Barney & Clyde

Congratulations to my friends Gene & Dan Weingarten and David Clark on the launch of their daily comic strip, Barney & Clyde! I wish them great success. I have a personal stake in this as I introduced Gene to David and assured them all that this is a terrific time to launch a syndicated daily newspaper comic strip.

Above is an old illustration I did for Gene's Post Magazine column. I don't remember what the subject matter was for this, but it does look like me and Gene. Kinda.

So much talent going to a medium with no commercial future. It's terribly inspiring!

I only realized today that there's a bandage where your left ear should be.

Subtlety: You haz it!

Nothing to add. The captcha here is penzyme, though. I'm not going to ignore a captcha like penzyme just because I have nothing to add.
