"The Old Goat," self-portrait. This was inspired by a photograph taken of me at a petting zoo a few years ago. Fellow artist Jeremy Pinkham suggested the photo should be a large oil painting, complete with red, velvet curtain in the background. This one is in pixels rather than oils, obviously, but I hope it retains the intended effect. I thought it was high time I produced a self-portrait which more accurately reflected my age and the subsequent surliness that comes from a lifetime of dedication. And I hoped that a portrait might also be just slightly Satanic.

You folks remember The Symptoms, right? My illustrated column of autobiographical meltdowns and fist-shaking observations of modern irritations? Well, it still lives, and it's bitchier than ever! Now you can find The Symptoms on the Substack platform, the hip new blogging site featuring all your favorite online columnists who got fired from Politico and Slate.
It's an exciting time for The Symptoms because I'm currently chronicling my relocation from podunk South Carolina to Wuppertal, Germany. Cultures clash and relative hilarity ensues! Please hit the link and subscribe to The Symptoms on Substack because I really, REALLY need to talk to someone in English.
