A couple of weeks back I sent out my Cartoonist Survey to cartoonist Nick Galifianakis. Nick wrote back that he'd be happy to answer my questions but that it would have to wait a while since he was busy on a publicity tour for his new book, "If You Loved Me, You'd Think This Was Cute". Come to find out one of the places on his tour was the Barnes & Noble in Burlington, MA, just a 30 minute ride from my home. My wife Patti and I along with my fellow cartooning classmate Paula, made the trek to B&N for a fun and entertaining afternoon. Nick's presentation was filled with wit, wisdom and drawings.

Thanks to Nick for a funny and thought provoking presentation.
I'm a fifty-something year old married guy who is referred to as "The Geek" by my wife. I grew up in the 60’s-70's as a huge fan of the Big Bad Bruins, Godzilla, Rock and Blues Music, Comics, all things scary, drawing and reading. Hmm...doesn't sound like a geek to me... I work for a financial institution as a Web QA tester. I am happily married and have been for 20 years. I enjoy cartooning and drawing in pen and ink and occasionally will add some watercolor. I have been playing the guitar for years and just recently taught myself the ukulele. I love classic Sci-Fi and Monster movies. Preferably in Black and White.
