This week I posted my 100th End Strip on Patreon (actually, 102nd- I mistakenly gave a couple of strips the same numbers). End Strips are short comics drawn in a vertical format on random strips of paper, usually ones trimmed from larger sheets by my daughter Rebecca for some school project or another. These have tended to fall into a few main groups: drawings of celebrities from my various clippings folders:

The Modern Love Podcast has recycled another of my illustrations from the New York Times column. On this week’s podcast, the actress Kyra Sedgwick reads Ellen Graf’s essay “Our Joy Knows No Bounds, or Lanes,” about a love that transcends language and bad driving.
Ms. Graf is a writer and sculptor who lives in upstate New York. Stay tuned after the reading for a catchup with her and reflections from the Modern Love editor Daniel Jones.
