Talk to Nick!


Hey everybody, now's your chance! Go to Washington Post Cartoon Genius Nick Galifianakis's online chat and ask him questions, like: how he does it, what he draws with, how's his dog, what's it like to illustrate an advice column, and would he please teach us some cuss words in Greek? His chat is at 1 pm EST at The Art of Nick .

And ask him about his glamorous globe trotting, his years in Hollywood and about the time he found a rubber sink stopper in his plate of eggs benedict at a fancy restaurant in Virginia. No, don't ask him that, just ask him how he got to be such a dang good artist & writer and when is he gonna do a comic strip?

I've always loved his work. The drawing is fantastic, of course, but the writing is just as good. Great, dryly humorous take on the advice column, and they work as stand-alone cartoons in their own right.

Wow, the mad gushing just doesn't stop! First Bill W. and now Nick's praises (well, not the fact that you apparently broke up his marriage, but the OTHER stuff). This blog is great and I'm sure you will soon be hugely famous. Of course you are still expected to come hang out on our deck occasionally. Oh yeah, and bring beer...

Erin! I wouldn't miss such good company for the world, even if I do have to byob. And I hadn't gotten a chance to push little trains around a track in way too long.

As for the question, "When is he going to do a comic strip?", hopefully, never! He is too good - we don't need more competition like that!

:-)

Hungrydog, you're right! What was I thinking? We shoulda tried to dissuade him. It may be too late...
