Top 5 2008 Highlights:
*the birth of the Fetus Formerly Known as Lil Gravy
*the launch of my syndicated daily “the Knight Life”
*the 500-page Dark Horse collection
*my 40-piece exhibition at the Cartoon Art Museum
*and a goddamn Black President-elect!!
There were a lot more crazy things, including comic strip controversy and a slideshow performance in the U.S. Virgin Islands!!
I want to thank everyone for all the support over the years. And all the new folks just discovering my work. 2009 is shaping up to be a very interesting year. Let’s hope we all make through in one peace.
