Where Frank Zappa got it

This is the actual cover that inspired Zappa's album title. See the red type, lower right.

Still, I think he should have gone with "Sin happy vacationists."

Eat fire, banjo jokesters!


Here's an amazing video from the American Museum of Natural History that shows the known universe, the image gradually pulling away from Mount Everest and all the way out to light reflected from the big bang.

Sort of makes things like whether or not I get our Christmas cards out on time seem a little less important...

We live in interesting times

I first drew this for The Eagle back in 2005. The next year it was reprinted in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the highest circulation newspaper in Germany.

Then out of the blue today I received a request from Australian Mensa magazine to reproduce it as well. Wild. (Hey -- a banjo-player gets work in a Mensa publication??? What's wrong with this picture...)
