All-knowing, all-powerful, multi-dimensional, creative being ... and drawer of funny pictures

Anonymous asked: Hi Marc, Loved Tug & Buster! Any chance of a re-boot? Cheers! Alex

Thank you, Alex! Unfortunately, there’s always a chance these guys will return. :o) Here they are in a recent drawing, albeit slightly revised/updated (and sans cigs) …

Throwback Thursday, and Mother’s Day, too! My mom is holding me in this about-as-early-as-you-can-get photo (taken by Dad). She crossed over in 1998, and I still miss her.

shamefulclutter asked: New fan here - LOVE YOUR WORK! Is it true you are a fellow Smaltimorean?

Thank you! Yes … I’m originally from the Chicago area but have lived in Baltimore for many years.

pancreases asked: Your art style is really cool, I loved the work you did in The Sandman... have a good one!

Many thanks!

Anonymous asked: Hello Marc, I wanted to ask if you are doing commission pieces for this year's San Diego Comic-Con? I recently saw a piece you did on the entire Endless family and was wondering if you still do pieces? I love your artwork, in particular your rendition of Morpheus. Please let me know if you are up for doing commissions. Many thanks!

Hello! Sorry for the late response. I’m not planning to attend the con in San Diego … but I do sometimes do commissions via the mail. As I’m running very (very) late on a few at present, try me in a month or so at my e-mail address (on the bio page of my Tumblr) if you’re interested.

Nattily dressed and coiffed me … posing stiffly, happily in front of my grandparents’ house on Keystone Avenue in Chicago in 1966… probably after Sunday School. Photo by Dad.
