That gentleman bears a striking resemblance to Bruce McCulloch.

I hope Mr. McCulloch isn't insulted... ~ James

I've often noticed that the verbotoons have striking similarities to famous people. I wonder if the artist uses reference photos...

As Kurt Vonnegut said of his novels, this artwork is fiction and "All persons living or dead are purely coincidental, and should not be construed." Except of course, for the drawing of Vonnegut himself, which is meant to be who it appears to be. ~ James

Everybody's coincidental? All 12 billion of us? I like the sound of that. And I definitely agree that you shouldn't construe anybody. It's just not nice, even if they are already dead.

CONGRATS! INSULTANT is simple yet effective. I wish i could learn not to use a large word when a diminutive one will do. Economy is everything.
