I did a pretty bitchin’ piece on the central villains of the Mad Max movies for the A.V. Club. Check it out!
This is a project I’ve seen various permutations of around the internet and I’ve always really enjoyed the results. My daughter Lulu and I each started a drawing and had the other finish it. Then I colored both of the final sketches in Photoshop. It’s a really satisfying process.

I have a new illustrated feature up at the A.V. Club. It’s part of a fantastic series on bodies in video games. Go check it out.
I was fortunate enough to be able to help my friend, Tom, create a series of illustrations for a TEDx talk he gave on education reform. Tom; Mr. Rad as he’s known by his students, is this year’s Minnesota teacher of the year and doing some amazing stuff.
I’ve begun a monthly feature on the A.V. Club where I do a comic based around a notable object from pop culture. The first is up now. Read and be amazed by close-enough-to-be-recognizable-in-context depictions of Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood.
It was a blessedly warm and spiriting day in Minneapolis today. Staying inside wasn’t even a consideration given the fascist regime of winter, where even a glance outside was met with a crack across the face and a hard admonishment to remain indoors.
But there were still some barriers to enjoying the day to its fullest. Well, for some. The tiny creature on my back, mounted like an Emir in her elephant’s howdah, seemed happily unconcerned.
I love this old picture of me, because I think it’s the platonic ideal of a teenager. While the details are era-specific, I think the whole thing communicates the intrinsic state of pubescence since humanity began. I can just imagine some paleolithic kid responding with the same can’t-be-bothered snide look when asked to help cure the mammoth pelt.
