Paul Giamatti gets around.

What a joyous night last night as, unbeknownst to us, we celebrated Mitchell's Birthday while welcoming Wayne into the Guild, seeing Dave still alive and watching Andy's full on transformation to bad ass. It helped that Gretchen is an amazing model. What was incredibly coincidental was the fact that SO MANY of our artists have randomly run into Paul Giamatti and had a sketch of him in their sketchbooks! What are the chances? It would be so funny if many others happened to have drawn him. I wonder?

These boots were made for slayin'. . .

. . .and that's just what they'll do. One of these days these boots are gonna slay all over yooooooou. Gretchen nailed the Viking warrior goddess Sif this weekend and reminded us that woe be to your foe and there be no greater sound to a warrior than listening to the lamentations of your enemy's women. Nice seeing Alice & Sharon again after a LONG hiatus. Speaking of which, we only have 1 more Super Hero Saturday left before it's put out to pasture, so be on the look out.
