update #11 - An Afrodisiac Pin-up

my friends Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca are starting a collection of pin-ups to coincide with the release of their new book, Afrodisiac. I own the book. It is excellent. i based the Lego Afrodisiac on the Cube Dudes design, invented by Agnus MacLane. That guy is amazing.

update#6 - Rusty Brown's Dad?

my brother Jon is really good at finding hilarious garbage. for xmas, he gave me a stack of old black and white photos of businessmen in their element. when i came across this one, i was shocked by how much this guy resembled W.K. Brown from Chris Ware's Acme Novelty Library. Even the glasses are really similar. This photo looks like it was taken 6 - 8 years before the current storyline.

you can find the newest issue here ( #19 was amazing ) - http://www.fantagraphics.com
