A GREAT ARTICLE in the New York Times by our editor Bruce Headlam about the genesis of Welcome to the New World. This comic strip by Jake Halpern and Michael Sloan documents the lives of a family of Syrian refugees who have recently arrived in America. It appears frequently in the Sunday Review section.

I’m currently working with the author Jake Halpern on Welcome to the New World, a graphic narrative that documents the lives of a Syrian refugee family who have recently arrived in the U.S. It appears frequently in The New York Times / Sunday Review. You can see all the episodes at www.nytimes.com/newworld.
Here are some of my paintings on wood panel featuring Nimbus, the character from my graphic novels and comics. The paintings are about 14" x 20", and are based on my Travels of Nimbus series that I've been working on for several years. I love working on these paintings. They take about 6-8 weeks to complete and require a more relaxed way of working that is a nice complement to editorial assignments with quick deadlines. I'm preparing for 2 exhibits in the next year and am in a groove to complete several more of these soon.
