"Tyranny is always better organized than Freedom."

Below is an illustration I did this week for a really nice multi-faceted piece by Philip Roth, in the Sunday Review section of the New York Times. It's a remembrance of a former teacher and friend who'd been a casualty of anti-communist witch hunts in the fifties, among other things. A few alternate versions follow the accepted one below.

A few last sketchbook spreads from Luzern, including the view from my room at the Hochschule, and a drawing of Stefano Ricci waiting for an enchilada.

Une Histoire Drole

If you feel like hearing what I sound like dubbed into French, this just went online. It's from an interview I did about Big Questions at Angouleme. The only parts I could understand were "histoire drole" and "metaphysique" and "minimaliste". Which just about sums it up, I guess. Especially with the revving motorcycle at the end. I'm going to close all my interviews like that from now on.
