Last One for the Road

posted on November 14, 2018

Just wrapped my last and best talk/signing event at Baldwin Wallace University last evening and it was a terrific end to the road season for this year. I’d like to thank everyone at Baldwin Wallace University for all of the work that went into making the event the success that it was from the promotion on NPR, to the tech help, to the chocolate chip cookies and punch they had for everyone. I also appreciate them choosing Lisa’s Story as one of the selections for their Graphic Novels course this Fall.

I even got to swap sketches with a student/artist during the book signing. She got a sketch of Lisa in her book, and she shared the sketch of me that she made during my talk.

Ephemera – George Kennedy – Crankshaft 1

posted on

Among my many trysts with Holly Wood, my encounter with the actor George Kennedy was particularly memorable because of the extent that he went to to show how he could become Crankshaft. Kennedy, who was a big Crankshaft fan, optioned the movie and TV rights for a period of time. I thought that he would be perfect for the part, but was even more convinced when he took the pains to have himself made-up for the role. The result, as you’ll see in this and subsequent pix, was nothing short of astonishing, but, sadly, for George especially, it wasn’t to be. Just another date with Holly that didn’t quite pan out.
