While having a discussion on the possible merits of assuming a Japanese Nom de Plume (just a exchange started by a off handed comment) the Undergrad Student Worker in my Department, Jonathan Clark came up with this quick sketch. He also re-named me pseudo-Japanese-ishly. The general idea of the conversation was Interweb popularity might ensue if people thought the comic artist was from Japan, land of Manga. In reality such a thing might work of some time, but the unavoidable unmasking and ensuing controversy make the idea very unsavory.
Yes, I do have a large coat like that, but I don’t have large scale brushes or a 5 foot wide wacom pen. That kinda makes me sad.
