Back in the day ('91?, 92?), when I was a struggling cartoonist in NYC's East Village I managed to get by with a little help from my friends. That included Mark Newgarden, who hired me to paint the original art for Nicktoons Bubble Gum cards over at TOPPS and graphic designer Ty Cumbie who hired me to photograph my friends for the covers of books about psychological disorders. It's been a while since I'd seen any of them, but recently I ran across two.
These were guys I performed with frequently at Ludlow Street's NADA basement theater starting back in '88 or so when it was called Funaboules... I suppose this was my intro to publishing.
