Hi there. I'm Emily. I'm a cartoonist and illustrator. Welcome to my website.

I live in Brooklyn, NY, with my husband, our daughter, and a small orange cat.

My illustration work has been in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Globe and Mail, Newsweek, and lots and lots of other places. 

I make cartoons for The New Yorker, mostly, but also sometimes MAD Magazine, the New Statesman, and other places. I have a weekly strip called Lulu Eightball that carries the jokes that are too vulgar for grown-up publications and too racy for MAD. 

I wrote and drew a book called These Things Ain't Gonna Smoke Themselves (Bloomsbury USA). I am currently at work on a book of cartoons and essays called Mama Tried. It is about parenting and will be published by Grand Central Publishing.

I also perform, using the magic of PowerPoint and/or markers, for adults and children.

The links on this site will tell you more about all of this, as well as how to get in touch with me, which I hope you do.

Courage,

Emily
