Interests: I love good graphic novels like Fun Home, Maus, and Persepolis. The rest can pretty much go to hell. I am working on a graphic novel that will probably take YEARS to finish. I have been a professional cartoonist and illustrator for over 25 years. I have written and illustrated five books, and my cartoons and illustrations have appeared in publications too numerous to mention. I also wrote the first episode of "The Simpsons," and an episode of "Pee-wee's Playhouse" but when that turned out to be not how most tv shows got written, I lost interest. I am almost finished with a screenplay I have been working on with my writing partner and glamour technician.

This looks awesome. Definitely on the genius breakfast of the day list. I don't want to continue to harp on the poached-eggs-not-being-a-big-deal thing, Adam. It's one of those skills I assumed was beyond me for years, as much as I adored poached eggs. Then one day I got out my super-duper Mauviel copper pan that I rescued from a thrift store (proudest possession!), filled it with water, poured in a dollop of white vinegar, let it boil and cracked my eggs directly into it. I let them cook for about 3 minutes, then I use a spider to lift them out and drain on paper towels before setting them gently on whatever my genius breakfast of the day is! No big deal! But I too am a devotee of Smitten Kitchen. PROPS!
