or you can download it via itunes or stitcher)! We talk all about the movie Barbarella. One thing I love about this movie is all of the fun costumes. So, I was inspired to do a few illustrations. Enjoy!
