Weekends are a rollercoaster of emotions.  You spend 5 days a week schleppin’ around in a boring outfit, wondering when you’re life became so stressful.  By Thursday, you start taking you’re pent up hostility out on strangers.  When the Walgreens cashier angelically asks,” Would you like to donate one dollar to the children’s hospital?” you shriek,” WOMAN, I DON’T HAVE ANYMORE MONEY FOR YOU!” Then Friday night rolls in and you’re your old self again.  Phrases like “Keep the change!” roll off the tongue and you’re giddy with excitement.  All of your wildest dreams are about to come true, you can feel it…

Cut to Sunday.

Here it is.  How could you let the weekend go by so fast?  What did you even do?  While lying on the couch, brushing crumbs off your shirt – Sunday Night Fear- sets in.  The word Monday flashes in your mind.  NOOOO You’re not ready to start all over again!!!


Comedian and soon-to-be living legend Alex Stein asked me to design a lil’ logo for him.  This is what I came up with.  If you’re in the mood to be entertained, check him out

This is me circa 1996.  I guess I was exhausted from making that thing that’s on top of me and decided to take a nap?  Anyway, I like what’s happening here so I decided to draw it.

From time to time, I get this sudden feeling that something’s off.  I go down the list:  Do I have my wallet?  Did I leave the sink running before I left this morning?  Am I too old to be wearing Keds?  When I simply can’t find a way out of my funk, I put the Big Lebowski in.  After the first five minutes of the movie, I’m back to my old self again.
