Here's a Little Something
I contributed this tiny monkey doodle to Chris Estey's Get Well Quick Card last year and literally forgot all about it. His wife Heidi showed up with a little zine thing that Chris had put together all about his sickness (a kind of flesh-eating thing) and his convalescence, and this image was part of the card reproduced on the cover.
Looking at it was weird, since I had no recollection of drawing it whatsoever. I had assumed that my friend Jon Morris had drawn it, but it's a lot less sophisticated than anything you could attribute to him, even on his worst gin-and-flu soaked days. When I realized it was me what done it, I had that feeling you get when you see an old photograph of yourself. Not recognition, but resignation: yeah, that was me.
I do think it's kind of cute, and once I scan it I'll post a better version of it here. This is the cell phone version.
