I have a page in the recently published Anthology of Graphic Fiction, vol. 2, edited by Ivan Brunetti and published by Yale UP (cover above, by Daniel Clowes). Like the first volume, this is a beautifully produced collection of great comics. I am flattered to be in a book with Eugene Teal!

Onsmith and I have a 4-page comic in this month's issue of Chicago Artists' News, a monthly newspaper published by the Chicago Artists' Coalition.
Our assignment was to treat, in comics form, the topic of "comics in Chicago." I scripted and thumbnailed a piece that turned out (surprise) to be more obscurely allegorical than enlighteningly journalistic. I drew the first two pages of it; Onsmith drew the second two. I don't know what the readers of the paper made of our effort--I hope they liked it. I do know that it was a gas to collaborate with Onsmith.
I'm posting my two pages here; his two are up at his blog. .
