Down the street from my apartment in Brooklyn, there’s a great place called the McCarren Park Track. It’s perfect for people and animal watching, running, playing soccer, showing off muscles, stretching, reading, and lots of other things. Here are some sketches from a recent visit.
In the latest Philip cartoon, Tallulah reinterprets Botticelli for the Brooklyn Public Library.

You can see the final cartoon here!
When I was a college cartoonist, I used a nib pen (also known as a dip pen because you dip the metal tip in ink). Nib pens are great because you can get a lot of variation in the thickness of your line. The downside: they’re messy and hate to travel.
Drawing Philip the Sea Lion is fun fun fun! Here’s a sketch I did recently for Philip on the High Line.
Here’s the final drawing: http://philipthesealion.wordpress.com/2011/11/29/philip-the-sea-lion-5/.
You should visit the real High Line if you haven’t already. You can find more info here: http://www.thehighline.org/. In other news, I’m planning to open my very own Etsy store! With prints and mugs for sale. Stay tuned~~
