got to see the great man do his power point presentation at powell’s tonight. weirdly there were tons of over-caffeinated teenage girls in line. it was super-hot and claustrophobic waiting. it must be so weird for him to see these fans of his who are so much like his own creations! I felt so bad for him having to endure the focus-group silliness of the new york times when this toon was running, though as a cartoonist I suppose you can’t afford to eff things up with the times (money or career-wise), but still. anyway, love the man and his work. a big thrill to say hello, if too brief, if only we could have swung over to the driftwood room for a hot toddy.
