Happy Halloween. Take a cab.


Excess Baggage





Since seeing Sicario, I've been on a bit of a Benecio del Toro kick. Last night, I revisited the 1997 classic "Excess Baggage".

It had it all, baby. Invasive use of the Dave Matthews song, "Crash Into Me"? Check. Police declaring, "The kidnapper used a cell phone, we'll never trace it!" Check. Benecio announcing his weird, quippy dialogue like he was in a wind tunnel? Check.

There's this amazing, weird bit of the movie that I can't draw. Christopher Walken confronts Del Toro, and Del Toro does this crazy, loud, closed-mouth giggle. Then there's this bit depicted above. Both so bizarre and out of plalce that I loved them immediately.



Inside Out West


My twitter pal @theyoungilkim tweeted something about "Inside Out, but with Kanye West's mind" a few weeks ago and I wrote it down in my sketchbook. Last night, I finally had the time to draw a bit of it.

I like the idea that Kanye's Bing Bong is a jumbo jet that wears funny hats and flies him around to exotic locales.

Paul would like me to tell you all that the plane is "aerogyratic". He means it's aerodynamic and it gyrates.


Paging Dr. Phouse



Have you been keeping up with the news on Planned Parenthood? Geez louise. The House Committee hearing was maddening. (Cecile Richards, you are a boss!) I keep seeing the same right-wing article pop up on my facebook feed saying, "PP doesn't give mammograms, shut 'em down!"

It is VERY upsetting. This is healthcare. Why would you want to limit access to healthcare? And for that matter, education. Young people learning what they need to know about sexual health ultimately drives down healthcare costs.

If you're reading this and you've never been to the Planned Parenthood website, go take a look. Click around, see what they offer.


ps. credit to the NYT crossword for the "English Rock Group" crossword clue. I got a laugh out of that one!


Otto zero Otto e crepacuore.


The Los Angeles Opera is running a special: $30 tickets for people 30 and under. GO. You'll enjoy it.

Long-form comic is done. A little preview will be up soon. And possibly another Kanye comic.
