Harvey Pekar died last week. I can't say I was a huge fan of his comic, American Splendor, but I loved the movie and I can appreciate the challenge of taking your life as a file clerk and making it interesting enough for publication and success.

So, inspired by Mr. Pekar, and wishing to improve my black-and-white skills, I will try to illustrate a few moments around here from time to time.

Hmmmm? Should I have a title? How about a working title of West Hartford Splendor? My Life in Black and White? Any ideas out there?

Anyway - here's a little moment from last Sunday. KOI ON TV

You have seen koi before ha!
I must say I loved Pekar's comics. I think your Koi on TV was great! It reminds me of his work.

This is gonna be awesome. Can't wait for more.

Okay, here are my ideas for titles:

Ninja Woman or Ninja Mom works well
Magoo and Me
Suburban Ideal

But whatever you call it, I love it already.
