Hi Google+! It's been a while! I thought I'd check in to... Hello?... Hello?... Hmmmmm.... OK... well...  Just in case anyone is reading this, I've been doing a new weekly comic strip called Next Week in NYC! for the New York Observer. If you can't pick up the paper (?!) it's also available free online. Sam Henderson has a comic there each week, too, so you know it's worth the click. You can check out the past few weeks worth at the link below. New strips appear there every Tuesday or Wednesday or so. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure that store is a Starbucks now.

Tough choice, I know. That is, until we ran out of pie. Now it's a no-brainer. Seriously!

This small green sign at the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and 108th Street in Queens caught my eye while I was stopped at the corner for the red light. It took a second for the oddness of it to hit me.

You'll catch more than just a glimpse of the moon (or two) in this week's All-New Cartoon Boy Adventure Hour! (Only on Act-i-vate!) Thongs for checking it out! http://www.act-i-vate.com/103-2-25.comic

Has Google+ made it really difficult to link to the picassa site that houses the G+ photos or is it me? There used to be a manage photos link that brought you right to the picassa site so you could rearrange, add, delete and check views, etc? Now it looks like they want you to download some picassa app or something? I now can only find that link if I go to the help section re: photos. Am I missing something?

Thanks, Ivana! I thought it was just me. As an artist, I really liked the way G+ handled photo/pic management and they've made it so difficult. Which is really odd. They didn't remove the features, they just hid them so as to make it nearly impossible to find. I just don't get it and will probably just stop using it. Please google fix this! Post and share please!

This week's Cartoon Boy may be a little hard to swallow. But c'mon! Swallowing is one of the things you do best! Right?! Well, in the very least head over to the Activate site and give it a lick. (Really! Try it! You'll like it!)

Well, it was a bureaucratic nightmare, but I finally got the city to post that new traffic sign out in front of the house.

Hey! Check out this new mag stuffed to bursting with comix stuff. There's a bit about me, too, if you're into that sort of thing. It's a dollar and it's cool. Go.

Since today is Dr.Seuss' birthday I thought I'd post this little comic I did back in 2001. It's a little mash-up between Seuss and Edward Gorey. Enjoy!

Good Grief! Charlie Brown was right. Christmas HAS gotten too commercial! I mean look at all those licensed Peanut character ornaments on my tree. Oh, and Space Ghost, Yogi Bear, Jetsons, Speed Racer, Dr. Suess, etc, etc. How many can you spot?

I know I haven't come out with a new print comic in a little while but there are still plenty of my "old" comics that you have never read so they'll still be new to you. Why not visit my lonely Fontanelle Press comic book empire/website located on the very edge of the internet before it falls off the web completely. There's lots of comics and minis for sale there in the catalogue section that would make for some nice x-mas gifts. I take Paypal if that helps! And while you're there you can check out some of the free comics you can read right online!
