I've written/drawn four books. One of them was even published in a foreign language. There's also an app for the iPhone and iPod touch. Should you feel like purchasing any of them, I thank you kindly.
FLIP FLOP FLY BALL: AN INFOGRAPHIC BASEBALL ADVENTURE
Published July 2011 by Bloomsbury USA
Based on my website, Flip Flop Fly Ball, this book is all about America's national pastime.
Infographics a-plenty, drawings, photographs, and a few essays, too. And a forward by esteemed baseball writer Rob Neyer. It's 160 pages covering many different aspects of the game, and what it is like to be an adult European man discovering and falling in love with an alien sport.
Here's some stores that you could throw your money at: Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and Indie Bound.
Published in 2009
1,000 Minipops all together in your iPhone or iPod touch. Easy-to-use search; toolbar navigation; a "guess who?" quiz mode; viewable alphabetically or random; Minipops link to relevant Wikipedia pages; save to Photos to use for contacts or email. Additional Minipops will be available as free updates.
Available on the iTunes App Store.
ATLAS, SCHMATLAS: A SUPERIOR ATLAS OF THE WORLD
Published in 2007 by Harry N Abrams
Extracts and a lot of info about Atlas, Schmatlas at the book's own website, here, if indeed an inanimate object can have a website.
If, though, you can't be arsed to go over to that website, and heaven knows, clicking links can be exhausting, it's an atlas with jokes in it.
Not unlike the Onion's atlas with jokes in it. Annoyingly, their atlas was published barely a month after mine, and, as you'd imagine, it's sales have eclipsed those of Atlas, Schmatlas. Not that I'm bitter. Their book is funny. Mine is funny, too. Plus, you don't get to see a drawing of a poodle doing a shit in their atlas, so I think I win the battle o' the comedy atlases.
Should you wish to purchase it, those of you in the Great British Isles could do so from Amazon.co.uk.
Here's a couple of options for potential American readers: Amazon.com, and Barnes & Noble.

MINIPOPS: FAMOUS PEOPLE DRAWN REALLY SMALL
Published in 2004 by Mitchell Beazley
This is a collection of over 800 drawings of pop stars and other famous folk from the most celebrated part of Flip Flop Flyin'. It's small and chunky, 128 pages, and hardback.
Here's a little Quicktime movie of me flicking through the book which, I'm sure you'll agree, is a very professional trailer.
You should be able to order it at your local book shop, they probably would enjoy your custom more than one of the big chain stores. Should you need it, the ISBN thingy you need to order it is 1845330293.
If you wanna order it from Amazon, here are some links: Amazon.ca, Amazon.fr, Amazon.de, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.co.uk, and Amazon.com.
