"Now Open The Box was my tenth 24 Hour Comic, at the Cosmic Monkey Drawpocalypse event on April 5-6 2008. I loosely based it on that week's Modern Love column, which l illustrate for the Style Section of the New York Times. That piece, by Lori Jakiela, was about a couple who buy a sex chair online but find themselves too embarrassed to test it out after their seven year old son appropriates it as a battleground for his plastic army men. That's fine for a family newspaper, but l figure such coyness would never be tolerated in comics, so my couple definitely get the chair. l drew this on isometric graph paper, which gives the panels a look like old-school video games or architectural drawings. The view approximates that of a spectator in a high balcony watching a stage production through opera glasses." More
"Jesusland was drawn in the immediate aftermath of the 2004 election, when Democrats were in shock and awe at how thoroughly John Kerry had been routed by the Republicans working off of Karl Rove's playbook. Particularly shocking to me was how Protestant Evangelicals and The Catholic Church, which had always been historic enemies, now had teamed up to defeat a Catholic candidate. This fantasy about a battle to establish a state religion was my way of getting those two groups at each other's throats again. Also it gave me a chance to draw President Bush as a rabbit."More
