Dude, my wife's been on me for a MINUTE about my raggedy glasses.

They are SO raggedy, they are in that ill zone where they NEVER seem to really get clean. Like, there's always a smug SOMEWHERE on the lenses, no matter how much I clean 'em...

My eyes STAY leakin', dawg...

Oh yeah, and I gave you a shout out in an interview I did over at Sequential Tart.

Peep:

ST: What comics would you cite as influences on your work?

MS: My comic influences are two-fold. There are newjack artists that influence the Type Illy art style, like Jeremy Love, the Artxilla crew and Jamar Nicholas of Detective Boogaloo fame. Their styles mirror the urban, hip hop aesthetic that I like. But you'd also have to throw in Frank Quitely, Chris Cross, Masashi Kishimoto (the creator of Naruto), Steve Dillon, and maybe Paul Pope, too, from a visual standpoint.

YO! Thanks for the lookout!

Man, I needed glasses SO bad. I knew it was time, when I went to a gallery opening and I was chatting up some people. I noticed they kept looking at the corner of my face - my busted frames.

WACK!

Ha Ha, I used to have some really old glasses, They broke three times, The first time I replaced one of the things on the side with the same part from another pair. Next time I had to glue it with this "glue" that you make by mixing a two-colored paste. I even polished the goddamn repairment and airbrushed it black. The bad thing was... I never was able to fold them again :P
