Stripped


Dave Kellett, who's a smart and articulate guy as well as the cartoonist behind Sheldon and Drive, has been working with cinematographer Fred Schroeder to film a documentary on the modern state of the comic strip for a couple of years now (and probably thinking about it most his life). Suddenly he's got a trailer put together and a Kickstarter site up for it. For donations of $35 K he'll come to your house and powerwash your deck. More reasonable donations also accepted.

Would he rebuild the deck before the power washing? If so, perhaps I'm interested . . .

Richard thanks so much for the support and being a part of the doc!

But you say "peanuts" so well!

Threw in $25 even though it looks like funding has been achieved already! Tell them to spend it on pen nibs or something.
