For those keeping track, I started assisting Craig Macintosh back in 2011 inking and coloring on the Sundays. The Easter bunny strip for March 31, 2013 was where I started my tenure and was in charge of the whole package – pencils, inks and coloring.

Last but not least – I had just bought a new car in 2010 that promptly broke down on the drive down to Chicago. Luckily I hadn’t driven that far and I was able to switch to the old reliable 1998 Dodge.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day – Denis Leary Edition

For those who may not know who Denis Leary is, he’s a comedian
and the star and co-creator of the television show Rescue Me.

He did not play the Green Goblin in Spider-Man (2002).

And even though the Goblin is green, I don’t know how Irish he is.
