Alec is a cartoonist who lives in Alameda, California. He has been self-publishing his Ignatz Award winning comic book PHASE 7 since 2002. To pay the bills, Alec works as a freelance illustrator and a comics educator.

The sheer amount of humanity on display in these two volumes is almost too much to bear. I already think of the daily comic strip as one of the most personal forms of comics - where you really get to know the cartoonist. But having Thompson's comment ...more

Ugh! I enjoy each book in this series less and less. The conceit of the first two books is rock solid - a professor and his son arrive in a strange land and document their adventures in a journal - which you are reading. Gurney's magnificent illustra ...more

I liked the first Dinotopia book so much, I decided to read the rest of the series. This one has more of the same stunning illustrations, but, uh... the writing really takes a left turn! The gentle pace of the first book and its themes of nature and ...more

Quentin Blake
“I don't wait for inspiration. I'm not, in fact, quite sure what inspiration is, but I'm sure that if it is going to turn up, my having started work is the precondition of its arrival.”
Quentin Blake, Words and Pictures

Studs Terkel
“Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”
Studs Terkel
