President Obama’s Last-Minute To Do List

Looking for today’s comic? Here it is:

I posted it here because my run with “The Strip” at The New York Times‘ Sunday Review has come to an end. I want to thank everyone there for giving my cartoons a prominent home for the past five years and change. And I give the most thanks to the art directors who patiently waited while I blew past deadlines, and the copy editors who saved me from many embarrassing typos.

As you can tell from the comic you just read, I haven’t stopped drawing weekly cartoons. Now that I’m no longer confined by print dimensions, I’ve switched things up to a more smartphone-friendly vertical format. Here are links to places where you can continue reading my weekly comic:

GoComics

Daily Kos Comics

Alternet

And now that my schedule has lightened, I’m able to draw more exclusive stuff for The Nib. I’m already working on a bunch of new comics for them starting next week.

You can also follow me on Twitter or Facebook to know whenever I publish something new.

If you run a publication and want to include my cartoons, or commission exclusive work, get in touch!

Finally, if you want to ask me a bunch of questions about what’s going on at The New York Times, I’ll save you some time: I don’t know! I’m a freelancer and only went inside their building twice. The elevators are confusing.


America’s Top Sports Cop

America's Top Sports CopLike most Americans, my interest in soccer peaked with youth soccer (Go BYSA!) and only returns during the men’s and women’s World Cup tournaments. But anyone with a passing interest in the game can tell FIFA is terribly corrupt.

Last week’s FIFA arrests were surprising and long overdue. Awarding the 2022 World Cup to the sweltering desert nation of Qatar was more than a bad idea, it’s been deadly for the workers tasked with building the infrastructure for the games. It’s a shame corrupt banks aren’t subjected to anywhere near the same level of scrutiny as corrupt sports leagues.
