This is fun, I’ve started writing/drawing a regular column for Lucky Peach, the best food magazine around!
In this new Cooks & Chefs issue, Wylie Dufresne was kind enough to let me tag along with him for an entire day and I even gobbled up a meal at his restaurant, wd-50. Want to read five pages of dumb jokes about it? Buy Lucky Peach issue 9!
Also in this issue: gorgeous art by Domitille Collardey, Lacey Micallef, Ping Zhu, and Sophia Foster-Dimino, AND my favorite food critic Jonathan Gold also has a new regular column!!? Joy!

I did the pouch and cover illustration & design for Guts, a mini magazine inside Lucky Peach’s current Cooks & Chefs Issue. You tear open the stomach to find Guts! Today I took my copy to the Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico. Great place to swim? Exactly. Front cover by Lacey Mcallef.

Here is my illustration on the world’s first stem cell burger published in Hemispheres Magazine. You can read the article here. [It was actually flipped horizontally in print, but I like it better this way]

If you have been thinking, “This series has been long on cheer and short on full frontal male nudity” then this is the episode for you.
Snort some crushed candy canes and WATCH NOW.

Join us for part 2 of Yuletide Yingtime, as quixotic elfin editor Chris Ying continues his expedition into the peppermint-y heart of Swedish Christmas.
And make sure to tune in for the shocking* conclusion of this miniseries tomorrow!
(If you missed part 1, you can find it here.)
(*The conclusion probably won’t be shocking unless Ying shows up to dinner at Fäviken in a holiday-themed body stocking or something. A boy can dream! - PFM)
Update: The conclusion, aka part 3, is now up for your viewing pleasure.

Here, for your viewing pleasure, is part 1 of Yuletide Yingtime, wherein Lucky Peach Editor in Chief Chris Ying comes out of the pine-scented closet about his deep, mature, and sensual love for Christmas. It is non-denominational, set in Sweden, and schmaltzier than dinner at Sammy’s Roumanian.
Ying made it with his buddy Ira Chute of Dark Rye. Please fire up a glass of mulled wine, get cozy in your reindeer slippers, and enjoy.
(Update: for part 2 of Chris’ yuletide adventures, click thisaway.)
(Update #2: You can now watch the epic conclusion, aka part 3, of Yuletide Yingtime.)
