Pig Latin Redux


As "Wayne's World 2" definitively proved, the sequel is never as good as the original. Still, I wanted to find out what happened to that intrepid pig.

Sunday Dialogue Illustration


After spending a couple days on the beaches of New England, I had the opportunity to illustrate the Sunday Dialogue for the New York Times Sunday Review. The topic was the (unfairly?) maligned baby boomer generation. I shamelessly included images from my seaside sketchbook: a sailboat, rocky coastline, and an aggressive seagull.

Toque Cada Dia Como Jazz


The inimitable Iris Abramof offered to translate some of my comics into Portuguese, and I happily said yes. She's tackled a number of my favorite Incidental Comics from the past couple years. I'll post the Portuguese translations regularly this month along with links to the original versions. My hope is that I can parlay these drawings into a trip to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup or the 2016 Summer Olympics - maybe I could serve as ambassador of webcomics? Thanks again to Iris for her help.

Read the English version here: Play Each Day Like Jazz

Please note that posters of the translated comics are available at my print shop.

Pig Latin



In my exhaustive research for today's comic, I read that John Steinbeck often signed his books with a drawing of the Pigasus, a mythical flying pig. He also included the Latin motto "Ad astra per alas porci":
"To the stars on the wings of a pig."

You can order a poster here.
