Play: We just saw Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile, which got me to thinking that I’d love to see Nathan Lane playing the part of Hercule Poirot. And that got me to thinking about drawing him in the role, about incorporating some clues and elements of the mystery into the hieroglyphs … and, well, the next thing you know, it’s drawn.

Work: A few recent assignments (and come to think of it, work is play).

Below, for The New Republic about the Obama administration stepping up their criticism of Chavez’s increasing authoritarianism.
Below, this one about poverty in the suburbs, for The Utne Reader:
