I’m going away in November/December to finish my NYC book, but in the mean time, here are some things to look at/do/see!
Actress and writer Eden Sher wrote a book called The Emotionary, which I illustrated. We’re having our release party with a slideshow and signing at Skylight Books in Los Angeles, at 5pm, Saturday Oct. 22nd. Can’t attend? then buy the book online or at your local book store. (local bookstore encouraged!)
As for more illustration, here’s a New York Times piece about vanishing stores that I illustrated.
I’m super excited to be included in the new Best American Comics 2016! Order it online or in book and comic book stores now!
I won’t be doing any more events for the rest of 2016, but I will continue to post new history comics on the New Yorker and new then/now cityscapes on Harper’s.
And as always, TopatoCo is selling mugs, totes, shirts, prints and more!
Hey check this out, I drew six NYC storefronts for this New York Times article about disappearing NYC businesses.
Some of my favorite ones:
This article was super fun to illustrate but also kind of a bummer since I loved many of these places as well.
In other news, I’m back in the bay area and working on my NYC history book. I don’t know how long I’ll be here, but it’ll most likely be at least a few years. However, next year I will be in NYC for awhile when my book comes out. I’ll be doing signings/stand up/readings all over the city, and if you’d like to book me for something, email me at juliajwertz (at) gmail and hopefully we can work something out!
My online store for original art & TopatoCo for mugs, prints, t-shirts, totes and more!
