A few phone snapshots from Saturday’s book signing party in Georgetown:
Tony Millionaire is one of the few cartoonists whose real life presence is actually larger and more colorful than you’d imagine. Each time I’ve seen him he’s worn a suit and drunk heroic amounts of beer (you can usually spot a few cans under the table). He’s one of my faves. :)
Some amazing, original portraits. Happy belated Birthday, Elvis.
A Millionaire contribution to Ian’s impressive Animal sketchbook. Aaand the cutest pooch I’ve ever seen- proof that only the classiest ladies were in attendance.
Other non-photographed highlights: Gavin’s Cheshire Cat sketchbook, a brief cameo by Charles Burns, and a showing of ‘Everybody Loves Drinky Crow’ which is extra-fun to see on a big(ger than usual) screen with Lynn cheering, ‘Go for it, Drinky!’
This book is a crock of shit. Any one of my drawing or design students can take a number of photos from magazines, etc. and create better pen & ink drawings in a flash!
I think this book is a crock of AWESOME but best of luck to your talented students.
