R.I.P. Harvey Pekar

In 2003, when the American Splendor film was released, the website hosted a contest where regular folks could illustrate a couple of scripts penned by Pekar himself. I took part, and neither of my attempts won, though both came close. Looking at the comics now, I'm struck by the weird sketchy style of my lines. Never before or since have I drawn in a style like this, and I can only assume it was a manifestation of the extreme stress I was under in my personal life at this time. At any rate, I never had the honor of working with Harvey or officially illustrating one of his comics. Even though these two comics were my unsolicited entries to an open contest, it still felt great to put some images to the master's words. He will be missed.



A comic about Mykl by Athena Tserpeli!

My "friend" Athena Tserpeli from Greece drew this comic about me. I might be mad if it wasn't 100% accurate.



If anyone else wants to draw a comic about me they can send them to:

I welcome your abuse.
