HOW AMAZING IS THIS?!?
Good as Lily artist Jesse Hamm earned his bandannaed self a fan for life when he revealed — after a weekend spent sitting across from us sketching — what he’d been working on.
Left to right, that’s intern Sam Alden, former intern Carlos Hernandez Fisher, cartoonist Tim Sievert, publisher Brett Warnock, and publicity ninja Leigh Walton.
Makes me want to get a haircut, but he totally nailed us all! Thanks, Jesse!

Well, that was a fantastic weekend for your humble correspondent — shown here at the feet of industry wise men Charles Brownstein and (off screen) Larry Marder. Thanks to Steve Lieber for the photo. for Not much time to recover (and bask in the glory of Sunday night’s karaoke tour de force, featuring Carolyn Main and a duet between myself and Tim Sievert), as there’s piles of exciting work to be done ahead.
Including — hey, what’s this exciting announcement?
Note to self: for future shows, schedule time in the mornings to, like, shower and stuff.
