My webshop will be closing for the summer on the 13th of July. It will reopen in early September.
My next published project will be The Snooty Bookshop, a set of fifty postcards featuring literary cartoons chosen from You're All Just Jealous of my Jetpack and Baking with Kafka. It will be released in late October but can be pre-ordered now: Amazon (UK), Amazon (US), Wordery (worldwide).
I am attending a few events in the coming weeks. Click on these links for details:
I drew a comic about Karl Marx (in German) for Le Monde Diplomatique.
The shop on this site will close on the 11th of December, but please order sooner rather than later if you want things in time for Christmas.
Drawn and Quarterly are bringing me and Baking with Kafka to the US tomorrow. See the poster below, or get more details on their site. If you can't come to the tour, you can get Baking with Kafka in good bookshops and online:
order at amazon.co.uk (UK)

I'm going to be coming to London, Scotland and France to promote Baking with Kafka, please come and see me at Burley Fisher, Superheros, Quai des Brumes, Toppings & Co, Dundee Literary Festival or the British Library. Scroll down to the last post to see my US dates.
You are invited to the launch party for my forthcoming book of cartoons will be at Gosh Comics on the 8th of September:
I've put a few more original drawings into the shop.
I got my hands on a real copy of Baking with Kafka which collects one-hundred and fifty of my one-page cartoons and will be published in the autumn by Drawn and Quarterly in North America and Canongate in the UK.
I will be at ELCAF signing books at the Drawn and Quarterly booth, on Friday 16th June 1-2pm and Saturday 2-3pm & 4-5pm. We will have early copies of the new paperback edition of Goliath as well as my other books.
The New York Times published an all-comics issue of their weekend magazine featuring many excellent cartoonists. I created a two-page story titled 'View Finder' (shown below) as well as creating a comic-strip editor's letter and hand-drawing the lettering most of the design elements in the magazine. Thanks to Matt Wiley, Caitlin Roper and the NYT magazine team who created the issue.
I have added ten original drawings to the shop. [update: These are all now sold. I'll add more in a few weeks]
