Beer label designs for Brothers Mark and Jay

Mark calls and says “Can you make beer labels for the beer that me and Jay are brewing– an Oatmeal Stout and a Pale Ale?” and I say “Sure, I’ll draw them with pens and markers and put the Brooklyn skyline in the background,” and Mark says “Great,” and I draw them and then a few weeks later we go to Kinkos and print them and go back to Mark’s house and drink them and cut the labels out carefully and eat bread and paste the labels on to the bottles using milk as an adhesive, which works surprisingly well, and will, according to Mark, make removing the labels from the bottles considerably easier than if we had used rubber cement, which will be nice the next time Mark and Jay brew some more batches of beer and a beer brewing video will be coming soon at Brother Mark’s website (

Blood Teeth: Drinking and drawing

This reminds me of someone I knew in Canada.

And they are all franchises of “Fire and Ice.”

Did you pay your taxes a couple days ago like me?

Pink blazers look better on drawings than on people.

I have no babies.

Three Boys

Things I hate: Owls, Jurrasic Park, Cigarettes, That kid in high school who said “You’re a weird looking kid, aren’t you?.” Things I love: Hackers, Cigarettes, The first warm day of the year when you can see all the pretty girls again, Calexico.

For those of you haven’t seen this or want to see this again, here is this movie, finally public.  It is about childhood, sex, and death, and a young dead cat whose sex is left unkown.
