My most recent illustration for the Modern Love Podcast appeared yesterday. From the website:
“Looking to revitalize your marriage? Try buying a $400 sex chair. It could work wonders — or it could be co-opted as a cool new toy by your 7-year-old son. On this week’s Modern Love podcast, Kristen Bell reads “The Plain, Unmarked Box Arrived,” an essay about one couple’s ambitious attempt to escape the doldrums of parenthood.

Here is another in my irregular series of posts about stories in my 24 hour comic collection SLEEPLESS, published this spring by Dark Horse. I drew “Now Open The Box”, 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 I was then illustrating 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.

Big news for fans of my 24 hour comics (in case you don’t already know, I am the World Record Holder in meeting the challenge devised by Scott McCloud, to produce an entire 24 page comic book in a single day– I have done 16 of these one-day epics so far). Plans are in the works for a second collection, titled SLEEPLESS AND OTHER STORIES: DAVID CHELSEA’S 24-HOUR COMICS, VOL. 2, to be published next year by Dark Horse (the first Dark Horse collection, EVERYBODY GETS IT WRONG! AND OTHER STORIES: DAVID CHELSEA’S 24-HOUR COMICS, VOL. 1, came out in 2013).
