#360: 10 Years of Meditation, Millie in Philly & Give the Gift of (a drawing of your) Kids!
+ NO-vember, Flying Contraption Sketchbook & Morris hides from the Inspector
I’m writing this week’s edition from a very emptied-out New York Public Library— everyone has fled New York for the Thanksgibbons holiday. I would implore you all to thank your local gibbon for all they’ve done this past year.
A Special Holiday Sketch Offer!
This week I thought I might jump on the ooooooold Black Friday bandwagon and give a very special limited offer for you— my dear Substack subscribers:
Give the gift of a personalized sketch!
As a New York Cartons subscriber, you can get 30% off a very special limited-edition author-signed copy of the new book “You’re Not A Real Parent Until…” with a HAND-DRAWN CARTOON OF YOUR KID(s) ON THE INSIDE COVER!
Simply reply to your receipt email, along with a photo or two of the kids and their names, along with their parents' names, and you will receive your book, complete with a signed dedication from the authors. Reply to this email if you have any questions at all or…
1. Millie in Philly!
Sophie (I call her Millie because her family name is Miller) just finished running her second full marathon in 2 weeks: She completed the Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday 23 minutes faster than NYC. A very proud Morris was there to greet her at the finish line.
2. Episode #2: The Night Before Christmas
Don’t forget, you can catch me on HBO Max as the co-host and judge of the holiday show “Buddy VS. Christmas”. Episode 2 is a real doozie— Buddy goes up against one of the best artists in the glass-blowing game! Take a peek here or watch on HBO Max.
3. Picture This: Thanksgiving Edition!
This weekend I’ll be both hosting and drawing for our comedy + cartooning show at Union Hall. The line-up is great, the timing is not. If there were ever a time to show up, this would be it: A lot of people are out of town for the holidays, so we may have fewer bums on seats than usual. You can snag an earlybird ticket here.
Paid Subscribers received the full post below last week. If you’d like to receive additional posts, now is the time to upgrade! Click the offer in the header above.
Frenchie Christmas Cards!
From the drawing board…
I have a new book about dogs coming out next Fall— be the first to find out more here!
While I do love the convenience of a Wacom tablet/Xenselabs tablet/iPad pro or whatever you like using… I can’t ever replicate the joy of using analog tools. I’m starting a new Substack in 2024 called “Process Junkie” to explore all of the joys of the Process of making art. If you’re interested in that kind of thing, you can sign up here.
“Someone you might like” has its own page! You can see all of the Someones right here.
Until next time,
Did some charming genius accidentally FWD this to you? Why not just make things official and get these dispatches straight from the horse’s mouth each week:
