[Generation Um...] When I set up this blog in 2001, one of the first things I did was write about the New-York-inspired cartoon above, and how an old, random conversation in’s Fanelli’s Bar with a buddy of mine, Mark L.

This is a video of one of my Moleskine drawings, currently hanging on the wall at gapingvoid Central. I don’t make too many of the Moleskine drawings, so they sell out quickly [though if you are ever in the market, I'm always happy to talk etc].
[We have another Holiday treat for you, which we sent out in yesterday's newsletter:] Ho Ho Hope you are having a great Holiday season so far! Back in the day, in New York, before we moved our minds online, the cool background for the holidays was the “Yule Log” – an endless video reel of [...]

I met Movenbank’s founder and [...]
Looking at our recent deck on Slideshare, I noticed all the clients we mentioned… Wow. There are some real blue-chips amongst them. I say “Wow” because I’m old enough to remember the days when, to have those kind of clients on your roster, you’d need to be a proper ad agency. A VERY large one. [...]
Very cool. We just did this awesome little video for Techcrunch Disrupt, the great tech conference in NYC and SF. This is going to be huge… N.B. The dinosaur’s name is “Thyroid”. I’ve been using him in cartoons on and off for over twenty years. He kinda sorta represents my mischievous/disruptive side, so he was [...]
