Fairly OddParents!

My cousin-in-law Ed had his first Fairly OddParents episode air last week. It would have been more helpful, I suppose, if I had written this post last week. Anyway, you will just have to trust me that the episode was awesome. Congratulations, Ed!

Free Exercise Clause

Here is my illustration for the Free Exercise Clause. This clause prevents Congress from passing any law which prohibits the free exercise of religion. For example, no persecuting Pilgrims. (Ahem, King James I.)

David Marc Fischer

I am very sad to report that David Marc Fischer died on August 6th from a rare and aggressive form of leukemia. He was 47.
David and I collaborated on a number of projects, including the Penguin Tilley pictured left. I will miss his energy, his wit, and his kindness.
Here are the links to David's blogs, Blog About Town and Gluten-Free NYC. And here is Daniel Radosh's tribute to David.
Update: Here is Bob Mankoff's tribute to David via Emdashes.

Waste Not

I took the girls to the MoMa today and saw the Waste Not installation by Song Dong. Song Dong is an artist from China. For nearly 60 years, his mother lived in a tiny house in Beijing. And during this time, she apparently never threw anything away, ever. The Waste Not installation shows a scale model of her house, and displays the entire contents that she accumulated over 60 years. (See here for 16 Miles of String's photostream of the exhibit.)
The house was smaller than my apartment, and it was amazing to me that so many items could have fit into such a small space. But then again, as I look at the piles of crap in my apartment, maybe it isn't so unlikey after all.
