Stan Lee, an American Original

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lee when he spoke in Springfield some years back; great guy, signed my drawing of him. His talk was terrific and he could not have been nicer to the endless line waiting to meet him. Including me! He earned his respect; his 1960s writing is still amazing after…

Is Your Event a CIRCUS??

Last weekend I was invited to sketch at one of the most fun events in my long history of Party Drawing. It seemed to be amazing for everyone there, far more than my usual, which is saying a lot. I do not say that lightly… after about forty years of drawing at thousands and thousands…

A Birthday Call??

Some time back I had the chance to work with a fun group on tweaking the website for their business. They offer a service which makes phone calls to people for you, impersonating celebrities. So maybe you have The Arnold calling your mom to wish her a happy birthday, that sort of thing. They had…

Was Your Party A DRAG??

Drawing recently at a Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors picnic — with my old pal John, who was drawing with me — we both noted how some events are more FUN than others. The realtor’s picnic was great fun, nice people, really cool. Not every event is like that. It’s true. Yes. Sure, we know…
