Glasses, Boondox and FABRICARI

Exhibit A - Jamar's busted-ass specs. Snaps by Mike Manley.

So, let's just jump back into things.

First things first - I can't really see right now. I called my eye doctor, the best (only?) I've had, to make an appointment. You see, I've had the same pair of eyeglasses for damn ear 5 years, and I finally broke them. With things that expensive and fragile, I usually break them in under a month's time, as I'm known for being 'expensive'. I like and want nice things, then summarily break them just as fast as I get them. Nice clothes? Ruined. New phone? OOPS! I dropped it into the toilet. (Well, that never happened, but you see where I'm going with that).

Anyway, her secretary, who is also very nice, asked me if I wanted to come in 'right now' and with no good excuse not to, I rolled in the eye spot at 4:00, and in quick order was blinded by eyedrops that rob you of your sight. My pupils are the size of manhole covers, and when going into the supermarket after dinner, I hissed at the lights like a cornered vampire at dawn.

So yeah, my eyes hurt. I'm all squared away now, and now join the NEW GLASSES LEAGUE, like my good personal friends Mike Manley and Mike Wieringo. Well, not yet - I haven't gotten new ones yet, but I'm closer than before. LATER, CRAZY-GLUED NERDFRAMES!


So yo, my man Steve 'Fabricari' Harrison and I go way back. Actually, It's weird when you think about it - but I've been in the 'industry' for close to 10 years, and I have a lot of great, old friends. Fabs is one of them. He was one of the earliest guys I met in the game doing comics, and his selftitled FABRICARI comics were off the hook, and he's still on his grind.

He just launched a little project where he makes movies of him drawing pages, and it's really cool. Also cool is that in this one, he's drawing to my man Cat Garzas' band. Go show him love.


ALSO, About the BOONDOCKS? Remember what Mr. Horse from Ren & Stimpy said?

"Hmmmmm... Hmmmmmmmmm.... NO SIR, DIDN'T LIKE IT."

I mean, it's interesting, but it's not hitting me yet. I'll keep watching it, but it's unpleasently not what I expected. No hate involved.

Man, it's crazy to think how long we've all been at this. My wife knows you all on a first name basis, from my incessant chatter. I'm glad you dig those movies. I wish there were a more qualified pair of hands under that camera. And Cat's music makes damn-near anything sound good. I'll be using more of his music in the near future.

Sorry to hear about the glasses. When I was a kid I suffered from the same ailment: new glasses would mean a basketball right to the face. krazy glue and tape. What a dork.

I need new glasses too.
