2017 news: You can now pre-order my NYC book, Tenements, Towers & Trash: An Unconventional, Illustrated History of New York City. It’s a collection of history comics, then/now cityscapes, some autobio stuff, some random illustrations. Some of the comics originally appeared on the New Yorker and Harper’s, but over half the material is new/unpublished. The official release is Oct. 3rd, and I’ll be doing a lot of events in October/November, some of them listed here, and I’m adding more so check back!  Instagram is probably the best way to keep up with me in regards to current info, other social media links on the right toolbar.

2016 stuff to look at:


As for 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 also have a six pager in “Cartoons of the year 2016” New Yorker issue, on stands Nov. 15h. You can see the piece here if you can’t get the magazine.


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!)


I won’t be doing any more events for the rest of 2016, but I will continue to post new  comics on the New Yorker and new then/now cityscapes on Harper’s.

Get prints, mugs, shirts, totes and more at TopatoCo, and original artwork can be bought from me
