  • About Me

    Cartoonist/illustrator/humorist for the New York Times, New Yorker, Reader's Digest, Sports Illustrated and other publications. Author of the new book, The History of the Snowman. Split my time between NYC and Hamlin, PA. Avid tennis player. working on my second book about arctic exploration in an office redone to look like a ship's quarters.

    Why do you write?

    A desire to entertain and the challenges that come with that fuel my ambition. I joined this site because I admire two of the writers instrumental to Fictionaut, my dear friends Jurgen and Marcy. My initial visit to the site left a great impression with me and I would like to be a part of it.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Colson Whitehead, John Marchese...but most of what I read is by absurd people, diaries of explorers, historians. Books I recently read and loved include Michael Palin's Diaries, Bob Mankoff's The Naked Cartoonist, Liza Donnelly's Funny Ladies.
