The look of My Spectickles has changed throughout time. It didn’t start off as a single goal, but as a series, because I had a ludicrous idea about Dolbeer’s Grand Central Station at night in my head. There were a lot of them, but they weren’t all cartoonists. Jim Unger, Charles Schulz, and Mike Peters from comic books, and Mort Gerberg, Mischa Richter, Charles Saxon, and Robert Weber from the New Yorker. Simply outstanding. H. L. Mencken and Mark Twain’s books inspire and amuse me; if you haven’t read “Innocents Abroad,” you’ve been missing out on something truly entertaining.

More illustration work has always been an aim of mine. I never get tired of flipping through books by Golden Age illustrators like Charles Dana Gibson, Arthur Rackham, and others. This is the kind of work I’d like to spend time developing and honing, despite the fact that it’s very antiquated and has few outlets on the market. I’ve been playing the guitar for a long time and am currently learning a classical composition, despite the fact that the sound of my voice is enough to terrify small creatures and toddlers.
