Cartoon Tuesday: Biking to Work with Yehuda Moon and Kickstand Cycling

In honor of Bike to Work Week in Los Angeles, I thought I would bring back "Cartoon Tuesday" with a favorite bicycling comic.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find a comic that amused as much as this drawing on the wall of Gavin Newsom’s communications office, so I was at a loss.

But I did find myself consistently getting a chuckle out of a strip that was appearing regularly in my search about a bearded cyclists adventures.  After a couple of click throughs, I discovered "Yehuda Moon and Kickstand Cycling," a daily comic strip about cycling by a cyclist.   I’m providing a copy of today’s strip above, but to follow Yehuda’s daily adventures, check out their official website, updated daily.

Cartoon Tuesday: Joe’s Parking and Vision Zero Comics

|
It’s a bit of shameless self-promotion, but I wanted to share of pair of comics pages that I drew. These comment on issues that many Streetsblog L.A. readers care about: parking and Vision Zero. I think that parking, of all the issues that dramatically affect cities, is highly misunderstood, and I wanted to see if […]

Cartoon Tuesday: Bear Sprawl

|
Earlier this year, I saw this comic at Salon about what would happen if other species embraced sprawl development, especially into other animals’ habitat, in the same way that humans do.  This comic came back to mind after the SCAG Board decided to choose sprawl development over a chance to make history and clean our […]

Cartoon Tuesday – Vision Zero Comics, No. 2 “Speed Demon”

This isn’t the most insightful thing I’ve drawn, but here’s the second installment of Vision Zero Comics. SBLA readers may recall that I drew the initial installment of Vision Zero Comics back in 2015.
