You can now read my first piece "Remembering Futurism," about the early 20th-century Italian Futurist movement. In a few months I'll start posting the full comics to this site. Thanks for reading!

This is the second of a set of comics I drew for Red Lemon Club, a site with articles and resources for creative professionals started by illustrator Alex Mathers. The secret to success in any creative field includes a cape, a Holden Caulfied hat, and a small herd of trained elephants.

This comic is factual, but it requires a couple clarifications: Wallace Stevens was an executive at an insurance company, not your average insurance salesman. And there's no evidence that Emily Dickinson liked cats, but her sister Lavinia was cat-obsessed. So Emily must have been forced to cat-sit occasionally.

This drawing appears alongside a NYT Opinionator Draft essay by Henry Hitchings about the use of nominalization in writing. One type of nominalization is the appropriation of verbs as nouns, leading to attention-grabbing (and annoyance-inducing) phrases like the ones found in this comic. You can also see the illustration and article in print in the March 31 NYT Sunday Review. Thanks to AD Matt Dorfman for the gig!
