Sixty Six Project

“Portraits of Sixty Six Friends Who Awe Me”

In mid June, I threw a party to celebrate the death of my social life that would result from having to draw a graphic novel. The next morning, picking through the wreckage, I started feeling really lucky to know my guests. Here was this group of extraordinary people: writers and artists and porn stars and firebrand journalists and rockstars. I thought that maybe I should draw them.

Here’s my capsule of some people I adore, who awe me. Check out their work. They’ll probably awe you too.
