Apparently Slow News Day

This Week Newspapers, a suburban weekly around these parts, must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel for feature articles because they published a story on me last week which includes the most awkward picture of me ever (see above)… and that’s saying something. Clearly the bat-stuff in my studio intrigued the author. I refused to put on the suit for him but I did throw a couple of batarangs around to demonstrate my mad batarang skilz.

By way of clarification (should you be sufficiently bored today to follow the link and read the article), it is not a foregone conclusion I will be winning the election I am nominated for office for as author of the article declares… although I am running unopposed if there was ever a chance for Alfred E. Neuman to get voted into an office as the lesser of two evils, this might be it.

    Ohmygawd!!! In that photo if we put that weird mustache on you, it would be the spitting image of Paul Teutel, Sr., from Orange County Choppers.

    Nice article Tom!

    Is always good to know a little bit more about a talented guy as you.
    I keep visiting your blog to learn and to be inspired to draw even more.
    Maybe one day I can achieve this dream to gain my life with my drawings.

    I always say to my friends that you are my talent reference and maybe someday I’ll have classes with the caricature master! 🙂

    I’m doing some drawings and would be a really pleasure if you could have a minute to take a brief look and make a comment. Check out:

    Thanks and regards,

    Nice article, Tom! Great to see you get some bio-print, you’re an interesting guy! And it’s nice to be know as “the Batman guy”! I’m known as “the freak” or “the drunk” in my neighborhood, so count yourself among the lucky!

    “It is not a foregone conclusion I will be winning the election” for NCS president. I guess I jumped the gun congratulating you (via e-mail) the other day, Tom, but the sentiments were from the heart and I really do believe the NCS will be in good hands when/if you are elected.
