Space Cowboy

When my buddy Dan and I were roommates he showed me this comic he made when he was in 8th grade. I think he made it over the course of a summer, drawing a page a day. It was called Space Cowboy. I read a lot of it and told Dan how much I loved it. He thought it was pretty humorous but that it was a terrible story. It was awesome and really well drawn. So, now Dan has his own internet cartoon series called the Meth Minute and he decided to do an episode based on his Space Cowboy character. He cast me to play SC because I think he heard I was sad that he hadn't asked me to do any voices for any cartoons. Dan gave me the comic to re-read and then at the recording studio he just had me talk in the character about my life and adventures. He'd ask me questions and I'd answer as Space Cowboy. It was a lot of fun but I wasn't sure if it was funny or not. Dan edited my rantings and mumblings into something really funny and then did an amazing job with the animation for the cartoon. I think, technically, it's his best episode yet. It looks amazing. So, check it out here.

The New Sessiness

I did a brief interview with The Morning News this week where I talked about my personal fashion style, jobs from the past, artistic influences and my upcoming comic book, Night Business. Check it out here. My friend and co-worker Wendy Whitesell took my picture over in the meatpacking district. Check out Wendy's awesome photography here.
