I just read an incredible comic by Katsuhiro Otomo, the guy who did Akira, called Domu. It is one of the best comics I've ever read, definitely! Here is a link to read it online, it's kind of difficult to get a hard copy of it..
I was born, raised and educated in Manhattan and still live here, drawing full-time. Clients include The New Yorker, The New York Times, Fantagraphics, MTV, IFC Films, Random House, The Believer, Bloomberg, J Walter Thompson, The National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico City and many more. I also draw the weekly Metro Diary illustration for The New York Times.
