“I’ve always thought that meals have a very particular narrative structure, so I created this piece as part of a collaborative comic menu that follows the courses in a meal. Chef Tessa Liebman took our idea of July in Christmas, or tiki in winter, and used seasonal ingredients to create riffs on tropical themes. I wanted a feeling of exponential thaw. We inked a room, we inked ourselves, we ate with 30 or so gracious guests. Tanaka Brothers Inc. filmed, and Coffeed hosted. Appropriately, it snowed.” Personal work.
