Bizarro Encounter, Wheels, Hoagy, Mutliple Links

Catching up with a few recent items...

1) Crossing swords with Bizarro cartoonist Dan Piraro

The formidable Mister P visited Pittsburgh Pi Day (March 14) to serve as host for Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School. The art school meets once a month as a fundrasier for The ToonSeum, Pittsburgh's new museum dedicated to the cartoon arts. Our official DJ is the mighty Zombo, but he was tied up hosting the opening of Nathan Mazur's terrific art show, Wee Beasties, so yours truly fumbled and flailed with a borrowed laptop and PA system. Despite the ineptitude of the substitute DJ, the evening was a success.

2) Inflatable Art

Speaking of bizarre items, I was recently contracted to draw four views of a loaded-up shopping cart for a local agency. The photo above was provided by the folks who fabricated the inflatable display.

3) Feline Hooligan

Tag for an auction basket Kim and I assembled for Animal Friends, our amazing local shelter. That's our shelter cat, Hoagy, an Animal Friends alum.

  1. How goofy! I salute the acct exec or whoever came up with the idea for giant inflatable cartoon shopping carts, and then actually convinced a bank to produce them! Do you get one? If not, you should steal one! You could actually get inside it and run around parking lots and stuff!
