Today I mailed out the first batch of Sketchbook – Issue Two! I’ll be dropping more off at the post office over the coming days, so subscribers, watch your mailboxes!!!
This issue features a number of situations that came to mind while listening to a radio program discussing the feasibility of growing potatoes on Mars.
Coots on Canals
There are also a few images of my experiences while living on a little canal boat in London.
You can see more of the first two issues here.

This past Autumn I launched a new illustration magazine! Twice each year, subscribers of Sketchbook will receive a collection of all-new unpublished illustrations, developed from my sketchbooks.
Issue 1: Fire and Ice Cream. Gelato and Engine 55, in New York’s Little Italy neighborhood.
Summer in Italy is my first issue’s theme. My actual summer in Italy was over a decade ago, so this publication is a sort of nostalgic daydream Atlas of Italy.
Here I am in New York, looking at Sketchbook, in front of the fire station depicted on the cover.
You can see more of the first issue here.
There are still a few copies of issue 1 left. Issue 2 will ship in 2017. If you are an art buyer or art director, you can subscribe for FREE here.

An absolute tonne of mail, art and mail-art has passed through Box 6704. It’s all stitched together in stacks of encyclopaedia-like folios, numbered and date-stamped.
Emptied my post office box for the last time this week. I opened this box at Station A when I moved to Toronto — the rent was $20/year. Now it’s $200! 😦
