I was asked recently to draw Super Ray, the comic book character/alter ego that Ray Hueston wrote & drew in HBO's "Bored To Death," played by Zach Galifianakis, who show creator/writer/friend, Jonathan Ames, loosely based on me (looooooosely) and who's comix art I illustrated. It was fun to convey a new iteration of that massive python of a penis.

Hard Booking

Spell it out or don't. Your "Vague Booking" is boring. And, don't use social networking as "place holders" or "milestone markers." The internet is not your file cabinet or your scrap book no matter how much you try. That cyber-cloud in the sky is just like the weather. If ya got somethin', say sumthin' and move on up. Bonus point if you can make it clickable. ‪#‎HardBooking‬
