Say yes to cheese and grapes.

Take a pause to really see what you’ve accomplished, and celebrate it. Today, I’m celebrating the release of my new podcast.

La Perdida cocktail

Matt is a huge cocktail fanatic, and invented this amazing drink in honor of the la Perdida book release. Try it; you won’t be sorry. Well, maybe a little sorry if you have more than a couple. It’s delicious (and deceptively “quaffable”…might as well be called La Noche Perdida (the Lost Night)). 1 oz. silver


pastel vasco: almond cake with almond-orange cream filling

Pastel vasco, also known as gateau basque, is the national pie/cake of the Basque people in southwest France/northeast Spain. Matt and I first had it in San Sebastian/Donostia (that’s the Basque name for the town) in 2006, and fell deeply in love.


Cordão de Ouro

This capoeira strip ran in Pulse! Magazine. It’s one of the few collaborative comics Matt and I have ever done.


Team Trash

I sit here just having finished the major inking on the first volume of Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars, a task I could not have completed without a teeming studio full of assistants and interns. I salute you, Team Trash!


Bookends, or, 40s are the new awesome.

Matt and I, and our kids, are picking up and moving to France in September, for a year. In some ways, the difficulty of shifting a fully adult life under full steam to a new track adds to the thrill. We will have been parents almost 5 years, in this house 10 years, teaching at SVA 11 years, in NYC 12 years. It’s more than time, beyond time, for a change.
