Fan Art Saturday Falls On A Wednesday, Peeps Edition

My friend Joe Sutliff, who had some time on his hands and has talent to burn, sent me these Peep Dioramas he did for the Washington Post's annual Peeps competition. I am astounded, as I'm sure you are too.

It's stuff like this that makes drawing a comic strip worthwhile. As anyone who's actually eaten a Peep will agree, I'm glad they've found another use for them as building material, and I hope they develop some way of constructing low cost, environmentally friendly housing out of the damn things. And that when they do they can find people who'd be willing to live in spongy pink and yellow houses.

Joe also made this, Alice's big ugly fountain. It's amazing, and it actually works! Dang, Joe!

A History of Valentine's Day Cards

This is also from the Post mag, Valentine's Day '03. And every word of it is true. I was shocked to find out that my editor didn't know that diarist Samuel Pepys' name is pronounced "Peeps", especially as I'd only learned it the day before. I always thought it was Pep-eez, which is actually a stomach antacid.
